Back to the Future Triology Box Set

Back to the Future Triology Box Set

All of us for sure know what is the Back To The Future Triology, this kind of movies were made in the 80s for the 80s. It has been risen popularity since, even after more than 30 years. I get goosebumps every time whenever I watch it (probably gonna watch it tonight). That Delorean Car has been my favourite of mine since forever. The folks over DKNG just released their work they did for Mondo to commemorate that historic date from BTTF 2 by making the 6-LP vinyl box set. Check it out!     About DKNG Studios DKNG is a creative studio based in Los Angeles, Californi.

A Geometry a Day

A Geometry a Day

We see a lot of designers doing daily personal projects, like a letter a day, or a photo a day, however I love the idea of Isabella Conticello to work on a geometry a day. She simply explored basic shapes, simple colors to create a series of very cool designs. One thing that is really cool to see is her evolution in terms of trying to come up with something. I used to do a tutorial a week and did that for over 5 years, so I appreciate the commitment of these great designers. For more information about Isabella check out her Behance page

10 Towers of the Netherlands

10 Towers of the Netherlands

Cityspaces, some of us enjoyed chasing rooftops so they snap a selfie at a crazy (and dangerous) altitude, or take a picture of our shoes at the corner view of some building. Well some others like Coen Pohl who would rather illustrate them. It's safer! We've featured his work before and it's always an interesting pleasure to see what he's up with his cityscape isometric-style of artworks. Hope you will enjoy! We often forget to look up when we walk or cycle around the city. A shame, because there are many beautiful - be it old or modern - towers in the Netherlands with great architectural details. This personal projects aims to showcase these towers in a more abstract way, where I focus purely on the shapes of these towers. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); About Coen Pohl Coen Pohl is a freelance graphic designer and illustrator based in (obviously) Amsterdam, Netherlands. We look forward to see more of his isometric artworks. For more information, check out his Behance profile https://www.behance.net/coenpohl

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. For more information make sure to check out Elicia's page at https://www.behance.net/eliciaedijanto

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!
