Diana Sudyka is a Chicago-based illustrator who works in a broad range of areas from editorials, books, and music-album artwork to gig posters. Her style is incredibly unique – we would say that it’s a bit darker than other animal arts that we’ve featured. There is a lot of contrast, black elements and sketchy details in her work. Some look like they were inspired by tradition botanical paintings although, at the same time, they have a cute but edgy feel to them. Sudyka’s art comes together with beautiful, modern typography to complete the edgy, whimsical look.
She has worked on artwork for many music albums, including Andrew Bird, St. Vincent, The Black Keys, Iron & Wine, The Decemberists, and Modest Mouse. She has illustrated several volumes of the award-winning children’s books “The Mysterious Benedict Society” by Trenton Lee Stewart, and more recently featured in Gigposters Volume 1: Rock Show Art of the 21st Century (Quirk Books), Illustrators Unlimited The Essence of Contemporary Illustration (Gestalten Press), and New Ornamental Type by Steven Heller and Gail Anderson. When she is not working in her studio she volunteers at the Field Museum of Natural History.
