Owen Gildersleeve is an illustrator and designer from London. His work involves a number of techniques with much of his efforts focused on creating beautiful hand-crafted illustration and typography.
I have such respect for this kind of hand-made work. The amount of time and delicacy it requires is unbelievable and Owen does it with such refinement and playfulness. You should also take a look at more of his work by visiting his website – there you’ll find a number of pieces he has created for clients such as Harrods, The Guardian, Rolex and The Royal Mail.
The work above are two of his personal projects. The first is called Stargazing and it’s an illustration inspired by the night sky that references various celestial charts. The second is a piece inspired by the recent London Olympics. Both of these pieces (and more) are available for purchase from the website Many Hands, you can also see more of Owen’s work online here.
