Vapordreams'97 with Aaron Campbell

We have featured the work of Aaron before on ABDZ, I truly love his work especially this latest series titled: 'V A P O R D R E A M S • '97'. If you are a kid from the 80s (like me), you will probably be familiar with some of these items shown and/or scenes in this series are pure nostalgia. I mean just take a look at the artwork with the 'Goldeneye' game, how many hours have I spent playing this game. This is too pure. Hopefully, you will find some sentimentality as well.

Digital Art: PROTECTORS Series by ZUSCROFA _

ZUSCROFA _ shared a cool project on his Behance, I remember when I was a kid and I would create this monster kind of gruesome-looking but he was nice and he was my bodyguard from my nightmares.

A series about what is his vision of this PROTECTOR, I just loved his concepts and experiments.

Sci-Fi Vehicles by Zenildo Almeida

Just to keep the momentum with Tesla's Cybertruck, I decided to share a series of futuristic car designs by Zenildo Almeida simply titled: Sci-Fi Vehicles. Hint* None of the cars have 'tires', they are mostly 'hovering' above the ground. I just love how the background is set into a post-apocalytic world in the desert. There is definitely a Mad Max vibe in the atmosphere.

The journey of a coma through digital art

I wouldn't start imagining what it feels like to be in a 'coma', a deep state of prolonged unconsciousness is a scary feeling. I never met anyone who lived this kind of experience before but artist Abdulrahman Alhusainey has created an incredible series through art simply titled: 'Coma'. I really love the fact his visual approach is inspired by a journey, be ready to scroll! Make sure to scroll all the way till the end.

TOOLS - 3D Digital Art

Luis de la Barrera-Montenegro is a visual artist, 3D, motion artist based in Madrid, Spain. He has been making an interesting 3D digital art series about our everyday tools as we all commonly know them about. But in his series, he actually replaced the elements or shall we call them components used instead of actually making 3D renders of the tool itself. The results are so clever and remarkable. Hope you will enjoy this collection!

To help spread the message, I decided to share the work from Nick Pederson.

Flower Pool Series - A personal exploration by Anna Caban

But there is imaginative freedom to create something in another dimension. 3D artist named Anna Caban proves it right that you can clearly justify your creative needs through personal explorations. We are featuring her personal project titled: 'Flower Pool', a series of experiments she made using Cinema 4D and Octane. Hope you will enjoy!

Citizens of the Jungle Illustration Series

Let's take a look at the work from Ladislas Chachignot who is an illustrator, digital painter, and creator of the Citizens of the Jungle Illustration Series. What is it? Well, it's a series of portraits illustrating our lost connection towards nowadays strong resistance of technology and our initial primitive "wilderness". First of all, I truly love the variety of colors used throughout this series and utterly more knowing its signification.

A series of Illustrations for UI by Aldiyar Aidash

It's not my first time seeing this but the use of 'illustration' in product design is very important nowadays. Most of us designers are eager to craft the simplest and most intuitive user experience. Meanwhile, we do sometimes neglect the use of illustrations to communicate the features with much more tenacity. This is why we are sharing the work of Aldiyar Aidash who is a product designer taking a stab at illustrations, really great stuff! It's definitely will be inspiring some of us to take the right 'virage'.

In this series, you will be taken in the desert, close to the ocean and everywhere.

Digital Art - Awesome Emission Series by JT DiMartile

I haven't worked with Photoshop in quite a long time, however, I feel that it's, perhaps time to get back to it. The reason I say this is because when I saw the digital art that JT DiMartile created for the Emission Series I got the urge to open Photoshop and try to recreate those shapes and light effects. 

Pastel Japan, Cats and Alleyways Illustrations

We are featuring the illustrations from Denise aka surudenise, they are filled with pastel colours, Japan, cats and alleyways. What else do you want? These are packed with beautiful and vibrant colors! I especially like her two illustrations referring to Kyoto Cats Day/Night, almost have that Anime feels. You should definitely give her a follow on Instagram where she incorporates the same feels in terms of color palette.

Stylish Digital Art: The Way of Waking Up

Jesus Amador is a product designer working with UI and UX design but he is also an incredible digital artists as you can see on this beautiful project he shared on his Behance profile. The illustrations and digital art have a super stylish look with a sort of sepia tone and a very surrealist feel. I am a fan of anything that combines abstract ideas with the noir look, which it seems that J Amador achieved amazingly well.

Claiming its next-generation of tech and sports footwear. Here are a few keywords: self-lacing system, mobile app. Does that sound great? Let's give it a look!

Alphabet Dispersion Typography Series

This typographic series started as exploration while playing with the settings and glass materials within the applications 'Arnold renderer and 'Cinema 4D'. The results are mesmerizing, the idea of 'dispersion' comes from the familiar example of a rainbow. I guess we are all familiar with that stripe of colors. The challenge to achieve such a natural look, takes time and commitment to do so. We are featuring the work of denfo, who took that ideology and decided to create a 'typography series titled: 'Alphabet Dispersion'.

Everything handpicked on Dribbble, one burst of inspiration can go a long way. Let me know what you think?

What if social media platforms had abstract shapes

I am gonna start by saying that social media platforms can have its benefits and its disadvantages. I won't be the first to tell you that I have experience both and it's not always a fairytale. Again, it's a sense of control that you give yourself on, do you let yourself submerge yourself into the endless sea of notifications or give it some control. Continuing the pursuit of my discoveries of talented designers and artists from Switzerland, I would like to present the work of Andrea Philippon who is based in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Captivating and nonsense in 3D series by Roman Bratschi

As I am finalizing my next 'thoughts on' how I am reflecting my move to Switzerland. It's an ABDZ tradition to scramble around Behance to find and discover designers and artists from the beautiful country I am currently living in. There are so many finds and many talented designers to feature on Abduzeedo, this is the beginning of something new. As starters, we are looking at this nonsense (a play on words) 3D series and it has been designed by Roman Bratschi.
