Judas Priest and Doug Johnson - The Official Blog of Artamax Design Studio Posted on July 16th, 2012 in Graphic design, Illustrations When i was younger and just began diving into hard rock and heavy metal i remember how impressed i was with Judas Priest covers. This eagle falling from the sky and a metal cat - these pictures I have met in many other magazines later on (holding now cover of the Hungarian LPM magazine from January 1990), this style and energy is still inspiring people. I have seen a magazine in Russia with cover image made with a Judas Priest “Turbo” cover just last year. These illustrations were made by Doug Johnson, one of the most interesting illustrators of the 80’s IMHO. Here is the cover for Bo Diddley’s “Where It All Began”
CSSGram What is This? For more background on CSS Image Effects, you can check out my blog series here, or watch my video from CSS Conf EU, which gives a baseline on blend modes and filters.

The Merry Pranksters, author Ken Kesey's notorious troupe of counter-cultural jesters, had decided to pay the photographer an unsolicited visit. "I don't think I stripped naked," Schiller, now 80, recalls, "but I jumped right in with them, I can tell you that!" Fifty-one years later, he chuckles remembering how upset his wife was at the time.

Displace filter with vector effects After one month traveling I’m back and trying to get back to my routine. First of all, I’d like to thank all comments and emails about the blog and the tutorials. Now talking about Photoshop, I started using the new CS3 programs on my mac and I have to say, they are really faster, and I can finally use the Illustrator more often. On this article I created a design inspired by the work of Nik Ainley. He’s one of my favorite Photoshop Masters and his work is really impressive. For this design I used the Displace filter in Photoshop, I think it’s one of the most obscure filters because most the majority of users don’t know how to use it, and that includes me, lol.
Incredible Wood Carved Sculptures by Maskull Lasserre The pictures below are all work of Canadian artist and sculpture Maskull Lasserre who’s breathtaking sculptural work is all about extracting the most delicate anatomical forms of humans, animals and insects from common inanimate objects such as pianos, doors, books or axes. Check out some of his incredible work below, his eye for detail is absolutely amazing: That might seem like a waste of a perfectly good piano or axe to some, but according to the artist his work is a demonstration of how once something ceases to be it becomes something else: When the remnants of life are imposed on an object, and that’s true especially with the carving work that I do, it infers a past history or a previous life that had been lived, so again where people see my work as macabre, I often see it as hopeful, as the remnants of a life.
