Katie Lukes

Loving this alphabet series of city maps created by Chicago-based illustrator and designer, Katie Lukes. The maps were created for the ‘36daysoftype’ challenge. The artist has an affinity for celebrating everyday objects and scenarios within her work. On Creative Income blog she says this about her work process:

“They almost always start out as a simple sketch. Even before that though, I keep a small moleskin with me at all times and I always jot down random illustration/card ideas in there before I sketch. My illustrations aren’t too complex, so the sketching usually involves working out unique yet simplistic ways to represent my idea. After the sketches are worked out, I sometimes decide to use paint or ink to recreate the sketch, and then I scan everything in to my computer. Depending on the illustration, the amount of work I do digitally from the scan varies.”

More of her work can be viewed on her website, Behance and Instagram.

Milo (Milena) Hachim

Milo (Milena) Hachim brings her illustration skills to life by transforming her drawings into objects.  She is inspired by everyday life and the love for objects which she illustrates and transforms into clay.  Illustration has always served as a form of expression and as she says on and interview (in Spanish) with Domestika

“The illustration has made me lose a little shyness because I am very quiet. It makes it easier for me to speak by drawing.”
