White Rabbit

Back in the art school I had a brief for series of illustrations on Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. I’ve done 5 images in a style that was new for me. And since then I always had a desire to extend the series, but never had time and an impulse to start. So […]

Calligraphic Voices

Looking through great graphic novel about Batman “Arkham Asylum”, illustrated by genious Dave McKean, I discovered how beautifully and witty McKean introduces characters of the novel, using creative callighraphy. I think this is especially suitable there because all the characters of the book are so beautifully and frightfully mad, and you can see this in […]

Nod Young is Chinese graphic designer and illustrator based in Beijing, co-founder and creative director of Khaki Creative & Design. His works combine modern trends of design with traditional Chinese art.   More of Nod’s works at Flickr and my favorites are inside the post.    

Corcoise

I decided to share one of my favorite illustrator on Flickr – L Filipe dos Santos (aka Corcoise). He mostly draw skinny girls with big eyes and noses and this would be not enough for me to like the artist but for opposite effect. But Corcoise’s people are so lively, so perfect-unperfect that I love […]

Fiona Hewitt

Back from winter holidays I start sharing with you recent findings, inspiring goodies. British artist Fiona Hewitt is inspired by all things Chinese. And her recent illustrations express this affection, stylistically based on Chinese advertisements and packaging of the beginning of 20th century.

So here we have a post with 3 beautiful, unrelated but somehow connected pictures. Show Me the Vanilla Sky by Kanzaki Choi. Conquers the Dragon King by Yeoh Guan Hong […]
