Alexis Marcou is an extremely talented illustrator from Greece. Graduating from Plymouth College of Art, he currently freelances for clients like Cisco, Hewlett Packard, and Nike. While racking up thousands of view on Behance, he has caught our attention. Today we would like to dedicate this article to him.
Marcou creates traditional fine arts pieces with a slight digital touch-up. Keeping the color scheme very monotone really adds to the overall composition and lets the talent shine through. His signature style is very geometric (scroll below to see what we mean). By using a wide range of watercolor sketches and illustrations, he strives to create fine contemporary art!
More than often, he shows the planning stage images on his portfolio. You can see that a simple idea goes through numerous revisions. Things like fading, tone, light, and shade play a huge role in the process. He loves what he does and creates outstanding work! No wonder corporate companies hire him on the regular.
