Every year, Creative Boom Magazine releases a list of illustrators they predict will make a big splash in the new year. We were thrilled to read that three of our illustrators have been featured in this year’s roundup, “30 awesome illustrators to follow for inspiration in 2021.” In this article, Creative Boom shares a short bio and illustration for each illustrator. Congratulations to the inspiring John Jay Cabuay, Pete Lloyd, and Loe Lee!
“Represented by Rapp Art, John Jay Cabuay is an illustrator based in New York City. His illustrations have graced the covers of newspapers, magazines, and book jackets worldwide. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, he believes that “learning how to draw from the model” helped him to grow in different directions and gave him opportunities to feature his skills in different markets and different continents from Japan to South Africa. He was recently featured in a book by Taschen called ‘100 Illustrators’, a book about the 100 important illustrators around the world.”
“Loe Lee is a designer-illustrator based in New York City. Her whimsical illustrations capture short stories in every image and bring a little magic to the everyday. From digital vectors to packaging design and large-scale installations, Loe is represented by Rapp Art.”
“Pete Lloyd is a Northern Irish illustrator living in Madrid, Spain. His work begins with hand-drawn compositions using traditional media which he develops and finishes digitally. Drawing inspiration from film, books, comics and nature “at its most epic”, he loves to use bold colour and play with light to create drama and atmosphere. Represented by Rapp Art, his clients include Paramount Pictures, Popular Mechanics, and Steelarchive.”
