Illustrator Research #19- Ariel McMillion

Ariel McMillion has lived in Gothenburg, Sweden for six years; he maintains a delicate balance between imagination and delusion. Ariel has impersonated impersonators, been suspected of international espionage, and repeatedly written the first page of an epic novel. Ariel studied Studio Art at the University of Texas at Austin. Today, his style attracts clients for its dynamic compositions, its conceptual flare, and its irreverent attitude.

Some of his clients have been Austin Monthly Magazine, Alaska Monthly magazine, Axe deodorant, CocaCola, GARP magazine, G.Q. magazine, Moore magazine, The Perfect Vision magazine, Pilsner Urquell, Piraja magazine, Slitz magazine, Sun Microsystems, TicTac, and Wrigley.

His working method consists of combining various elements to create collages. His work seems to focus on digital methods and ink.

His work is very detailed, yet very graphic to me. I really enjoy his lineart along with his concepts. Some of his coloring style seems to vary, but overall it has a very crisp look to it that really makes the colors stand out.
