Marcos Chin

Here is a little blurb about another of my favorite illustrators: Marcos Chin.

Marcos Chin is an award-winning illustrator based in New York. He has worked on a variety of projects including wall designs, books, CD covers, advertisements, fashion, and magazines. He also has his own T-shirt label called Yee Yee. Marcos also teaches at the School of Visual Arts.

Marcos' illustrations are beautifully detailed with his elegant lifework. He creates dream-like worlds with bright colours. Many of his illustrations include flowers and plants. Marcos also uses a lot of pattern in his work.

Little spot

A little spot illustration I did for Discorder magazine. They are putting out a zine for a fundraiser and were looking for submissions. They gave several themes to choose from, the ones I did were independant media and Vancouver.

This is the original print.

Capability Club logo

This is a logo I completed recently for Capability Club, an after-school program for kids with disabilities. I worked in the tagline visually, which is "Nutrition + Skills + Community = Growth". I also used hand drawn lettering for the company name. The tree and leaves in the center symbolize growth.

Broken Pencil illustrations

In December I worked on two illustrations for Broken Pencil magazine, a zine and independant arts magazine. They were for two short stories, one titled "Girl" and the other "Dissections".

This one is for "Girl", a short story about a girl getting lost in the forest, and starts to hallucinate.

This one is for "Dissections", about a high school biology class, and a mishap that happens.

These are the roughs for the two illustrations.

This is my submission to the first issue of Future Fossil Flora, a UK-based magazine. Each issue they feature a different flower. The first issue is the poppy. I illustrated a prickly poppy. They want the images to be a modern interpretation of botanical illustrations, so I kept it simple with a cream background.

Getting back into silkscreen these past couple weeks. I bought a silkscreen kit from Opus and have been trying it out at home. This is my first print. It works pretty good, I found the screen let through a lot of ink, not what I'm used to. Also my first time using Mask Ease, which is like a big sticker that you stick to your screen to physically block the ink and make the stencil.

This print is available on t-shirts from Threadless! 

Here are some process pics.

My sketch that I worked from, figuring out the layers on tissue paper first.

The first layer, stencil ready and ready to print. The yellow stuff is the Mask Ease, which you cut out your stencil from.

Print with two layers down. Homemade drying system.

Last layer, the black layer. This was a little tricky to cut out from the Mask Ease, because of the thin lines. But it worked out OK.

Completed print, hanging to dry.
