The Musically Inspired Work of Pascal Blanchet

Tuesday 02.14.2012 , Posted by

The illustration work of Pascal Blanchet may trick you into thinking it was created in the 1960s with its effortless vintage style. Blanchet is a graphic novelist and illustrator born in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec. His work is reminiscent of mid-century jazz record cover art, which he says is a source of inspiration from his childhood. His work is compositionally beautiful, and each piece tends to use strong shapes and colors with hints of texture that add just the right amount of depth and detail to his work. Blanchet is a very versatile illustrator because he can work in perspective, add wonderful lighting, or create something flat and still be interesting. [Read more...]

The bright, colorfully, poppy, peculiar work of one artist is a fresh take on an old style. Designer, Roman Klonek creates his artwork with woodcut prints that pay homage to polish cartoons and history in the country’s propaganda style. He keeps to the traditional method and principles of the medium, but makes his own version of the end art. His woodcut posters are like stepping into a polish cartoon world, which the artist himself describes as a “bizarre balancing act between propaganda, folklore, and pop.” [Read more...]

One of the greatest things about design is that people are constantly coming up with new and creative ways to solve problems, display information or convey a message in a better way. Paul Marcinkowski (AKA Kaplon) is the designer behind this tattoo infographic which he made for a class project at the Academy Of Fine Arts in Łódź, Poland. While poorly made infographics have been called the ‘plague’ of the internet, it’s great to see an artist sink their teeth into the medium and create something truly original. [Read more...]

José Luis Ágreda’s Illustrations in Real Space

Wednesday 01.04.2012 , Posted by

What first started off as experiments to speed up concept illustration, resulted in surreal, yet familiar environments. The illustrations, at first, don’t seem like paper collage work at all, because the illustrated characters seem to blend in so well with the photographic environments. Once you do realize that it is a collage, it still doesn’t feel out of place that these wonderfully illustrated characters are interacting in these photographs of mid-century rooms. [Read more...]
