Jui Talukder - CT, United States based illustrator

Jui Talukder is a Connecticut-based illustrator and animator with a style that’s warm, whimsical and appealing – the perfect starting point for creating a captivating narrative. She also specialises in illustrating environments, characters, concepts and storyboards for animated films and commercials.
The award-winning short The Dumb Elephant is what put Jui on the map, and the Singapore-born artist has worked for some of the world’s biggest broadcast brands. She loves watching stand-up comedy, and there’s often a touch of humour in her work. Jui is also inspired by the hustle and bustle of New York’s cafes, restaurants and subways, as well as the architecture of the city. After four years studying architecture at the National University of Singapore, Jui worked for an architectural practice. Then she moved to New York to take an MFA in Computer Art at the School of Visual Arts.

Approach

After sketching her basic concepts on paper and scanning them in, Jui’s process is mainly digital. Colours are added in Photoshop, and she uses natural media brushes and pens to give her work a hand-painted feel.

Style

Jui’s style is reminiscent of a high-quality graphic novel. Whimsical, atmospheric and colourful, dramatic lighting and warm colour palettes make her work lifelike and approachable. She adds a larger than life quality wherever impact is required.

Awards

2017 Taiwan International Student Design Awards – International Prize

Farhana's talent is self-evident by simply gazing through her portfolio. What one cannot see is her professionalism, ability to clarify and advance inspired conversations. She does well taking direction, notes and suggestions, while fostering a collaborative, creative "work" experience. She has a powerful imagination, nuance for tone and an eye for painstaking detail. Conceptually, she can take words and/or (example) images and transform them into her own exciting and emotional illustrations. Her style can be whimsical and fun, but also dark and powerful. I've received many compliments on her illustrations (book covers, in my case). Not only do the illustrations simply elevate the book as a product (further differentiating it in a competitive market), but it also helps my readers envision the world of my story and works to keep them living within it. With her illustrations gracing the covers of my book, a strong and imaginative impression is quickly made on any potential reader, to her credit. It's been a fun journey working with her and I'm that much more proud to share my story with the world.

I collaborated with Farhana on a picture book that was mostly wordless at its conception, and therefore rather vague in its details. Farhana brought great concepts to the planning phase that became integral parts of the design of the final book. Her vivid illustrations captured my imagined world and more, and the ultimate product was gorgeous. The steps along the way with roughs and samples were easy and she was very responsive to my comments. I’d definitely work with her again.
