Animated Illustrations by Tara Dougans

Album Cover Illustration by xhxix





Often times I see great artwork online but the artist isn’t mentioned and it’s very hard to find out who made it.

Even with this one, although it’s a LP limited edition cover for Boris/Joe Volk. After some research I found what I was looking for.

The artist!

Xhxix is a Japanese artist who works on digital paintings with a lot of young men as his theme. It has something melodramatic, hopeless, sad but painted with all kind of colours mixed together, which gives it an odd feeling.

I love it.

Illustrated Calendar Ideas!


I don’t have a calendar at home.

The reason for that is…everytime I want to  buy one, I can only find really ugly calendars in the stores…(Am I the only one?)

But because I’m forgetting important birthdays of my friends and family, I want to have a calendar! So I thought: “I’m going to make one!”

So I was searching for some examples online. I want to share some nice calendars here. Maybe you can make one too! Or even collaborate with other illustrators/classmates!

If you made one, please share it with us!

About artist: Remi Adron is an artist from Paris. “So influenced by the American comics culture as by the photorealism movement or still the Renaissance period, Rémi Andron’s universe mixes iconic compositions with a detailed depiction, the purpose being to get closer to a natural depiction while keeping a drawn aspect. Working essentially in black and white, the technical tools which he uses are accessible to all (ball-point pen, graphite, ink) always in this will to return and sometimes to report a ” popular imaging ” which inspired him for a long time.”

GIFs and Illustrations by Michele Guidarini




La_Tristezza_Di_Essere_Michele_Guidarini Michele_Guidarini


Michele Guidarini was born in Grosseto (Tuscany – Italy) in 1981.

He studied commercial art before graduating at Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence. Thanks to his artistic studies, he came to the conclusion that the paintbrush wasn’t made for him. «I looked at my paintings, burdened with this damn oil tempera, the shiny colours, the different shades. Then my eye dropped on my sketchbooks. Dirty, greasy, rough/unpolished, covered in words without a sense. I understood that i had put all myself in these sketches, my whole world. And I closed with classical painting». The technique he uses today is a mixed media of pens, ink, Magic Markers on paper, spray and collage. He’s been expe- rimenting with tattoo on pig skin too. Inspired for his whole life by the works of Bacon and Goya, Michele Guidarini started following Low Brow attracted by the catchy aestetics: «I think as a graphic designer, so the image, the balance, the colours are really important for me. After the first glimpse of wonder, i found out that this artistic flow isn’t trivial at all and there is a lot more under the shiny colours, a whole universe of hidden meanings. It’s a reflection of the artist and the world in which we live in, a reflection of the soul, heart and pain». Rolling Stone Magazine and Tattoo Life introduced him as one of the greatest italian young talents, gathering around him the interest of the medias for this young artist that plays with shapes and icons and shows in his works an irony about love and death, sadness and elation, colours and black and white, drama and comedy.

Colorfull And Emotional Work by Hook Woojin

Robert Ball – Game Of Thrones Illustrations


Robert M. Ball, designer and illustrator living and working in London, was commissioned by a digital branding agency in New York – 360i, on behalf of HBO. The idea was to get everyone geared up for Season Four of Game of Thrones by producing some original content that worked as a reminder of the events of the first three seasons. Every day a new illustration would appear on www.beautifuldeath.com, until Season four, when a new illustration would appear a few days after each broadcast.
All these illustrations look great and I wondered how he get the job?
Robert M. Ball: “I pitched for the job, the brief was to create an illustration around a death in episode 1, the beheading of a deserter by Ned Stark. I think there’s two reasons not to show the characters too much – to avoid creating another ‘version’ of those characters so you have images that complement the TV series rather than contradict them, to act as a memory jog so the audience remembers the scene, rather than trying to replicate it. Secondly, if you catch an illustration for an episode you haven’t seen yet, by making them slightly oblique the episode won’t be immediately spoiled for you.”
Robert Ball concept illustrations Game of thrones
Here you can see the sketchfase of Robert M. Ball, tests for colour combinations and composition.
This is so interesting to see, don’t you think?
Robert M. Ball: “In the case of the sword and the river, those thumbnails were alternatives in my pitch to demonstrate that I had other ideas, to show that I had more than one thought! I would always supply at least two or three ideas per episode, with my preference, which would sometimes be added to by the guys at 360i – it was a very collaborative process.”

Brushstroke Fish by Bill Mayer


Bill_Mayer1 bill_Mayer2 Bill_Mayer3

I’m always amazed when artists can produce images with effortless brushstrokes.

Bill Mayer about these illustrations: ” Back from a long holiday at the cottage in Ontairio and trying to get things moving, including me. I was wondering if I could still draw anything. Tried out a few more of these little brush drawings…”

Well, even if you take a long break, you still got the skills Bill!
