Jessica Fimbel Willis is an exciting graphic artist from Boston, USA. Graduating with a BFA in graphic design from Keene State University, she specialises in calligraphed illustrations featuring her distinctly sweet, hand drawn lettering. Dynamic, and with an emphasis on line, Jessica's images are optimistic and eye catching as she carefully transcribes a witty phrase and packs it in with charming bijou illustrations.
Her interest in line drawing is clear to see in the shopfronts and buildings Jessica chooses. Illustrating all of her favourite restaurants, bookshops and breweries, she picks out the familiar details of the building and creates an instantly recognisable image that strikes at the hearts and appetites of it's customers.
Having lived in NYC for a time, she remembers the places where she felt a sense of community, places that fulfilled a need or hunger. The Strand bookstore provides literary nourishment for those lucky enough to be in Greenwich Village with room for another book in their bag. Her piece on 'NYC Food' informs us where to find nourishment of a more substantial kind, the illustration itself an intricate clash of enthusiastic reviews and memories of mouthwatering sandwiches.
