In Playful Fashion: The Illustrations of Avalon Nuovo

 

The figures of illustrator Avalon Nuovo are elastic — at times faceless, others drawn with the harsh profile of Roman sculpture. They twist and hang throughout the page, changing the composition with jutted hips and elbows, exaggerated proportions.

Nuovo grounds each piece through her figures, folding them around the space in playful fashion and above all Nuovo highlights movement, joyful, thoughtful, wonderfully human movement.
