Illustrators blow my mind. The combination of perfect skill with ability to tweak our feelings while still satisfying the demands of a client can’t be easy.
Rob Bailey had me oohing and aahing as I clicked through his website, and I was struck by how much emotion he can express through flat, paper-cut-looking images.
I love this series he did on famous friendships, and notice how simple and brilliant the shift in above vs. below water is in this next image.
If you’re so inclined, you can even browse through his illustrations to see how he made sutures look good.
