I don’t really remember how I got in touch with Montreal based illustrator and animation designer Alex Fellows, but i’m quite impressed by the stuff he’s shown me. On his website, he gives an overview of his many talents, and of the many styles he’s capable of using. He works in ink, but also in watercolor, and has also created some very nice 2D animation shorts (I particularly liked his Snow Pig from 2005).
I chose the above illustration as an example of his work because it reminded me of the lavish, full-page cartoons that people like Jean-Jacques Sempé used to publish in glossy magazines.
Also, do check out Alex’s blog, which regularly showcases new work.
