“I’ve been work­ing as an il­lus­tra­tor for 13 years now,” ex­plains Ian, who goes by the art name wickedalu­card. “Most of the client il­lus­tra­tions I’ve worked on for the past years are for games and manga ti­tles, and re­cently I’ve started work­ing free­lance in the hope of cre­at­ing more per­sonal projects.”

Ian’s dy­namic work is heav­ily in­flu­enced by manga, an­ime, games and fash­ion, and he grav­i­tates to­wards cre­at­ing move­ment in his lay­outs. “I’m also fond of us­ing pas­tel to sat­u­rate colours, and ap­ply­ing tex­ture to my draw­ings,” he ex­plains.

When not paint­ing up a storm, Ian says he likes play­ing the gui­tar, col­lect­ing art books and play­ing with his six adorable cats.

1 Deli cio us Hunger “This il­lus­tra­tion is for the cover of a per­sonal art book, which I re­leased last Comic Fi­esta 2015. I wanted it to have a sketchy wa­ter­colour feel, with com­plex de­tails, yet or­gan­ised in a way that’s still pleas­ing to look at.”

2 Th e De­cay “This piece was cre­ated as a guest il­lus­tra­tion for the Moth­er­land Chron­i­cles project by ze­mo­tion and to­biee. It’s a very per­sonal piece. I used heavy ink­ing tech­niques to em­pha­sise the dark el­e­ments and the over­all il­lus­tra­tion lay­out.”
