In illustrator Patrick Kyle’s drawings, ghoulish characters and disembodied limbs wander around a streetscape full of wilting plants. Sounds eerie, but Kyle’s brightly contrasting color schemes give his work a playful feel. His ilustraciones are like frames from a strange children’s film, or a comic book with a meandering plot.
In fact, the Toronto-based artist has put out several zines and books, most recently Don’t Come In Here, published by Koyama Press. The storyline of this comic, as explained by Koyama, is typical of Kyle’s style: “Looking for an inexpensive live/work space, an anonymous character settles on a supernatural apartment that has a seemingly unlimited number of identical rooms.”
In addition to his personal work, Kyle has worked with a number of publications, including Lucky Peach, El New York Times, y Bloomberg Businessweek. He shared a selection of recent illustrations with us, revealing a style that favors super minimal composition, creating a sense of mood and scene with just a few carefully placed lines.
