Cory Godbey is an illustrator and animator based in Greenville, South Carolina whose work utilizes elegant lines, stylized drawing and deep, carefully limited color palettes to achieve wonderful effect.

He makes use of these strengths, as well as a rich imagination, in his illustrations of classic children’s stories as well as contemporary themes. I particularly enjoy his playful use of illumination and light sources.

You can see in Godbey’s work his apparent admiration for classic Golden Age illustrators like Arthur RackhamEdmund DulacJohn Bauerand Gustav Tenggren, as well as contemporary illustrators like Maurice Sendak.

The “Gallery” portion of his website redirects to his gallery on Behance Network, where you will find sections for work in various categories. In addition Godbey maintains a blog titled late night rains.

Godbey’s clients incude Random House, HarperCollins, Marvel and The Jim Hensen Co. He has also done comics work for the Flight comics anthologies.
