Xabier Collette has a brilliant imagination especially when it comes to fantasy and creating magical worlds. I love his take on Alice in Wonderland and his other mystical creatures! Enjoy!
Every now and then there is an illustrator that blows you away and for me Sam Weber is one of those. We have posted Sam Weber before a long time ago – middle of last year. His new work is fantastic. I find them deeply physiological which make his illustrations absolutely captivating. Definatly worth adding to our Illustration Blog.
He has done a wide range of editorial as well as book illustrations. He was born in Alaska but has since moved to New York and lives there with his wife.
I hope you enjoy this selection:
All I can say is:
true attention to detail + brilliant observation + experienced drawing skills + Korean blood + the love for teaching + odd little characters bubbling to tell a story + an impressive cliental + an imaginative mind + beautiful use of soft colours + a love for fishing = Bill Carmen. Genuinely beautiful work.
Psychedelic candy-coated colour madness- fun fun fun I say!
Japanese artist d’Holbachie Yoko is a master at creating rich, multicoloured and stimulating worlds populated by decorative, playful, cute and yet mysterious and manic creatures. With these digital artworks, Yoko manages to use colour intensely, rousing the eye of the viewer without overdoing the viewers experience.
And her whimsical creatures?
d’Holbachie Yoko expresses her work as follows: “Animals, insects, fish, and toys… These things used to be close to me when I was a child. I like to take these in my design. Maybe it is because my childhood memory is vivid, or I am still childish. I love long tentacle-like shapes with stripes or dappled patterns, such as octopus tentacles. They look as if they are presenting something gently, or as if they are looking for something.”
Enjoy the journey into one bold, playful universe of colour.
I am very excited to finally post the work of this brilliantly talented local artist; from my very own beautiful, South Africa. I have been following this illustrator for the past two years and am a big big fan. At the crazy young age of 24 Louis Minnaar creates illustrations that are not only expertly executed but portray an imagination like no other. A darkness runs through Minnaar’s mysterious worlds of human eyed birds, beaked flowers and disjointed figures. Louis’ highly conceptual approach can be seen in an illustration he created for the South African pop culture magazine “One Small Seed”. Louis explains, “The guy in the seed is chasing his own tail. He is searching for truth in the world and does not find it because ultimately, without God, he is alone.”
