Here’s some of my latest paintings using the iPad and Procreate.
I’m excited to be learning the ins and outs of Illustrator. I’m particularly fascinated with Gradient Mesh drawings. Trying to create photo-realistic images from meshes of gradients. I’m still a noob at it, but have gotten some pretty nice results so far. Here’s a gallery of some of my first works.
This guy uses limitations, mistakes, and destruction to create his artwork. For instance building a face out of matches and then lighting it on fire or by forcing decay on a banana peel to draw a picture on it. Fascinating ideas to help with any creative venture.
Tang Yau Hoong uses negative space, comedy and surrealism to create fantastic artwork. Each piece is colorful and imaginative and blends simple elements into elegant surprises. Check out the Hoong’s website for several more images.
This girl zombie draws herself drawing herself drawing herself. Who knew zombies could draw so well?
Graphic designer, Mike Joyce, has created some absolutely spunky vintage style typographic posters for over 200 bands and concerts (just a few of which are pictured above). His retro style is influenced by his love of punk rock and swiss modernism. Each of his designs are cool as all get out. His posters are available in 3 different sizes, check them out at SWISSTED.
Da Vinci could write in Greek with one hand and Latin with the other at the same time. He also made a lot of interesting drawings like those posted above. I am really fascinated by his connection to Star Wars. For instance, his drawing “Study for the Head of Leda” (pictured above) bears a striking resemblance to princess Leah (Leda?). And his famous “Vitruvian Man” seems to have inspired “Storm Trooper Man”.
One is all of Johnny Depp’s characters. One is the Star Wars Last Supper. One is most of my favorite characters from film in one place.
Stefano Pedretti’s portraiture reminds me of cartoon characters. Pronounced chins, googly eyeballs, overbites, and distorted facial structures all combine to make some unique looking characters.
