San Francisco-based Peter Cassell has collaborated closely with one of our illustrators, Filip Yip (he’s part of the “& Co.” of Filip Yip & Co.) for years on branding, character, technical illustration, infographic and motion projects. Pete does it all, but his real brilliance comes through in his storytelling work and, especially, in his caricatures. As you can see in these recent samples, his style is engagingly spontaneous and painterly, but also stunningly true to the soul of his subjects. Also shown here are three of Pete’s storytelling pieces that were included in the prestigious Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles annual show. By the way, did you ever wonder how caricatures got their name? If you’re curious, write back, and I’ll send you Pete and Filip’s promo piece that reveals all.
