He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Owen Freeman
Illustrator and designer Owen Freeman’s work blends a graphic sensibility and strongly geometric compositions with touches of texture and linear variety that gives his images a lively sense of energy.

He uses contrasting organic and architectural shapes, areas of color within almost monochromatic compositions and angular divisions of the image area to lead the eye and focus the work.

Freeman’s clients include The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Washington Post, Harper Collins, The Atlantic, Scholastic Books, New York Magazine, Out, and The Boston Globe.

His website includes a section of sketches in addition to this illustration portfolio. He also has a blog in which he posts preliminary sketches and other work stages as well as images of the final work in place in the publications.

There is an interview with Freeman on The Design View.

    I love this style. I remember seeing Hanukas work five years ago and it stopped me in my tracks.
