I stumbled upon one of my favorite illustrator’s Flickrfolio today and that illustrator is none other than Jonathan Zawada. Of particular interest was this clever ‘bust’ portrait of Michael Jackson for an unpublished magazine article.

Jonathan Zawada has kept busy. The best way to see what he has been up to is by checking in on his ‘commercial portfolio‘ where there looks to be a lot of activity since I last dropped in a long while back.

Australian artist Jonathan Zawada has updated his site with a new series of paintings for an exhibition at the Prism Gallery in Los Angeles. It’s a retro 70′s feeling collection of landscape imagery that was created through an extremely unique process described by Zawada himself below.

“An exhibition of large scale drawings and oil paintings at Prism Gallery, Los Angeles from December 16, 2010 – February 28, 2011. The landscape topographies were derived from graph data (displayed as printed mirrors on accompanying plinths), modeled in 3D and then oil paintings created from those 3D renders. For more information, visit the Prism website.”

Sixpack France was kind enough to ship me a copy of a 64 page zine featuring the work of Australian Graphic Designer and Illustrator Jonathan Zawada. The copy is sitting on my desk now as a source of inspiration. The zine is titled “Can The Drummer Give Some More” and is printed on an oversized format of 24x32cm.

I am a big fan of Zawada’s work and there are some silky smooth drawings in the zine that I really appreciated. It’s an attractive piece of work and very high quality for a zine. I highly recommend checking it out if you are at all interested in Zawada’s work. It was a nice way to get my hands on something tangible that had multiple examples of his unique artwork in a large format on heavy paper.

You can purchase the zine here for 25 Euro and check out more of Zawada’s work at his personal website.
