Olga Vercholamova's Queen

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.

Kikyz1313's Cadere Innocens

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.

Steve McGhee's Natural Disasters

Illustration // Friday, December 21, 2012
As a digital artist focusing on art that reflects The End of Days and natural disasters, Steve McGhee has this to say about his images, 'My work reflects a personal interest in things human beings have little or no control over. We walk through life feeling like we’re indestructible, while in reality, we’re just the opposite...

Andres Guzman's Apocalyptic Illustrations

Illustration // Friday, December 21, 2012
Well, here we are- The End of the World. Supposedly. If it isn't panning out quite like you'd expected (yet) you're just going to have to use your imagination. With the help of artist and illustrator Andres Guzman, we can get a little visual inspiration as to what this grand Apocalypse may look like. Andres spent most of his youth in Denver, Colorado but is originally from Lima, Peru. He graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art + Design where I majored in illustration and took much interest in graphic design.

Matt Caputo's Partytime!!

Illustration // Thursday, December 20, 2012
The 27 year-old artist Matt Caputo uses pen and ink to create witty, humorous illustrations that combine an array of disparate elements in unexpected ways. “In a way I’d say my work is comedic and more pleasant than anything else. It’s a lot of animals and lightheartedness. I guess I had a pretty wild imagination as a kid and spent as much time as I could drawing,” he says...
