Illustration // Wednesday, August 07, 2013
Tyler Stout and Mondo are releasing a limited edition vinyl release of a compilation of selections from five different Studio Ghibli films, featuring performances form the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. The artwork depicts characters from Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, The Cat Returns and My Neighbors the Yamadas. The artwork remains very closely true to the original art produced by Studio Ghibli, but we love the way Stout has designed these illustrations in honor of the beautiful films.

Mirai Mizue's A Long Day of Timbre

Illustration // Monday, August 05, 2013
Mirai Mizue was born in 1981 in Tokyo and studied animation at Tama Arts University. He is representative of a budding generation of independent Japanese animators who are taking the artform into new territories of abstraction and eccentricity. With an unabating affection for cells and their strange microscopic behaviors, Mizue uses their mutative powers in every frame as they flow in and out of eachother in rhythmical patterns, eventually overtaking the screen in a strange and hypnotic cellular ballet.

Masahiko Saga's Old World Artistry

Illustration // Monday, August 05, 2013
Based in Kyoto, Japan, Masahiko Saga brings an old world sensibility to his contemporary computer generated works, stylistically fusing the art of ukiyo-e, or Japanese woodblock prints, with the modern technology of digital illustration. With one foot in the past and the other placed firmly in the present, Saga's vibrant and complex pieces employ traditional compositions and symbolism with a fresh twist, utilizing the crispness of detail afforded by programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to enhance the sumptuous content of his work and essentially blur the lines between old world craftsmanship and present-day art-making methods.

The Dark Whimsy of Fuco Ueda

Illustration // Monday, August 05, 2013
Born in Japan in 1979, Fuco Ueda graduated from the Tokyo Polytechnic University of Arts Graduate School in 2003. Her fanciful and surrealistic paintings are rendered in acrylics and powdered mineral pigments on paper, cloth, and wood, depicting sprightly young girls in fantastic abstract worlds surrounded by vibrantly colored flora and fauna of every shape and size. Her whimsical pieces seem to capture the chimerical sensations of a vivid afternoon daydream, where enigmatic visions are suspended in the floating spaces of the unconscious mind. Ueda has been showing her work in Japan and in the USA since 2000, and she is currently living in Tokyo, Japan.

Cartoon Erotica by Reeg

Erotica // Monday, August 05, 2013
Cartoon sass meets real-life sex appeal in the work of London-based artist and designer Ray Edwards, aka REEG. Reminiscent of an old-school animation style ala Max Fleischer and Ub Iwerks, Edwards' illustrations are both classically cheeky and sexually provocative, a combination that delights the inner child as much as it titillates the seasoned adult.
