Every illustrator will have a favourite arrow they use or have used in their work. They’ll have a few nice little ones they pull out of the armoury when called for. They’re every illustrators companion although you try to avoid using them really, as they can sometimes be seen as a bit of a shortcut past actual concepts… For me, the all time best use of an arrow was in a logo designed by Lindon Leader. In a sublime use of negative space and with a bit of pulling and pushing it was neatly nuzzled¬†into place in the logo above.

    I don’t have an arrow… does that mean I’m not really an illustrator??

    You should find your arrow, although you dont really need arrows, your too good for arrows. there are 2 on your site though… bet theres loads on mine…
    the joker was great, i thought it’d just be a 2 or a 9, if lucky a picture card, but the joker, one in 54 chance of being there I reckon…
