Glass, Randy

Originally from Kansas City, Randy became the youngest illustrator Hallmark Cards had ever hired — while still a junior in high school. He attended Ringling School of Art and Art Center College of Design, supplementing his tuition by drawing five-minute portraits of people at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World ... a surprisingly valuable education in discipline and patience. Randy began freelancing as an illustrator in the mid-’80s, quickly establishing a strong reputation for highly detailed representational drawing and painting. Although adept at working in color, he gravitated toward and has always preferred a simple black and white palette. He is a master of the graphic technique known as “stipple” — the process of marking a surface with numerous small dots to create an image. It’s a style favored by print media, where paper quality can adversely affect the reproduction of an image, and by its very nature, it’s ideal for Web usage. Perhaps best known commercially as a portrait artist, Randy has an exceptional aptitude for capturing his subject’s character and essence with carefully nuanced precision. This, combined with his stippling expertise, made him a perfect match for the Wall Street Journal’s iconic portraits known as “hedcuts”; he’s created several hundred of them since 1998. Over the years, Randy has received recognition by The Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, Communication Arts, The Art Director’s Club, and Illustration West. Randy currently lives in Southern California. Black & White Illustration. Pen and Ink (line & Stipple), Watercolor, Pencil. Portraiture.

Heiner, Joe & Kathy

In 1964 Kathryn (Kathy) Hughes sat next to me (Joe Heiner) in our sixth grade classroom at Ensign Elementary school in Salt Lake City, Utah. While quietly sitting at her desk, Kathy was struck by a ruler hurled at me (I ducked) by our teacher, Mr. Anderson. We became close friends. After the eighth grade, my family moved to Montreal, P.Q. Canada. It was a long time till I saw Kathy again. Kathy's family stayed in Salt Lake City where Kathy later attended East High School. Kathy married, moved to San Francisco and had one son, Michael. After returning to Salt Lake City, Kathy graduated Cum Laude from University of Utah with a BS degree in Social Sciences. She taught nursery school for two years, became a single parent and a secretary for Architects and Planners in Salt Lake City. I attended Beaconsfield High School near Montreal, studied art and photography at Brigham Young University, and Art Center College of Design, married and had two children. I assisted commercial photographers Ed Goldstien and Carl Furuta. I also assisted David Willardson, illustrator, shooting detailed 4X5 photo reference for his airbrush illustrations. Willardson taught me airbrush techniques and helped develop an airbrush / photographic illustration style. My first portfolio of ten photo / illustrations quickly generated assignments from movie studios, advertising agencies, magazines and recording companies. With the help of the same great reps who represented Willardson, assignments came from across the country. This afforded a move back to Utah. Work went well from Utah and I became a single parent. Fifteen years after sitting by Kathy in sixth grade, she married me. We now have five children (combined) and work together in our studio in Alpine, Utah. Our studio continues to create realistic photo / illustration for clients across the country. Kathy is studio manager and stylist. I am photographer / computer illustrator. Early works were a combination of airbrush and silk screen on photographic prints. Current work is digital, a merging of digital photography and computer illustration. We have received numerous awards including The One Show Gold Award and our work is represented in the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art. Clients include: Lucasfilm, Salisbury Communications, ABC records, Y&R, Foote Cone & Belding, Satchi & Satchi, Merck, McDonalds and Coca Cola. I hope you enjoy our work.

Steele, Robert Gantt

Robert Gantt Steele loves illustrating the relationship between natural and man made subjects. His paintings of architecture, for example, are made richer by his inclusion of painterly human and natural forms. The human subjects he paints, on the other hand, inhabit a convincingly detailed back ground. Robert enjoys the research needed to accurately capture the detail as well as the mood and atmosphere of his subjects. Recent projects include a commission by Smithsonian Magazine to illustrate the human character and the atmosphere of a particular small town in France. Robert studies music and is a performer in local San Francisco productions. This helped him create illustrations used for the promotion of Broadway shows such as “Showboat.” He completes several book covers and children’s books as well as many other com- missions each year. Constant studies and sketchbooks fill his free time. Robert was originally trained as an architect in North Carolina and at Berkeley. He completed further study in art in Austria as a Fulbright scholar and then in New York and San Francisco. He recently designed and constructed a new home for his family near San Francisco and is very active in the preservation of historic art and architecture. He loves his work.

Vernon, Katie

Katie Vernon is an illustrator who has spent most of her life in the midwest but whose heart belongs in the mountains.

Gu, Sunny

Based in sunny Los Angeles, Sunny Gu is an artist who’s curious about culture. She loves to look for beauty in everything around her and then recreate it in her art. It certainly shows through in her work, which is full of colour, glamour, fashion and ornamentation.

Sunny was born in China but emigrated to the US when she was 13. She’s loved drawing for as long as she can remember. Her nickname is ‘Bee’ because she’s obsessed with flowers and if you look inside her wardrobe you’ll be overwhelmed by the colourful floral prints and patterns inside. She has plenty of accessories to go with the garments - again, they form important elements in her illustration work.

Her overall aim is to preserve the beauty she sees around her.

Sunny studied illustration at the Otis College of Art and Design in LA, and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

Each illustration begins with a series of rough sketches, which Sunny uses to develop the composition. Once she’s decided on the composition, she works on the details and then starts painting. Her favourite medium is watercolour – she loves their vibrant and unpredictable nature. Occasionally, she uses graphite or acrylic paints for some of the textures. Sunny will use a computer to create surface designs and textile patterns.

When she’s painting, Sunny says she’s bathed in happiness and she puts that across in bright colour and rich detail. The focus on beauty and feeling is clear in her work and she wants to bring joy to whoever looks at it.

Van Den Hoek, Judith

Judith van den Hoek absolutely loves watching documentaries about Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino and Isabel Marant. They’re a great source of inspiration for this fashion illustrator who uses simple yet expressive line work to capture each garment or collection she draws.

Based in Gouda, in the Netherlands, Judith is also inspired by magazines, blogs and books. She does editorial commissions as well as working for fashion labels, and private collectors. Beyond her passion for drawing, she loves the outdoors and cycling, and says that if she weren’t an illustrator she’d probably like to work in a zoo.

Judith studied at the Grafisch Lyceum in Rotterdam, and then chose to specialise in fashion illustration. So she took a one-year course on this subject in Amsterdam before becoming a fulltime illustrator.

Photoshop is core to Judith’s approach and she uses it for every image she creates. Sometimes she’ll do some sketching by hand at the beginning of a project, but she feels that Photoshop really unleashes her ability to give the illustrations a fresh and clean look.

Minimalism and simplicity are what make Judith van den Hoek’s fashion illustrations stand out. One or two simple yet perfectly drawn lines help her to convey beauty, sensuality and creativity in a very direct way.

Watkinson, Mark

Born in Gloucestershire and growing up in Lincolnshire, Mark originally wanted to be a mechanic. However, one of his teachers suggested he pursue a career in art and he’s been a successful freelance illustrator since the early 80s. He plays percussion in a band called the B1200s, collects old cars and enjoys a game of tennis. His early influences include Gavin McLeod and Philip Castle.

Mark earned a diploma and then a higher diploma in Graphic Design from the Lincoln College of Art.

Keep it clean, clear and simple is Mark’s mantra. He works in Freehand, Illustrator and Photoshop, as well as using traditional media.

Mark’s style is very graphic with strong line work, and usually employs flat colours. His work is ideal for ‘how to’ images and infographics, with isometric viewpoints and, sometimes, a blueprint feel. He enjoys tackling technical challenges, but also produces more playful and conceptual work.
