James Julien's "Bruises"

Illustration // Tuesday, April 16, 2013
Jules Julien is an illustrator living and working in Paris. His series of digital illustrations called "Bruises" capture a sleek, graphic vision of the nominal bodily affliction. Using a strict palette of greys to denote features and hair, the bold red circles are emblematic of much more than bruises. These illustrations bring to mind visuals of national colors, the sun, flags and warnings, to name a few. The omission of eyes gives each drawing a mysterious factor. These illustrations are lovely and strange, framing Julien's work as that of a highly talented and thoughtful artist.   

James Jirat Patradoon Illustration

Illustration // Tuesday, April 16, 2013
James Jirat Patradoon is an australian artist and illustrator. He creates character-driven visual art, born of fictional worlds of borrowed imagery that act as distorted mirrors to our reality, mashed-up and remixed to create new stories. Inspired by the fashion and costume of black music, gangster rap, professional wrestling, sci-fi films, and superheroes. James' work is an irreverent take on the stoic nature of macho pop culture. His illustrations are intense, grimy, powerful and unmistakeably Patradoon. Patradoon has done work for Mishka, RVCA, MTV, Ray Ban, Diesel and Nike.   

Everything I Can See From Here

The quality of the short's storytelling and visual artistry is all the more impressive considering that  "Everything I Can See From Here" was created with no budget over the course of two years during the filmmakers' evenings, weekends, and days off.
