While writing last week’s post about spring vector illustrations, I realized that I haven’t talked to you about talented digital artists in a long time. So I looked up Eliane Horie, also known as Libz – a freelance illustrator, concept and visual development artist and animator that I bookmarked a while ago. She is 23, currently living in Brasil, does illustration, animation, VFX and editing and is very passionate about her work.
Glass, whether as an utility or an art material, calls for careful handling. It takes a lot of time to shape and one wrong move would mean going back to square one. But for Polish artist Marta Klonowska, beauty can be found even in the seemingly worthless shards. Deftly breaking glass is where she begins to execute her passion for forming sculptures.
Being a photographer isn’t always about shooting sunrises and butterflies. Some artists shoot the darkness of both nature and humanity. Shutterstock contributor Yaroslav Gerzhedovich beautifully conveys a spooky – even haunted – mood that leaves you captivated. Gerzhedovich achieves his darkened shades using a variety of techniques both by hand and on the computer that he says combine to form something “between surrealism and fantasy.”
I am very proud to present to you today an exclusive sneak preview of Tim Flach’s upcoming book and photography exhibition called More Than Human that will be held at Osborne Samuel Gallery in London. I stumbled upon Tim’s work one day and was absolutely blown away by his one-of-a-kind, heartwarming animal portraits. Let’s take a look at Flach’s discourse on photography, his aim as an artist and a short yet enticing biography.
I thought it would be nice to change things up a bit in our “Artist of the Week” section – after stumbling upon an awesome website called Science to the Power of Art. It was made by Zachary Copfer – artist, microbiologist, photography enthusiast and all around creative person. He creates art from bacteria, through a process quite similar to darkroom photography.
The past few weeks have been all about raising awareness for Romania, the home country of the Pixel77 team (the people behind the entire Brainik Network, to be more exact). I’ve shown you guys some interesting facts in a “Get to Know Romania” article and my colleague Cristina recently posted a showcase of inspiring portrait photography made by 4 awesome Romanian artists that went viral. So I thought I’d put her work to the test and see if I can do the same with the artwork of the one, the only – Dan Cretu.
Today, I wanted to introduce you guys to Alberto Seveso, a graphic designer and illustrator from Italy. He is known for his unusual technique called “sperm shaping”, which basically represents mixing colorful vector with photos. He has created amazing designs for sonorous names such as Bacardi, ESPN Magazine and Playboy Magazine, has designed the packaging of Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended and is internationally appreciated for his unique artistic style.
Jeremy Kyle (also known as CMYKyles) is a graphic designer, illustrator and digital artist that I just had to introduce to you guys. He is 22, lives in Auckland, New Zealand and creates some amazing mixed media compositions. He works his magic with pencils, pens, color pencils, water colors, paints, oils, news papers, textures, digital work and some seriously expressive and powerful designs come out.
In my search for some unique design inspiration, I stumbled upon an homage to the great Irving Penn (1917-2009), American photographer internationally known for his portraits, fashion photography and still lifes. The breathtaking simplicity of his art shines through the portraits he took of his illustrious creative contemporaries, such as Alfred Hitchcock, Marlene Dietrich, Pablo Picasso, Al Pacino and more.
The purpose of this article is to expose you guys to the amazing artwork of illustrator Ricardo Martinez Ortega. Martinez’ style incorporates caricature, conceptual, realism, whimsical, black and white and his targeted subjects are animals, celebrities, editorial, landscape, medical, political, people, portrait, scientific, wildlife and environmental and his artworks speak volumes.
