Have We Just Found the Contemporary Version of Lisa Frank?

Rebecca Mills’ vector illustrations rely on simple, clean shapes alongside bright, neon-like colors. Reminding of a contemporary version of the ’90s Lisa Frank aesthetic, Mills’ illustrations will delight your inner child. “Being able to adjust colors globally is also something I really love,” she admitted in an interview with Ballpitmag. “Everything looks better when slid -5 on hue!”

With a BA in Graphic Design from the Curtin University of Technology and 12 years of experience behind her, she definitely puts her money where her mouth is. Based in Australia, her varied clients include the Perth Zoo, the State Library of Western Australia, and the University of New England.

“Once I get a brief, I sketch while split-screen researching on my iPad (normally on the couch with the terrible TV on in the background),” she explains her creative process. “Once the sketches are approved by my client, it’s color blocking time. If the brief allows, I’ll bring into PS and go nuts with homemade paint textures and brushes.”

But though Mills’ artwork is digital, through and through, she admits she highly regards traditional illustrators. “I have so much respect for those working in traditional media without the magic of undo and easy proportion/scale adjustments,” she said.
