Jonas Bergstrand. Modern Day, Retro Illustrator

January 13, 2011

Jonas Bergstrand was definitely born in the wrong era. His illustrations are a beautiful homage

to the work of the 1950s and 1960s. He says ” I think illustration is much more than just decoration.

A good illustration/illustrator provides illumination. And this doesn’t happen by chance—

it’s not a byproduct to style. Illustration may not be a science but it certainly communicates in a

precise way. He creates the initial drawing in Illustrator and then ‘fills in’ the detail using Photoshop.

What amazing stylish work and all from a guy who’s not even 40!

… absolutely no envy factor happening here at all !! Lol

Also there’s a great interview with Jonas by Layers Magazine, available here.
