Eduardo León is a graphic designer and illustrator from Mexico, Mexico. He shares a series of illustrations that really caught my eye in terms of style, concepts, and purely its execution.

Make sure to follow the work of Eduardo on Instagram.
Today was the first day back to school for students in Switzerland. It somehow reminds me of Japan because of how orderly, and structured was the students welcoming. I stumbled across the work of Minaminani Take who is an illustrator. based in Japan. She illustrates what I would call 'Life scenes', probably things that we would see across the world. But if you pay close attention to the details, you can tell it's Japan. Give it a look and make sure to check out the rest of her work on Behance.
I always enjoyed featuring projects that are well-thought-out and completely out of the ordinary.

Vipin Das is an artist and illustrator based from Bangalore, India. I wanted to share the work of Vipin in response to the recent 'climate change' events that have been happening all over the globe.

Make sure to follow more of Vipin's work via his Behance.
We have been hearing lots of buzz regarding Tokyo lately, it's probably related to the Olympic Summer Games! Sadly for us, there is almost no way to be able to watch any of it live (Europe!) But as an encouragement, I stumbled across the work of Romain Trystram is an art director and illustrator from Agadir, Morocco. We are huge fans of Romain's incredible skills to create wonderful illustrations filled with colors and lots of vibrant colors. He released a new series titled: 'Tokyo Mirages' and man oh man.
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.
It's been quite a while since I last spent time looking for inspiration on Dribbble. Not to brag but things are most or less the same which is unfortunate, to be honest. But on the good side, I stumbled across the work of Isaac LeFever, which by the way is a badass name to start with. Isaac is an art director & illustrator based in Seattle, WA, USA. After browsing through his work, I have a huge fan of the overall visual style.
It's been a little while I haven't looked for 'Cyberpunk Inspiration' and I was surprised by the amount of love this era is still getting all the time. Let's admit it's the best decade ever!

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.
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.
Keeping with my inspirational search of visual delight, I stumbled across the work of Gamal Assy, a graphic designer based in Mansoura, Egypt. He worked with a music artist named Abo Sahar to conceptualize its new album cover and visual direction for his brand.

I really dig the style and direction that Gamal took, it's well crafted and I like the play on the novelty.

It's titled: 'The Sartorial Painting Collection' and it's basically a series of digitally drawn paintings of portraits and people in general that he founds through social media. I think it's lovely series whereas you look closer you will appreciate the details and process the entire canvas through its entity.
David Leutert is a illustrator & letterer based in Berlin, Germany. David has shared a really cool series of sketches titled: ' Travel Sketchbook', it's a series of where I am pretty sure it's taken from David's past traveling around the world.

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

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