Prepare to be amazed by masterpiece drawings by Gurekbal Bhachu who is a self-taught artist based in London, UK. His muse?

I always like to feature things that inspire me, most of the time it's about a piece of graphic design, a website. Lately, it has been about books, especially biographies and books about investment (I need to retire one day ?) as well as photography and of course UI and UX, which is my day to day job. I know it might sound cheesy but inspiration is everywhere and with the globalized world that is even more clear. However, I got truly inspired by a cause that has filled my heart with happiness and brought tears to my eyes, but not of sadness, but enlightenment.
Fady Youssef is an Egyptian art director based in Dubai. He created this amazing series of character design made out of waste, literally. With old electronic parts he put together some quite inspiring compositions with character full of personality. It definitely reminds me of Wall-e by Pixar. With scores of new smartphones and computers release every quarter, tons of electronic devices are thrown away – and they often wind up filling our landfills and polluting the environment.

Today is the release date of the movie Ghost in the Shell starring with Scarlett Johansson. Aside from the "whitewashing" drama, I personally watched the first 5 minutes video and thought it was such a great adaptation to the anime. It's great to know that the creator named Masamune Shirow was part and supporting the movie cast. When a movie with this prestige comes out to the theaters, it always does bring artists together to create and make a little tribute to the movie. Hope you will enjoy this collection we've put together!
Kids, wolves, bears and birds are all part of the sublime art of Kevin Peterson, through the power message/icon of using kids as it's masterpiece is absolutely powerful in my opinion.

With an urban environment, we explore Kevin's pure creativity and craft. Hope you will enjoy!
