Amelia’s Magazine | Drawlloween Artist: Dave Quiggle


I love this work by California based illustrator Dave Quiggle, discovered via the Drawlloween hashtag which has been running all month (a great way to discover some talented artists who love this time of year as much as I do!)




Candlelight Creep

His website describes him thus:
Dave Quiggle offers both creative whimsy and intellectual depth in equal measure, executing concepts culled from a small-town upbringing filled with monster magazines, comic books and cartoons. His work strikes a chord of electric connectivity for likeminded folks seeking an escape from realism through the language of vintage animation, Americana and otherworldly illustration. Quiggle is best known in the music realm and underground subculture. His designs and illustrations have been utilized on posters, packaging and merchandise for Joey Ramone, Michael Jackson, Sick Of It All and Johnny Cupcakes. The SoCal resident and Erie, PA native’s work has also been featured in gallery shows centered around Pee Wee Herman (who personally loved Quiggle’s contribution enough to Tweet about it), TV’s Arrested Development and Fringe.

Amelia’s Magazine | Drawlloween Artist Discovery: James Mason Art

Whenever I check out the Drawlloween hashtag I keep coming back to James Mason – a designer and illustrator based in Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA. I love the way he has stuck to such a tight style and colour palette for his Halloween themed pictures, which look amazing viewed on instagram altogether.

Amelia’s Magazine | Drawlloween Artist Discovery: Lydia Jean Art

And here’s my final Drawlloween 2016 discovery: Illustrator and dog enthusiast Lydia Jean created this cute series. I love the way she has settled on such a sparse colour palette, which works really well with her simple lines. She sells “Dope Illustrations Handmade with Love” on Etsy here, and I believe these images will be available as prints shortly.

Amelia’s Magazine | Drawlloween Artist Discovery: Sonia Lazo

Phantom Friday

Sonia Lazo hails from El Salvador and is the latest artist I have discovered via the Drawlloween hashtag on instagram. From an online interview with Adobe I have learned that she dreamed of becoming a marine biologist before deciding to pursue illustration, incorporating her love of nature and its relationship with the spirit world. She loves to showcase her process on instagram and Facebook and often incorporates animation into her colourful art.

Superstition Sunday

Witchcraft Wednesday

Slimy Swamps, Foggy Bogs

Baturday Dance Off

Sonia Lazo creates brilliant characters such as her mournful cat, sad because no one will take him in because he is bad luck on Superstition Sunday, or her bats competing in a dance off. Enjoy!

You can buy her art on Etsy here and follow her on Facebook at Sonia Lazo, where she posts wonderful videos of how she creates her work. Follow her on twitter here and instagram here. Read a fantastic interview here.
