Jacqui Oakley

9 Jun


Jacqui Oakley is a Toronto, Canada-based illustrator who’s style is incredibly beautiful and colorful. She specializes in hand-lettering and portraiture and has a thing for patterns and textures. Her work has a wonderful personality and is quite unique and makes my eyes feel like they are on vacation on a tropical island. A lot of illustrators have moved on to using the computer almost exclusively, but not Jacqui. She says she “typically inks her work and paints with good old-fashioned oil or acrylic and elbow grease.” She does admit to occasionally doing the color (or colour) work digitally.

Jacqui recently worked with the designers from Poly for the album art for an Ontario-based band Two Crown King. The center piece of the album art is an absolutely stunning long-maned lion. Just. Plain. Amazing.

See more of Jacqui’s work on dribbble. Thanks for the inspiration!
