Some weeks ago, while watching the Montreal Meets I remember that Fábio and James talked about watching Top Gun. Some of you may not know, but Top Gun is a 80's classic, I was even born when it came in to the cinemas, but I watched later and I must say it is really badass.
Simon Fernandes is an art director, designer and illustrator from Sao Paulo, Brazil with a really cool style, his portfolio has illustrations with different styles, from the very clean vectors of the Agua Viva artwork to the sort of retro style of the Copo poster. We were really impressed with his work and now we are sharing that with you ;) For more information about Simon Fernandes visit his Web site at http://www.simonfernandes.com/
ChewedKandi is the name of artist/designer Sharon Milne. She lives in the North East of England and has a passion for vector art. Sharon has been interviewed and featured on a variety of websites. She has recently began writing tutorials for VectorTuts+.

I have been playing with the Halftone filter in Photoshop for the past few weeks and trying different things we can do with it. I also discover the Width Tool in Illustrator CS 5 and it was a great surprise because now we have much more freedom when playing with strokes. So with these two things in mind I decided that I had to create an image using them, and then the idea of a design inspired in Roy Lichtenstein. There are quite a few tutorials showing how to create this type of image, but I decided to try it myself.
Cristiano Siqueira aka Cris Vector is one of the finest digital illustrators from Brazil, he has worked with clients from all over the globe, striking everyone with stunning illustrations. Here you can check out some of his latest work. Enjoy!

For six years he has worked with agencies in Warsaw and Hamburg. Currently, Jan focuses on illustration, apparel design and personal art projects. Simple yet sophisticated forms are the essence of his work. He juxtaposes and multiplies them bringing to life the complex and tricky compositions, spiced up with attention to detail. He usually limits color palette, operating within two or three tones.
I introduced Jurryt a couple of weeks ago, and with his previous feature, he has proven himself truly worthy of an interview. Aiden Kolh, a writer, photographer, and painter, sat down with Jurryt for quite an intense and eye-opening interview. Enjoy! Think positive, live day by day, set your goals and make sure you got the will to reach them. That is life at its best.
Jurryt Visser, born January 1989 in the Netherlands, began drawing at a very young age. People said he had an “eye” for the arts. In years to come, he would take a course in an effort to learn the finer points of graphic design. It fit him perfectly. He began to create digital art, improving with each piece. Always wanting to be unique, he found his own vector style, like many of our readers find their own individuality.
Sometime ago I ran into these, but didn't have the chance to post them. I found some super amazing vector art made by this dude at tstout.com, and I couldn't even find his name, which is a bummer. He's got a fantastic style, really worth taking a look! At first, I thought he did just regular pieces, but for our delight, he makes his own version of movie posters! Mad Max 2, Robocop and The Thing are just some of the ones he picked and did a great job.
Besides the regular names we know I haven't seen a good new vector artist in a while, that's why I was really surprised with the work of Ahmed, he creates great vectors so full of details that it's unbelievable. No wonder why he takes a month on each piece, check it out! All my artwork is created from start to finish on Photoshop CS3, using only a mouse, I create outlines using the Pentool provided then color. Some refer to it as a Vector, and others Vexel, eitherway it uses precise and accurate lines and shapes in order to create sharp artwork.
I was browsing around when I saw a couple vector portraits and I thought they were such good works that I had to make a selection, beautiful vector art takes a lot of skill and patience to get a good result like the ones you will see here, enjoy!
When you start a design job, you usually know which direction you're going to. You might want use nice textures, or maybe a script font. But when it comes to vectors, you might find great packs over the internet, just like the Designious ones. Among the great Vector sites out there, Designious is one of the best for sure. They've got these Mega Packs that are really great: Floral, Symbols, Vintage, Nature and Fashion vectors. They gently handed us 3 of the Mega Packs to giveaway one for 3 lucky guys!
Nothing like nice vector illustrations. Dale Edwin Murray, a London based graphic designer, illustrator and photographer, is an expert with some really cool illustrations and also amazing t-shirt graphics that you might be already familiar with. Check out Dale's site for more information and great inspiration. The url is: http://www.daleedwinmurray.com/
One of the best tools in Illustrator in my opinion is the Blend Tool. There are so many things we can do with the blend tool, mixing shapes, replacing the Spine path to create crazy forms. Also I try to learn how the real masters like Andy Gilmore create those fantastic pieces. I don't even know if he uses Illustrator but some of his artwork can be done with the Adobe vector app mixing with a bit of Adobe Photoshop.
When I first found out what vector graphics were, I was impressed (and I mean really impressed) by this artist. He's extremely talented, and makes very good artwork that would fit really well on your desktop. The bad news is that he stopped doing vectors in 2007.
Hai everybody, this is my first post for this blog. For this time, i just want to greet everybody by showing some vector arts from here (vector arts from Indonesian Deviant Artist). Hope you enjoy this n_n Lately i've seen many great vector arts from my country. Most of them inspired me, some of those looks funny with a nice composition, the others are nice with a few color. . For me those arts are cool and give me unique sense when see it,, wish you too :)
Vector art is one of my favourite technics of creating an image, but it takes time. Check out these cool vector artworks of cars. following by Bobbyrock following by ab6421
I found this tool on Digg a couple of days ago but I couldn’t use its service because of the “Digg Effect”. Everybody, that includes me, was trying to convert some bitmaps to vector with a tool called VectorMagic, the online tool for precision vectorization. VectorMagic is the result of a Stanford University Artificial Intelligence Laboratory research project by James Diebel and Jacob Norda.
Last week I was checking some old backups, like from 3 years ago and it was really cool because I found some crazy things that I had done in the past. Some I had even forgotten I had them, while others I was really willing to get them back and maybe use them again. One of these files is a Mini that I had created on Freehand, I think in 2004. I don’t know precisely when I did that.
Some weeks ago, I saw some photos of the new FIAT 500 car. I was very impressed, I really liked the design, the accessories, and pretty much everything else. So I decided to vectorize it. Fiat 500 marks the revival of one of the most iconic small-car designs in automotive history, a milestone in the Italian automaker's recuperation, and for buyers, an enticing new little runabout to add to the shopping list.
