I recently discovered one of newcomer Jason Lear's illustrations on the AnotherLoves blog which prompted me to seek out more of his work. His most recent commission for Disorder Magazine saw him interpret looks from London Fashion Week, some of which I've posted here.
There's no doubt that Jason understands and utilises markmaking with his quick lines and choice of materials. A strong sense of energy and speed is present in his drawings that remind me of the styles of current illustrators Francesca Waddell and Lovissa Burfitt. His style of blending energetic pen lines and scribbled lines alongside more fully realized details fall inline perfectly with the classically favored illustrators that convey more with less, ala Rene Bouche, Downton etc. Lear is definitely one to watch.
