We’ve covered him before here and here, but if you like Rosanes’ style, keep reading. Rosanes considers “doodling” to be a hobby that turned into his profession. This 24-year-old artist with no formal training tried his hand at comics, mural painting, and watercolors, before settling on his current medium. Despite having a day job, after more and more freelance work, his friends encouraged him to quit his job and go full time. To The Vanishing Point: The Obscure Broken Worlds Of Artist Sergey Kolesov.

He uses the fantasy style creating his pictures. Childhood Of Tomorrow: The Incredible Surreal Art Of Simon Stålenhag. The dark, incredibly f*cked up comics of Joan Cornellà. Spanish cartoonist Joan Cornellà combines black humor and extreme discomfort, most famously in his wordless, six-panel comics.

The dark, incredibly f*cked up comics of Joan Cornellà

Cornellà‘s work deals in mutilation and disfigurement, sadistic or oblivious violence, the alienation of modernity and a total disregard for human life. (I know. It doesn’t sound funny, but trust me.) Cornellà‘s aesthetic runs completely counterintuitive to his themes—his colors are lovely and soothing, and his human figures are glassy-eyed and friendly, as if they walked out of a children’s cartoon. Uncomfortable laughter aside, these beautiful little comics really bear the mark of Cornellà‘s fine arts training. Philipp Weber. The British Library. Each Week, Two Anonymous Students Named Dangerdust Create This Amazing Chalkboard Art. At the Columbus College of Art and Design, two rogue college students are creating quite a stir… but not by any normal means.

Each Week, Two Anonymous Students Named Dangerdust Create This Amazing Chalkboard Art

They aren’t cheating or stealing, they are causing a creative riot. The anonymous duo, who go by the name Dangerdust, sneak into a classroom each week and create a masterpiece out of nothing but chalk. The pair are both seniors in Advertising & Graphic Design, and they are probably busy with a larger than life course-load, but they still remain passionate about their weekly chalk art. These two create some of the most beautiful (and inspiring) art you’ll ever see. On Sunday or Monday nights, the magic happens. The pair selects a vacant classroom.

Artist Discovers the Beauty of Life Emerging from Visual Chaos. Canadian artist Glen Ronald has the incredible ability of finding beauty in visual chaos.

Artist Discovers the Beauty of Life Emerging from Visual Chaos

Looking beyond crackled paint and frenetic ink splatters, his popular Instagram shows him transforming unruly media into portraits of people and animals. Faces, fur, snouts, and beaks are created by drawing into these drips, and they produce the illusion that they’re somehow emerging from the abstract forms. By working on top of the splatters—using materials like fine-tipped pens, markers, and pencils—Ronald creates dramatic compositions.

This process could be compared to finding a diamond in the rough, as he’s able to take uncontrollable-looking elements and refine them into exquisite works of art. What was once chaotic now has cohesion and a greater meaning. Erenarik's DeviantArt gallery. Danijel Cecelja. Behance. Illustration, Painting, Commissions.

The Paintings of Jacek Yerka. The Natural and Urban Collide in the Drawings of Pat Perry. A peek inside the sketchbooks of Michigan based artist and illustrator Pat Perry reveals a fascinating world where the natural world seems on a direct collision course with the urban. Silhouettes of people and wildlife are filled with rich, textured stories that seem to be representative of dreamlike memories. The detail in Perry’s work is undeniably amazing, even the images above don’t quite do it justice, spend some time scrolling (horizontally) through his sketchbook blog to see what I’m talking about. I recommend following Perry on Flickr, Facebook or via his blog, and he has numerous reasonably priced prints available in his store including may of the works above. Incredible New Sketchbook Illustrations from Mattias Adolfsson.

Within the sketchbooks of Swedish artist Mattias Adolfsson (previously), strange comic book robots are seen running amok, fantastic steampunk-esque machines sputter to life, and airplane pilots find themselves facing interfaces encumbered with thousands of switches, dials, and tubes. It’s a world that is absurdly complex and meticulously drawn using only a finely controlled pen and a few brushstrokes of color.

Above are just a few of my favorites among Adolfsson’s prolific outpouring of work which you can follow on Flickr and Behance. Animals Drawn with Moiré Patterns.
