♥ Nick White

Well so let’s depart from this week’s program and check out the excellent, the dedicated-to-the-handmade Nick White. A London-based illustrator, Nick’s work combines images of the real world with super expressive, almost wild hand-crafted lines.

Many of the pieces are backdropped with old book pages or other unexpected surfaces like photographs of curtains. At least one illustration uses a scan of corrugated cardboard (!).

I think what I’m drawn to so deeply is the sense of a mind at work. Like a thought happened, Nick started drawing and the work emerged from that sort of sense of play. His use of color and composition suggest an intense reflection, orchestration.

Nick’s website is as fun to navigate as his work, with scanned notebooks, collaged headers and a ton of content. And there’s even more work in his shop. Check him out!
