IAF2017 Poster by Dillion Tan

We first noticed Dillion’s work through another illustrator Yikchun because of a cool collab they did! Then we found out about this interesting label he started called CHEPOOKA  https://www.instagram.com/thischepooka/

 

About Dillion:
Born and raised in Singapore, Dillon grew up an avid collector and reader of comics, cartoons, and science fiction movies. As an illustrator, his work reflects  surrealists and sci-fi themes. 
 
Wanting to share his passion of illustration, Dillon founded This Chepooka, an art merchandise store in 2016. “Cheepoka” is a pseudo slang word for “nonsense” from the book, A Clockwork Orange. This Chepooka strives to be an outlet for artists to realize their visions, unhindered by commercial pressures and restrictions.

IAF2017 Poster by Erikatoon

We love Erika’s super intensive art! You can feel her passion for her work and be amazed by the crazy detailing she puts into every single one of them! Be sure to see her in person- stash of Erikatoon goodies available for collectors at the IAF Artists Market!

About Erikatoon:
Inspired by Asian sub-cultures, films, cartoons, Erika seeks to bring her audience into a surreal dream world where dreams and reality collide. Most of the time she allows the process of her works to evolve intuitively, not knowing what the end result will be.

IAF Guest Speakers- Louis Rigaud and Anouck Boisrobert ( France )

Look out for the talk and pop-up book workshop by our friends Louis and Anouck from France. Thanks to our friends at ELCAF for helping us to invite them to be part of our Illustration Arts Fest 2017 this year.

Anouck website: http://anouckboisrobert.fr
Louis website: http://louisrigaud.fr

Louis Rigaud and Anouck Boisrobert were born in 1985 and met at the École des Arts Décoratifs of Strasbourg. During a workshop on pop-up techniques, they create the mock-up of their first book “Popville” which will be published one year later by helium (France). They keep working together and imagine new books, in pop-up, in cut-out paper or digital… The playful aspect and the manipulation are always in the center of their creations. Anouck is now the main illustrator, whereas Louis is the developer, the animator or the paper engineer of the tandem. The idea, of course, arises from both heads.

They often conduct workshops around their work.

When they do not work together, Anouck is an illustrator for various projects and Louis invents video games, websites, or animated films.
