I came across the illustration work of Iain Macarthur a couple of weeks ago via the french magazine Be Street, and felt compelled to hunt down and post some of his work. I rarely buy magazines based on the cover design, but this was certainly an exception when I saw Iain’s cover for the current Be Street, which is the topmost image above. Beautiful.
I grabbed a handful of Iain’s work to feature here, but don’t be fooled as he has a very diverse selection of drawings and designs on all of his various portfolio accounts. I really enjoy his intricate drawing ability, creating textured and detailed work full of interest and wonder. You can stare at any one of these drawings and continue to see new little things in there.
I recommend checking out more from this UK artist via his blog, his Behance, and his Carbonmade. And while you’re at it, swing by Be Street to check out this awesome magazine.
