Artist Melinda Beck posts new illustrations today
"My work is a hybrid of computer and hand done. I will often take sculptural pieces and digital photography and combine those elements into the illustration." Her illustrative process begins with many quick thumbnail sketches, including "words or anything else that comes to mind," she says. "I will look at art books for inspiration just to get my mind moving in different directions."
Melinda Beck's illustrations have received awards from and publication in annuals including American Illustration, The Art Directors Club, Society of Publication Designers, Communication Arts, Print Magazine, The Society of Illustrators, The AIGA and ID Magazine. Most recently her work was featured at a new acquisitions show at the Library of Congress.
