Steve Cutts' Anti-capitalist Illustrations

Illustration // Tuesday, September 22, 2015
Since quitting his job with a firm that illustrated for companies such as Google and Reebok, Steve Cutts has turned a corner with his subject matter, critiquing the very systems which used to employ him. He is now a freelance illustrator, the bulk of his work critiquing the capitalist system, the plunder of the earth’s resources, and our tech-obsessed culture. 

The Fractal Paintings of Gustaf Lillestierna

Illustration // Monday, September 21, 2015
Gustaf Lillestierna is a Swedish artist who paints repetitive images of portraits, recreating a fractal effect through painstaking traditional means. This bizarre crossing of traditional and digital means defies the strictures of process. 

The Work of Violeta Hernandez

Illustration // Monday, September 21, 2015
Violeta Hernández was born in the city of Monterrey in Nuevo León, México. Graphic designer by practice and illustrator at heart, Violeta is one of those artists who can depict the female body in its overwhelming sensuality and mystery...

Jake Fried's New Hand-Drawn Animation: "Night Vision"

Illustration // Tuesday, September 15, 2015
We’ve posted before on Jake Fried’s drawings and animations and are thrilled that he’s created a new animation. Fried created the animation using only ink and white out (though in the past he’s incorporated coffee, collage, and gouache). The piece, “Night Vision,” is a trippy journey through drawings lost and created. He employs a mix of abstract imagery and reflections of the natural landscape, the animation eventually blinking out into stars.

Postcards from Fictional Locations of Wes Anderson Films

Illustration // Thursday, September 10, 2015
Manilla-based illustrator Mark Dingo Francisco has created a series of postcards, depicting scenes from Wes Anderson films. The meticulous illustrations depict settings such as the Darjeeling Limited train passing, the fireworks stand from Bottle Rocket, and the campsite from Moonrise Kingdom. In addition to the illustrated scenes, Francisco created, for each card, a unique “stamp” on the back.

BLOB, Cécile Dormeau's Illustrations of Quirky Women

Illustration // Wednesday, September 09, 2015
We adore Cécile Dormeau’s illustrations of women, imperfect forms and all. In an interview with Ignant, she said, "I am fascinated by all kind of girls with different body shapes... Whether that be frustrated girls, strong girls, gross girls, shy girls, idealized girls, girls who don’t care or girls who say 'fuck you' with a lovely smile, I try to play with their flaws and emotions with humor in a colorful and fun style." 

Anita Evelyn Kunz' Book, "Paintings"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 09, 2015
Canada-based painter and illustrator Anita Evelyn Kunz explores the intersection of human and animal, violence and care. She recently sent us a self-published book of her paintings—a collection of her watercolor and acrylic work—that reveals the intricate details of her sometimes-disturbing imagination. In one, a human holds her baby in a skin pouch on her belly. In another, a cascading series of humans and monkeys nitpick each others scalps until they bleed. 

The Work of Masumi Sakamoto

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 04, 2015
Osaka-born artist Masumi Sakamoto eliminates extra background in her paintings to emphasize the characteristics of the figures, striving to explore what lays beneath the skin. Posed like fashion models and pop stars, the androgynous children in her paintings are like the characters in fairy tales: far from reality. With her optimistic expressions, Sakamoto covers tough situations in modern society with beautiful colors and thoughtful compositions. We look forward to more work from this promising young artist.
