I design stuff...

Erica Burns

I relly enjoy this piece, its quirky and just pops! I love the bold line work and the colours throughout it. Her style is alot like my own at times. Click on her name to view more.

I'm a graphic designer, at the moment I do more corporate work in advertising, however my major was traditional illustration! I need to get back into this, I miss my drawing and being able to just let go and draw for hours. At the moment a 9-5 design job is sucking away my creativity. I can't come home and do my personal's sad and I'm trying to figure out a way to get around it. I really want to come up with some great work to show you guys, but at the moment I'm falling short...So for the time being I am filling my head with beautiful things illustrators and designers are doing at the moment, hoping for a little glimpse of inspiration to kick start me to get into my own work again.

Her work is so chaotic and crazy, unexpected, but works so well. I love her use of linework and the splatter effect that is often used.

Some of my faves:
Tobias Jones
Excellent use of typography within the pieces he creates, bold colour and images.

Courtney Brims

Excellent illustrator, works with pencils and a lot of tone work, her images are so soft and beautiful. Really inspiring!

Kevin Lyons
His work could be seen as a little bit controversial, but his stuff is witty and though the images are quite simplified, his work comes together so well. I really enjoy looking at his stuff, and having a bit of a chuckle to myself.

For a dose of music and art and all in between head here to lostateminor.

And for all your illustration eye candy go here

Well I feel better already, I hope my finds have inspired you too, till another day.
Tilli with a 'i'
