artist fridays: rich gemmellPosted: December 4, 2009
Well, it’s Friday already and I think you all know what that means! Today I’m going to write about a UK-based illustrator named Rich Gemmell.
On his website, Gemmell writes that he’s starting a new body of work based on his recent trip to Scotland. He writes that he wants to “improve his image-making and inject something a bit different in his future pieces”, which I can appreciate. I absolutely love how this body of work is starting and much prefer it to his older work – this is so much more complex and emotional.
I would really like to know his technique- the images look to be a combination of collage, watercolor or ink and monoprints. The lines are so crisp and the shapes have such a nice weigh to them, which is a nice contrast to the line work gingerly drawn on top.
I’m excited to see how this series progresses.
