Share: It would be hard to tell from these strikingly detailed animals but artist Iain Macarthur got his start drawing cartoon characters. Now he carries his sketchbook on the bus, to the cafe and everywhere else as he includes more realism and in this case pattern in his illustrations.

Here we have the work of a one man design studio called Creative Mints . The work that this guy churns out is good enough to force you into another career, but! all is not lost as Mike (the guy behind creative mints) is kind enough to run through his processes with shots of his sketches and various concepts, which you will find below. I have been keeping up to date with Mike (Creative Mints Mastermind) on Dribbble, within which he is a superstar ranking with 21,000+ followers so be sure to check him out on there!
Posted: 29th February 2012 by admin in Bizarre This is a series of photographs by German artist Martin Klimas of a bunch of porcelain fighting figures the moment of impact after being dropped (the sound of the crash sets off the camera). It makes it look like the little figures are really kicking each other’s asses. But they’re not, they’re just breaking on the floor. Or ARE they? I think I heard one scream .
At first sight they may look like some pretty sharp blue photographs, however all those pictures are actually hand drawn with a simple Bic ballpoint pen ! Spanish artist Juan Francisco Casas uses up to four 14p ballpoint pens to create his incredibly photorealistic drawings, measuring up to 10ft (3 meters) high. The use of penballs makes Juan’s drawings even more original, which certainly has played a big role in his way to success, and his works are already a sell-out at exhibitions. His source of inspiration comes from his own photographs of nights out with his friends, so you can only imagine how wild his parties are, as half of his drawings include girls that forgot to put on their clothes.

Daniel Kukla is a photographer who had formal training in biological and anthropological sciences. His educational background plays a major part of his artistic practice, and this can be seen in his clever project titled, The Edge Effect . In the description and explanation of the project, Kukla writes, In March of 2012, I was awarded an artist’s residency by the United States National Park Service in southern California’s Joshua Tree National Park. While staying in the Park, I spent much of my time visiting the borderlands of the park and the areas where the low Sonoran desert meets the high Mojave desert. While hiking and driving, I caught glimpses of the border space created by the meeting of distinct ecosystems in juxtaposition, referred to as the Edge Effect in the ecological sciences.

No doubt you’ll have heard of the term Cinemagraph since it exploded onto the Internets.

Aug 12th 2011 By: Brian Warmoth Somewhere between the original, manga-looking Pokémon that we all know and love and the bigger, shinier fantasy re-imaginings that we've also seen, lies Gavin Mackey's vision for the super-powered critters. In Mackey's art, they take an insidious turn toward resembling Renée French subjects or that creepy baby in David Lynch's Eraserhead .
