Art + Illustrations by Julien Pacaud

When first exposed to the work of Julien Pacaud I immediately took a liking to it on the basis of the illustrator's quirky style and imagination, and his ability to stop the viewer in their tracks with dynamic imagery rich with story and emotion. I enjoy this aspect of his work beyond even, an attempt at literal interpretation. Reminiscent of James Rosenquist's work from the 1960's you get the sense that Pacaud is, among other things, a fantastic visual storyteller with a great sense of humor - even if you only see one image out of a set. His work has a special way of stopping Simply put: I find this artist and his work interesting. Interesting in the way that only someone with enormous talent and graciousness (as apposed to arrogance) can be. Just check out the "about" section from his website for a perfect example: "I'm a french illustrator, currently living in Le Mans, France. Before becoming an illustrator, i was, by turns : an astrophysician, an international snooker player, a hypnotist and an esperanto teacher. I hope i can someday have enough free time to devote myself to my real passion : time travel." I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do!

Badass Marvel and Tron Crossover Illustrations

When Disney bought Marvel we thought we would see some crappy crossovers like Donald Duck as Cyclops or something. But, man, we were sooo wrong. This is better (obviously) than we could have imagined. Marvel will be releasing special covers in Tron styles. Spidey, Iron Man, Thor and many others from the Marvel world get a new look for this homage/promo to Tron. And seriously, how badass are these? I feel bad for thinking that Mickey as Wolverine was the best Disney could do. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers! ;)

Great Caricatures by Jason Seiler

One thing that has always caught my attention are caricatures. They are usually super funny and if you add political value to them, you got yourself a great piece of work. This is the case of Jason Seiler's work. He's done all kinds of caricatures: politics, music, movies, science... and they're all great. I really dig his style, using realistic shades for skin, which takes his work to a whole other level of coolness. For more of his awesome work, I really recommend you to visit his website or deviantart. He'll appreciate your visits. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. ;)

We here at Abduzeedo are huge fans of Sara's work and we highly recommend to check it out, we're sure you will love it! The Cock (SOLD OUT) Clown Mona Lisa Alice Puppet The Strongest Man In The World everything is connected by certain rules and quality — texture, colour, and linework.

Awesome Colorful Oil Paintings

Sebastien Feraut aka Niark1 is an awesome Illustrator and painter with an incredible style that is hard to describe but easy to fall in love with. His paintings are colorful and very illustrative but so intriguing that the more you look the more you like it, check it out! His style results in a misuse of codes and values. Conventions have no place to be, catch all the crazy. The standards of different cultures are reinterpreted with any the audacity of its own. And it still holds the road. Indeed cartoon-inspired characters are disfigured or rather transfigured, like the comic spirit that emanates from his work Niark1 and which adds a touch of burlesque.Lissue Gallery
