Chris Silver's Portrait Process

Illustration // Thursday, December 06, 2012
'I found that soft wax was a wonderful way to blend tones, it softens the work and has a vague quality about it. Start off by working with pencils, spill your tea over it, wait for it to dry then work into it with soft wax. Scratching into the wax creates highlights, which you will be able to see on some parts of the hair. Wax is really fun but so messy so be prepared, I would also suggest working with different colours...'

Baervon Pappe is an illustrator with a goal in mind, to explore every street in Berlin and document her findings via adorable collaged drawings, renderings and illustrations. Often times this creative output reflects direct representations of buildings and monuments, while other times its the smaller things that catch her eye, like that little squirrel she saw.

Ed Savage's Comics

Illustration // Thursday, December 06, 2012
The comics of Ed Savage seem to start out mundane and innocent, but somehow, unexpectedly, always end in a bloodbath of fantastical pain and gore. I'm not sure what this all means but I kind of like it. Perfectly fitting for an artist with the last name of Savage- well done Ed. Be sure to check out the rest of his illustration portfolio as well- full of treasures.

An Animation by Rickard Bengtsson

Illustration // Tuesday, December 04, 2012
'I've been a big fan of music by the great composer Ludovico Einaudi for a long time. About 2 years ago I found this great, very different and mysterious track of his. After searching for it I couldn't find any info on it. Who are the people, where is it from? Which just made me even more interested and right after hearing it for the first time I knew I had to make an animation for it. It was a project that has always been in the back of  my mind and hasnt changed a whole lot since day 1.'
