Illustrator and graphic designer Simon Prades (previously) delights in the surreal and dreamlike, where silhouettes of faces open portals to other places and strange visual metaphors for difficult subjects are brought vividly to life. Prades works primarily with non-digital mediums like pen and ink, using Photoshop to cleanup and occasionally animate his work for the web. The German illustrator currently freelances for some of the biggest publications around including the New York Times, The New Yorker, The Guardian, and elsewhere. Shown here is a selection of work from the last two years, but you can explore a bit more on Behance.
