    Keith Negley: Christianity Today (detail)

Illustrating life's gloomy side perfectly, Keith Negley's illustrations are beautiful

Posted by Anya Lawrence,

It takes an impressive person to put a positive spin on life’s gloomy patches; after all “the undeniable impact mankind has had on the planet” has never been the rosiest of conversation topics. But what an impressive man Keith Negley is; illustrating the gloomiest of things in the most beautiful ways. It has to be said that this New York creative is one fine illustrator!

Specialising in editorial and with a client list stretching further than a can of silly string in the hands of a smarties-infused five year old, (try The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg for some name-dropping) it’s easy to see why he’s so regularly commissioned.

With his never-ending colour palette and exploration of life’s dark themes – including depression (New York Times Book Review: Michael Mogriff) and loss (New York Times Book Review: Graham Swift) – in a uniquely beautiful and curious way, Keith’s illustrations are some of the most sensitive we’ve laid eyes on.
