Venus Libido joins Illo Agency!
We are super excited to announce our latest artist signing, Venus Libido! Venus creates naive yet darkly humorous editorial illustrations to document socital commentaries and life as a millennial. With a huge online following, it's clearly not just us that are fans of her bold and quirky twist on commercial illustration.
Our illustration agents caught up with her at the start of the month - keep reading to get to know the artist behind the artwork ...
Q: Hey, Venus! Your work is distinctive and instantly recognisable as your own. Who are some of your artistic inspirations?
A: There are hundreds of people that inspire me daily. But to name a few, Natalie Bryne, Pot Ya Tits Away Luv, 100 Women I Know, Laura Callaghan, Theresa Baxter and Alex Jenkins.
Q: Some of our favourites, too! Try and describe your style, in your own words ...
A: Darkly poppy cartoons that depict my own difficult moments.
Q: When you're not illustrating, what do you get up to in your spare time?
A: I take my dog out for walks, resist the urge to buy more plants, hang with drinks, drink and lot of wine and eat a lot of food!
Q: Amen to that! What is your favourite thing to get stuck into and illustrate?
A: Women and their beautiful bodies.
Q: And finally ... why did you want to sign with Illo?
A: I think as an artist in illustration, it's important to have a support network. Having people around who can help promote and spread awareness of your work is really important.
at Illo Agency, we pride ourselves in representing a collation of global illustrators, distinctly diverse in creativity and uniquely celebrates by like-minded clients across a range of commercial markets.
