Beautiful illustration and design work by Netherlands-based artist Stefan Glerum. Stefan’s obvious and honest appreciation of illustration from the past took me by complete surprise this morning. Not only is his pencil work beautiful and appropriately aged, he had an excellent eye for aesthetic, color and typography.
His hand-lettered elements and odd characters harken back to 1920s Europe, maybe with a touch of Bauhaus and Parisian Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec? At any rate, I’m thrilled to see someone take such an off-kilter illustration style and apply it to modern projects and events.
This work is so accurately executed, I can’t believe it’s current. Check out more work by Stefan Glerum on his official website.
