Text-full Illustrations by Coqué Azcona

in Inspiration


It’s hard to describe or classify the work of Barcelona artist Coqué Azcona–and therein lies its charm. Coqué creates elegant, cartoonish compositions that consist primarily  of swooshing lines and hand-drawn  lettering, punctuated by some brilliant color contrasts. Each figure quickly dissolves as we are drawn into the bilingual collage of words and phrases it contains, and re-emerges as we assemble the scattered illustrative signposts–an eye, a moustache, a pair of squiggly legs. And then we try to decipher the meaning of it all. This is work that is both visually and conceptually alluring. Click through to see a few more Coqué Azcona creations, and then visit her blog to see more illustrations and other kinds of lettering and design work.

There is something very charming about this artist’s work. It is playful and sophisticated at the same time. The pink and white bird is lovely, as are some of the other monochromatic pieces. Her art is eyecatching and would be great as posters. The element of text in art is always such an amusing one.

These are gorgeous! I had to do a similar project in design school using nothing but type to create images.

Are they hand made illustrations or are developed in some tool like Adobe illustrator? Regardless of the answer to my above questions, these are awesome pieces of illustrations. Well-designed and beautifully managed text…
