Clever Illustrations: Copywriter vs. Art Director

Like that funny series Paris vs. New York, Copywriter vs. Art Director pits two similar but quite opposing subjects together in a quick and witty way. While a copywriter will always have a way with words, armed with the job of creating copy to market products, an art director must convey a concise vision. With that in mind, check out these new illustrations that show the eternal dispute between copywriters and art directors.

The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Here, the Epcot-like ball makes an attractive overhead light and casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space. Insanely Detailed Artwork Created in 10 Months!

Insanely Detailed Artwork Created in 10 Months!

Think you'd give up after a few hours or maybe even a few days? Well, it's safe to say that most people would. Then again, most people aren't like Joe Fenton... Aptly titled Solitude, the personal project stands an astounding 5 ft high and 8 ft across. Fenton worked out all of the elements on a small scale first, then pieced his images together "like a jigsaw puzzle" by tracking his line drawings onto the final white paper.

"It took courage to start it as I had never done anything that size before," he tells us. Inspired by the large scale work of pop surreal artist Todd Schorr, Fenton knew he could tackle this project.

Riusuke Fukahori Paints Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin. First: watch the video.

Riusuke Fukahori Paints Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer.
