Let's take a look at the Illustration & Art Direction project by Eiko Ojala about a selected collection of his work from 2016-17. What's interesting is that you would think that is paper cut but it's a illustrative mixture with graphic design.
We have featured Anxo Vizcaíno a couple of times here on Abduzeedo, he actually has some of the most inspiring Photoshop illustration projects on Behance IMO, full of light effects and eeries space theme. AnxoI had the chance to make a set of illustrations for the 6th issue of Tantrum, the "magazine of extraordinary stories". As the name suggests, the theme is quite extraordinary and Anxo takes full advantage of that.
It's a lovely small magazine published in Spain and developed by Impresiones Privadas. It consists of four short sci-fi stories and some extra cool stuff. Had some fun working on these!
