Best Stuff Day 5: Julia Tiller, Illustrator

Back when I worked at Fast Forward (lo those many months ago), I was always amazed at the quality of the illustrators who were willing to freelance for us. The only problem was, there was never enough room to use as many illustrations as I wanted, so sometimes crazy-talented people wouldn’t get the work they deserved.

Julia Tiller is a perfect example. We were able to use her for maybe two illustrations (the one above was for this year’s Moustache Rock at Broken City), which I think you’ll agree is a crime. The controlled chaos of thick lines and vibrant colours can look childish in one drawing and impressionist in another; it’s deceptively versatile. And very impressive.

A couple more images from her blog:
