We would love to introduce the work of Alex Maltsev who is a digital artist based in Los Angeles, California. I am surprised we have never featured him on ABDZ but now it's official. His style is quite experimental because you can notice how Alex is trying different concepts and it's working quite well for him. Focusing his work on of course digital art, motion, and illustration; make sure to check out more of his works on Behance.
We are sharing the work from Omar. Aqil and Duck Knees who have worked with Expedia on both respectively on Art Direction and Ilustration. Based on the concept of Synaesthesia (which is a form of a condition.) that you can sense the causes of an involuntary reaction in one or more of the other senses. Based on that personal experience, you get such a great idea and in the end, it's such an explosive concept worth taking a look at. Props for their work!
Happy Friday everyone! We wanted to share this series of experiments/illustrations by Kirill Maksimchuk, a visual artist based in Kaliningrad, Russian Federation. It hasn't been long ago since our last feature on ABDZ but his work is such so unique and visually inspiring! You should definitely check out his Behance, it's filled with 3D, 4D renders, concepts, motion and more.
Silvino González Morales shared a quite beautiful post on graphic design featuring a set of abstract illustrations titled Espectros. The idea is simple, it basically blends shapes with a radial gradient. However the composition makes it very unique. As the wise man say, the simple things are always the most difficult to achieve. Silvino proved that to be right. I wouldn't mind having one of those in my house.
Just a little while ago, we have featured the work of Muhammed Sajid on his "Home" series on ABDZ. Muhammed has a distinct body of work that needs a lot more recognition and just adding to his awesomeness, he is even sharing a GIF time-lapse of his process. What can you ask more? It's quite inspiring! Let's kick it off in style with Muhammed Sajid
We have featured the work of Billelis for his rad illustration on Black Panther. He is back again with two illustrations as a tribute to Avengers: Infinity War. This movie has been crushing at the Box Office and it's exciting on how it inspires artists to create. Thanks to Billelis for sharing the process shots which is interesting and always inspiring. I just love the texture on Thano's Gauntlet, it's amazing.
Andrew Footit recently had the privilege to work with ESPN The Magazine on their NEXT Feature. The project included a typographic Intro Illustration a flat logotype of the Intro type and some custom letters which later turned into a font. The feature is about up coming and young star athletes, the next stars of their specific sports. The intro piece needed to have a futuristic feel to it so we used 3D type with LED styled lighting inner strips.
Happy Friday guys! Already the end of the week and hope your week went pretty well.

We're totally digging these gorgeous Tarot cards designed for Neustellar, a Swiss organization run by Andreas Graf that provides spiritual teaching, mindfulness workshops and counseling. The creative talent behind the work is the lovely Caterina Bianchini, a multi-award winning designer and art director based in London. Tarot cards may not be the first place you look for drawing inspiration but we hope these have moved you just as much as they have us.
Grzegorz Domaradzki created some stunning illustrations for the Indiana Jones trilogy. They feature all main characters that made these movies, probably the most entertaining trilogy ever. I know there's a fourth movie, but we rather not count that one. There are 2 versions of the poster, in 8 or 6 color screen print with metallic links. As you can see from the images below, they are quite amazing. Illustrations
Thomas Rohlfs is an illustrator from Amsterdam, Netherlands with a very unique style. He shared a illustration post on his Behance profile showing a bit of his process from sketches to the final piece. The most amazing thing for me is the sense of movement added by a quite aggressive perspective. In addition to that, the color scheme and textures are top notch.
This Sunday, I will be heading out to Amsterdam to cover another launch for you guys. We will keep you posted! In the meantime, as an ABDZ tradition; it's always interesting to discover designers or illustrators from the city you are visiting. I stumbled across the work of Sail Ho Studio, a studio all about illustration and motion design based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. We are taking a look at their beautiful illustrative series: Cities of Colours.
Muhammed Sajid is an illustrator from Bangalore, India and he shared a beautiful set of illustrations titled Home on his Behance profile. As the name suggests it's about houses but the cool thing is that he illustrated all sorts of different house styles from classic, to modernist to mid-century to Spanish style, he got them all. I particular like the use of color and texture applied to his work. There's a lot of character as well so check them out.

We're delighted by the whimsical work of French-born, Berlin-based illustrator Marc Majewski and in particular his recent children's picture book titled Une Histoire. The story is an ode to the imagination and daydreaming and takes the reader on a joyous journey by way of endearing illustrations spotlighting Majewski's passion for color and light.

Bastien Grivet is a Swiss Art Director, Concept Artist, Matte Painter & Composer based in Montpellier, France. He has an incredible portfolio featuring different styles with one thing in common, they are all top-notch in terms of quality. Personally, because, of my fascination with light effects I tend to prefer anything that has a neon light effect. For this post I focused on a few projects exemplifying Bastien's incredible digital art work.
