British illustrator Stuart Whitton does fantastic works with just a pencil, using wonderful shading techniques and detailed layering to create portraits, both for personal work and commercial endeavors. We like this piece in particular, a commission by German publication Zeit Magazine to create a portrait of fashion designer, Marc Jacobs.

Australia-based street artist, Shida, recently visited Austria where he collaborated with local heavyweight Nychos. The two different styles compliment each other well on this underpass wall. It has been a while since we have seen Nychos not dissect and separate his character into pieces.

The key for you to understand here with the work of James Nizam. In order to get these photographs, in order to create these wonderful light installations, James makes incisions into the structure of a house to manipulate sunlight into light sculptures. That's right, its the sun . . .

Obviously there is a great creative energy in Mexico City at the moment, and one of the artists that we really like in both the illustrative and Public Art realm is Smithe. The artist just posted a few new illustrations on his blog, and this one we especially enjoy. The best part? It will be available as a print soon. More works after the jump . . .
