Hannah McKellar's Assignment - Jeremy Evans

Jeremy Evans is an artist/illustrator from the United States. Jeremy feels comfortable and at home by using the RedBubble site. He says he likes,’ Being able to share my thoughts in a printed manner gives me a sense of purpose’.

Jeremy Evans does witty and strange characters in his illustrations. Not only does he do items for clothing, he also does artworks which are also publicized and sold over RedBubble. Jeremy usually creates characters, such as animals and people, who have abnormally long and pointed arms and/or legs.

Jeremys’ works are appealing because they are different from the ordinary and make the audience think about why he uses long pointed arms and other features in his works. His works are also very appealing because not only does he do these illustrations, he does other works which include ordinary witty quotes on a t-shirt, photography and smart illustrations with references to other things. His most recent works, are the illustrations out of the ‘Romantus’ Collection. In these images they have a white background, and use mostly pale colours to make the image stand out.

This illustration on the link above is the first of many characters from the Romantus collection. This work was influenced and inspired by the artists wife. This artwork uses the colours of brown, orange, black and a light pale green. Using these colours makes the image stand out and makes it eye-catching, using colours which subtely contrast. There is also contrast in the shapes used in the work, with a good use of curves throughout the body of the work but ending in pointed/sharp ends.
