Yule Log 2.0 -> Artist Project

Notes from site: “Yule Log 2.0 re-imagines the traditional Yule Log through a collection of short films by illustrators, animators, directors, and creative coders. First televised in 1966 by WPIX-TV as a gift to viewers, the Log has since burned itself into our hearts.”

Eiko Ojala -> Vertical Landscape

The above “Vertical Landscape” was created by graphic artist Eiko Ojala, from Tallinn, Estonia. It’s simple but sophisticated nature caught my eye while browsing through projects on behance.net. I really enjoy his playful cut paper technique, combined with illustration. Many more quality projects to be seen on Eiko Ojala’s portfolio site via the link below.

Fake Vintage Posters -> Juan Molinet

Chaos Crew -> The Tattooed Poster

Notes from Site:

“In a celebration of some of 2011′s most newsworthy events, Munich’s Chaos Crew Tattoo Studio created a massive poster that shows the true art of tattooing by using a large piece of calfskin. By using the skin instead of creating an image and transferring the work to paper, the integrity of the original […]

DJBroadcast 52 – Robot Illustration from Super Silo on Vimeo.

I recently came across this very entertaining timelapse photoshop illustration by Super Silo (Dutch designer, Martijn van Dam) on ilovenewwork.com. Super impressive, and fun to follow. Especially if you’re the type that gets into the fancy photoshop maneuvers.

twistcone -> Monster Coloring Book

Monster Coloring Book from twistcone on Vimeo.

How simple is this idea? Monsters and coloring are pretty much the definition of fun if you ask me. Great to distract the kiddos on your next road trip, I know my nephews would dig this. Nice illustration work, lot’s of fun colors and tools as well…

Notes from Vimeo:

“We’re […]

SpongeBob -> Clothing Graphics

It’s Friday. I figured that simple fact warrants a post that is all about fun and playfulness, as I rarely do post about “fun and playfulness”. Yes, in air quotes even. This fine rendering of a high-design SpongeBob SquarePants is coming from an agency in Nottingham, London called ‘Studio Output’.  Their site is very much […]

Musically Inspired Album Covers -> Simon Page

I came  across some fairly new works by Simon Page on his Flickr stream yesterday, which then led me to his Behance page. Apparently, he’s been working hard on a lot of album covers. The above covers were all inspired by ‘simply listening to the music’, as he states on his Behance project page. The […]
