A glimpse into the sketchbooks of illustrator Nicholas Stevenson

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!
