This week’s Altpick Member Round-Up featured 3 brilliant artists: illustrators Angela Martini and Kevin Hauff and photographer Jim Fiscus.
Illustrator Angela MartiniAngela Martini always knew she wanted to be an artist, just not the starving kind, so she decided to be an illustrator when she grew up. So far her plan has worked out rather well. After graduating with a BFA in Illustration from The Fashion Institute of Technology, she worked as a fashion illustrator, a coat check girl, a web designer, and a character creator for a design firm. Now she works from home as a freelance illustrator creating whimsical artwork for the teen and tween crowd. She’s illustrated several books for American Girl and numerous books for Scholastic, Penguin, Simon & Schuster and Random House, and many others.

Jim Fiscus is a visual storyteller who builds his narratives using conceptual photography, his unusually vivid imagination, and a strict dedication to delivering the greatest number of options with the least amount of fuss. “I would describe my work as a series of environmental portraits,” he says. “I’m lucky in that I get to create most of the environments. The goal is to tell a complete story within one frame.”
