An unaware bystander might read the title an ask what's the big deal of doodles. Well, when the artist behind a doodle is a very talented person, then you take doodling to a new level. It becomes doodle art, and this is amazing. I'm amazed by the level of precision @Visothkakvei has... you may visit his Instagram to see some of the videos he publishes, and I tell you, this guy draws as if he was a printer, most time without even a sketch underneath.

Gradient Exploration with Radial Series

Let's kickstart this week with a series of gradient exploration by Yuliya Shumilina, a Miami-based designer. I love these!

Especially the lighting, it's just gradients but it does have a sense of depth across. This can definitely go into abstract art, what do you guys think?

Beautiful Graphic Design Project Inspired by The Little Prince

Graphic Design: Paper Craft Project Inspired by The Little Prince

Le Petit Prince is a graphic design project created and shared by Rafa Miqueleto. It was a commissioned work done inspired by The Little Prince movie. One of the coolest things about this project is the tools and materials used. It's a paper craft full of style. The details and the dimensionality added by layers of papers and folds is just beautiful. In addition to that, and the most amazing in my opinion, is the irregularities of the cuts. I have tried to do this type of work in Illustration and Photoshop, however it always end up looking to uniform or computer generated. Nothing can beat the real deal, it's almost a homage to graphic design projects from a different era, an era without computers. Rafa Miqueleto is a graphic designer and illustrator from Sao Paulo, Brazil. He has a super strong portfolio with more amazing projects like this one. I highly recommend you to check it out at http://cargocollective.com/miqueleto Graphic design and paper craft Making Of

Fauxsaics: a Series of Typographic Mosaic Illustrations

Fauxsaics: a Series of Typographic Mosaic Illustrations

We are sharing a typographic series that just makes you go Wow! just by its splendid concept and even more about the execution. Have you ever took a picture of a mosaic tile composition and try to position the shot with your shoes? I know I did! That's basically the concept behind Fauxsaics , a series of typographic mosaic illustrations designed by New York-based designer Nicholas Misani. What I love about this series is not only there's a good amount of work in the typography, there's also even more details to the mosaic as well. These are the kind of projects we love seeing on Abduzeedo! Behind this fun series is the stunning work from Nicholas Misani who is a designer based in New York, USA. Passionate about typography and calligraphy; he's also working at Louise Fili Ltd as a senior designer. A place where he gets and as I quote: "create quintessentially Italian, historically-inspired design and lettering every day". Fauxsaics are lettering-based, mosaic illustrations where the form is dictated by the limitations of traditional mosaic technique.

The Contemplative Artworks of Elicia Edijanto

The Contemplative Artworks of Elicia Edijanto

One thing I love about art is that an illustration is like a window into an artist's mind, soul, or whatever you might call it. Some artworks and paintings are super happy, with bright, colorful details right at your face. Some others express deep meaning through fewer elements and simpler colors. Elicia Edijanto is one of those artists that tell us a lot through her artworks. From Jakarta, Indonesia, she comes up with these beautiful illustrations that are so contemplative that it might reach the deepest corner of one's soul and have an effect on it. This is the kind of art that makes you trip, wonder, dream, all at once, wherever you are. Something very powerful indeed... well, some might say that art is a weapon of mass destruction. Destruction of an ugly, lifeless world. Let there be art, let there be more of Elicia's beautiful mind. Elicia's artworks For more of Elicia's artworks, please visit her personal website, Instagram or portfolio at Behance! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. ;)
