Nioikehai16list Work / Art Prolific artist Miroco Machiko’s animal menagerie

With distorted bodies, crossed eyes and friendly expressions, Miroco Machiko’s portfolio of animal illustrations is exactly the kind of zoo we can get behind. The Osaka-born, Tokyo-based artist and illustrator has an incredible knack for capturing the magic of the animal kingdom, her expressive brushstrokes and rainbow palette transforming even the most mundane creatures – moths for example – into glorious beasts.

8 Work / Art Judit Kristensen on the pace and vulnerability of her pencil portraits

“I like bad drawers, or I like when there are vulnerable elements in a drawing,” says artist Judit Kristensen. From Umeå in the north of Sweden but currently based in Copenhagen, Judit has tried to hang on to some of the less-than-perfect technical details from when she first started working in this style two years ago. “ I guess time has made me a better draftsman – for better and for worse. I prefer empathetic over perfection, and you cant really be voluntarily bad to make a drawing vulnerable. I think that would have an opposite effect.”

K_l_printlist Work / Art Artist Jesse Draxler on finding clarity through greyscale

“When I began working exclusively in greyscale is when everything seemed to start to make sense,” says artist and illustrator Jesse Draxler of his dark, brooding style that combines collaged photography and painting, manifesting in large-scale paintings or commissioned illustrations. “It’s as if by freeing my mind from having to think about colour I had gained a greater clarity for everything else, like when someone loses a sense their other senses heighten to compensate.” Jesse suspects that his preference for a black and white palette is informed by the fact he’s colour blind, or “colour deficient” as he calls it. “Though I don’t put too much weight behind just that.”

Karenlederer-art-itsnicethat-list Work / Art Karen Lederer's paintings reference everything from pets to politics

“I am endlessly interested in the tropes of still life painting,” artist Karen Lederer tells It’s Nice That. As a result of Karen’s object focused fascination, the artist has endlessly inspired us too with her paintings which present the ordinary, from pairs of Converse to bottled fizzy drinks, in a vivid style using a hyperreal colour palette.

Sondraperry-art-itsnicethat-list2 Work / Art Artist Sondra Perry uses avatars and animation to challenge representations of blackness

For her first European solo show Typhoon Coming On, American artist Sondra Perry has transformed the walls of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery into a seasick-inducing corridor of computer generated waves. Made using open-source software Ocean Modi, the purple hue references the programmes colour warning, which appears when there’s a problem with the simulation. Every so often the projections flick to the manipulated surface of J.M.W. Turner’s 1840 painting Slave Ship (Slavers Throwing Overboard the Dead and Dying, Typhoon Coming On), the canvas grossly deformed into an oily sludge.

Marlonilg-blossomseries-graphicdesign-itsnicethat-list Work / Graphic Design Marlon Ilg looks back to his art school years for his innovative, type-led designs

Zurich-based graphic designer Marlon Ilg’s creations are characterised by their unconventional, offbeat typographic arrangements. Having worked on a broad range of design jobs from independent research projects to corporate visual identities, Marlon has years of experience under his belt. His ongoing series for local exhibition space Blossom, in particular, has offered him the opportunity to move beyond his comfort zone, experimenting and exploring alternative formats. “Blossom is an artist-run space in Zurich, which was set up by Gregory Hari, a local performance artist. Dedicated to the idea of collaboration, Blossom changes its structure according to the various projects it takes on. Each new endeavour involves inviting an external individual or group to create a new creative dynamic. Blossom has been a hotspot for exhibitions, workshops and underground parties since 2016,” Marlon tells It’s Nice That.

Animalpress-delirium-jinheehan-baptistevirot-illustration-itsnicethat-2list Work / Illustration Baptiste Virot's dizzy and disorientating new comic, Delirium

Acid-drenched colours and vibrant compositions permeate Animal Press’ archive of risograph zines and illustrations. The Belgian-Korean publishing house was originally set up in 2013 by Jinhee Han who was subsequently joined by It’s Nice That’s much-loved illustrator Baptiste Virot. After printing multiple publications in South Korea, the duo moved back to Belgium but didn’t completely cut their Korean tie. “We spent more than two and a half months producing our first two books of the year because we wanted to print them ourselves. It took a really long time. It was difficult but fun. We then met a guy in Seoul who loved printing so we proposed he start his own riso atelier. He followed our advice and named it Animal Print. We now work with Animal Print in order to produce as many publications as possible,” Jinhee tells It’s Nice That.

Vivien-hoffmann-graphic-design-itsnicethat-list Work / Graphic Design Vivien Hoffmann mixes Swiss design with drop shadows, metallic effects and touches of humour

“On the one hand I admire the simplicity and lucidity of Swiss graphic design and, on the other hand, I can’t stop using drop shadows and metallic effects,” German graphic designer Vivien Hoffmann tells It’s Nice That. “However,” she adds, “I don’t think one necessarily excludes the other – mixing styles and combining unrelated elements often leads to the results I’m most happy with.”

