Please say “Hello” to Nick Cocozza, a young Illustrator and Street Artist from Scotland.

Interview with Kathryn McNaughton

An illustrator who draws her inspiration mainly from vintage porn magazines? Well! Anyway, we liked the pictures of Toronto based Kathryn McNaughton right away, which is why we boldly asked her some questions concerning her work.

Her pictures are a wild mixture of drawing, painting and collage, in most cases with a hidden message and always slightly gruff. But even without an extensive interpretation it is fun to click through the portfolio of this girl.

What she had to tell us? Read it yourself!

For our series of interviews she, who is fascinated by nature, animals and of course the romantic stories from Germany, answered some questions about herself.

Interview with Iker Spozio

Today, hot of the press, in our blog: A crunchy interview with illustrator Iker Spozio living in San Sebastián, Spain.

Iker is kind of oldschool in a charming way: His artworks, he says, are completely handmade and not modified at his computer.

Hats off, we say, because the results are pretty impressive: Several band posters and illustrations the artist has on board, which all slightly radiate an atmosphere of the 1960s or 70s.

So how did Iker become an artist in the first place? Read about it after the click!
