Sabeena Karnik

Sabeena Karnik is an artist and graphic designer living in Mumbai, India.  She is internationally known for her quilled illustrations and typography.  She has mastered the art of quilling, rolling paper into coils, pinching them into shapes and gluing them to create decorative designs.  On Verve Magazine she say this about her art:  

“I am not aware of anyone else doing it as a full-time profession in India. When you think of creating with paper, it’s always considered to be for gifts. Quilling is something that you learn in a hobby class; no one really thought of taking it to the next level. I wanted to break that barrier.”

More of her work can be seen on Behance, Facebook and Instagram.  She has a small shop here on Big Cartel.

Andrea Ucini

Andrea Ucini is a self-taught freelance illustrator born in Italy but living and working in Denmark. He has a classical music degree from the Conservatory of Florence but has also a passion for illustrative drawing which he has cultivated over the years.  His work is minimalistic and usually with a plot. He simplifies a complex story in a single illustration often accompanied with a twist of humor. In an article on Collater.al he says this about himself:

“I am very interested in how the world works,” he says, “and I am very critical and curious in all respects. My works take shape from a message that I try to make visible and consistent with the reality that surrounds us, without falling too much in the Surrealism “.

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

Jessica Hische

Jessica Hische is an American letterer, illustrator, and type designer based in San Francisco. After graduating in 2006 from the Tyler School of Art with a degree in Graphic and Interactive Design she worked for two companies in Philadelphia. She launched her freelance career in 2009 citing her appreciation for the balance between work and personal life. In an article on the Ways We Work she says this about why she does what she does:

“There’s two things. One is that I just love the process. It’s super meditative for me. I like having constraints. I love the world of design and commercial art. I’m not one of those people that’s going to swear off clients forever, because I like the purpose that a client-driven work style brings. There’s enjoyment in having someone at the other side of it be happy.”
