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 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.
Kamekura’s effortless approach to simplicity in his work where every element is considered and deliberate is brilliant.
