Shintaro Ohata born in Hiroshima, 1975 is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy day and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of 2-D and 3-D world.

Daniel James Diggle is an illustrator and designer based in London. He is a member of the Keystone Design Union and the KDU Core. He also runs the illustration collaboration site Wolfbite together with fellow illustrator Jessica Allan.“With a love for type, structures and organic forms, I work from pencil to pen creating my pieces. Part inspired by traditional woodcuts and Victorian era engraving, I strive to develop a level of craft in my illustrations.”For most of his illustration work he uses pointilism and stippling. In an interview on ocularharmony, he describes his creative process:“Most of my character work is analogue to start. Pencil sketches first, then clean inked pen lines. After that the image is scanned in and colouring added via Photoshop and the like. If I ever choose to further my character illustrations then working more digitally would probably be better; using illustrator to ‘ink’ the sketches would make the final image far more flexibe than a resolution static scan.”
