Designers and artists come together to spread the message - Stay Home

Day 18. I am starting to lose count, I would be totally transparent, yesterday it was a hard day to go by. Spring is here and you do miss the time spent outside, hanging out with relatives, friends, and colleagues. But we have the right reasons to stay inside, it's not easy but it's the right thing to do to stop the spread and actually save lives. To regain sanity, I enjoyed surfing on Dribbble and I couldn't help to put together this article for you all.

It was the Future... series by Benjamin Bardou

Day 14 of Confinement. Was it the future we all wished a couple of decades ago? One thing for sure, the entire planet is currently experiencing an 'invisible thread' that has touched many for the past weeks. Our advice to you? Listen to your leaders and make sure to take proper hygiene measures to stay safe. Whenever I am watching the news and see the emptiness of some of the cities in the world. You cannot help to think about scenarios of fictional movies about the off-world. It's really weird facing this type of realism.

MINSK3049: A quarantine homage from Belarus

What can I say, the recent news is really taking its exaction on the entire world. It has been touching us somehow and it's really important to keep the spirit up during these very hard times. Try to keep yourself informed during 'allowed timeslots', don't you just spend the entire day watching the news. It's unhealthy for your mind. Let's take Ilya Volgin for example. He has been creating a series titled: 'MINSK3049' in homage of his marvelous city of Minks during this quarantine period.

Netflix's Altered Carbon 2 Key Illustration

Since most of us are spending lots of time at 'home' and statistically speaking about 20% of the planet is in lockdown at the moment. How crazy is that? I hope you are finding the time to traverse new things and occupy all this time, maybe some Netflix? Speaking of that, did you watch the new Altered Carbon 2 Netflix series yet? We are featuring the key art illustration for the series designed by Dmitriy Glazyrin.

3D Animal Portraits by Maxim Shkret

This is the best opportunity to share some colours into your feed. Nothing to bring joy and inspiration than the work of Maxim Shkret with our constant admiration of his 3D animal series. Maxim is a digital artist that is super-talented and it's always refreshing. We pleasurably featured his work before and it's what we all needed right now, at this time in the World.

Reimagined Post-Apocalyptic inspired by 2020

With all that has been happening lately, the overcome feeling of uncertainty about the future is always present. What will happen tomorrow, it's a day-by-day question that we just keep asking ourselves. There are downsides and upsides as well, I think we should face our reality and find ways to embrace this moment somehow. We are featuring the work of Yury Ostapchuk, a conceptual artist who is sharing his vision of a nearby future. Let's take a look!

Gouache on Paper Illustrations by Manda Comisari

With the news vamping surrounded the Covid-19, precautions have been taken around the World to hopefully and somehow contain the spread. This has been affecting everything at the moment and when a time of uncertainty comes with a wave of support and kindness to one to another.

'Somewhere in the World' dreamlike spaces by Mue Studio

Mixing fantasy with pure experimentation, we follow this series titled:'Somewhere in the World' by Mue Studio. I just purely love how the kind folks from Mue Studio took a minimal approach and by at the same time mixing it up with architecture views. To be able to create this series, they obviously used Cinema 4D and they do a tremendous job at creating them through a vibrant color palette. What do you think? You just love the 'pink' on this one, props!  

unDraw, open-source illustrations built-in SVG, free and without attribution

Allowed me to straight introduce to unDraw. It's an open-source series of illustrations built-in SVG, free and without any attribution needed. Created by Katerina Limpitsouni, it's an impressive collection of illustrations covering a wide range of subjects going from minimal, modern, graphical and more kind of styles. On unDraw, you can easily search for these illustrations and quickly start creating your own take.

BMW E24 635 CSi Widebody - Automotive Design

It's not common that we have shared with time how much we became such fans of 'automotive design' on ABDZ, there is a mixture of a lot of things including design, industrial design, automotive design, and more. To kick off the week, we would like to share the work of Dmitry Mazurkevich who has created 'widebody kit' for the BMW E24 635 CSi. From the details, lighting, perspective, you will be enjoying its vibes and tones resembling the cars you would see on the Fast and Furious movies.

Visual Explorations and Experiments of Sneakers made in 3D

Sneakers! We love them, we collect them and why not create imaginative 3D models just like what David Padilla is doing through visual explorations and experiments. They are delightful, playful and purely creative through many styles of color palettes waiting to be devoured by our eyes. David does a tremendous job of giving his personal pieces, visual identities, and proper authority of fashion. Hope you will enjoy!

90s Style & Vibrant Lettering Works by Ju Schnee

We are featuring a 90s style lettering work by Ju Schnee, an illustrator based in Berlin, Germany. Each piece from this series kind of reminds you of the era of 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air', it's hard to deny anything else. Everything is there, the style, colors, quotes and more. Quite lovely if you ask me. After reading Ju's project blurb, you can't help to share the same views on the daily challenge that aren't related to client or work per se.

Digital Art & 3D typography by Pavel Zertsikel

Pavel Zertsikel shared some awesome digital design projects on his Behance profile. I personally like the 3D typography treatment he created, especially with the usage of transparency. Unfortunately there’s no mention of the tools used, which made me wonder how he achieve such nice effects.  For more information about Pavel check out his website at http://zerna.design/

Eerie Futuristic Digital Art by Cristian Chierici

I love mixing photography and Photoshop to create incredible light effects. If you follow the blog since the beginning you probably already know that. I love that eerie feeling you can create by imagining a supernatural reality and there are many digital artists pushing the limit. The cool thing is that they go beyond just Photoshop and really take advantage of 3D to translate ideas into convincing imagery. If you don't follow Beeple you should and you will know what I am talking about.

Lisbon 2049 series by Max Bedulenko

As currently living in Europe, it totally brings some sense of quirkiness when you start envisioning 'cinematic scenes' from popular cult movies like 1982's Blade Runner movie for example. It's hard not good and it's at the same time a fun photo challenge. This is the feeling I get when I am looking at the 'Lisbon' series by Max Bedulenko. Seriously there is some resemblance shown in both worlds so that's why I added the '2049' to the title. Hope you will dig it.

Abstract Digital Art: Tech Styleframes

Luca Genovese shared an incredible digital art project titled Tech Styleframes - Exploration. He used Cinema 4D and JSplacement to create a series of abstract images that look like computer motherboards and electronics. The outcome is simply beautiful, full of light effects and different perspectives. Honestly, I would love to have some of those as desktop and mobile wallpapers.

The Intriguing Art of Corey Brickley

Corey Brickley is an illustrator that has been recently caught my attention for a feature on ABDZ. His work is quite intriguing and it's the kind of art that makes you second guess about what was the initial concept or the idea behind its creation. It definitely brings a notion of imagination that we were so used to when we were kids. Ever since we are kicking off the new year, this might be the right way to march into this new decade with an optimistic flair.

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. Have you ever did something similar or I am just being weird! ZUSCROFA _ is an art director and motion designer based in Mexico City, Mexico and we are sharing his latest project: PROTECTORS. A series about what is his vision of this PROTECTOR, I just loved his concepts and experiments.
