Illustration Inspiration: A series of illustrative work to inspirit your week

Since our weekly curated UI/UX interactions series are going well, we decided to give it a try with illustrations. Instead of focusing on one specific medium for illustrations like a print design for example. We will surf and look for great pieces across more platforms from books, print, web, applications and more. We will mix it all from static, dynamic and even live animations, this might be a great series to bookmark! For this week, let's go in different directions and see how this will boost your creativity! In this collection we are featuring the illustrative work from Dmitrii Kharchenko, Leo Natsume, Igor Kozak, DKNG and more.

Electrifying Digital Art for Rock in Rio Music Festival

Electrifying Digital Art for Rock in Rio Music Festival

Raphael FS shared a quite awesome digital art project on his Behance profile. It's a project for the Rock in Rio festival, which is a super popular music event that started in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Raphael was in charge of doing post-production for one of the artworks provided by the agency Estúdio Ícone. He mentions that he started with that one but ended up recreating all of them to give a new look for the campaign. It's a quite awesome set of artwork, it brings me back the early 2000s when I was really into light effects and creating things like that in Photoshop. Of course this is way better than anything I could have made. I also recommend you to check out Raphael's full portfolio. He is a Brazilian designer and digital artist based in Rio de Janeiro with some beautiful work. For more information visit: http://www.raphaelfs.com/ Digital Art

Eerie Illustration Work for A Separate Reality

Eerie Illustration Work for A Separate Reality

We have featured Alex Andreyev and his amazing and surrealist work so many times here on Abduzeedo. It's pretty easy to keep featuring him, he is always delivering some incredible illustration work. What I love the most is just how introspective this artworks make me feel. The title of the series explain that quite well, A Separate Reality, 17th edition. Looks like we are 16 posts behind but that's okay, check out the illustration set after the break and let us know what you think via Twitter and Facebook. It sounds paradoxical but digital art attracts me because it is free of technological influence. While in traditional arts technologies dramatically limit the artist – his ability to stylize works in graphics or extremely time consuming process of paint drying, in digital painting I sit in front of a screen, grab the stylus and see the result immediately. - Alexey Andreev Alexey Andreev is a Russian artist based Saint-Petersburg.

Digital Art and Distorted Perspectives by Aeforia

Digital Art and Distorted Perspectives by Aeforia

It's amazing how some styles and trends come and go. I remember in the 80s and early 90s when digital arts and CGI were at their infancy and one of the common themes were these surrealistic environments with 3D representations of people, most of the time with metallic or chrome look. It was all about that and then it evolved to something less futuristic, more graphical and dirtier. Probably heavily inspired by the movie titles of S7VEN, if you can remember that. Anyways, I have seen more and more people playing with 3D tools and creating images that bring back that nostalgia feeling I mentioned before. Aeforia, a digital artist I feature on this post illustrates that quite well with the digital art work below.  By focusing on different perceptions of the world that we live in... Aeforia is a digital artist, graphic designer and photographer based in Montreal, Canada. His work is inspired by nature surrounding him, space, geometry and distorted perspectives. "By focusing on different perceptions of the world that we live in, I hope that the viewer can be pulled in the surreal sceneries I create." - he mentions on his Behace page.  For more information make sure to check out http://www.aeforiadesign.com/ Digital art
