Fri-llustrator-day #25

'I Feel Space' illustration by Josh Cochran

Today we find ourselves in Brooklyn, thanks to It’s Nice That who directed me, using only their map of impeccable taste, to the studio of Josh Cochran. As I said on the very first Fri-llustrator-Day, I don’t like repeating another sites discoveries, but I was so inspired by Mr Cochran’s gear, that I had to share. Plus that fact he has made a few illustrations featuring Astronauts and I’m a sucker for anything in outer space.

His colour pallette is superb and he really is a fantastic draughtsman. Looking at some of his drawings made me exclaim “Blimey!” out loud, they were so intricate. I would really love to see him tackle a graphic novel. One, because I would, and two, because I always feel a bit odd writing a Fri-llustrator post without mentioning comics… mind you, he has produced work for Fantagraphics, so maybe he has some comic-related illustration knocking about somewhere.

Have a look at the Josh Cochran website and discover why people like Esquire, McSweeney’s, the New Yorker, TIME and Wired have all used him. Oh, and there’s also a few really nice motion pieces too to look at, too.

Wonderful stuff, Mr. Cochran!
