After all, at Blurb we’re not just developers, writers, art directors, and QA engineers, we’re also photographers and – in today’s case – illustrators too. So, today we’re departing a bit from our normal show of Leicas, Agfas, Olympuses, and Polaroids to show the various tools of the trade of an illustrator.

“Even though most illustration is now produced digitally, I feel it will never be as satisfying as seeing one’s finished work physically in print. Whether created entirely in a digital environment, or using a mix of digital and traditional media such as oils, for instance, seeing your work in print adds a level of completion to the illustration that’s difficult to achieve digitally. One of the most exciting parts of a project for me is printing my first test print to see how the project is progressing. I then use that print, along with many consecutive test prints, to get to the finished illustration.”

  2. These are works of art that digital image can never compare to. I believe true talent and the right tools will always go well together to create beautiful images illustrated above. Great work!
