Illustrator Research #34- Lucinda Levine


Lucinda Levine illustrates a wide variety of material and subject matter with an emphasis on clear insight, keen concept and clever metaphor. Clients have said of her work, "I know who to call when I can't come up with anything - Lucinda will have the solution." She holds Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Arts degrees in illustration from Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts and now freelances from the Washington, DC area.

A list of some of her clients include The Washington Post, The Washington Times, The Los Angeles Times, National Geographic World, American Enterprise, National Safe Kids Campaign, President's Council on Physical Fitness, USDA Design Center, Graduate School, USDA, Legal Times, NASTAD, and The Red Cross.

Her work method overall involves pen and ink illustrations with some pieces including watercolor; the pen and ink also involves various markmaking.

I do like her lineart with pen and ink, as it seems very dynamic along with her markmaking. Her style is interesting, as some of her figures are very naturalistic while others are more abstract and stylized.
