Loved flicking through the AOI's illustration award winning categories today. I took a particular fancy to Thoka Maer's work. 'It's no Biggie', her little, cheeky pencil drawn and digitally animated GIFs are quite charming.
The interview on the AOI website, gives a great insight into the way she works. I also love the way she describes what intrigues her about her practice...
"My illustrations have been on screens in places I will never see, they've glanced into faces I'll never meet, they were talked about in languages I cannot speak. This modern day ability to communicate over such distances it will probably never stop fascinating me."
What a nice way to think of it? I reckon I could have a good conversation with this lady!
