This is an example of illustration from 2016. There is definitely a textured feel that comes from other eras and has developed into a trend in the 2000′s. This is a piece of work by Mariana Salimena from Brazil. I found her on Bechance which is an online portfolio website powered by Adobe. It’s the perfect place to find contemporary illustrators and designers. There is definitely a wider range of styles now, because of the wider range of techniques (especially since the computer was invented) and because people are less likely to follow trends, they like to develop their own style. This is particularly true for illustrators.
