Mateusz Urbanowicz is back with more of his Tokyo Storefonts, a series of illustrations that would imagine a creative and unique shops on the streets of Tokyo. We have featured his first series on abdz. a few years back, it's really great to see a comeback that would carry the same appealing, charming and detailed results. Each storefront shares its own story, from an optician's salon, typewriter, photo studio, and more.
Watercolor is such a beautiful and intricate technique. I'm always taken away by the subtlety of watercolor pieces. It is like artists have a magic wand and create these beautiful stories with their work. And if you like to imagine what is behind an artwork, you will probably think that Kseniia Yeromenko is always hungry or always thinking about food. She creates amazing watercolor pieces that will certainly make you hungry.
Mateusz Urbanowicz aka. Matto, is a very talented illustrator and digital designer. Born and raised in Silesia, Poland, Matto currently lives in Tokyo. The artist has a lot of beautiful artworks on his portfolio. But one series of illustrations he created really caught my attention. Tokyo Storefront series is a collection of exquisite watercolor pieces showcasing Tokyo shops. What is so unique about it is that Matto turns the busy life of Tokyo into delicate illustrations.

It's just mind blowing to find artworks so beautiful that you might think it was done digitally. It tends to be very tricky to find amazingly done watercolor pieces, but for Russian artist Ashiya it's no problem at all. She paints artworks that are too good to be true.

There's an unique organic beauty in watercolor artworks that really strikes me. You can't really see brush strokes... all you can see is how the water and ink settled down in the end. It's beautiful. Anna Bjørdal, an artist from Norway, paints splendid watercolor pieces you should really see. These are only a handful of her work. For more of it, please visit her at Instagram! I hope you enjoy these. Cheers! ;)
I make a daily habit of checking the amazing site HonestlyWTF for inspiration and fell in love with their recent post showcasing the fanciful work of Alice Lindstrom. Alice is an incredibly talented Melbourne-based artist and book maker who works primarily in paper collage as well as using watercolor and digital design. From her paper collage portrayal of Melbourne street style to collage commissions for weddings and birthdays, Alice's work is in a word, splendid.
It's been such a long time since the last post about watercolor illustrations. I am a huge fan of this style and technique going so far as trying to recreate this type of illustration in Photoshop, but nothing beats the real deal, at least till now. It looks like the iPad Pro might have the tech to accomplish that digitally, so let's wait and see, but meanwhile check out the amazing work of Amandine Comte. For more information about Amandine check out http://www.lartcommeunique.fr/

Watercolor is definitely one of the most awesome techniques of illustration. I find truly amazing of how much control and precision artists have over their watered inks to form precise art.
Watercolor is surely one great illustration technique, and we've seen some great pieces from artists such as Mathiole and Lora. Today, we introduce you another great artist: Grzegorz Wróbel.
I have already created some tutorials about watercolor effects; however, I also want to create a workflow that is extremely simple but that produces a beautiful result. Therefore, I invented this tutorial, which uses only basic watercolor brushes, a photo, and a layer mask. This tutorial is part of a series of tutorials I have been writing for Pixelmator and posting over at http://www.pixelmator.com/learn/
Yesterday I went to a book store, and had a look at some great design and illustrations books. There, I found this great artist called Kareem Iliya, who makes some amazing fashion watercolor illustrations, pretty beautiful, so I just had to find her portfolio once I got home.
I've probably said it before, but watercolor is definetely one of the greatest techniques of painting there is! It's truly incredible what a good illustration will do with it... so I thought it would be cool to find some watercolor illustrations of Super heroes and villains.
One style that really has caught me lately is watercolor! I find those painting of such a great taste that I cannot express how much I like it. We've seen some artists doing some great work on watercolor, such as Mathiole, and I found a girl artist who is just incredible! Her name is Lora and she's probably British because of her website url (.co.uk). There's not much information on her DeviantART account, and all we can say is that she pretty much does some seriously cool watercolor paintings. And, she's cute...
Yesterday I was chatting with one of my professors from college and that brought me back some quite nice memories. Ana Maldonado taught me very important things about design workflow and presentation that I have been using since then. But we also talked about some of her new illustrations, which by the way, are beautiful. All the paintings are done with Indian Ink, watercolor and acid free paper. What is really cool is the use of colors and subjects with a big influence of the indian and western culture.
Last year I wrote a Photoshop tutorial for PSDTUTS showing how to create a very nice design using watercolor brushes. It was inspired by the work of guys such as Bruno Fujii, Margot Mace, Raphaël of My Dead Pony and Stina Person.
If you are looking for Illustrations with an unique style , then I got the right artist for you. Hannah Stouffer combines cool Illustrations with watercolor textures and the results are awesome. Los Angeles-based illustrator Hannah Stouffer finds a great deal of comfort in imagery- it's an admiration that is often times overwhelming. With an infatuation for icons and images that reflect and categorize historical eras, genres and subcultures, her work is an opulent, elegant and beautifully intricate mixture of illustration and design.
