Talk about ramping it up – it was only a couple of months back that we were marvelling at the amount of work Cynthia Kittler had taken on since graduating, and now she’s back again with shedloads more.

There’s the cover and spot illustrations for the Washington Post’s 2014 Book Review for starters, which is a feat in itself for any illustrator. There are editorial images for the New York Times and Creative Review, exercising Cynthia’s impressive ability to mould her style to any story. There’s even a book; an illustrated version of Robert Gernhardt’s Die Falle, a story in which a student dressed as Santa Claus organises a wild house party with the Angel Gabriel and St Nicholas to lead the children he’s babysitting astray, printed with Japanese binding so that every other page has to be torn open to reveal the text inside, like an advent calendar.

Perhaps most exciting though is just Cynthia’s supreme grasp of her medium. It’s loose and playful when she wants it to be, crisp when it comes to those impressive commissions, and she still seems to be finding plenty of time to play if her blog is anything to go by. Is there anything this girl can’t do? We predict great things.
