Today we're gonna check the awesome work of IC4DESIGN inc., a Japanese group that comes up with the most awesome, intricate city designs you'll see around. There are so my details in their work that one would spend hours going through all of them! This is only a super brief selection of their artworks. For more of it, and a closer look at the details, please visit their portfolio at Behance! I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. ;)
The best way, and probably the only way to learn is by practicing. As my dad always said, nobody was born knowing how to do things, there's always the need to practice, learn from mistakes and evolve. Iryna Korshak gives a great example with a set of beautiful backgrounds she put together while practicing her texture skills in Photoshop. Iryna is a hands-on designer who loves seeing projects through from concept to completion. She is always looking to work with forward-thinking brands across all sectors. For more information check out https://www.behance.net/IraKorshak Some simple backgrounds I made while practicing Photoshop texture brushes. Most of them were made in few hours, inspired by different photos I found on Pinterest. Enjoy, thanks!
I'm crying here. It's like I've just looked at an eclipse... it's a beautiful thing, but it might get you blind by its power and beauty. I'm talking about the work of New York based artist Glenn Wolk. This guy comes up with the most beautiful pieces of hand painted badges and logos I've ever seen. Look at this with caution... Glenn has an out-of-this-world kind of talent. He's got a fantastic style and amazing skills to come up with such eye candy pieces. This is a truly brief selection of his artworks. For much more of it, please VISIT his portfolio at Behance or at his personal portfolio. I hope you enjoy this eclipse. Cheers! ;) This is me looking at Glenn's work.
I really enjoy seeing how well some artists illustrate environments. The lightning, the mood, the details, are all important pieces of a fine scenario, and Clement Dartigues is a talented French artist with some fine skills doing beautiful scenes of nature and more. Here you can see some of his artworks. Gotta love his style! Cartoonish and very well finished with much attention to the details! For more of his work, please visit his portfolio at ArtStation. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers! ;)
Butcher Billy, a Brazilian artist located in Curitiba, comes up with the most brilliant pulp comic book covers ever. He's got an awesome taste for 80's music and it serves as his inspiration for a series of covers. One of the best is the Cure series, as you can see below! This guy is a beast and these are only a handful of his pieces. For more of it and more 80's icons like The Smiths and others, please visit his portfolio at Behance and if you want to buy products with these artworks, visit him at Redbubble. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. ;)
The first week of 2016 is wrapping up and nothing better than some stylish illustrations to inspire our weekend ahead. Moments of the Future is a set of illustrations created by Artua and they are simply awesome. They look like concept art from the Star Wars movie or Mad Max. I only wish I could get one of those as a poster for my office. Talented artists made it almost impossible to find any secrets in fantastic world of future. Being inspired by master’s work we have decided to try ourselves in the area brand new for us. It’s a real pleasure to see how tablet’s stylus brings life to mysterious landscapes, where elephants of overseas merchants are walking along with incredible machines and where reactive drones are drifting down the streets of ancient cities.
I feel that since flat became the new trend we started to see more of the same style of work, sometimes making it impossible to decipher if they were from different illustrators. Of course there are exceptions to every rule and that's the case of the illustrations created by Tom Haugomat for the South Bank Tower. The simplicity yet unique perspective and style set the work apart from the rest. Tom Haugomat is an illustrator based in Paris, France. His work have been shown in publications like XXI, Le Monde and many others. He also works as an animated film director with Bruno Mangyoku.

We have posted about paper illustrations so many times, however it seems that there's always a new project that blows our minds and makes us feel obligated to share here on ABDZ. That's the case of the project by John Ed De Vera titled Create your Future. It's that good. What makes this project special is the depth that John was able to create by using layers of paper and folding techniques. The result is a real 3D effect with beautiful shadows and a lot of dimensionality. John Ed De Vera is a multidisciplinary designer, with a penchant for lettering, paper-cutting, and experimenting with different and new media. His philosophy of creativity has so far led to finding new ways to push and innovate his craft, unafraid of learning new things and twisting them in his very own creative way.

The past few weeks I have been posting more about editorial design, interfaces and some web design. I have been focusing my time on those subjects because it's part of my job but I never stop checking out illustrations and digital art projects for inspiration. A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon the work of Yuri Shwedoff on our Daily Inspiration. It was the artwork with the X-wing fighter. I was amazed by the style and mood of the illustration so for this post I want to feature a little bit more about Yuri's work. One of the things that really caught my attention about Yuri's work is the subject that he explores. It's an apocalyptical world of old spaceships and eclipses. It reminds me a bit of some scenes of the new Star Wars movie, mixed with a dark Mad Max. I love when I have this feeling when seeing illustrations, they really make my imagination fly.

Back in 2011 we featured for the first time the work of phenomenal artist Olly Moss. He kept doing top notch art, filled with pop culture references and awesome subjects.

Of course, these are only a handful of his latest work. For much more, please visit his Tumblr! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. ;)
Yet another week has passed us by, and very few things are as cool as a well designed, dope character. Some artists are really good in coming up with these, and here are some of you to enjoy, by Australian artist Adrian Dadich. Adrian is a super talented artist. Good love his style, which is very detailed and well finished. For more of his work, please visit his portfolio at DeviantART. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did! Cheers! ;)
Today I am changing a bit of the focus of the posts to focus strictly on the much anticipated launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Opening in theaters here in the US tomorrow, I felt compelled to celebrate the latest chapter in Star Wars history. In lieu of posting regular fan art I had to post about the work that Marko Manev posted which merges another of my passions, Noir style. The artworks are quite inspiring, simple, elegant and of course noir. Marko Manev, born 1985 in Skopje, Macedonia is a conceptual mixed-media artist, graphic designer & illustrator. He graduated in fine arts and has worked as a graphic designer in advertising. Manev has initiated and has taken part in several NGOs and cultural organizations where he worked as a lecturer and an executive director. Also, he has written and illustrated several short story comic books. Manev is an active artist both in the fine art and in the pop-culure tribute art scene. Currently he is working as a freelance designer and illustrator, creates limited edition prints and movie posters For more information about Marko's work check out http://www.markomanev.com/
It's always nice to see an artist coming up with sweet artworks, filled with nice ideas, scenarios and characters. Yu Yiming is a Chinese artist that does great pieces of art, like these below! Check it out. These are pretty awesome, with a very nice style. For more of these, please visit the artist's portfolio at ArtStation! I hope you enjoy these as much as we did! Cheers. ;)

We are getting to the end of another year, and among several posts we published on this blog there are some that stand out. Usually it's the post that was just published :) - just joking, but not completely because the images we are sharing in this post are quite inspiring. Ray Oranges, a designer and illustrator from Florence, Italy shared a project on his Behance profile that has truly beautiful vector illustrations, playing with negative space and geometric lines. The work is a series of illustration covers for Norme & Tributi MESE_Il Sole 24 Ore. For more information check out http://www.ray-oranges.com/
We really can't get enough of a good set of dope illustrations. Some artists have mastered coolness and are a very talented bunch. One of these is San Francisco based artist Ryan Putnam. He's been featured a couple times here at Abduzeedo, and he's done more awesome pieces, so here he is one more time! These are fantastic as usual. He's kept his game pretty tight. For more of his work, please visit his portfolio at Dribbble! I hope you enjoy these as much as we do! Cheers! ;)
