Studio Visit - Sydney illustrators Christopher Neilsen, Nigel Buchanan and more!

View from Christopher Neilsen's colourful workspace...

Illustrations by Christopher Neilsen

Christopher Neilsen, Nigel Buchanan, Lew Keilar, Stuart McLachlan and Jim Tsinganos are five excellent and well-established illustrators who share a lovely big studio space in Sydney's Surry Hills.. great space, great work... thought you might like to see!!

Thanks so much to Christopher for the shots! I have actually blogged a little of his and Nigel's work before... but hadn't seen some of this other great work until recently. WOWSERS, such brilliant stuff ! I especially love Stuart MachLachlan's vintage-poster-esque illustrations for Singapore Airlines etc... and how about his paper styling?! I am not sure if there is enough room in my brain to lodge another name under the 'awesome paper artist' category. Lucky I have an external hard drive (aka a blog!) to store all these things!

ps) Dearest readers, as tomorrow is Good Friday, I have decided to take a day away from blogland so I will not be posting tomorrow! Shocking I know! :) See you next week as usual! xx
