Urban Comics

Categories: Vector Art, Inspiration

The artworks by Chicago based illustrator David Cuesta blur the line between alternative comics, graffiti and vector art. His illustrations transport you to an urban fantasy world full of mad professors, love snipers and street kings – a healthy dose of street attitude and humor added.

“Keep It Simple Stupid” is a phrase David Cuesta employs in several of his funky vector illustrations, and his style fits this statement perfectly: no nonsense and honest observations. Inspired by human characters, music and street culture, Cuesta’s portfolio contains pen and ink illustrations, brown paper sketches, acrylic paintings, typography, logo design, visual identity work and lots of vector cartoons. Here you can admire some of Cuesta’s graphic narratives, comic characters in the tradition of Brendan McCarthy and Jamie Hewlett, a tribute to legendary graffiti artist Case II and poster artworks for the bands LesCrooks and Moog Glove.
