A.Richard Allen . Illustration for all seasons.

December 22, 2011

A. Richard Allen is a prolific illustrator with a range of styles. The images below come from Drawger, where I came across his work.  It’s great that he shows us his sketches too.

Richard has worked for numerous UK and US clients in editorial, design and advertising including the Folio Society, Plansponsor, New York Times, Washington Post, WSJ, Utne, The Guardian, FT, The Times, The Independent, The Daily Telegraph, Esquire, New Statesman, Reader’s Digest, BBC Worldwide, Nokia , Siemens, Orange, and Greenpeace. The following images come from the Illoz site.

He has illustrated on such a diverse range of subjects from Penguin Books, Green Issues, to how children play and the plight of the Salmon.

I like the scratchy marks and the beautiful colours he uses in his work.

I love the amusing cat with the gun and cuckoo clock illustration.  There’s even some Christmas inspired images here.

And he also has a fun children’s style, not unlike that of Quentin Blake. What a talented guy !

Folio Society have a small range of his prints available if you’re interested.  If you like this style you might also like Tatsuro Kiuchi’s work here.
