The Artwork of Mika Nitta

Illustration // Wednesday, December 05, 2012
Amazing illustrative work by the Japanese artist Mika Nitta that I know nothing about. However, with this kind of intricacy, attention to detail and the solid composition and palette that she portrays in her work, all you need to know is that it speaks for itself. Beautiful new find, keep it up young one.

David Sauceda: Membrane Series

Illustration // Wednesday, December 05, 2012
'This project explores the concept of identity as a membrane, intangible and invisible, outside the physical body, being the filter of information between the environment and the individual's psychological self. The membrane is in a constant state of change and adaptability, leading to the development of an identity.The awareness of that conception of the individual as such, is a collective process that is not finite, but is in a constant state of development and malleability.'

An Animation by Rickard Bengtsson

Illustration // Tuesday, December 04, 2012
'I've been a big fan of music by the great composer Ludovico Einaudi for a long time. About 2 years ago I found this great, very different and mysterious track of his. After searching for it I couldn't find any info on it. Who are the people, where is it from? Which just made me even more interested and right after hearing it for the first time I knew I had to make an animation for it. It was a project that has always been in the back of  my mind and hasnt changed a whole lot since day 1.'  

The Illustration Work of Ellie Andrews

Illustration // Tuesday, December 04, 2012
Central to Ellie's work is the balance between bold sections of color and intricate detail, creating a blend of hand drawn shapes with geometric form. Inspirations allude to textile design, marine biology and 90's teen culture. Ellie enjoys drawing the most, and shows interest in subject matter by making it look fun on paper.  Ellie lives and works in South East London and studied Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts.

The Work of Eric Petersen

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 04, 2012
'My style is influenced by instructional graphics and the look of vintage comics of the 1940s. I draw uniform lines on a computer to strip away some of the human element and expressive quality seen in non-digital work. I use perspective and unnatural colors to set up a voyeuristic feeling and create an unsettling mood. I am interested in the combination of a purely functional illustration style with an emotional scene.' Eric Petersen
