    Skip Hursh: Off Screen II

Art: Multi-coloured abstracts hand-drawn in ink by artist and illustrator Skip Hursh

Posted by James Cartwright,

American illustrator and designer Skip Hursh was born and raised in the mid-west before making the hallowed pilgrimage to New York to ply his trade as a freelance creative among the ramshackle warehouse conversions of Brooklyn. By day (like many of our favourite US illustrators) he can be found animating and designing for kids’ TV channel Nickelodeon and by night he keeps himself busy with personal projects when he’s not working slavishly for freelance clients.

These images represent some of Skip’s nocturnal pursuits; a series of large-scale brush and ink drawings created for a group show called Off Screen II. These large abstractions recall the playful imagery of Keith Haring, albeit without those little dancing guys hanging out all over the place. Take a look at the video below to see how Skip made them.
