The Stylish Work from Barnaby Ward

Barbany Ward, aka somefield, is an artist that lives in Barbados (yeap, a paradise) and has some pretty stylish and unique pieces to show. His artworks are just great. His style, the color's combinations, the characters, the atmosphere, everything matches perfectly. Barnaby ward has a wife, some cats, and a website. He lives on a small island and spends far too much money on gas and too little time at the beach. He works primarily on a computer as he finds this to be the neatest, easiest and least stressful way to draw. I live and work in barbados. Somefield was developed as a blog name/art moniker that wasn't 'Barnaby Ward'. I wanted to go with something that was vague, that could refer to anything, but also had an interesting ring to it. I don't really consider the website a portfolio, as most of the drawings I've done were for personal reasons. The primary purpose was to make my drawings publicly viewable rather than trying to use it to pursue illustration work. although if work comes from it, that's good too. To put together this selection I browsed his Personal Website and his deviantART page, which I highly recommend you to check out! I really liked his work and I hope you like it too! So, let's see the images... :)

Drawings and Other Cool Creations from David Lanham

During daytime David Lanham works for the Iconfactory producing some really beautiful and unique icons. After Iconfactory he has a late shift to keep producing art, and that is when he produces really cool illustration and other creations. David is very talented, has a great sense of humor and a very good portfolio. Born and raised while computers were still young as well, I've had a fascination with both traditional and digital arts since childhood. I had the luck of learning from some amazing teachers growing up and then studied drawing and design at the University of Central Florida, graduating in 2004. Since then I've been making all sorts of icons for all sorts of software at the Iconfactory while keeping up with my personal work in the off time. Most of my work is made to be fun and enjoyable, which works out well since I have a really good time creating it. Digital and vector works are created on a Mac, using Photoshop and/or Illustrator. This post was suggested by one of our readers, tiltshift, who introduced David's work to us. You can also find some photos and works from David at his flickr page. I really recommend you to check out more pieces from David and I hope you like the selection we will show here! Enjoy. :) Digital Traditional Sketches Photography Some of his Icons

The Beautiful and Inspiring Work from Nonnetta

Lucia Carriero, or Nonnetta, is a 20 years old student from Italy with a great talent and a mind full of creativity. She likes drawings, photos, mangas, books and animes ... these are basically her world. She also has some very important and inseparable friends: a laptop, a camera and some pencils. Nonnetta's style is very inspiring and beautiful, her pieces are romantic, full of feelings and very heart warming. I saw her work in one of our daily inspiration posts and like it sooo much that I decided to get in touch with her to write this post. I will show here a selection from some pieces I found at her deviantART profile that I'm pretty sure you will also like. Oh, and I have to say that I'm in love with nonnetta's characters and style... I like to think that my drawings are made in this way. A bit of sudden inspiration, a lot of passion, lots of blank pages, some hearts, a pencil and a cute puppet. I'm behind them, but in reality my drawings are self-made. I'm aware of them only at work finished... Lucia Carriero Enjoy!!

Awesome Daily Doodles by Chris Piascik

I've been a big fan of Chris's work for a while now ever since the beginning of his election doodles. He became enraged by McCain and Palin's antics and satirized it in his work. His taste for lettering and typefaces never ceases to amaze me and I always look forward to his next creations. Here I gathered some of my favorite election doodles of his, and I also included some of his post-election work towards the end. Hope you guys enjoy them as much I do! Almost a year ago I decided to start drawing everyday. I went out and bought a shiny new moleskine notebook and some brand new sharpies to keep myself motivated. As soon I finished my first drawing I snapped a photo and posted it on my blog. At first I was hesitant to call them "Daily Drawings" as I didn't want to start something I couldn't keep up with (see webcomics I tried to make when I was in Art School). Early on I started drawing type and text as a necessity because I was struggling to come up with things to draw. At the beginning of the year I became consumed with the Presidential election. I spent countless hours listening to the news and reading articles. This series of drawings documents my account of the 2008 Presidential election. As always, if you have any images that you took or maybe some cool pictures you've come across and you'd like to share with us, please drop me a line on Twitter and/or Facebook. I'd love to hear from you! 2008 Election Misc.
