Illustrator Aaron Fernandez depicts a cast of funny fellows in his fluoro palette of highlighter yellow, pink and green. Taking on commissions for Buzzfeed News and Giphy Studios as well as some self-initiated student work for The New York Times, Aaron’s bright and happy sensibilities are portrayed through not only his colour choice but also his clean linework and fresh interpretations of familiar subjects.
In his works, Brooklyn-based Aaron explores topics including gender-segregated toilets, fantasy sports, Silicon Valley and the way we sleep. Through his communicative illustrations, he manages to condense these sprawling ideas into digestible images. His use of canary-yellow characters gives his work personality as their expressive convey a mood with little detail.
