Quebec-based illustrator Luc Melanson caught our eye yesterday, when one of his works accompanied this piece in the New York Times about Olympic poetry. His visual track record gives us every reason to cheer – his work is consistently lively, immediate, and extremely engaging. Along with contributing clever, to-the-point editorial work to the New York Times Book Review, Reader’s Digest US, No Brow, and L’actualité, he also produces personal work and illustrations for children’s books. His use of limited palettes, as well as the highly effective colour gradations and use of texture within, ensure that the images engage immediately and linger afterwards. A true champion, we say!
