Jean Phillipe Delhomme

As an illustrator you need to understand the human body – but having looked at and understood nature, you must develop an ability to look away and capture the balance between what you’ve seen and what you imagine.

Jean Phillipe, a French born Fashion illustrator 1959, who has done work with animated commercials, and even created his own children book called Visit to Another Planet, as well as two fully illustrated novels.

I think he does it very well with his balance of colours tones and contrasts, he uses lots of organic strokes and solid colours with a mixture of different pallets

Even his sketches portray  balance with nothing but coloured pencil lines.
