Muted colours and simple, precise shapes by illustrator Naftali Beder

Naftali Beder is an illustrator living in New York who loves to use muted colours and simple, precise shapes.

He typically starts in pencil, slowly building up value with crosshatching, and then layering colour digitally. The results speak for themselves. And his work has been published in newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and PLANSPONSOR. It has also received recognition from The Society of Illustrators and American Illustration.
