THE DOSE – ILLUSTRATOR EDITION

#1Introduction

I’m Sarah Rosado, a New York based illustrator and photographer. I love anything that has to do with Art and I’m always challenging myself in creating different styles of art form. I love variety and as such you will find a reflection of that in my art work, from fashion illustrations to thought provoking photographic images.

What are you creatively addicted to? When did you start?

My interest in art began at the age of five drawing sketches and doodling everything I could get my hands on.  Through the years I continued to draw and to this day I describe myself as an artist of the mind, body and soul. I consider my work a reflection into the world, the way I see it.  What I am creatively addicted to is creating images that has an effect on people, to make them think.

What’s your inspiration?

I’m inspired by many things such as current trends, social issues, nature, life, humor, spirituality, etc.  I love creating and experimenting with new ideas and challenging myself.  It’s a drive that pushes me to a different level each time which is very rewarding.

Do you have any upcoming projects?

I’m still working on my dirt project and will continue until I reach my goal of 100 pieces. Afterwards I will be doing something new and creative but that is still in the early stages.

Where can people find your work?

Name one thing you would like people to know about you.

I’m a perfectionist, which I consider somewhat of a flaw because no matter what I do I always feel it could be improved.

ILLUSTRATIONS BY CHOCO MOO

My first introduction to the corky, creative, Japanese illustrator Choco Moo was on Instagram. Her simple, but bold black and white illustrations are so eye-catching and of course full of coolness. I love how she visualizes classic cartoons. Who knew Alf could handle the mic?

ILLUSTRATIONS BY KAWS

Artist and designer, Brian Donnelly b.k.a. KAWS is a graduate of New York City’s School of Visual Arts. KAWS started his career as a graffiti artist while growing up in Jersey City, New Jersey. He has done animation work on the Disney film 101 Dalmatians, as well as the animated shows Daria and Doug. He’s no stranger to having his images on clothing and in art galleries.

I first saw KAWS’ work on Tumblr and recently I had the opportunity to see some upcoming work that he did for the retailer that I work for. I really dig his use of color and how he puts a dope spin on old school cartoons.

You can read about and see more of KAWS’ work here and here.

WHAT KT DOES ~ ILLUSTRATIONS

As I walked passed my coworker’s desk one day, I noticed these really pretty postcards with illustrations of dainty, whimsical women on them. She couldn’t remember where she got them, but I made sure to memorize the website printed on the cards so that I could Google it myself. Once I found the site, I was overwhelmed by an explosion of creativity, color, posies and butterflies; some of my favorite things. The website that I am referring to is WhatKTDoes.Com. Katy “KT” Smail, a New York based Illustrator by way of Scotland has clients that include Macy’s, Land’s End and Papier Mache. She’s even illustrated a book entitled (S)mythology – a “contemporary fairy tale.”

Check out some of her illustrations below.
