Welcome to Mad Skills Monday, where we showcase top work from young creatives to bring some inspiration to beat the post-weekend blues. Today we wallow in the beautiful sadness of Daniel Jamie Williams’ illustrations.
Power tool: Pencils, paints and PCs
Power song: The Knife – Heartbeats
Power snack: Cheap Pinot Grigio and Mid-Range Brie
The work of Daniel Jamie Williams explores melancholia in all its shapes and forms. A combination of digital and hand-drawn images express a classical, gothic style often embellished with skulls, music and flowing tears. Prior to graduation he has already joined the Just Us collective, received sponsorship from Derwent Pencils and created several zines and gig posters.
