Kerby Rosanes x Wingback

~ 2 min read

Give Kerby Rosanes some black ink and some white paper, and he’ll create for you a fantastical dreamscape full of mystery. We’ve all doodled aimlessly on a napkin before, perhaps whilst on the phone and not really thinking about what it is we’re drawing. But Rosanes has honed that humble and ubiquitous pastime of absent-mindedness into a meditative craft, using it to catapult himself to success in the world of commercial fine art. Under his deft guidance, the simple line work doodle becomes a sumptuous and detailed piece of visual theatre.

 

Kerby Rosanes Illustration

 

Before he realised his imagination needed to stretch its wings, Philippines based Kerby Rosanes had been working at a graphic design company. Eventually, he decided to focus all of his energies into his passion for illustration, but his experience as a graphic designer remains evident in the way his artwork arrests the eye with his clever use of monochrome.

Soon he was creating art for top brands. In fact, there are few corners that haven’t been made magical by Rosanes’ work. At the age of 25, he’d even published several grown-up colouring books of his creations, with bewitching titles like Animorphia and Imagimorphia. Giving readers the chance to bring his signature mythical creatures and aliens to life, not to mention to get involved in the artist’s creative process, these books have brought Rosanes’ drawings into people’s homes all around the world and brought joy to many a dedicated doodler.

Based in Richmond, Virginia, outdoor adventurist Osman Mansaray developed his talent under the tutelage of his father, who would take him to parks and show him how to draw trees and birds from a young age. While his work has retained a childlike sense of wonder at the natural world over the years, his skill has surely matured into that of a well-practiced craftsman.
