Illustration June 22, 2011
On June 20, Young Guns 3 winner Brian Rea was featured in an interview with Illustration Friday. As an illustrator who also designs, creates murals, and considers himself a story teller, Rea has simplified his style over the years: “Nowadays everything from the studio is done by hand, and always starts with writing or drawing words whether pencil pen or ink. Sometimes the words turn into images, sometimes the words stay as words. I strip away all excess marks and decoration and always make sure my voice is the most important thing in all the pieces.” Read the full interview here.
Rea is currently working on an exhibition in Los Angeles that explores the habit of list making.
