Detailed, bold and narrative, is what Arjun Parikh’s art represents. A professional illustrator and graphic designer based in Los Angeles, his artistic roots go back to his childhood days when he would adorn his books with doodles and drawings! These experiences pushed him to follow his passion and pursue a degree in Graphic Design which was followed by a Master of Fine Arts degree in Illustrations.
While Arjun has a fondness for creating hand-drawn art, for the digital medium he prefers Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Beginning his design process with a solid brief putting all the key information in one place, he assigns specific words to his design and creates a bunch of thumbnail sketches. Converting these into compositional drawings, Arjun believes in keeping the client in the loop throughout the process to gather their perspective and inputs. Hoping to be an educator someday, Arjun is inspired by the works of Takehiro Nikai and Aaron Horkey amongst others.
