South Bank Tower Illustration

South Bank Tower Illustration

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.

Create your Future - Paper Craft

Create your Future - Paper Craft

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.

Eerie Illustrations of an Apocalyptical World

Eerie Illustrations of an Apocalyptical World

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.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Noir

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/

Exquisite Artworks by Wojtek Fus

We're seeing much more female characters under the spotlight these days, and hopefully we're gonna see even more in the future! Among the Jedi, there are very few rocking the Force and displaying some sweet fencing skills with their lightsabers, so it's always great to see artists coming up with these characters. Here you can see some strong female characters with their lightsabers... this pumps me up for the new Star Wars and hopefully we'll find out Rey is the actual Jedi in this story. The man behind these awesome illustrations is Polish artist Wojtek Fus. For more of his amazing work, please visit his portfolio at ArtStation! I hope you enjoy these!
