We are fan of vector illustrations, especially because of the clean lines and sometimes geometric shapes. Lately we've been noticing more and more designers experimenting with vectors mixed with textures. The cool thing about this is that it gives an incredible style to the illustrations, and when you add to that some super creative ideas you will probably have something similar to the work of Justin Mezzell. I am now a huge fan of Justin, his work is nothing less than amazing. It brings me back some sort of this retro/futuristic vibe.
The first time we got in contact with Dan Matutina was while checking Dribbble. With an incredible style mixing vectors with textures and polygons, Dan has come up with a series of simply amazing illustrations, our favorites of course are the ones about video-games. I'm Dan Matutina, a designer and illustrator based in the Philippines. My illustration style is a mix of handmade & digital, clean & dirty, old & modern aesthetics.
One of the new features of Pixelmator 2 is the vector tools. You can create primitve shapes like rectangles, triangles, ellipses and edit them like in Illustrator or using paths in Photoshop. I decided to give it a try and create a poster using some impossible structures like Escher. So in this tutorial I will show you how to create a poster using the vector tool in Pixelmator mixed with some textures and basic painting tools. The whole process won't take you more than 45 minutes and I am sure you will like the outcome.

I was browsing around the web searching for my daily inspiration images, something that I do everyday, when I bumped into Bradley Sharp's work and really liked it. The image that got my attention was the first one from this selection, which by the way is already my new desktop wallpaper. Since I liked the style and the idea from that one image I decided to check out his portfolio for more stuff and noticed that it was pretty cool to show here to you. His illustrations/vectors are really stylish.

Today is the Vector day, we have the 5 great vector packs giveaway from Designious and now we feature the fantastic work of Mel Marcelo, an artist and illustrator living in Southern California. The first time I saw his work was in one of those oackley ads and I was amazed by the quality of the illustrations.
I love vector images, in special floral. We simply can do all sorts of things with them. I remember in the past, it was very hard to get nice vector packs, back in the day when I used to use Corel Draw 6 or 8 I think. Now, however we have nice vector packs available and for a very affordable price, like the Designious Vector Packs.
