I have decided to start a series of things that inspire me. I am starting with artists and plan to branch out into more general categories such as: colors, typography, etc.
Si Scott is a graphic designer from the UK who specializes in rich, hand drawn illustrations that often involve type. He uses fineliners to create the illustration and usually works about 25% bigger than the final size so the illustration looks more crisp when scanned.
I am mesmerized by the skill hat he displays with a pen. I usually do my illustrations in ball point pen, so his style immediately spoke to me. Seeing mainstream hand drawn type makes me smile all over.
If you would like to see more of his work check out his portfolio here.
I also dug up this short video of him at work. Take a look!
