Bora Baskan

Illustration // Thursday, April 19, 2012
Based in Istanbul, Turkey, illustrator and graphic designer Bora Baskan graduated with a degree in graphic design from Marmara University and has since worked as both a freelance artist and an art director. His abstract compositions synthesize elements of 20th century abstract and cubist art with a street-wise urban sensibility. "I tend to explain myself better with abstraction," says Baskan. "I feel that tangible images limit me."

Born in 1985, Quentin Duckit is a Lyon, France-based artist with a degree in Illustration and Cartooning from the Emile Cohl School of Art. Duckit's approach to image making changed forever after he discovered the art of printmaking, quickly mastering the techniques of screen printing, linocut, and woodblock.

Inside

Illustration // Thursday, April 19, 2012
Directed by Slovenian animator and director Rok Predin, "Inside" is a mesmerizing little video that was created through Trunk Animation studio using Cinema 4D and composited using After Effects. The animation's deceptively simple concept, peeling away the layers of objects to reveal a hidden and unexpected core, slowly builds a strange philosophical depth as its objects and revelations become more abstract and surreal.

In Malora's Dreams

Erotica // Thursday, April 19, 2012
Mysterious, dreamy work by the equally elusive artist and illustrator Malora. We couldn't find much info on the creator behind these soft, sensual works but we know that they appealed to our visual palette with their soft charm and lightly provocative moodiness.

Andy Rementer "Going Places" @ Ship of Fools, The Hague

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 19, 2012
We love how Ship of Fools describes Andy Rementer: "Andy Rementer is a creative person from USA." That is pretty much how it should be. Simple and to the point. It explains a lot to us, at least. Mr. Rementer just opened a solo show, Going Places, at The Hague gallery, featuring a series of gouache portraits, plants and typography work.

Loving these little expansive illustrated scenes full of tiny characters and action by Vikki Chu! Each drawing is like its own little storybook narrative, or full length movie! Rember Where's Waldo?? Vikki's adorable renderings bring us that same excitement and nostalgia from searching through our favorite childhood books.

Mathew Borrett Illustration

Illustration // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
'Born in 1972, I grew up in rural Ontario surrounded by horses and hay, and I'm inconveniently allergic to both. This didn't keep me from constructing elaborate hay forts and a bit of horse riding, but it meant that when the air was particularly heavy with pollen I'd more likely be holed up in my room drawing, building elaborate things with lego, and making primitive computer graphics on my Commodore 64.' Mathew Borrett

Drawings from the Hospital Bed

Illustration // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
There is an obvious antsy, excitable amount of energy and roughness in this short, graphic, slightly insane animation put together with drawings Tim O’Hern made while stuck in a hospital bed. Sometimes being at the mercy of your health isn't necessarily a bad thing, though from the looks of it things can get kind of maddening. Get well soon!

Justin Bartlett: Apparel for a cause

Illustration // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
The Black Ink Warlock, a.k.a. Justin Bartlett, applies boundless visual style to depictions of the arcane. His developed portfolio representing clients of various trades exposes an illustrative language often derived from the occult, where theology and religion meet strife. Recently, he put together a t-shirt design called "Treasure" with the help of Shirts and Destroy to help fund his sister's recent battle with cancer- all proceeds go towards alleviating medical costs, please support!
