Picked up a few issues of Nobrow a while back and neve got round to posting about them, so here goes.
This is Nobrow 5, and it’s really damn beautiful, it’s basically a collection of really nice Illustrations on a theme, and the theme of this one was “A Few of My Favourite Things”, and it’s quite possibly one of my favourite things.
It was really hard to chose which Illustrations to chose for this, but I ended up going with ones by Nishant Choski, Sarah Young and Ben Newman.
Choski’s Illustrations really appeal to me, they’re really bold colour and really nice heavy line, which is everything I love really, they’re just so nice, and they work so well in this gridded format.
Sarah Youngs piece was one of the first I saw in my friends copy of the book, the colouring in it is amazing, and the really brilliant shapes of the people are just some of the many things I love about this one.
Ben Newman’s piece was the one thing I instantly knew I wanted to include here, not only do I love everything about it (there’s some sweet aliens and monsters and a vampire in there) but also he was right up there with my favourite of the speakers from Offset 2013 a few weeks back, both of his talks were great, I thoroughly enjoyed him talking about how great TMNT was.
Also, he can hula hoop like nobody’s business.
