Keith Negley is a Brooklyn based artist and illustrator who does work for clients like The New York Times, McSweeney’s, Nobrow and a bunch of other rad publications. Keith recently sent me a link to his work and I was totally impressed by everything I saw.
Keith’s work really stands out to me because of a few key elements. I love how he plays with scale in a lot of his pieces, whether it’s a giant deer being hunted by tiny hunters or a little couple laying amongst a forest of windmills. He also uses a lot of textures in his pieces which gives each of them a richness and a ton of character. Everything has a painterly touch to it, like the image below with the forst of trees or the last image of the man on the plane. It’s a bit abstract but with enough details to place meaning.
I’ve posted lots of Keith’s work below (I couldn’t edit myself, his work is too good) but you should also visit his site, there’s lots more there to look through.
