UK-based illustrator Karl James Mountford injects a wonderful vibrancy into his designs. His subjects — the monkey, the deer, the elephant, are brilliantly alive. Energetic and amusing.
There’s a kind heart and joy to Mountford’s work — he brings a balance of spontaneity and thoughtful design to his digital canvas. The textures and color palette have the history of the Disney and Golden Book illustrations of Mary Blair, but Mountford does not mimic, he expands on those Blair hallmarks and creates a set of his own.
