Midwestern (yeah Midwest represent!) illustrator Micah Lidberg has updated with a new website and a few new pieces of work. From those I have spoken with, all I hear is how nice of a guy he is and how hard he works at what he does. I was told that he actually creates some of his illustrations at a very large scale and then shrinks them down to maintain all of the detail. I am not sure if that is exactly how he generates some of his detail-rich imagery, but nonetheless it is a party for the eyes.
I was given a signed print of his work from Hugo & Marie, and it is one of my favorite art prints. The colors in the print are gorgeous. It’s a shame we spend so much time looking at design and illustration online when in order to truly understand and feel it you really need to see it in print. The same can definitely be said for Micah’s work. When you do see his illustrations in print, they are much much more striking.
