Romancing Hipster Illustrations
Thomas Pitilli Renders Drawings of Lovey Dovey Pop Scenes

By: Sophia Pelka (Star) Mar 16, 12

Thomas Pitilli is a Brooklyn-based artist with a sunny and slightly surreal vision of reality. He applies his perspective to illustrations rendered through multimedia techniques. Pitilli combines hand-drawn sketches, prints and collaging with Photoshopping elements. The result is a somewhat experimental, yet intriguing. His work has been featured in a myriad of major publications, including the New York Times.

His most recent work pays homage to strange, but relevant characteristics of American culture. Most of the works have a heavy focus on narrative, following a romance or conveying heavy amounts of emotion. More memorable is Pitilli’s depiction of Black Star featuring Talib Kweli and Yasiin Bey, the legendary hip-hop group. The artist’s frequent use of sunny color palettes and strong simple lines lends the series a comic feel.
