Kali Ciesemier is a talented illustrator! I love her great use of color and she has a fantastic style when it comes to drawing figures. As a freelance illustrator she has worked for a number of impressive clients including The New Yorker, Harper Collins, and The LA Times. On top of that she also works as an adjunct faculty member at the illustration department at The Maryland Institute College of Art. It’s clear to see that anyone studying there right now is in safe hands!
Reading about how she works on Ape on the Moon I was surprised to discover that all her work is drawn digitally. Her lines have such a natural ‘hand drawn’ quality to them that it seems amazing to me that it was all done in Photoshop with a Wacom Tablet. It’s terrific work and I wish I could make my digital drawings look this organic! You can see more of Kali’s work online by visiting her website.
