    Clay Hickson: Still Life

Pencil, crayons, computer – illustrator Clay Hickson can do it all

Posted by Alex Moshakis,

Devastating with a pencil – that’s what artist Clay Hickson is, although he’s equally talented with crayons it seems, and boy does he know his way around Adobe Illustrator. Hickson’s work is vibrant and commonly surreal (he features Calder-like mobiles within Dalí-inspired compositions, apparently just for the hell of it), and although his illustrations sometimes straddle the borders of overly-trendy, it’s often genuinely accomplished. All hail Hickson, you strange, wonderfully-talented man!
