Karate Kid is a classic from the 80s, with memorable passages like the training Karate by polishing cars, or catching flies with chopsticks. Besides that there was Cobra Kai and their sensei. So many memories and inspirations from that beautiful decade. PJ McQuade captured that amazingly well in his illustration titled The Karate Kid: Final Fight. Wax On, Wax Off. Show me paint the fence. Mercy is for the weak. What is the problem Mr. Lawrence? I want him out of commission. Sweep the Leg. Finish him! You're all right, LaRusso! The Karate Kid is a classic.
Super Stylish Illustrations by Justin Mezzell
We are fan of vector illustrations, especially because of the clean lines and sometimes geometric shapes. Lately we've been noticing more and more designers experimenting with vectors mixed with textures. The cool thing about this is that it gives an incredible style to the illustrations, and when you add to that some super creative ideas you will probably have something similar to the work of Justin Mezzell.
I am now a huge fan of Justin, his work is nothing less than amazing. It brings me back some sort of this retro/futuristic vibe. Besides that his color palettes are always beautiful. To illustrate that we selected some of our favorite Justin's illustrations.
