Art in motion – Two artists, One vision.

As anyone who is a regular visitor here will know, I love to watch an artist at work. I find watching someone creating a piece of art, illustration, advertising and anything else to be just poetry in motion and very inspiring. This video of two artists called Supakitch and Koralie is just amazing to watch.

It starts off a little slow, but the more you watch the more you appreciate their undoubted talent and attention to detail. Enjoy.

All forms of creativity inspire me

I love design for being able to make you smile. The dinosaur packaging below is a wonderful example of this. A simple line on the label of GRRR! Just says it all, fantastic! I also love in today’s collection the vampire weekend poster for New York. Two buildings perfectly placed on a red background leaves you clearly understanding what it’s for.

I have a couple more arabic calligraphy examples from Wassim Shawkat, (Check out the environmental section on his website) who really has created some beautiful images with his use of arabic type. Hope this inspires you today. Have a creative day.

Show the world what your made of

I used to find it almost a curse that I loved so many different disciplines of art. Let me explain, I enjoy creating so much that I would be so confused as to what medium to use that I would end up doing nothing or be distracted when doing one thing, like a painting, that I could be doing something else. Fortunately as I have grown older I see it as a blessing and can really focus on one thing. Also it gives me a great opportunity to combine all different types of things. I hope todays collection sparks you into doing something creative. Feel free to share it on my gmail (alanfirmin@gmail.com) and I will include it here.

I find todays collection interesting because it shows how powerful a good portrait can be. When I looked at the preview of this post the picture literally just jumped out and demanded attention. Incredible when you consider the colours and designs that are surrounding it. I love it. Have a creative day.

The colourful and unique style of Anna Anjos

Brazilian Graphic Designer and illustrator Anna Anjos has a very unique style to her work. Vibrant and colorful the details she includes are just so beautiful. I like the depth to these illustrations and any visual that has you looking again and again to see new things will always be a winner in my book.

Oil on wood; Meet imagination and talent.

The texture Brian gets into his paintings is just beautiful. An imagination that matches his talent with a brush truly is a thing of wonder. I came across Brian Despain a short while ago and I feel he has such unique paintings that I was compelled to share them.

Showing off celebrities in all their glory

I first came across David during his time as an editorial cartoonist as that s a huge passion for me. But now he is well established and doing extremely well. Be sure to check out his website to see all of his work.

Sometimes work waits to be appreciated; Others jump off the page and demand it.

You have probably seen his stunning images gracing many a magazine stand or being used by bloggers all over the world celebrating the unique style that he has made his own. By deconstructing visuals ad rebuilding them with a mix of vector illustration and photoshop skills the end result is nothing short of spectacular.

Graphic and expressive the detail taken on the multiple layering within his work is remarkable and deserves to be applauded at every opportunity. Alberto Sereso is a illustrator/graphic designer from Italy. You can check out the rest of the guys work here is all its glorious color and detail. Click on any image to see a bigger view.