Michela-zoppi-graphic-design-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Publication Michela Zoppi's conceptual approach to graphic design explores the social role of the designer

Although it’s a medium packed full of practical applications, graphic design also promotes the exploration of ideas from a conceptual standpoint and it’s this space that Italian designer Michela Zoppi’s work firmly occupies. Inspired by a host of references that include the typographic experiments of the Futurist Movement, William Blake’s poetry and Jean Lucas Godard’s films, Michela has developed an incredibly conceptual and thought-provoking approach to her work.

Joshking-khruangbin-evanfinsthethirdroom-film-itsnicethat-3 Work / Film Josh King directs video for Khruangbin featuring a lady hula-hooping her way through Shanghai

A few years back we described designer, director and previous It’s Nice That graduate Josh King as a “Kingston graduate who spends his days being paid to come up with brilliant ideas because that’s exactly what he’s best at.” This statement remains undoubtedly true. In his latest creative endeavour Josh directed Khruangbin’s genius music video for their song Evan Finds The Third Room, which involves Han Li, a smiling lady in green, picking up an imaginary hula hoop while taking out the trash. She then proceeds to dance her way through Shanghai’s various neighbourhoods.

Nathan-hackett-illustration-itsnicethat-listimage Work / Illustrator Nathan Hackett's playful illustrations explore relationships between humans and their surroundings

British illustrator Nathan Hackett is a story weaver; writing playful narratives for the characters who inhabit the intricate buildings he creates. Illustrating since he was 11 years old — at first doodles in his maths books, then blow-pens won as a prize on the nineties hit TV show Art Attack and later studying illustration at Bournemouth College of Art, Nathan’s work powerfully and playfully sparks conversation on how we, as people, interact with our surroundings.

Plusmurs-lesfichiersphotographiques3-graphicdesign-itsnicethat-11list Work / Publication Les Fichiers Photographiques: where graphic design meets photography

Unlike other art publications, Les Fichiers Photographiques hones in on just one photographer and explores their work in the context of a broader social issue. The annual journal is the work of Plus Mûrs, a Nantes-based creative studio founded by Méric Chaperon, Vincent Labas and Nassim Bouaza. After graduating from L’ École de Design Nantes Atlantique, the three friends parted ways, working and interning at various studios around the world. However, they soon regrouped in Nantes and decided to pursue their creative interests as a team.

One-shot-photography-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Photography One Shot: the gallery offering "the most limited, limited edition photos ever" from top photographers

“It’s tangible, romantic, rich and vibrant,” replies Daan van Dam when asked what it is he loves about analogue photography. “The patience you need to have and the uncertainty of whether a shot will be a masterpiece or a mistake is the beauty of it all.” It’s this poetic concept that became the essence of One Shot, a project developed by Daan alongside Zack McDonald and Zorica Radovic.

Ronnie-fueglister-graphic-design-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Graphic Design Designer Ronnie Fueglister explores “dramaturgy, reading habits, binding and the book as an object”

Some of the most pleasing book designs are born from the simplest decisions, from subtle nuances that perfectly encapsulate the message of the book’s content. This is certainly the case with Basel-based graphic designer, Ronnie Fueglister’s array of artist books. Always produced in close collaboration with the artist, Ronnie’s work is varied in its visual language but one thing binds his projects: simple, yet smart design choices.

Vicki-king-photography-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Photography Photographer Vicki King’s latest work is as dreamy and otherworldly as ever

Vicki King is one of those photographers whose images make you want to step straight into the world they create. Her subjects seem to inhabit somewhere else – an eternally sunny place, their faces awash with warm hues of orange and pink. This otherworldly-ness is no mistake explains the London-based photographer, who admits to having an obsession with wanting to exist in a “timeless dreamscape.”

Uleslebarazer-illustration-itsnicethat-list Work / Illustration Meet the anatomically-minded illustrator Jules Le Barazer

Police cars made out of fingers and caterpillar men munching on leaves, Jules Le Barazer’s imagination seems to have no limits. Having worked with world-renowned publications like Zeit Magazin, Le Monde and Libération, the Paris-based illustrator has covered a broad range of topics from technological experimentation to Mikhail Bulgakov’s Heart of a Dog. Each subject is, however, illustrated through an anatomical lens. “For my graduation project, I created a book about an amusement park that was built on a human body. Visitors could ride through the digestive system, eat liposuctioned fat or even climb over a silicone breast that was threatening to erupt,” Jules tells It’s Nice That.
