25/6/12 – Greg Darroll
There is no specific information about the artist, although Greg Darroll has created some contemporary illustrations or designs with the image of the skull. The images were discovered through another blog, which displays the artist’s work. Darroll’s illustrations are very well designed and the images feature bold compositions or aesthetics, which invites one to view the skull from another perspective.
Darroll’s skulls appear similar to cartoon or comic strips, through the use of colour and shade, which provides each image with a two-dimensional quality. The stylised figures also feature striking characteristics, which efficiently composes an interesting representation of the skull. Darroll’s work was featured in the City Slickers exhibition in Cape Town, which also displays a range of designers or illustrators who reflect urban or street culture.
