Josh Freydkis My Heart

Illustration // Friday, August 01, 2014
If you know me, then you already know that one of the quickest ways to my heart is through some grotesquely aggressive, raw and unmannered line work- throw in some super saturated colors, maybe some nudity and a little gore and we're basically soul mates. Now all you have to do is turn that into an animated gif and I'll be your art slave for infinity. Thank you Josh Freydkis- you really get me.

Josh Courlas: Lurid Tales of Myth and Fancy

Illustration // Friday, August 01, 2014
Josh Courlas is a New York based illustrator/digital artist with a mysterious and noir approach to his darkly quiet renderings. We are loving his sense of myth and secrecy that come along with the narrative in his works.

Justin Gibbens' Spider-Birds

Illustration // Thursday, July 31, 2014
A master draftsman, Justin Gibbens was trained in both scientific illustration and traditional Chinese painting-a skill set that he employs in his zoological drawings. Gibbens' stylized and embellished beasts speak of evolution, mutation and biodiversity, and perhaps serve as cautionary tales and stand-ins for our anthropocentric selves. By lifting the formal conventions of classic natural science illustration, Gibbens imagines legendary and diabolical beasts through the lens of a 19th century field artist.

Michael Howard's Moving Portraits

Illustration // Thursday, July 31, 2014
Michael Howard is a London-based illustrator and blogger whose gorgeous cross-hatched portraits express an enormous wealth of emotion. Using his linework to create a sense of gesture and visual vibrations, Howard's images have motion even in their stillness. We love the unassuming depth in these characters.

Aitch's "Beautiful Us"

Illustration // Thursday, July 31, 2014
  Aitch the illustrator presents a beautiful series focusing on watercolor representations of body parts, bringing out the symbolic resonance of each portion.

Aitch has a wonderfully unique way of presenting human anatomy in more poetic visual terms.

Fall Deep with Marjolein Caljouw

Illustration // Thursday, July 31, 2014
'Ever since I could hold a pencil I loved to draw. I started reading very early and was attracted to books. I wrote my own stories and little poems with illustrations. I also have around 30 diaries and I used to draw in them too. To capture funny/sad/special moments and look at them from different perspectives...'

Amelie Barnathan Does Space Disco

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 31, 2014
Amelie Barnathan has created a series of artworks for Forage Press dedicated to the musical movement of "Space Disco," a genre of music she calls "a comet in the history of music and one of the coolest and tackiest eighties movements ever." Forage Press is a publication that celebrates the union of visual art and music, featuring an eclectic mix of creative minds who love both of these crucial art forms. Barnathan's exploration of Space Disco depicts the merging of disco music with all that is "futuristic"--robots, cosmic sounds, intergalactic themes. The costumes of these Space Disco bands followed suit, as reflected in these funky, bizarre drawings. 

Let's Get Weird with Sasha Vinogradova

Illustration // Wednesday, July 30, 2014
We're loving this psychotropic series of vividly rendered fungi from Los Angeles based digital illustrator Sasha Vinogradova. It seems only appropriate that the clusters of mushrooms were drawn out in this lush palette of super saturated psychedelic hues. Indulge your senses.
