It’s fair to say that being able to look into anyone’s sketchbook is an exciting thing, but it’s even more exciting when you get to peer into the pages of a sketchbook made by someone as talented as the London-based illustrator Nicholas Stevenson. Nicolas’ work is often fun and playful but it also has a slight unsettling tone to it which I think makes for a brilliant combination. Painted in gouache, his pictures are rich in beautiful colors and his subject matter often hints at menacing narratives and secretive doings.
You can view a huge collection of his work online at his portfolio, and make sure to take a look at some more images from his sketchbooks. I really wish I could fill sketchbooks with work as good as this!
