CHRIS PARRADO ILLUSTRATION

Illustration // Wednesday, December 26, 2012
'Chris Parrado is 23 years old a Colombian Illustrator. Tired of the advertising world has decided to be a worker without tagline, who composed for tools and graphite flashes has been responsible for taking the complicated task of capturing moments that other people inadvertently omitted, perhaps to go lost in the saturation distressing contemporary world. The situations and characters in his works appear to be small frames taken from everyday life...

Barney Marquez's Character Illustrations

Illustration // Monday, December 24, 2012
Amazing character sketches and illustrations from the talented Barney Marquez. With a refined style, Barney doodles and draws people of all shapes, sizes and trades wherever he goes. We're including some of his more refined works, but his sketchbook illustrations are incredible as well. Humorous, svelte and witty portrayals of every kind of person imaginable.

Illustration // Monday, December 24, 2012
Stark, sultry portraits of mysterious and iconic women from Greece's own Olga Vercholamova. I have to admit I don't know much about this fashion focused artist and illustrator but I'm loving what I see. Gorgeous use of contrast and negative space in her glamorous renderings of luxe females.

The Illustrations of Grace Molteni

Illustration // Sunday, December 23, 2012
Grace Molteni defines her illustration work as 'where pretty gets gritty,' and it couldn't hold more true. In her illustrations, emotional excerpts of text are mixed and matched with graphically designed portraits of youth. There is a certain angst that is apparent in her work, scratching it's way out through her traditional and digital media.

Illustration // Friday, December 21, 2012
'If my previous series, called 'Corpses Esquicio' explores abjection in the body, because the instinctive reactions of rejection against that which threatens our human integrity, in this series 'Cadere Innocens', this same notion applies to everything that is reminiscent of childhood. However, this time this is achieved through the evocation of certain objects, different symbols and colors that are encoded in images that we interpret as corresponding to the sacred universe...

Gustave Doré’s Engravings of the Great Flood

Illustration // Friday, December 21, 2012
Perhaps one of the greatest masters of illustrating deep dark subject matter with morbid undertones is Gustave Doré, a French artist, engraver, illustrator and sculptor who passed in 1883. His depictions of "The Flood,", formed the frontispiece of Doré's illustrated bible. Doré, who also created famous images for the illustrated edition of Dante's Divine Comedy, frequently depicted his subjects under profound suffering. Very Apocalypse appropriate.
