Inspiration Overload: Andrea Joseph
I sketch everyday and draw letters all the time, but I don't really draw enough anymore. At least that is my gut reaction when I see Andrea Joseph's work. The invite above for Andrea's sketch group in the UK has all the touches of fine art; a charcoal gradient hat, marker lines and fantastic organic handwriting, yet it still feels like an effective piece of design. Oh, how I miss drawing like this (and making it work commercially).
My favorite pieces of Andrea's are obviously the ones that combine her whimsical illustration skills with beautiful and creative text, like the "chips" above. But, all her work is stunning.
