ILLUSTRATOR: SARAH BUTLER AKA SKJUL

Sarah Butler is a 20 year old illustrator studying at london college of communication. With a Dutch and  South african heritage and being brought up on the Isle of Man she has many cultural experiences, passions and interests. After studying foundation in art at Bournemouth she has recently moved to London to continue her passion of illustration. Originally after discovering Sarah a few years ago on Instagram, her drawings were of the more fine art style, pencil illustrations of models and over the years she has progressed to a wonderfully unique style of illustration and has recently began to experiment with graphics. With her favourite colour baby pink being coherent throughout a lot of her drawings, her unusual style features a lot of print screening, distorting of shapes, lines and squiggles all to form often grotesque images of people. Interestingly as someone passionate about music she incorporates restructured vinyl records into her art with a great effect.

One of my favourite pieces of work by Sarah is her recent work on politicians. She designed two pieces surrounding the idea of the daily mail and the sun readers and the idea of politicians lying to us through the media. One is called “take what they say with a pinch of salt” and the other “don’t be spoon-fed trash media”. You can find these featured below.

Speaking of the future, Sarah has said that she would love to design album covers and work with producers on this. Below is her own illustration work as a redesign for Murlo’s – Last Dance EP.
