Oooh sorry this blog currently seems to be all about commercial illustration. I can't help it! I am so often inspired by the work of local illustrators... and more often than not, my favourite finds hail from Jacky Winter's very talented clan.

Clemens Habicht is one such name - he's an illustrator, graphic designer and film director based in Paris, but originally from Sydney. Apparently his name means Hawk in German. Maybe that explains the feathered flocks who recurr so frequently in his work.

Anyway, I love his tempered colour palette, and the perfectly balanced combination of cut paper, ink and gouache. It's a little bit Kat Macleod, only for boys. ;)

Habicht's Illustrations have appeared in Creative Review Magazine, The Bulletin, Antenna Music Video Showcase, the fashion creations of Michelle Jank, and the Edinburgh Film festival. He also makes music videos based on his illustrations... visit his website or his Jacky Winter folio for more.
