Today’s Fri-llustrator comes all the way from Edmonton, Canada. Step forward Illustrator, Publisher, Guitarist and all round clever so and so, Mr Raymond Biesinger. Mr B is self taught and started his career when he was managing editor of the University of Atlanta’s student newspaper The Gateway. He dreaded finding editorial cartoonists, so he decided to make the illustrations himself, got the bug and here he is today with a great body of work and a very impressive client list (New York Times, Wired, Fast Company, Monocle to name but a few).
I love editorial information graphics, especially at the more creative end, like the work of Peter Grundy for example. Raymond Biesinger’s work is kind of like a cubist version of that, but with twists and turns, producing images that look like they’re conveying information, but instead provide opinion.
Again, I was really spoilt for choice as to what pieces of his work to include here. If you’d like to see more of RB’s terrific work, visit the Raymond Biesinger’s website or look at the Raymond Biesinger page on Debut Art.
