Illustration Wednesday #3 - Anthony Peters / Imeus

This weeks Illustration Wednesday comes in the form of Anthony Peters aka Imeus.

Imeus is a designer and illustrator based in Brighton. His work tends to lean to using a selective colour palette allowing for a very clean but playful approach which is instantly eye catching and grabs your attention to look at more. This style also allows his work to be versatile, and be able to be used as prints, online, in magazines and on clothing.

I've been a big fan of Imeus's work for a long time, he was one of the first illustrators I followed on Flickr when I was really active on there and was instantly hooked on his work.

Worrying Solves Nothing - A2

As well as in A4, I have now printed and added the 'Worrying Solves Nothing prints on my Etsy at A2, which can be found HERE

Illustration Wednesday #2 - Ben Newman

This weeks Illustration Wednesday comes in the form of Ben Newman.

Ben Newman is an illustrator hailing from Bristol, who now works in London. His portfolio is a beautiful mixture of personal and client work. His work is based around shapes and print process, where his influence comes from his background in printmaking, this can be seen in the choice of colours, and colour layering so that when he uses up to four colours, they blend over to create more.

I recently had the pleasure of going to a talk by Ben in Aberdeen at Offset57, it was great to see a look into his process, and to see a wide scope of work he had been involved in.

Illustration Wednesday #1 - Maggie Li

From now on every Wednesday I will feature an illustrator who's work I am really interested in at the moment, or have been for a while. To kick things off, I'm starting with Maggie Li.

Maggie Li is a freelance illustrator based in London. I first discovered her work when the collective she is a part of, Zombie Collective, was setting up & organising their event Fathoms Deep at Hayward Gallery last May.

I think what I like most about her work is the fact that it very hand drawn, but also very digital at the same time, something which I wish I could do myself. If you haven't seen her work before, I suggest clicking on her portfolio and having a look for yourself!

The Retro Spectrum

I was asked to rebrand a friend’s logo for their business. The company specialises in retro computers, tabletop and handheld games as well as action figures, comics, annuals, etc.

A really fun brief, and definitely right up my street. Very happy with the outcome!

Screenprinting Workshop @ Offset57

Today Adrian Reid and myself (aka The Happy Accident Collective) were doing a wee screenprinting workshop at Offset57. The idea behind the workshop was to let anyone come along and have a small taster / introduction into screenprinting, and allowing them to also pull their own print.

It was a great success, with a steady flow of people all day, who all seemed to enjoy our workshop, and go away after learning something new.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely love to do it more regularly.

(A big thank you to Rachel McLeod - aka Kumokitsune for the photos)

New Stockist - Ginger Pickle

I'm very excited to say that some of my prints will be stocked by the lovely Ginger Pickle. I've always really liked Jade's online shop, it has the right amount of variety and different items without being too all over the place. I had the pleasure of finally meeting Jade in person when we both did Tea Cosy this year at the Cowdry Hall, and it was great to see she was as lovely in person as she comes across online. If you haven't seen her shop yet, I suggest doing so straight after reading this.

Be sure to watch out for my prints making an appearance on her site soon.

Obligatory Welcome Post

With this being my first post on my Blogspot, I feel it's almost certainly obligatory to post a Welcome / Hello type post. So here goes.

So firstly, who am I?

Well, my name is Levi Bunyan, and I am a Designer, Illustrator & Printmaker based in Aberdeen.

Why Blogspot?

I wanted to create a Blogspot simply to have somewhere to post more in depth about what I'm up to, things I'm interested in, and other such things which I felt I couldn't do as much on Twitter / Facebook / Tumblr etc.

Anyway, that's enough for now, stay tuned for more interesting posts soon!
