Welcome and bienvenido to this week’s Open Submissions winners!
Venezuelan illustrator Miguel Gonzalez (aka M-Ion) is a practicing architect, a career that leaves him with as little time as possible to paint and illustrate. His personal artwork is inspired by his hometown of Caracas, especially El Ávilia mountain. For his winning Infectious artwork Stepin the City, he turns his capital city into a stomping ground for monsters that look like they have been conjured up out of the clods and pollution.
Brighton-based artist Graham Carter is a freelance illustrator by day and a screen printer by night. Graham was one of the founding members of the critically acclaimed London based Peepshow illustration collective and now runs his own gallery called Boxbird. He was galvanized by the discontinuation of Polaroid film to create his Infectious artwork Poladroid.
