Congratulations to this week’s new Open Submission winners!
Thai illustrator Pomme Chan doesn’t like to describe her work. She wants you to read into her art whatever it is you want to see. Pomme sprawls on the floor of her London studio and creates beautiful, whimsical illustrations on tracing paper with her felt tip pens and watercolors. She draws her inspiration from her dreams, her bus journeys around London town and from the curve of the female form. Her dreamy, ethereal style has been commissioned by everybody from Marc Jacobs to Topshop to Mercedes Benz. She is currently busy sketching on her floor for her first solo exhibition at Coningsby Gallery in February.
Canadian artist Kristian Bauthus was raised in Northern Ontario, amongst the trees, bears and igloos. His upbringing and love of nature can be seen in his art for Infectious – he sketched the sabertooth skull while on a recent expedition to Royal Ontario Museum. After wielding his pencil, he puts everything together and colors his art in photoshop: “I would compare how I work to screen-printing: drawing individual plates for each color, then laying those on top of each other to build my final image”. Kristian’s art can be in issue 11 of Graphic Magazine, on various Threadless t-shirts, or you can stop in for tea at his website, www.kbauthus.com.
We’ve just opened up Wall and Car Art submissions. We’re launching new artists every week – so if you’d love to see your art become the next Infectious product, come and join in the fun! The next deadline is Friday 28th November.
