Creatively Awesome Finds Features People

Startling Editorial Illustrations by Simon Prades


Amidst the existence of advanced and tidier ways to do art, some artists still choose to incorporate traditional ways or tools on their craft. The freelance illustrator, Simón Prades, for instance, prefers ink, pencil and paper as his medium, and then uses computer for the finishing touches in creating awesome art.

Here’s a look of some of his works.

From what I observe, his works are mostly editorial illustrations on current events, politics and the likes maybe because most of them are commissioned by newspapers and magazines. What I admire about his style is that he is able to preserve the rawness of his works. You know when you have a drawing and you don’t want to put some color in it because you’re happy of how it looks already. His works has that feel on them.

Overall, dense line works, sketchy strokes and rough textures in his art had me.
