Steve Harrington- Illustrator:

Steve Harrington is one illustrator that has really caught my eye recently. I love his simple, yet effective imagery.

When asked what inspires him to create, he replied:

'The whole of everything together at once, the Congos, Planet Earth, You...'

He lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Influenced by Time Life encyclopedias from 1965 through 1972, second hand stores and the '60s psych sounds of The Moody Blues. Each piece of his work is created as a tangible object symbiotically defined of a larger context. His work is often self-inspired. Harrington also creates work for the National Forest Design with fellow artist Justin Krietemeyer. So not only do I like and admire his illustrations, the fact that he supports the National Forest Design, works alongside my EMP campaign on how we are restricting our environment. Sorted!
