Gerard DuBois is a freelance illustrator who has had his work published in numerous magazines. Some of the magazines he has been in are The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Times, Rolling Stones and a handful more. DuBois also illustrated for a children's book as well. He was born in France in 1968 and he studied to be a graphic designer. He ended up finding his passion with illustration and stared doing freelance work.
I love his use of color in all his work. One of my favorite pieces he did is the Sacred Space. This is the first illustration I posted. I love the high contrast in it. It is very appealing. It is very interesting that he made the sky at night so he could add some white dots which allows the piece to tie together well with the white bottom. It is very simple but intriguing. I also love the shapes. The line work in this piece is fantastic. I love how the bottom portion looks like a cut out. The line work is so clean and perfect.
His style is quite dark and eerie. He does a lot of editorials for magazines, which helps the audience analyze his work. He seems to do some surrealistic pieces as well which are enjoyable to look at. He is a great illustrator and I love his work.
