Illustrator Research #31- PJ Loughran


PJ Loughran began his career creating illustrations for the Op-Ed pages of the New York Times while attending Parsons School of Design. Over the last 8 years, PJ's work has been recognized by The Art Direct
ors Club of New York, Americ
an Illustration, Communication Arts Magazine, Print Magazine, RSVP, the Society of Publication Designers and the Society of Illustrators of New York and Los Angeles. Since 1999, he has been back at Parsons as a mentor, teaching Illustration. PJ also has a passion for music and has completed his first full-length CD.

PJ's work is sets of colleges using digital aspects and ink, occasionally using silkscreen.  Some of his past clients have been Sports Illustrated, Esquire, The New York Times, Burton Snowboards, GQ, Time, Simon and Schuster, Forbes, Fast Company, Nike, Washington Post, Newsweek, Hasbro, and ESPN.

The topics he covers are broad, but they are all related to cultural aspects, and I feel his style works really well with it.  His digital aspects are also appealing in how they recreate painting techniques with the collage ideas and textures.
