It is tough to form a quick opinion on the Superhero illustrations by William Wray; expressionism will do that for you. These are superheroes no doubt, but they are presented in more of a normal human setting. They are almost cosplayers, except that they are superheroes.
Viktor Hertz is a Swedish graphic designer and artist who happens to create very intriguing images. If that name sounds familiar, it might be because his projects like the honest logos, movie pictograms, and even the music pictograms we’re talking of here have been widely noticed and appreciated. Several updates have been made to the pictogram music posters since we first saw them, so here’s the updated set. We kind of like the Highway to Hell poster. It is subtle, and it is quite direct. Several of these images are available as T-shirts and posters at the artist’s store on RedBubble.
Street Fighter characters are pretty awesome in their prime; filled with power, strength and skill, they do command some sort of respect. Eventually though, this lifestyle must take a toll on the human, tough as they might be. This series by artist and illustrator Arman Akopian takes a look at what Street Fighter characters would be after their prime, and yes, the picture isn’t rosy. Turns out, even the toughest and grittiest of these warriors carry the marks of their trouble and their pain. Some made it out with their life and sanity, some just didn’t.
Artist Fokenstal has created replicas of weapons, armor and items from Skyrim. Coming straight out of the Elder Scrolls, the weapons and gear seem to be painstakingly created and elaborate. The good news is that you can buy these goodies at the artist’s shop.
In the illustrations of Christopher Ables, the classic bad guys from Disney and Harry Potter universe get to speak a few words of their wisdom. The odd one out is probably Severus Snape, who spent most of his career being the bad guy, only for us to later find out that he was the good guy all along! But that can wait because we’re too irritated to see Dolores Umbridge, though she should be probably killing “politeness,” rather than “kindness.”
Incredible and amazing would be understatements to use in describing this project. Artist and filmmaker Anthony Cerniello shows the nearly imperceptible process of aging through this mind blowing video. The clip is titled Danielle, possibly as a reference to Anthony’s friend who plays a very important role in the creation of the video. At Thanksgiving last year, Anthony was with his friend Danielle’s family where photographer Keith Sirchio shot portraits of her youngest cousins through to her oldest relatives.
Those boxes that burp soap are for the tasteless. The cultured ones go the classy road and have artsy statues that burp out soap for them. Designs by Korean artist Meekyoung Shin give bathrooms a classier look by replacing conventional soap dispensers with sculptures. Called Toilet Project, the set includes sculptures from western and eastern cultures. These statues are located in 16 museums and galleries across the UK, and visitors are encouraged to use the statues to wash their hands.
We are fans of the stunning looks of the Lamborghini Aventador, we’re even more enamored by someone going the impressive route and crafting a supercar entirely out of paper. Seattle based artist Taras Lesko crafted this full scale Lamborghini Aventador using only paper. The paparecraft supercar has been styled in the looks of a police interceptor and christened with the name Aventador A-E2. Frame of the car is built on thick cardboard for support, then given shape with printed sheets of E2 architectural paper (hence the name).
Artist Robert Jiménez painted comic book characters on to classic LP record album covers. In the words of the artist:
I was asked to participate in a group art show, ANALOG ART at Sweat Records in Miami. The show is a collection of painted vinyl LP’s. I had so much fun doing it that I worked on a few more. I hope to have a selection of these available at Florida Supercon.
Landscape photographer Reuben Wu has a talent for capturing absolutely stunning images, in some of which our very own planet seems transformed into an alien land, or a world imagined in surrealism. Of course, much of these are wonders of the camera and the landscapes of earth, captured dramatically and in all their glory by the artist. The images you see here are from the set Ultima Esperanza.
