One of the lures of Rune Fisker’s illustrations is his interesting use of perspective. Playing with geometry, line and shadow, his off-centre focus adds a sense of motion to his surreal and captivating drawings. When we featured the Danish illustrator last year, Rune was showcasing his prints and in-progress sketches, in this update we see some of his latest commissions from the likes of The New Yorker, Wired and ZeitMagazin.
While still communicating the brief, it’s great to see Rune keeping hold of his atmospheric style in his commissions. In various illustrations, Rune details falling figures, tilted portraits and an elongated couple dancing. As they peek from behind the shadows, Rune offsets the darkness with beautiful, thick pastel colours for an intriguing contrast.
