Abstract 3D Illustrations by Mathieu Le Berre

Mathieu Le Berre is an art director into motion and 3D based in Paris, France. We are taking a look at his series titled 'Andromeda' which is a 3D abstract piece as I quote: 'objects of the natural, real or imaginary world, but only shapes and colors for themselves.' It's purely imaginative, creative, vibrant, and I really dig the art direction. You should definitely check out more of his work via his Behance and other social feeds. He has lots of amazing projects and more to come I am sure.

Surf Locos Illustrations

It's cool how the season can shift your perspective on your day-to-day. I have been feeling more lively with the summer and how things are very slowly coming back to some normality. This is what I felt seeing the work of Magdalena Kaczi, an art director and illustrator based in Warsaw, Poland. We are featuring her series titled: 'Surf Locos' and within a few illustrations, you can the perfect mood of that 'surf life'. I really like that first image, you can almost feel the emotion of that piece itself.

I personally dig her work where she is exploring pieces surrounding the golden hour. I just love the tones and the subtleness with the shadow.

Rebranding Illustrations for Scout

Continuing my search for a client visual style, I stumbled on another amazing series of illustrations by Febin Raj, an illustrator & designer based in Bangalore, India. He worked on a rebranding project illustrating the different landscapes of the beautiful country of Australia. Based and inspired by a concept by 'Jean Louise - To Kill a Mockingbird', we follow the journey of the protagonist into the wild of the wilderness. I love the colors representing either the sunrise or the sunset, they are so warm as you can almost feel them.

In the meantime, props to David for inspiring to the near future.

Fruity Loops — Stylish Illustrations

I am a huge fan of the illustration work that Lena Vargas does. I have been following the projects and it always impresses me how fresh, clean and stylish Lena’s work is. This project in particular has a light, sort of pastel color palette with a bit of a 80s look, well for me if there’s sort of RGB gradient, my brain automatically thinks we’re talking about 80s style. Anyway, this project is called Fruity loops.

I strongly encourage Geo to have more fun with these, this is what I decided to feature his series on abdz.

Game artist recreates iconic movie scenes through Pixel Art

As a huge movie rat, I can't help to really enjoy this Pixel Art feature for Gustavo Viselner, a game & pixel artist based in Tel Aviv, Israel. His work? Recreating movie and television scenes made of Pixel art. He is on a mission saying that Pixel art is no longer a graphic tool for games and as I quote: "...a form of art". I totally dig that! Try to guess which movies are shown in this collection I have put together, as I decided to leave out the caption titles for you to find out by yourself. A hint?
