Hargreaves, Martin

History and humor marry together beautifully in the illustrations of Martin Hargreaves, and his versatile style has seen him creating everything from pastiche images mimicking the great masters to fantastical beasts and still life paintings. You’ll find his work in advertising, children’s books, magazines and newspapers, and even at Hampton Court Palace.

It’s no surprise to learn that Martin’s greatest inspiration comes from classical painters like William Hogarth, Hans Holbein, Rembrandt and Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. In fact, he says that if he could travel back in time he would visit the 18th century, and alongside his love of Renaissance artwork he also loves classical music.

Martin works from a shed in his garden, with large windows through which he can see apple trees and the rolling hills of East Sussex. If he ever gets creative block, he likes to dig in his vegetable garden, or look after his many pets, which include two dogs, three horses, two guinea pigs and seven chickens.

Martin has a BA Illustration from Brighton Polytechnic (now Brighton University).

His approach and the media he uses vary from project to project, but he always begins drawing with a simple pen on paper until he has an idea of what direction the image will take. Martin works in traditional media – oil paints, watercolor, pen and ink – and is also adept at making changes digitally as required. The 2B pencil is his all-time favorite art tool.

Martin’s inspiration comes from the old masters, and the styles he works in follow on from that. In his portfolio you’ll see fine paintings that look just like Rembrandts, and others that are more like 18th century engravings or 19th century book illustrations. In short, he will come up with a style that suits the brief.

His caricatures and the simplicity of his drawings, his lines and colour choices make for a fun and elegant style.

He primarily works in Spain, but likes very much travelling all over the world with his moleskine and some pens. All of his travels appear in his drawings. He loves New York, Venezia, Paris, Sidney, Barcelona, London… He has a studio, but sometimes he likes to work in a coffee shop with soft music, nice views and a very hot coffee on the table.

Day, Amber

Being able to create a world for somebody using just lines and colours – that’s what fascinates Amber Day, an LA-based illustrator who’s done stunning work for a range of fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands. “There’s no better feeling to me than being able to tell a story through an image,” she says.

Travel and taste are two of her biggest passions. “I’ve literally eaten my way through Europe, Africa, and Asia, and I love paddle boarding on The Great Lakes,” she explains.

Alongside the travelling and eating, she’s always drawing - fashion, food and beauty. Her visit to Morocco inspired her to draw Moroccan rugs for weeks, and the Red Panda at Nashville Zoo led to an obsession with the species. So far, her favourite city is Prague and she returns there two or three times a year. At home, her best friend and work partner is Kale, a rescue poodle with three legs.

Amber studied for a degree in Visual Communications from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles.

Amber’s bold line work has a natural, sketched feel to it, while the addition of watercolour gives her illustrations an organic look and her restrained use of colour sets the mood. A few years ago, she made the decision to draw products how they’d look when laid out flat and it’s proven extremely popular with clients in fashion and beauty.

When she’s creating culinary sketches, she gives them a personal perspective and includes the nuances of real life rather than aiming for perfection. “I want the viewer to feel like they are experiencing the food as if they are there. The napkin might be placed a little off, French fries might be brown from being cooked too long, and the burger could be half-eaten,” she says.

OFerrall, Zoe More

Zoe More O’Ferrall’s studio is situated in Notting Hill. It’s a prime position for an illustrator who loves markets. She’s right next to Golborne Road Antiques Market and minutes away from Portobello Road with its famous stalls selling old papers, postcards, vintage clothing, furniture, prints and more.

Further inspiration comes from a love of film and photography, like the colourful and imaginative work of Autumn de Wilde, Tim Walker, Wes Anderson and Juergen Teller. BBC Radio 4 is played constantly in her studio as she creates imagery for fashion and food brands, retailers, advertising agencies, publishers and more.

Zoe’s training began at Wimbledon School of Art, and she went on to do a BA at the London College of Communication as well as a postgraduate course at Central Saint Martins.

Zoe usually works in pen and ink – she has a broad collection of pens to choose from - and loves to draw by hand. She only uses a computer to plan compositions and to touch up the handmade images. Now and again she’ll experiment with collage and screen printing too.

Richardson, Jack

Jack Richardson is an English illustrator in New York, with a clean and fresh comic book style that often features a touch of the unusual.

Originally from the South East of England, Jack is now based in Brooklyn where he does what he loves most – drawing.

Some of Jack’s main influences include the classic comic artists Alex Toth, Jean Giraud (Mœbius) and Hergé, as well as the painter Daniel Heidkamp and the photographer Robert Adams.

Jack took a foundation course at Hastings College in the UK, but beyond that his skills are self-taught. “My father is a professional illustrator, so as well as learning from him I got to see what is required beyond good ideas and draughtsmanship,” says Jack.

With his strong, expressive lines and flat colours, Jack’s style is rooted in the world of hero comics. He strives to bring a narrative to each individual image, and there is often an added layer of meaning, a hint of humour or something slightly unusual in his work.

His intricate hand-made work focuses on the human figure, and particularly the face. His work is tender, playful and at times surreal.
