The confusion behind Steven Pascoe’s illustrations

A taste that recalls the cartoons of the 90s as Beavis and Butt-head but also the underground paper communication of punks and skaters of the same years. These are just some of the references that inspire the work of Steven Pascoe, illustrator and motion designer based in England.
Specializing in illustration and 2D loops, Pascoe’s characters are placed in chaotic contexts, enriched with many different objects, placed more for the balance of the composition rather than for the meaning they have. The environment and coverages of these characters drawn with sharp, broken lines is distorted then by a wide-angle perspective and overhead view of tennis players with flaming balls and gamers.
Steven Pascoe is not attached to a single character, he makes many (visible on his official website) born from a pencil sketch, which passes through the graphics tablet and finally comes alive. The attention to detail is reflected in the references to products of pop culture and fashion brands, among the artist’s favorites without a doubt Nike and Stone Island.
