We love the illustrations of Polish illustrator Gosia Herba but we’re focusing today on her sketches for her simplicity in approach and her unusual angular proportions. On an interview with Eye on Design (AIGA) she says this about her work:
“Illustration is my whole life,” she states. “I know that sounds banal, but it’s true. I draw everyday. I wake up at 8:30 a.m. and at 9:00 a.m. I start my work. My day usually ends at 8:00 p.m., though sometimes I work until midnight.”
“Experiments with media are an important stage of my work process. Each technique influences the style and character of the image. My favorite medium is gouache paint. I like its velvet-like color,” Herba explains. “I also use ink, paper cut-outs, and Ecoline. When working on illustration for magazines, I often use a graphic tablet.”
