I've been pretty overwhelmed about space lately. Our culture really loves to visualize and imagine space exploration, life out there, and it's something that really gets stuck in your mind and it has to be expressed in someway at some point. This post is my way of saying: the space rocks, get inspired by it like I am. So I went searching for cool space inspired artworks to share with you, and I think I've managed to assemble a good set of cool pieces for you. From photography, to retro space art, here you'll find some sweet art! I hope you enjoy these, and hopefully it will get your creative juices flowing.

Another awesome project by Charis Tsevis, the mosaic master this time strikes with an amazing project where he illustrate people using only logos from global brands. Check it out! The Advertising campaign for the world leader in outdoor advertising in Switzerland Clear Channel is one of the leading marketing companies of outdoor advertising worldwide. For their latest advertising campaign in Switzerland they have asked their clients to participate.

I had the honor and the pleasure to collaborate with Alpha 245 Zurich to create these illustrations for the campaign. For more from Charis Tsevis visit tsevis.com.
Paper crafted artwork is probably my favorite style. I believe the reason is simply because I would never be able to create something nice with this technique, at least not as nice, or I'd say amazing as the work that my fellow Brazilian Arthur Régis put together titled Cali Lifestyle. What really fascinates me is the depth that the composition gets by the order of the layers which seem to come alive at first glance. For this creative project the idea is a paper-craft piece using colored paper, foam paper and glue. The choice of material and the way it was used refers to the several layers this state has and all of it’s amazing colors, that are very important in the project because it also express the diversity and the weather of California. The vivid and warm colors correlate with the sun and the heat of the West Coast and contrasts with the cold colors of the ocean and sky, creating a divisional line that divides the viewer’s focus in two contrasting areas. The “Lifestyle” typography was a reference to the license plate of the state, but in this 33x21 inches project, the focus is the word “California”, an exclusive lettering that mix the artistic part with the conceptual part of it (Lettering + California Lifestyle) and becomes a singular design that express my vision of what could be the California lifestyle and culture.

Pulp magazines had awesome illustrated covers, with a very particular style, known as the pulp art. Some artists still come up with amazing pulp illustrations, now filled with pop culture references, which is awesome! Ástor Alexander, a Californian artist, has illustrated a beautiful set of pulp covers... you can check some of them below. Pulp covers were printed in color on higher-quality (slick) paper. They were famous for their half-dressed damsels in distress, usually awaiting a rescuing hero. Cover art played a major part in the marketing of pulp magazines. The early pulp magazines could boast covers by some distinguished American artists Covers were important enough to sales that sometimes they would be designed first; authors would then be shown the cover art and asked to write a story to match. Later pulps began to feature interior illustrations, depicting elements of the stories. The drawings were printed in black ink on the same cream-colored paper used for the text, and had to use specific techniques to avoid blotting on the coarse texture of the cheap pulp. Thus, fine lines and heavy detail were usually not an option. Shading was by crosshatching or pointillism, and even that had to be limited and coarse. For more of Ástor's work, please visit his portfolio at Behance. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. ;)
One of the greatest things for me is to see a super talented artist being appreciated by tons of people. Lately I've come to find a Brazilian artist whose work is being shared a lot all over Facebook and other design blogs, and I thought we really had to feature his work as well, because he's really talented. Julio Cezar has the talent I wish I had... he comes up with marvelous illustrations and has developed a project called Portraits, in which he illustrations a person's photograph. The results are simply fantastic. For his project and much more great artworks of the cutest girls, please visit his portfolio at Behance, ArtStation, Instagram or Facebook. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. ;)
