Autumn Whitehurst

The arrival of Autumn Whitehurst on the illustration scene was a defining moment in digital creativity. Sure, there were talented digital illustrators out there already. However, Whitehurst's combination of vector line work, delicate texturing and a real eye for beauty gave art directors something more: a dreamy kind of digital perfection beyond what the camera is capable of. In 2002 Whitehurst took the illustration world by storm, and ever since then she's been working hard for clients in the top echelons of fashion publishing. She has also evolved her style, making her images simpler, clearer and, dare we say it, even more beautiful.
