Guest Post: Illustrations by Ruben Ireland

Published Sep 6, 2011

This week we have talented Chilean illustrator and graphic designer Alvaro Tapia Hidalgo as our special guest.

Alvaro is an amazing artist with a very unique and instantly recognizable style. He uses vivid colours and grungy textures to create beautiful illustrations. To check out his work, visit his website or take a look at his feature right here on The Inspiration Grid.

In his guest post, Alvaro features London-based illustrator Ruben Ireland:

“Ruben Ireland’s work has really impacted me. I love his style, I think he is very elegant in how he handles texture and shades, as well as his handling of shape and space and the atmosphere his characters create. His style is very clean and sophisticated, the characters have a great visual and emotional impact and his images are dream-like and somewhat disturbing. It calls my attention the interaction between the feminin representation and elements from the animal world. I like the simplicity of his shapes, the economy of resources and the great attention to detail.”
