Rubens Cantuni

March 24, 2011 | by admin in illustration

The illustrations at Tokyo Candies are like a candy-coated dream, suggesting stories that are not quite of this world. With an extreme mix of opposite concepts, Rubens Cantuni has shaped an unorthodox collection of bold vector illustrations that are visually intriguing. It is this contrast of cute and evil that makes his work so appealing. Of course, the sexy, chubby girls are his most identifiable characters thus far. The point is to arouse a feeling of surprise, curiosity or hilarity in the spectator. If you look at one of his works, and you think “Why? Why is it like that?,” then he has made his point.

Jenny Meilihove

March 23, 2011 | by admin in illustration

Meet Jenny Meilihove of My Tiny World. She is a freelance illustrator living in Tel Aviv, in a small room with a big table and two big windows where she can see a piece of sky and trees, sometimes a cloud passing by… sometimes a bird… and most of the time you can find her drawing or making tiny dolls.

She wants her artworks to bring happiness to everyone. She want people to forget about all the troubles they have, and emotionally participate in the pleasant situations that she captures in her works. She thinks that in order to be happy, we don’t need much. The tiny uplifting things that each of us can easily find in our daily life can make us very happy, if we think seriously about for just a moment, and without any effort (like giving a big big hug to a tiny cat, or to imagine your dream comes true)… We just need to remember to dream, when we still do another and important things.

Zutto

March 22, 2011 | by admin in illustration

Zutto is a self-taught vector freelance illustrator based in Russia who sees the unusual in usual things. Her illustrations are full of vibrant colors, fantasy characters and dreamy scenes. She describes her art as being small worlds that appear in her head and are not not easily expressed in words. Like most successful illustrators, she relies on the Moleskine sketchbook for archiving basic abstract ideas before diving into the digital world. Once at the computer, those sketchbook ideas continue to evolve and grow into fantastic universes in the empire called Zuttoworld.

See more of Zutto’s fascinating works of art at the Flickr gallery.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Y’all!

March 17, 2011 | by admin in uncategorized

Being a former Savannian, I always take time to check out the Savannah St. Patrick’s Day revelry streaming live at SavannahNow or WSAV TV. This year, because the holiday falls on a Thursday and the weather is so beautiful, I imagine there will be a record number of tourists that will continue the celebration all the way through the weekend!

May you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows your dead.
- an Irish toast

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!

Museum of Modern Tweets

March 11, 2011 | by admin in illustration

An idea so clever, many illustrators are probably wishing they had thought of it first! At the Museum of Modern Tweets, artist Odessa Begay uses celebrity tweets as inspiration for some wonderfully random illustrations that will make you laugh out loud. Each one even includes the original mundane tweet—typos and all—to show the inspiration for the illustration.

I think we’d all love to know if any of the featured celebrities have purchased a print from the Etsy shop!

Triian

March 9, 2011 | by admin in jewelry

Working with another artist is similar to a musical collaboration. The reward of a successful collaboration is a thing that cannot be produced by either of the artists working alone.

Trisha Brookbank and Brian Burkhardt are talented sculptors who joined their ideas and skills to create the Triian line of jewelry. They hand-fabricate, sand, polish and adorn their one-of-a-kind stone creations with Swarovski crystals. Constructed solely from synthetic and reclaimed materials, these Modern Era Gems are genuinely authentic yet extremely lightweight. Triian offers something special, using their shared vision to synthesize nature through their own brand of gemological research.

At the 2010 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, their jewelry stole the show at the V Del Sol event. Viewers were so blown away by the Triian Burbank baubles that they were deemed “out of this world, chunky, fun, edgy, cool, sophisticated, surprisingly lightweight, and wearable.”

Mischief Champion

March 8, 2011 | by admin in illustration

Mischief Champion is a collection of simple line drawings from German artist Katrin Hagen that are based on every day experiences and thoughts. Sometimes harsh, sometimes silly—other times, they’re quite insane. Her wry, insightful sense of humor often pokes fun at uncomfortable situations. And with regard to that topic, you just can’t help but laugh!

My Dead Pony

March 4, 2011 | by admin in illustration

Raphaël Vicenzi, aka mydeadpony, is a self-taught illustrator that lives in Brussels, Belgium. His work has been featured at Computer Arts, Advanced Photoshop and others. His distinctive style is a mix of soft and delicate lines. I love the expressive line quality that searches for the essence of the subject—and is sometimes left unfinished. This dynamic kind of drawing combined with a sense of melancholy makes one feel as though he is spontaneously thinking aloud to the audience.
