Here is a grid of random snippets I pulled from illustrations by John S. Dykes. Dykes is a well known illustrator whose work you are as likely to see on pages of The Wall Street Journal as you are to see on the wall over the coffee machine at a Sheetz convenience store.
What do you see?
I see an illustrator who clearly isn’t satisfied with applying the same solution to every problem—a way of working we should all aspire to.
Watch for how diverse these various examples are—different styles, line treatments, color palettes, proportions, and so on. Don’t you love it?
Here’s a piece from a campaign he illustrated for the aforementioned Sheetz.
