Earlier this week, while looking at the excellent new Nobrow site, I came across the work of Brighton-based Nishant Choksi. He illustrates in a charming retro style, inspired by people like Charles Adams and Tomi Ungerer.
Retro his style may be, but he combines this with surprise, wit and a great eye for design. He also doesn’t create his images with a rubber stamp aproach, either – he mixes up his illustration style to keep things fresh. I was also pleasantly surprised to discover that he was one of the terrific illustrators to contribute to one of my favourite billboard campaigns for Vodaphone.
As usual, I could have included more examples of his work to illustrate this post, but settled on these four. From top:- Think – contribution to The Book of Conversations; Vampire for Dental Health Partners/Preston Kelly; illustrations for Vodafone’s ‘Winter Roaming’ campaign for BBH; and below Dynamite – from his Nobrow-published book Death’s Cocktail Party.
