Jo Illustrates!






Work featuring great color, architecture, an eye for design, and fun shops?! Yes please! If this intrigues you as much as us, check out Jo Illustrates!

Jo Illustrates! is a project by a Sydney based artist who dabbles in illustration; she draws inspiration from a past life of studying graphic design and architecture, working in a graphic style that is detail orientated.

Jo was kind enough to give us some insight into how she approaches her work:

I use a combination of copic markers, paint pens and felt tip markers in my work and find the materials I use inform the type of art I create. Almost as if they are in charge and it's my job to figure out how to form an image from their application.

I find approaching my art in this way is not only expressive, but methodical and puzzle like. 
I am inspired by architecture, music, travel, design, pattern and colour.
