The Big 5:

Karan’s Top Inspirations

They were hugely inspirational to me when I first began digital illustration, from their letters and forms to colour schemes and characters.
I’ve always admired the elegance and restraint of Marimekko. Their ability to consistently create timeless work is something I’m always in awe of. 
Bon Iver 
I adore Justin Vernon’s music, especially ’22, A Million’. I loved his approach of completely abandoning a working formula in search of something new, experimental and challenging. The fact he also made it sound good is something special. 

Andrew Archer 
Andrew is a good friend and illustrator based in Melbourne. The way he creates mood in a scene through unconventional colours and delicate composition is divine.
Yusuke Kamekura
Kamekura’s effortless approach to simplicity in his work where every element is considered and deliberate is brilliant.
