Recent illustration graduate Jess Stewart-Croker, is well on her way to carving out a path for herself. Primarily working with traditional media, such as watercolor, gouache and pen and ink, Jess creates painterly and colorful imagery. She has already grabbed a number of impressive assignments for several companies, including several private commissions. Jess can also quite frequently be found with sketchbook in hand making her way through a museum looking for inspiration in the historical references around her.
Jess’s goal in her work has always been to capture the beauty and detail of an object in a traditional and intricate manner, and it’s immediately visible in her imagery from travel to product illustrations. What an impressive start to her career!

The image needed to be playful and fun while also referencing classic Russian poster art. Our thoughts? She nailed it!
The final version is shown below followed by several of her initial concepts. Be sure to check out more of Jean’s exceptional work.
