I’ve been watching the development of illustrator/designer Joel Van Der Knaap by stalking his website for a little while now. It’s been interesting to watch the development of his style to where he is just really hitting it out of the park, so to speak. I’m loving his pop/1970s style illustration interpreted through a modern day street aesthetic such as the above piece designed for Mondayjazz.com. I’m happy to see that he’s working on a project with Kim Seppelt-Deakin of Sherpa/The Inkroom, another local Adelaide design dynamo, on a project for for D’Angelo Coffee, the snippet I’ve seen so far looks spectacular, I can’t wait to see the final product. Adelaide is producing some amazing illustration talent at the moment.
