Lynnie Zulu

LynnieZuluAdmiring the vibrant artwork of UK-based illustrator, Lynne Zulu. Her illustrations indicate a strong African influence:  colorful, energetic, exotic with a bold tribal appeal.
She says this of her work in an interview with creative website, It’s Nice That:

“My work used to be quite stripped back, pen to paper; no crazy embellishments or juxtaposing of materials. Now I feel I’ve grown into my work and by experimenting with photoshop I’ve found it to be hugely influential as to how I now approach a piece, taking layers and effects into greater consideration. Sketchbooks have always been a huge part of my work because my work is so spontaneous as it’s always a surprise to see how my illustrations evolve.”
