With his work in magazines like GQ, CMYK, and dozens of others, Dongyun Lee is an illustrator who really knows how to promote his own works. He’s sent us handfuls of postcards through the years, and it’s about time we feature his work on our blog. Whether it be in his brightly-colored, well-composed illustrations or his delicate black and white drawings, Lee’s style incorporates a fine balance of graphic design elements with classic illustration techniques. His pieces are full and ornamental without ever being too busy, which is a balance that is a difficult to achieve. The piece above is a fine example, as it is brimming with whimsy, imagination, composition, and a surrealistic background that seems to push on infinitely into the background.
Lee also has a new website, so be sure to check it out.
