Drew Shannon is a Canadian illustrator who has been creating work for numerous books, magazines and websites over the last few years. Recently he created a series of editorial illustrations for Readers Digest and I think that they really captures what he does best.
For me, there’s something wonderful in the pencil textures and limited use of color that he uses. There’s a sketchy quality to his work and yet his images always feel finished. It’s a delicate balance but it totally works and it has a great energy to it! You can check out more images from Drew’s series below or visit his website to see more of what he does.
