The work of illustrator Anthony Myers exists in an earthly fantasy. With a surreal touch to his colored pencil work — Myers’ figures appear soft and ghost-like, each page a temporal drift into the start of a narrative. His work straddles the moment between concept and the final rush, treating illustration as exploration where each canvas reveals itself as something new and unique.
There’s a Bill Plympton-like animated tone to Myers’ drawings. They are loose but taut, about to move. His characters are freshly born, created for a story Myers’ has yet to write.
