Siggi Eggertsson

Trends in illustration have churned rapidly in recent years. Change is swift and young artists whose work seems 'fresh' and 'now' arrive on the scene thick and fast, yet disappear just as quickly. Siggi Eggertsson, however, is an up-and-coming illustrator whose developing style has been on the radar of the creative industry for quite some time now, and interest in his artwork shows no sign of abating.

At a time when the handmade aesthetic is going from strength to strength, Eggertsson's work is entirely different. No sketches, doodles or brush strokes. No cutouts or found objects. His style takes advantage of pattern rules, vector shapes, lines and plenty of flat colour. It's a bit like pixel art, softened with a nice analogue twist. He's creating a feel that's simple and expressive, and what is giving him the staying power - and capturing the imagination of art directors and his fellow illustrators - is that he's continuing to develop it.
