This Week’s Featured Artist is James Gilleard.
Gilleard is a British illustrator and animator who’s been very active the last six years. He’s designed title sequences for a number of films & television shows as well as develop concept art for a variety of venues, including videogames. Gilleard’s work is vibrant and geometric with a smoothness of color that makes everything exceptionally aesthetically pleasing.
His illustrations are probably my favorite – he covers a multitude of genres and characters throughout pop culture including; Adventure Time, The Incredibles, Shadow of the Colossus and The Creature from the Black Lagoon. If you have a hefty chunk of cash sitting in your wallet, begging to be spent, poster-sized prints of his art are available on his online store (shipping from UK).
I will be keeping an eye on his blog – maybe we’ll be seeing some game animation work (fingers crossed) from Gilleard in the near future!
