McCollum, Sudi

Sudi McCollum grew up in a creative household with a crazy-ass artist mother and an advertising executive father (he won a Clio!).  She graduated from California College of the Arts with a degree in fine arts.  However, as soon as Sudi graduated, she embarked on a successful career in graphic design, which was much more to her liking.  It was the graphic quality of graphic design that so appealed to her and most all of her art has a noticeable graphic quality to it. Poster commissions by  her advertising clients prompted her to start an art publishing business for her own Japanese-woodblock style art prints.  From there she began working as an illustrator (specializing in packaging, publishing and promotional materials) then home accessory design (dinnerware, rugs, pillows, giftware).  Known for her woodcut style often incorporating decorative themes involving nature, animals, artisanal/organic foods. She likes designing it all!  She has 2 cats:  Beezie and Red Teddy Long Tail, but is also a doggie person.

Wilson, Joe

Leicester-born Joe Wilson studied at Leeds Metropolitan University, Graduating with a bachelor of arts degree in Graphic Arts and Design in 2007. After a lifetime of drawing and doodling Joe Wilson became serious about being an artist at an early age and has left himself 'no other option'. Joe Wilson took an interest in printmaking at university and studied this heavily in his final year, with a great deal of his work taking the form of screen prints and etchings. This forms the foundation of Joe Wilson's work today, although since finishing university and leaving the print facilities, other ways of creating similar effects have had to be employed. Joe Wilson's work consists of painstakingly detailed, hand-drawn illustrations, usually in fine-line pen or pencil, that are then scanned and edited on the mac. Joe Wilson takes his influence from an array of sources including old engravings, 70s Vinyl covers and surrealist art. Joe Wilson is particularly interested in ideas of evolution, space, and complex constructions.

Tharp, Pepper

Pepper Tharp | illustrator + Creative Director Hello, My work, aptly coined 'sophisticated fun' and 'nuevo french' is refined, elegant, informed with a touch of wit. Whether through the eyes of a sanguine shaggy dog or a willowy fashion-femme on a Mediterranean holiday I have a beguiling ability to capture life's minutia to tell stories that captivate. I am adept in understanding my client's goals and deliver work that ensures their brand is well-placed and memorable in the ever evolving and competitive global market. I have delivered many successful projects and campaigns for notable clients such as, American Express, Artful Living Magazine, Harper Collins, St. Martin’s Press, Ritz Carlton Weddings, Macy’s, Nestle, Sur la Table, Target, Vera Wang, William Sonoma,The Container Store and most recently 70 illustrations for Carson Kressley's new book (to be published this year). I have also discovered a fun niche in creating visuals for of social media and web design. With a true collaborative spirit, I love being part of a dream-team, but I'm equally comfortable acting as lead creative director or simply...working solo.I adhere closely to G.A.G. Handbook for pricing and ethical standards in my business acumen. With a drive to explore, I invite my clients to join me in every step of creative process so that they are fully informed and have input along the way. My work zone is a full capacity Mac Studio fueled by Nespresso and Adobe Creative Suites in a garden-view studio in my 1883 historic cottage in Linden Hills. Yet, in a moment's notice I can jump into your studio if in-house help is needed! I look forward to learning about your next project! Truly, Pepper Tharp www.peppertharp.com

Chivers, Sam

For several years I lead a double life. During the day I worked for a Design/Illustration studio producing work in a wide variety of styles for many different clients. Whilst in my spare time I was exploring more creative preoccupations though self-directed projects, often just enjoying a bit of creative freedom away from the pressures of the commercial world and being told what to do all the time.

Bringing together my love of drawing and geeking out on the computer, these quite often ended up as screen prints. Screen print is a process I’ve grown to love because of the restraints it imposes, I loved trying to create a sense of depth with just three or four layers. Often mistakes would be surprisingly pleasing.

After a while of incubation this work began attracting commercial clients (as I hoped it would) and eventually I made the leap to doing it full time.

My work naturally veers towards that blurry border point between science and nature. Recently I’ve become aware of how much I’m influenced by the countryside in which I live, and my tendency to fictionalise it through drawing.

My ambitions with my work are to keep making it better and continue to evolve as an artist. Presently my output mutated into a two pronged beast; I make these airbrushed sci-fi landscapes and then more hand drawn limited palette pieces – my aim is to carry on joining the dots in between these two styles somehow unifying them more.

Rathke, Kathryn

Looking at one of Kathryn Rathke’s line-based illustrations can be a bit like working out a puzzle – was it created using one fluid and continuous line, or many? According to the Seattle-based artist she owes her drawing skills to family connections. Her grandmother taught her to draw and supplied her with books by Arthur Rackham, Maurice Sendak, and William Steig, while her father was president of an advertising agency and used to bring home reams of paper for her to practice on.

She has lots of other creative interests too. She learned to make leather masks in Italy, enjoys German experimental theatre, and sometimes throws parties where her friends must act out vignettes found in a 1912 children’s book called Entertainments for All the Year.

Kathryn did an MFA in Set Design at the University of Wisconsin but was always drawing on the side, sometimes accepting commissions from newspapers and magazines. Eventually she flipped things around and made her illustration work a full-time profession and set design became her hobby.

Kathryn does everything digitally in Photoshop and Illustrator using a Cintiq screen by Wacom.

If she’s doing portraiture work, she draws her subject many times over from different angles. This way she learns about the most important features of their face and can draw it in a way that makes it instantly recognisable.

The line is core to Kathryn’s style and her work is very fluid. Expressive and calligraphic, there’s a unique sense of gesture in her illustrations. She also uses crosshatching to develop surfaces in her images, using layers of lines of varying thickness to build up a texture.

Travel is a very important ingredient in all of this and a strong element within much of my work. The last few years I have been traveling in South Eastern Asia, Northern Africa and Europe. I love the insight, excitement and energy of geography and people

Most recently, he won the 2010 Dunes and Dreams RWA cover contest award for "Best Historical Romance" for "His Conquest" by Diana Cosby.

As a young person, his talent was recognized by Jack Davis, one of Mad Magazines' creators and famed cartoonists, who then helped to mentor Chris early in his artistic life.

Mr. Davis provided perspective, insight and grounding at a very critical time, and helped Chris to understand the demands and commitments needed to pursue an artist's life.

Chris started his academic career by studying in New York City at various institutions of higher education; The School of Visual Arts, The Arts Students League and the National Academy of Design where he honed his skills as a traditional painter and draftsman.

Following in the footsteps of some of his most inspirational artists and teachers, Chris set out to traditionally paint the figure for the bookcover industry, first breaking in with the western and young adult genres, and expanding to romance, action and mystery genres.

In the early 90's, with the advent of digital media, Chris easily made the transition to the new techniques and tools without sacrificing his mastery of the "traditional techniques".

Chris was one of the first romance illustrators to embrace the new technology and continues to be one of it's foremost pioneers into the 21st century. His work is studied in many universities across the country.

Chris continues to embrace the incredible joy that these tools and creating great illustrative images bring him and others.

Born in Bronx, New York, Chris now makes his home in bucolic Litchfield county Connecticut, with his wife and two miniature poodles.
