It looks like we have never featured the work of G R A Z A ™ before on ABDZ. Well, his "Human Color Sets" will be the perfect first opportunity which is a set of 3D & CGI Illustrations. First of all, you just gotta love the "set" aspect of this series where you can only imagine one perspective with yet so much details from the fog, neons and even the reflection effect from the water on the sidewalk. G R A Z A ™ is a Digital Art Studio based in Lima - Perú.
Ale Giorgini is an illustrator from Vicenza, Italy with a beautiful and I's say unique style. It is very clean, like vector style but with so much personality that it makes it stand out. I have seen a lot of vector illustrations, especially with thick strokes like Ale's ones and some times they get a bit too common almost clip-art look. It's not the case with Ale's work. You can see the attention to details, the curves everything makes sense. For this post I will feature some of the print work he did for the Vespaclub.
Abduzeedo is quite familiar with Aaron Campbell's work, we love his style/mixture of vibrant colors and illustrative world that he's so great at portraying. His illustration work is impressive to say, a combination of tools like Adobe Photoshop and Sketching. We truly admire and great fans of his Droplets Series and hope you'll enjoy the latest of Aaron's work.
Nick Liefhebber is an artist based Utrecht, Netherlands. He has shared on his Behance profile, a series of illustrations entitled: "Hidden Summer" using the Procreate app. Nick was invited to create using the latest Procreate 4.3 which includes a text tool for his next artwork. I just love how his illustrations are indeed hiding a beauty key inside each piece as if it were hiding from its discovery.
Let's take a pause and look at this illustration series by Oleg Belinsky named Futurism vs. Passeism. You'll notice the mixture of that black solid color, geometrics, lighting and gradients are just a combination of a stunning stylish art. I really love the tone and the details given to the white colour, just add an incredible final touch. I wish there was more of this series but time will let us know and I can't wait to see more of Oleg's work in the near future. Hope you dig it as well!
Game Design is definitely a category we don't feature enough on Abduzeedo, that being said let's take a look at what might be a glimpse of Paris in the year of 2084 through the eyes of Paul Chadeisson. These are actually illustrations from a game named: Rememberme, I love the futuristic influence that totally reminds of Blade Runner which is quite interesting knowingly the beauty of the streets of Paris with a modern flair from Tokyo.
We are a little bit in the 90s nostalgia here on ABDZ lately. First of all with our series: That 90s Look is Coming Back and of course the latest from Marvel with which is set in the 90s. No spoiler alert! In that honour, I wanted to feature the work from Leonardoworx LWX with his series: LOST-TAPES SPRING-19.
We would like to share the latest work from Christi du Toit with his The Lost & Found illustrative series on Abduzeedo. Rarely we'll see an artist sharing an ongoing compilation of illustrations created either as personal pieces, smaller client projects, rejected concepts, or even a discovery of style exploration. Whatever is your work background, I truly believe at taking the time to make stuff. All the time.
Orlando Arocena shared an incredible vector illustration project for the upcoming Disney movie Dumbo. Orland was really cool to publish a little making of, or a step by step allowing us to get a bit more of the behind the scenes of his creation process. At the end we have a 19,251 points vector illustration full of amazing details.
Let's take a closer look at the work of Carlos Dattoli and his anticipated illustration series entitled: Fat Heroes II. He is an illustrator and a concept artist based in Mexico. What's intriguing about his series is the physical change of the subject, they are all fat. I just love how this is a reflection of how every single of us have this perception of what a hero should look like. Not all heroes should wear a cape, they come in all shapes and forms. I think this is a bold statement and we all should be inspired from.
One of the greatest things for me is to see a super talented artist being appreciated by tons of people. Lately, I've come to find a Brazilian artist whose work is being shared a lot all over Facebook and other design blogs, and I thought we really had to feature his work as well because he's really talented.
I am a fan of abstract illustration, especially when it mixes 3D with some very simple geometry like the fantastic work of Martin Cusano. Martin shared a set of super colorful, yet beautiful artwork merging all the elements needed to a truly nostalgic look. From the gradients to the texture and patterns, some of those pieces reminded me of Brazilian Broadcasting TV in the late 80s early 90s. A lot of chrome, simply geometries like triangles circles and reflections.
Levente Szabo shared a beautiful illustration project celebrating the great Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. With a set of colorful and super stylish illustrations Levent captured the modernist work of Oscar with extreme accuracy.
Let's pay a visit into the Cyberpunk World with this incredible illustration series by Evgenij Kungur, a freelance artist from Кунгур, Russian Federation. Taking right back into the underworld of Blade Runner, with its futuristic spaceships, neons, animated billboards and more. He shared three different styles of illustrations including its variants. But the coolest part is seeing the process behind each artwork, make sure to check it out.
We have received the amazing work by Design Lad not to confused with Design Lead! He is a London-based designer and illustrator that focuses his work in bold, playful and colourful 3D illustrations. I am surprised that we have never featured his work before on ABDZ. Represented by our friends from Jelly London, make sure to follow his work on Instagram
For some reason I missed this but Plasticbionicshared an amazing illustration created for the Adobe Animate CC splash screen. In addition to that they shared a set of artworks that look like they are part of the exploration for that final work. Visually speaking, in my humble opinion, the work is top notch, especially the color palette and the subtle 3D effect.
Paper craft artwork is probably my favorite style. I believe the reason is simply because I would never be able to create something nice with this technique, at least not as nice, or I'd say amazing as the work that my fellow Brazilian Arthur Régis put together titled Cali Lifestyle. What really fascinates me is the depth that the composition gets by the order of the layers which seem to come alive at first glance. For this creative project the idea is a paper-craft piece using colored paper, foam paper and glue.
Mateusz Urbanowicz aka. Matto, is a very talented illustrator and digital designer. Born and raised in Silesia, Poland, Matto currently lives in Tokyo. The artist has a lot of beautiful artworks on his portfolio. But one series of illustrations he created really caught my attention. Tokyo Storefront series is a collection of exquisite watercolor pieces showcasing Tokyo shops. What is so unique about it is that Matto turns the busy life of Tokyo into delicate illustrations.
I stumbled across this beautiful illustration and graphic design project by Imédia Firme Créative, especially the work from Marie-Joëlle Lemire, Nicolas Lambert, Valérie Pilotte and Claudie Déry. It’s one of those things that you’ll giveaway as a gift and for this present case is so well done. I also really enjoy the print work with the shiny vinyl. Congrats to the whole team for winning an award for Applied Arts Magazine 2017 in Ilustration.
Oscar Llorens shared an incredible illustration project on his Behance profile titled Dolls. It's his second project done entirely using the iPad and Procreate and, honestly, I was blown away. The first time I saw I really thought it was done using Photoshop because of the textures and the style. It was definitely a happy surprise, especially as I try to use my iPad for content creation, like write now writing this post.
