Top 20 Alex Pardee Works

Top List // Friday, July 27, 2012
Alex Pardee went to my high school's rival school. In saying that, I really wish I had some sort of Varsity Blues like story to tell you, but I really don't; I just wanted to make anecdote to lead this list of our Top 20 Alex Pardee paintings...

The Work of Edward Kinsella

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
We have posted about St. Louis-born artist Edward Kinsella III on the site before, but we just saw that he posted a series of new works that we think are quite good. Kinsella graduated from Ringling School of Art and Design in 2006 and attended two summers of the Illustration Academy to achieve the level of cohesiveness that his craft displays today. Some of these works are on display at Ghostprint Gallery in Richmond, Virginia through Saturday, July 28.

Alternate Mickeys by Ward Kimball

Illustration // Friday, July 27, 2012
  'Ward’s the one man who works for me I call a genius,' Walt Disney once noted. Ward Kimball was a core animator at the Walt Disney Company between the 1930s and 1970s and was especially noted for his wilder animation style. That eccentricity is visible here in one of Ward's model sheets, where Mickey is drawn in a variety of guises ranging from a flasher to Spielberg's E.T.

"Nest" by Michael Ruocco

  'A little bird builds a nest... but has a bit of a problem.' Nest is a short but sweet animation by New York animator Michael Ruocco. Simplicity goes a long way.

Narrative Illustrations by Patrick O’Leary

Illustration // Thursday, July 26, 2012
"I started out a few years ago after graduating from Loughborough University with a BA in Illustration and have since worked for the likes of Radio Times, Wired and Anorak. The work itself always tries to communicate in as concise a way as possible and often try to use visual metaphors or in jokes to convey a message."

Animated Gifs by Mimi Leung

Illustration // Thursday, July 26, 2012
Check out these colorful & fun animated gifs brought to you from the hand of Mimi Leung. Mimi says of her work, "I dream up frenetic compositions and think of funny/gross things to draw using pen, paper and paint. Sometimes, I colour digitally in Photoshop but nothing beats using a fine brush to paint all the tiny details and leaving fine white lines between blocks of colour. I love the effect and find the whole process really satisfying."
