Retro and Colorful Illustrations by Steve Wilson

Steve Wilson is a recognized illustrator based in Brighton, the UK who has a impressive list of top clients including names like Sony BMG, Coca-Cola, Virgin and many more. What is really cool about his work is the retro style from the 80's, very colorful and playing with neon effects and colors.

For more information we highly recommend that you check out Steve's website at http://wilson2000.com/, but first check out some of Steve's work we have selected for you.

Steve takes the spirit of 80’s New York, combines rock imagery from the 70’s, and squeezes it through a brain full of circuses and tribal body art. As yu’d imagine, Steve’s techniques are as eclectic as his influ- ences, harnessing the spontaneity of pen, pencil, collage and play-doh, with the endless possibilities of contemporary tools like photoshop and Illustrator.- written by Breedlondon.com

I try to keep my portfolio as varied as possible as that tends to mean I get asked to do a variety of work and types of jobs which is how I like it. Experimenting is the creative part for me...I can't understand how some illustrators seem happy to use the exact same style and way of working for every project....I don't see where the creativity is in doing so.

I look at lots of things for inspiration. I use anything that is in some way unusual as an interesting start point to base work on. A few examples for me are: cicus imagery, fairgrounds, tribal body art, psychedelia, indian art, fantasy art and 70’s rock posters. I tend to look in charity shops and flea markets and try to find obscure and unwanted books on such subjects which I’ll use as reference and inspiration...I try to source inspiration from places that hopefullt not everyone is using.
