Break Dancers: Illustrating Motion

Tuesday 10.02.2012 , Posted by

These brilliant break dancer illustrations will make any designer/illustrator want to bust a move. Created by French artist Florian Nicolle (aka Neo), each sketch like drawing carries with it the spirit of fast movements accurately performed. Seemingly to emphasize this effect, Neo has included Cartesian-like coordinate systems with swooping arrows and jotted notes about jump heights. It’s as if these were meant to show us how to perform these challenging moves. [Read more…]

A Body of Gorgeous Illustration

Friday 09.14.2012 , Posted by

Here we bring you the work of one impressive and prolific artist. His work, featured in periodicals far and wide, spans a range of subjects not often seen from one artist – from architecture and animals, to sports and romance, his work is all done with a delicious signature illustration style. The artist we speak of is Richard Wilkinson, and his art, regardless of subject matter, has a look which speaks to the emotional sensibilities, often with a surreal quality which is hard to quickly put a finger on. Each of his images seems to tell a story, often a poignant one which crosses the boundary between reality and a vivid imagination. [Read more…]

Gloriously Detailed Hand Lettering with Pen and Pencil

Thursday 09.13.2012 , Posted by

With the hand of a classic sign artist and the detail of a watchmaker, Stockholm based artist Martin Schmetzer makes hand drawn lettering with an addictive quality. His works are created using just his hand, a pencil or a pen and a lot of practiced skill. Many of his works look like they’ve sprung out of the victorian age, perhaps off labels advertising a locally brewed beer… or perhaps some snake oil. [Read more…]

Subtly Subliminal: Clever Illustrations by Sachin Teng

Tuesday 09.04.2012 , Posted by

Crossing the line between the analog and digital era, artist Sachin Teng makes illustrations which tease the mind with creativity and subtle commentary on the world we inhabit. His works carry a heavy influence of gaming and comic love, creating fantasies which jump handily between the worlds of fantasy and reality. These combined dualities of analog/digital – fantasy/reality lend themselves well to his art, which often conveys a surprising message hidden under its attractive surface. As he puts it, “art is the original subliminal message.” [Read more…]

Beautiful Art Drawn on Disposable Cups

Wednesday 08.29.2012 , Posted by

We’ve all written our names on styrofoam cups before, and maybe even doodled a bit… but what about creating full-fledged art on the tiny cups? Malaysian artist Cheeming Boey takes the lightweight objects and illustrates exceptional scenes on their round surface, only revealing their full story as you turn the cup and see it from all angles.

Triangulation: Angular Celebrities Drawn with a Pen

Monday 08.20.2012 , Posted by

Like a web of cross-hatching gone wild, 20-year old English artist Josh Bryan creates fantastically cool celebrity portraits using just a black pen. That’s right, this isn’t computer illustrated work. His portraits, which he appropriately calls Triangulations, see well-known people – like Marilyn Monroe, Helena Bonham Carter, Johnny Knoxville and even Albert Einstein – represented using his linear, web-like style.

Walking Shadows of Rainbow Collage

Tuesday 07.10.2012 , Posted by

Shadows simplify the world around us in extremely beautiful ways. These silhouettes of blocked light show us the presence of an object, revealing only slight details about what it could be, but often creating something with even more character than the object casting it. There is something powerful in the simplified outlines of objects… and designer Jason Ratliff knows this well. [Read more…]

Ink on Skin: Intricate Pen Drawings on Faces

Monday 07.09.2012 , Posted by

What would it look like to have your physical and mental scars in full view to the world? Maybe it would look something like these face drawings by artist Pinpin Co. Working closely with her subjects, she often spends over 5 hours drawing intricately on their faces and striving to bring out the deeper aspects of their inner and outer landscapes. The results of her work, created with a fine 0.38mm gel ink pen, are often beautiful and sometimes a bit disturbing. [Read more…]
