Mike Mitchell is definitely one of my favorite artists out there. He's one of those artists that you should always keep an eye on, because when you least expect, BOOM, there's an awesome new project. This time he's releasing around 30 new pieces, portraits of famous characters from movies and TV. I always thought that his comic-like art was pretty awesome, but I didn't know he was so good in other styles, like the one below. These are a few pieces of this new project, but you can visit the exposition at Mondo Gallery, in Austin, TX. It opens today, April 26th, and closes on May 25th. Check out his portfolio for more information! I hope you enjoy these Cheers! ;) Igor - Young Frankenstein Django - Django Unchained Bill "The Butcher" Cutting - Gangs of New York Jimmie Dimmick - Pulp Fiction Tyrion Lannister - Game of Thrones Judge Dredd - Dredd R.J.

I always impressed about artists that get to make illustrations about famous characters, it's really fun to see their personal touch on their versions. I stumbled on the work of Josh Summana while wandering through DeviantArt galleries and I gotta say I'm still quite impressed with the level of detail and with the style of the versions he made. I also posted two videos of the process he did to create his illustrations, hope you guys catch some ideas from it. You can see more awesomeness from Josh at his DevianArt profile.
I really love the creativity of artists that find new ways to present us famous characters. Among the best and most creative ideas is the anatomy cut, which happens to be Jason Freeny's speciality. These are awesome! From Mickey Mouse to Mario Mario, Jason has done the anatomy of a great amount of characters. Here you can a find a brief selection of his pieces, but for more of it you should really check Freeny's portfolio at DeviantART or like his Facebook page. I really hope you enjoy these, and don't forget to comment. Cheers! ;)
Tiago Hoisel is a super talented illustrator from São Paulo, Brazil. You have probably seen some of his work in sites such as FFFFound, Design You Trust and of course on our Daily Inspiration. One that is pretty popular is the Davy Jones character illustration and he has so many more amazing pieces that we were really surprised that we haven't had featured him before. For more information about Tiago Hoisel, visit http://hoisel.zip.net/, it's fantastic and definitely worth to checking it out. I also would like to thank Marcelo Souza (@msouza3d) for the heads up about Tiago.
Eamo Donnelly is an Australian based illustrator who is best known for his intricately hand inked, character driven illustrations, infused with an eclectically dynamic color palette with a true blue Aussie cheekiness.

As well as commercial commissions, his love affair for Australian eighties nostalgia prompted him to create personal works that reflected the beauty and uniqueness of the culture he grew up in. These works have been seen on Jeeps for Mountain Dew, wallets for Poketo in L.A, shoes for String Republic in France, t-shirts for Owl Movement, esky's, stubby holders, clocks, bar walls and street posters and in exhibitions in Melbourne, Sydney and in the U.S and the U.K. In 2009 he was short listed for best original illustration in the Australian Desktop Create Awards and in 2010 he will be a speaker at Melbourne's Design Conference AGIdeas.

Paul Hogan. YouTube the Paul Hogan Show from the ’70s and you’ll see why. His later works are still up there, but nothing beats his early oils on canvas from the 1976 period, such as “Leo Wanker”, “Donger”, “Getting fit with Arthur Dunger” and “Herb Guthrey, Mongrel breeder”. - Eamo,Design Reporter “Working across many areas has enhanced my career but that was never the intention,” he says. “My intention is always to try new things, to learn and to make work that I like. I suppose by making more work you become more visible, which leads to more contacts and more commissions.” - Interview for Computer Arts Videos EAMO NO COMPLY INKING TIME LAPSE from Jacky Winter on Vimeo.

Gustavo Sobral is an graphic designer and illustrator from Brazil with such a great talent in creating characters. But his work is much more than that, we can see posters, ads and some amazing illlustrations. We highly recommend that you check out his Flickr page, and below we will list some examples of his work. I'm from Mogi-Mirin, São Paulo but now I'm based in Campinas-SP. I've been drawing since I was kid and now I'm taking Visual Arts at UNICAMP. Also I've been working as creative director for an agency called Ponto de Criação. Besides that I work as illustrator and have created some illustrations for companies such as Duracell, Ariel, Ace, UOL, Hipercard and Jeep..... I try to vary my style either in illustration or design, I think it's important because you will be able to fit with the market's necessities and not got stuck in a certain trend.
