Illustration and Cartoon Art Instagram Feed

I recently opened my own instagram art feed with hundreds of my illustrations and cartoons. I am delighted that in a few short weeks it has already gathered almost 800 followers.

I try to update it on a regular basis and I also include spontaneous sketches and doodles and other fun stuff from my studio. So if you like drawing, sketching and doodling then this feed might be for you.

Get your holiday artwork from Illustrator Ian Marsden

 


Dear Friends,

Can you believe that it’ November again? It seems like the months have just flown by since I last sat down to write you a few lines from my illustration studio.

I’ve been having a lot of fun doing freehand sketches between projects. Here are some glimpses into my sketchbooks and Moleskines.


I’ve been posting some of my doodles to my Facebook page and sometimes I also upload short videos of my sketching to my YouTube channel.

Please visit these links to take a peek.

Last year Digades / Dfreeeze (Digades is the market leader in the field of remote controls for car parking heaters) won an advertising award with the print campaign and scribing explainer video animation Dfreeeze “ The Winner Takes it All” featuring my artwork and characters.

This year we created a 12 page comic which continues the adventures of the main protagonists, Michael, Anne, Stefan and Julia and their Dfreeeze car heater remote control application.

I think it turned out great.

Regular client Sanafort AG (a renowned Swiss producer of natural Reishi mushroom and other tonic herbs and food supplements) needed website and newsletter graphics for Christmas and the New Year and to advertise upcoming product launches and promotions.

As always they allowed me a lot of creative freedom and I think the results are quite elegant.


I have been in partnership with VDLR (Visuel de la Redaction) Montpellier, France (a collective of specialists for infographics and data vision) for a few months, as their main illustrator and scribing video expert.
I had a lot of fun being creative and providing the artwork on various projects mainly for the regional government…
…on a wide range of topics, from local traditional sports to mosquito control.

My very good personal friend Helmi Sigg, Swiss actor, comedian, writer and renaissance man has partnered with STEINER Meats to create their own delicious Swiss-made twist on New York Style pastrami.

He entrusted me to create the logo for this culinary delight which is aptly named ‘Pastrelmi’ after it’s creator.

The last few weeks have been very exciting on a personal level, as we have been preparing for my first exhibition of original drawings in quite a while.

Over 60 pieces of artwork are on display in the exhibition, organized by the Association Artistique Monet at the Espace George Brassens in St Gely du Fesc (Montpellier).

I am exhibiting together with famous French cartoonist Ptiluc and two German artists, Heike Negenborn and Carmen Stahlschmidt.

Here is a snapshot of the signed, limited edition posters with my artwork, which is available at the gallery.

The holiday season is right around the corner.

If you still need original cards or animations, festive illustrations or graphics for print or online, I would love to help you create them.

Elegant…


Or fun…
