Every Monday has a Silver Lining

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Pascal Campion’s illustrations are ours.

He works with areas of direct colour, sometimes augmented with textures, but his images are fundamentally graphic. The visual charm of his drawings is carried by springy, energetic compositions. Campion is a master at selecting colours that evoke mood, time and place with a unique and simple finesse. Campion’s use of distinct light and shadow, and in particular splashes and patches of bright light within subdued backgrounds highlights the focus of his images. He has a wonderful ability to use these effects, along with strong compositions to create an atmosphere and energy to even the most unassuming of subjects. His subject matter of intimate domestic scenes and quiet moments of solitude become just as visually compelling as a raucous action scene would be. Campion does a daily sketch which sends to his followers everyday and posts to his Facebook page.
