I recently stumbled upon the website of illustrator Christian Montenegro and instantly loved his work. He is an Argentinian illustrator who's work spans many different outlets including books, editorial and advertising. Most of his work is created digitally, but the look of his work does vary as some includes a lot of pattern and textures, and other work is a lot more colourful with clean lines and no texture. His textured work has a look of traditional paintings and murals, even slightly religious perhaps, as if they are inspired by the type of old paintings found in churches. Other pieces of his work have a decidedly more digital look about them, with some pieces referencing old pixel based digital graphics. I really love all of his work, and like that he is able to work in different ways without losing the sense of identity he has built up. I've posted some examples of his work below for you to get your peepers on, and remember to check out his website here for more. Enjoy...
