Whimsical, Clever, Retro Illustrations From Lucy Irving

Posted on

Lucy Irving is a Brighton-UK, based illustrator who’s work often harkens back to the poster designs and illustrations of the 1950s and early 1960s. As she tells us, “My work is heavily influenced by 1950’s/60’s cartoons, graphic-design and poster design, and is often ambiguous and paradoxical, with a splash of the ironic and the absurd. I use bold colors, characters and messages to create images that comment on the world we live in.” We really enjoyed Lucy’s work. She successfully combines witty humor, with graphic treatments that stand out in a crowd, yet are deeply layered with visual optical illusions. If you’re in Brighton and looking to hire an illustrator, be sure to look Lucy up! You can contact her through her Twitter and Facebook pages.
