BEN LEGGETT COURSEWORK


NSS Poster Project. Visual Research.

1. I love this kind of flat colour, simplistic illustration. The focus is taken away from the detail and aimed more at the colour and layout. I especially like how the artist has used sharp contours on the bodies, its like the piece has been deconstructed to its basic shapes. The use of colour is also perfectly balanced in the picture, it isn’t clumsy or too complex. By Gordon Menes (2006)

2. I think some of the best illustrations are the ones that show awareness of other subjects like graphic design, typography, photography etc. This image is one such illustration, its still very much a hand drawn piece but it also works as a composition thanks to inclusion of good composition and understanding of letterforms. By Michelle Jean (2011)

3. The use of flat colour combined with extreme yet unrealistic detail really makes this piece stand out, it is essentially a pile of madness and colour but the tight use of construction and layout kind of holds it together. There isn’t any restriction on creativity here, it seems to be lacking any real rules other than the solid use of shapes. By ???? (I stumbled upon this, but I am not sure who actually originally created it)

4. This style of drawing, were the figures aren’t outlined in dark colour/black really stands out to me, it reminds me of people like Gendy Tartakovskys art (Creator and Artist of Samurai Jack) among other Cartoon Network artists. This piece has a beautiful balance of colours, limited to 3 colours + black and white its simplistic style and extremely angled figures and features make it very unique. By Ed Ferry (2003)
