I love what Brazil based illustrator Raul Aguiar has done to the latest illustration trend that I wish would just die already, the boring, flat plains of minimalism. It is overplayed, with minimalist reboots of movie posters and book covers and blahblahblah coming out seemingly non-stop. We get it, Richard Amsel didn’t know what he was doing when he designed and painted the Raiders of the Lost Ark poster. From my perspective Raul has injected life, verve and texture to this lifeless fad. He doesn’t seem to be shouting “hey, look at how clever I am and I did it with a few clicks of the mouse and 2 colors!”, he just gets on with the business of creating digital images with a bit of fun.
