Stylish Illustration and Designs by Johannes Aagaard

Johannes Aagaard is a graphic designer from Denmark with a nice set of works mixing typography illustration with some photo manipulations. I specially like some of his new designs: the Culture, Underwater Project, Half Awake and How Things Turn. Some are very geometric while others more organic, but all very well done. My name is Johannes Aagaard. I am 21 years old an live in Aarhus, in Denmark.

The Stylish Work from Barnaby Ward

Barbany Ward, aka somefield, is an artist that lives in Barbados (yeap, a paradise) and has some pretty stylish and unique pieces to show. His artworks are just great. His style, the color's combinations, the characters, the atmosphere, everything matches perfectly. Barnaby ward has a wife, some cats, and a website. He lives on a small island and spends far too much money on gas and too little time at the beach.

Badass God of War Collection

Lately I'm on a gaming fever. Video games have been a part of my life since ever, and there are some games that just stand out, for its quality, and most of all, for its badassness. Yeah, we love badass games, like the awesome God of War. So I went looking for some cool illustration of it, and found out some really cool ones, and I got say, that Kratos is like an freaking mythologic Chuck Norris. This guy would seriously tear apart a 20ft monster with his bare hands. No, seriously. Hahaha, just kidding...

During daytime David Lanham works for the Iconfactory producing some really beautiful and unique icons.

Awesome Strange Creatures by Imaginism Studios

Lately, looking for cool illustrations, I've got to know many awesome studios, like the Udoncrew (responsable for many of those great illustrations of Ryu and Chun-Li). Yesterday I found another one: Imaginism. I knew some of their work already, and I gotta tell you, they rock. You might be familiar with the Big Bad Bunny Eater, that enormous green creature with a bunny like spot on the face. Well it comes to be that Imaginism makes a lot of these creatures.

Great Abstract Illustrations by Mu!

Abstract illustration is something that always intrigued me, I always wonder how they come up with the ideas and also, how they make the ideas come true. Now it seems even more complicated if you go straight to the computer.

Beautiful Book Covers by Dan dos Santos

Illustrating book covers gotta be one awesome job. The cover of a book is its presentation, an image of what's to be found inside, and if represented in a good way, it calls readers. If done by an awesome artist, it calls a post on Abduzeedo. Daniel dos Santos is that artists that began doodleing in school, and found out his true calling through paint and canvas, and we are glad he did. These are truly some beautiful book covers that show us many other worlds and realities, some fascinating, some scary, but nevertheless, beautiful.

50 Tiny Superheroes Illustrations by Marcio Takara

A few months ago, during my regular visits to DeviantART, I ran into this amazing Brazilian illustrator, called Marcio Takara. I was really stunned by his style: black outlines, with smooth colors and an amazing trace. Many of these portraiting superheroes. Tiny superheroes. And ok, I lied, because this is not only about his work on tiny superheroes, but also on tiny cartoon and game characters, which are also amazing. This is a really fresh style, and I bet you'll love for its simplicity.

There are some illustrators that really know how to portrait what's in their mind. War, happiness, anger, lover are a few of the feelings that we often see in beautiful images that many times show us other worlds. Jason Chan is one of those artists. His illustrations remind me a lot of the Never Ending Story, among other movies, because of the fantasy feel, that's exactly what I find great about these.

Amazing Steampunk Illustrations

Where it began, I don't know, but the steampunk style has been out there for some long time now, and we've seen series and movies with the idea of a "high tech vintage" life. For me, one of the most fun steampunk movies is the 1999's Wild Wild West, which featured a lot of the great steampunk gagdets. Today, we bring to you a compilation of steampunk illustrations, which where found at DeviantART. These are pretty great, and gives a good insight on what the past could have been if there was high technology back then.
