Surreal Shadowy Renderings
Grant Coghill Illustrates Peculiar Scenes with Dark & Bizarre Subjects

By: Jason Soy (Rockstar) May 5, 12

Often times, people associate whimsical imagery with vibrant and exotic colors, but that’s not entirely the case with these Grant Coghill illustrations. Sure, there are splashes of prismatic hues in his wildly bizarre visuals, but he contrasts that by heavily using black wherever he can. Many of his subjects, colored charcoal, resemble Indonesian shadow puppets. This abstract contrast gives his work a kind of unexpected magnetism that stimulates both the eyes and the mind.

Grant Coghill’s idiosyncratic style is no doubt what caught the attention of some of his impressive client list, which includes Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Red Bull Creative, Popular Mechanics Magazine and much more. He currently works as a freelancer and specializes in graphic design and illustration. His portfolio is filled with eclectic imagery, including one pastel-colored portrait of the Adventure Time crew.
