The Art of James Gilleard
29 November, 2016
James Gilleard is a freelance illustrator and animator from London, but he’s currently residing in Japan. He’s worked on a number of big and small projects, perfecting his minimalistic, which some experts define as modern surrealism. It’s kind of both pixel art and digital art with a pinch of Bauhaus influences. Looks very cool.






Most recently he put additional emphasis on architecture and landscape designs. James also creates illustrations for magazines, movie posters and playing a lot of No Mans Sky. This game inspired him to do a lot of interesting abstract projects.






James Gilleard creates very minimalistic and yet detailed 2d landscapes.


“Images are usually based on photo reference. This one in particular is a few photos put together – one of a beach and one of a house and one of a mountain. I did no prep with this one – just straight to final! I wasn’t too fussed about the results with this image and a few I did around the same time, I just wanted to enjoy the process. Usually, when I do that it ends up better than commercial work, with all the revisions and feedback.” – James Gilleard (link)
