- HOW THINGS WORK
Russell Cobb is a leading artist Illustrator based in the UK. Russell has received many industry awards including D&AD Silver and 5 Association of Illustrators Best of British Gold awards. In 2003 the Independent UK national newspaper voted him one of Britain's top ten Illustrators.
Russell was awarded Best in Book in Creative Review's Illustration Annual, 2011.
Russell's work has been featured in many international publications, amongst others 3X3 magazine New York, Tecknaren Stockholm and Illusive, Contemporary Illustration Berlin. Russell has collaborated with many leading art directors in advertising, design, publishing, editorial and interactive media.
The aspects of Russell's work that attracted me the most, is his ways of presenting both imagery and typography in his illustrations: I think that the images he produces are already so strong, considering colour choice and composition, that the writing is left out on the background.
