Beady eyed bird looking for collectables and design stuff
Following on from my recent post about mental health cartoons I thought I’d expand to take in some of my other current favourite illustrators. These are some of my favourites because they represent all shapes and sizes of women, enjoy.
I’ve completely fallen in love with Cécile’s work since stumbling across it via someone, via someone else on Instagram. She’s french, living in Germany and her illustrations are loud, simple, bold, and just generally pretty fun.
I’ve been following Heather for quite a long time now, when I first saw her work I really liked these impish, Tankgirl-esque illustrations.
I really don’t know too much about her except that she’s based in the US and creates these really striking drawings featuring a number of cool girl heroines. Saying that they’re like Tankgirl isn’t entirely fair as I do think she has a really distinctive style.
I like both of the above because, not only are they cool girls, but they’re cool girls with pretty sizeable girl hips, and they don’t care about that, not at all.
I also know that she has an etsy shop and her work is very very reasonably priced considering her talent – I’ve got her on my list (another one, yes) to buy some of her work soon. Oh, and she also draws Pokémon, so that’s cool too.
You can find out more about Heather on her Tumblr.
Stickymonger (aka Joohee Park)
Now I’m not entirely sure where to start with Stickymonger, as with a number of people I follow I managed to stumble across them on Instagram and have then worked backwards from there. I think I discovered Stickymonger as she is currently exhibiting at the World Trade Gallery and I slightly fell in love with her girl-characters.
A little bit manga, a little bit Sonic Youth album cover, all kinds of awesome.
These pictures are simultaneously beautiful and unsettling. I love her singular view.
I’ve only included female illustrators to this point so probably best to include a guy right? (I’m all for equal representation 😉 )
Simone is an Italian artist and illustrator who is pretty adept at creating some really striking ladies.
Click through to the Society6 shop and you can buy some of these images as prints.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these talented artists’ work as much as I have!
