Google Pixel 2 Wallpapers by Leta Sobierajski & Wade Jeffree

Google Pixel 2 Wallpapers by Leta Sobierajski & Wade Jeffree

We are sharing this very cool project by Leta Sobierajski and Wade Jeffree for the Google Pixel 2. It's a crazy fact that the wallpapers they have worked would be installed on every single Pixel 2 Phone. It's such an accomplishment and another fact that they haven't used any digital tools except for their creativity, hands and a lot of patience. Check them out, it's quite amazing! Props to everyone involved in the project. In 2017, Google invited Wade Jeffree and Leta Sobierajski to create a set of wallpapers for their Google Pixel 2. Our wallpapers would come installed on every Pixel 2 phone, leaving our work in millions of people’s hands. We wanted to reinterpret the notion of abstract expressionism. We were inspired by the paintings that explored this visual language and we sought to make sculptural forms instead—ones that embody the movement and freedom from so many of the paintings.

Sheppard's Stunning Album Cover Design by Ars Thanea

Sheppard's Stunning Album Cover Design by Ars Thanea

Ars Thanea is an award-winning creative studio based in Warsaw, they have been working and producing some of the best works we have ever seen on ABDZ. The most amazing thing is even after all these years, they still surprise us with their creativity and perseverance to push the limits. Let's take a look at their album design for the indie pop band: Sheppard entitled: Watching The Sky. And as you can see they could have taken a simpler ride with CGI but decided to just hand-crafted. Props to everyone involved in the project. The indie pop band “Sheppard” from Australia, known for the hits such as “Geronimo” or “Let me down easy” approached us to create a cover for the newest album titled “Watching The Sky”. This time we decided to use true glass as the essential material. As the result, we blew several dozen little bubbles to create a real glass cloud sculpture. And once again, hand-crafted work turned out to be the greatest choice!

The Unstoppable Beeple with the Everydays Series

The Unstoppable Beeple with the Everydays Series

We are not shy to admit how much we love Beeple's work on ABDZ. We just can't help to appreciate his insane creativity and perseverance at making new work every single day for as long as we can remember. This might be his 4th or 5th feature on ABDZ and we won't be stopping there. If you don't know who is Beeple, he is an artist based in Charleston, SC USA and focusing in Digital Art, Graphic Design, Motion Graphics. I've been doing everydays for the last ten years (haven't missed a day!) and I am currently on my 11th round of everydays. This year I'll be doing a render everyday using Cinema4D and instead of trying to learn new software, will be focusing on some of the fundamentals like color, composition, value etc.... :) More Links Learn more about Beeple at beeple-crap.com Follow Beeple on Instagram Follow his work on Behance Everydays Illustration

Winter Sport Character Design by Dora Vincze

We are delighted to share a timely post today by Hungarian-based illustrator Dora Vincze showcasing some fun illustrations celebrating winter sports. Just in time for the Olympics in South Korea, these whimsical, animated character illustrations have us beaming from ear to ear. The Winter Olympics began in 1924 in Chamonix, France as a major international affair and continued to take place every four years. Having evolved since their inception, sports and disciplines have been added and subtracted over time. The sports Vincze features here such as Alpine skiing and snowboarding have earned a permanent spot on the Olympic programme. For this work Vincze has employed Photoshop and After Effects to achieve the cheery end result. We don't have much further detail to wax poetic on this talented young illustrator but you can check her Instagram for more discovery and inspiration.

Forgotten Temple Illustration by Rui Gonçalves

Forgotten Temple Illustration by Rui Gonçalves

Let's take a look at this rather cool illustration by art director/graphic designer Rui Gonçalves. Based in Barcelona, Spain, Rui is a true passion when it comes to graphic design and also art direction. Judging by his Behance Profile, ideas and concepts seems to be his forté. Today we are a case study at the Forgotten Temple Illustration, a commission project ended up being a personal experimentation. My favourite part of this illustration is the layers of details from what's underneath the sea, the dinosaur fossil is quite a nice touch. This illustration also reminds me of his Everything is okay, until it's not. project that we have featured on ABDZ. What started as a commission ended in a personal project. I wanted to push my isometric illustration skills a bit more so i decided to turn this idea, which originally was designed for a client, into a personal project - "Forgotten Temple". Hope you guys like it! More Links Learn more about Rui Gonçalves at ruimgoncalves.com Follow Rui's work on Behance Previous Feature on ABDZ Illustration & Process   Quick Process
