Alphabet Illustrations

Alphabet Illustrations

We posted about the work of Flavio Montiel a few times here on ABDZ and he always keep surprising us. I saw that he has been doing a daily series on Dribbble of beautiful compositions of the alphabet letters. He is already on the letter M so we decided that it should be featured here on ABDZ Flavio Montiel, is an Art Director and 3D Artist based in São Paulo, Brazil. After 4 years working as an Art Director for Harley-Davidson, he quit his job and started his own studio called Bodi Multimedia, which is more focused on web. It was around that time he realized that he couldn’t hold back his love for illustration anymore and started to work as freelance illustrator as well. 3D for me was always more like a hobby and i’ve been learning it for about 10 years. Even though i’ve worked for a few agencies and a very wide range of clients as a Designer and Art Director, and even as a freelancer developer, 3D was always with me on those moments when you want to create something cool from the top of your head, without the pressure of it being a paid job, nothing more.

Moody Illustrations by Elicia Edijanto

Moody Illustrations by Elicia Edijanto

Since starting Abduzeedo I've come across an infinite number of inspiring illustrations varying in style. Colorful, 80s, 90s, 3D, you name it and we've probably published it and continue to find inspiration from incredible artists around the globe. To date, I have to say that the work that Elicia Edijanto shared on his Behance profile really deserves to be at the top of my list. It reminds me of the game Limbo because of the mood and aesthetics, however Elicia's work has far more texture and personality. One of the things that make the work shine in my opinion is the mix of techniques, drawing and painting with just some brush splatters. Add to that, an interesting combination of subjects, like the friendship of a boy and a bear or other animals and you have a beautiful and moody set of illustrations.

Eerie Illustraitons by Adrian Fernandez

Eerie Illustrations by Adrian Fernandez

When it comes to illustrations there are things that really catch my attention, one of them is when they have a sort of eerie mystery - almost like making me think about existence and solitude. Atmos, a project by Adrian Fernandez captures that quite well, perhaps, due to the lonely character present in all compositions or the dark tone. The truth is, they are quite inspiring. Adrian Fernandez is a Graphic Designer & Illustrator from Nuremberg, Germany. He is passionate about Graphic Design, Branding, Illustration, Editorial Design and Typography. He also has just recently graduated from university and is freelancing, currently working for a band called Be My Island and the App Themeboard.

Incredible Illustrations by Beeple

Incredible Illustrations by Beeple

Commitment is a key factor of the learning process and to evolve in whatever you are doing. I believe there's only way to commit to something, it's to do it repeatedly until it becomes natural. Focus, learn, repeat. Mike Winkelmann, also known as Beeple has been doing that everyday for the past 8 years. He has been creating an artwork every single day and the result is nothing short of amazing. Beeple is Mike Winkelmann, a graphic designer from Appleton, Wisconsin, USA. His short films have screened at onedotzero, Prix Ars Electronica, the Sydney Biennale, Ann Arbor Film Festival and many others. He has also released a series of Creative Commons live visuals that have been used by electronic acts such as deadmau5, Taio Cruz, Tiësto, Amon Tobin, Wolfgang Gartner, Flying Lotus and many others. He currently releases work on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder imprint. I'm on my eighth consecutive year of everydays (haven't missed a day!) and this year I'll be doing a render everyday using Cinema 4D and mostly Octane, but will also be incorporating Houdini, Worldmachine, 3DCoat, Daz3D, Fusion360, Moi3D and more!!! :) For more information, check out http://www.beeple-crap.com/

Colorful Illustrations of Van Orton Design

Colorful Illustrations of Van Orton Design

Over the course of 9 years we've posted countless posts and have had the chance to discover incredible designers, illustrators and enthusiasts. To my own surprise we have yet to feature Van Orton Design. We posted one of his projects 2 years ago, but not featuring the man himself which I'd say was an oversight we are rectifying immediately. Van's illustrations are simply awesome, colorful, fresh and inspiring. It reminds me a little bit of the work of Romero Britto, a Brazilian artist known for colorful paintings. The main difference is that Van's is a bit more geometric and explores pop themes like movies, rock bands and other pop culture subjects. It also has some resemblance with another one of my favorites, James White. Enough talk, time to check out the work for yourself. Also for more information about Van Orton Design check out http://vanortondesign.com/. Enjoy!

Playful Motion Design

Playful Motion Design

It is amazing to see how much the design community changes and with great sites to follow like Dribbble, Behance and many others we can compare the various shifts. Around 5 years ago, skeuomorphism was huge, then some ornamental typography. After that everything went vector and flat. Little by little things started getting more bold strokes, sometimes even with some depth. Now I feel that motion design is the new cool thing and in my opinion it's awesome. There are so many cool examples of little moments of delight that can be added with simple, yet playful animations. Gal Shir a product designer and art director from Tel Aviv is exploring and pushing this trend in an inspiring way. His animations are very smooth, stylish and super fun. In this post I wanted to feature some of them with you guys. For more information make sure that you visit his Dribbble profile to check out his full portfolio.

Stylish Artworks and Animations

Stylish Artworks and Animations

There are some people that are incredibly talented and there's not much to say about them, we just have to admire and work hard to get to that level one day. Dave Chenell, a Designer, Animator, Developer and co-founder of Enormo.us is one of these guys. The illustrations and little animations he shared on his Dribbble profile is simply awesome. They have a retro look, mix of the 80s with Monument Valley. For more information about Dave and to check out his full portfolio check out. http://enormo.us/
