Mark Conlan is an Irish multi-disciplined illustrator currently living in Melbourne, Australia. His style shows a strong use of characters, vibrant color palettes, and whimsical situations. In an interview on Medium.com he reveal a few things about himself:
“I am a big believer in keeping notebooks on the go all the time. I believe this is a huge part of development and discovery. I also love the idea of having full notebooks to go back on and pick up ideas for future projects.”
“In these notebooks, I try experiment as much as I can. I think being experimental keeps me fresh and it can give me some great techniques to bring into my digital work.”
“I guess defined is a hard word to use when it comes to my style. I would like to think that I am beginning to find a style that I can call my own. I have only really been an illustrator for over a year now, so it could always take several more years to really define it.”
“Yeah I really do feature several elements throughout my work quite regularly. I guess the main reason is because these are subjects that really interest me and I find it easiest to express myself through them.”
