UK illustrator Boneface doesn’t have much to say about himself at his website but his violent, bloody superhero-obsessed work says more than enough about him and his talent.

With just this single new image created for the cover of Paper Diamond’s EP ‘Levitate’ all of my interest in Raccoon Nook’s work was completely restored. He is remarkably talented and one of those new and frightening breeds of creative capable of doing almost anything he sets his hand to and doing it with expertise.

John Vogl is a crazy talented local illustrator based right here in Denver, CO. He has somehow slipped my attention but I recently stumbled across his work and was incredibly impressed by his poster art. He’s got some absolutely fantastic posters for sale at both his Etsy Shop and his Big Cartel store.

Australian artist/illustrator Nina Maskiell has created some intricate organic vegitation-inspired black and white renderings that would not be easy to produce. So far there are only a few images in her portfolio but it’s probably not a stretch to say that she is just getting started.

Chris Huth is a local Denver artist who has been making some waves lately. He recently completed a poster for the Required Reading show at Gallery 1988 in LA. He also just completed a totally kick ass poster for Mogwai. Chris is a pretty low key guy who never really tells you exactly what he is up to when you run into him in person but he’s always got something good going on behind the scenes. He’s amazingly talented and is one of the rarest breeds of artists who is every bit as good at drawing and illustrating as he is at silkscreening. Keep any eye out for Huth’s work because my guess is he’s got a lot more coming.

2FromBox is a duet based out of Boston. They don’t have a lot of work on their site yet but I am really digging their illustration style. They have some tasty fan art posted and I am anxiously awaiting their first full on film poster. Let’s see it guys.

Illustrator and Motion Designer extraordinaire Ian Kim has updated with some slick and tasty new work. He’s always an inspiration and his latest doesn’t disappoint. It’s rare you see someone move through so many mediums with such equal ability to create exceptional visuals. He’s the genuine article.

Again, and you will probably see more of this now that I am finally coming out of my poster collecting nerd closet here is another artist I have appreciated lately creating some outstanding posters for cult horror movie classics. His name is Christopher Ott and his storefront is London 1888. He recently hooked me up with a copy of his They Live poster signed by the director John Carpenter. I am still awaiting it’s arrival in the mail and I am going nuts waiting. It’s a brilliant poster and Ott is cranking out some fun stuff.

Unless you have worked closely with me in the Changethethought studio or you happen to be a close family member you might not know that I am a certified silkscreen movie poster fanatic. I have recently begun living my dream of finally being able to collect Mondo Alamo Drafthouse Posters and have been on a bit of a rampage lately. I was recently turned onto the site Reelizer which pulls together some of the best fan art available and works as a good archive of what has been done in the fanart realm. There is definitely an increasing demand in this market and it’s great to finally see so many talented people emerging to create artwork around some of their favorite films.

Brighton based illustrator Jamie Cullen has an interesting mish mash of influences represented in his imagery including references to pop culture but with a throwback 70’s sensibility created out of undeniable modern vector art.

Phantom City Creative is a Toronto based illustration and design studio that has turned out some fantastic posters lately for some of their favorite movies. The posters are actually for sale too but only come in small 11×17 sizes. I would give anything to see some of the pieces printed larger because the quality of the illustrations and the compositional arrangement is top notch. Keep an eye on this studio.

I have been a fan of illustrator James Jirat Patradoon for several years now. He has recently updated with both a new website and several new illustrations for various clients. He’s kept his edge and is still churning out some great stuff.

London based illustrator Ruben Ireland uses ink, dirty water, acrylic, weathered paper, a wacom tablet and Photoshop to create his lyrical illustrations. Strangely enough after employing all of this media his work retains an almost vector-like quality. His images are very clean and stylistic but his subject matter is often playful. He has recently updated his portfolio.

Victo Ngai’s unique cultural heritage is alive and kicking in her illustrations. Her images are simple and accessible in subject but rich in color and movement. They retain a distinctly asian influence that references Japanese and Chinese ink prints. She spent some time on her bio, so as opposed to butchering it in my own words, you can read on below:

“Victo’s real name is Ngai Chuen Ching.

She was born and raised in Hong Kong.
She got her English name, Victoria, when she was in a British kindergarten as Ngai Chuen Ching was too hard to pronounce for the foreign teachers.
However, “Victoria” was too hard for her fellow Chinese classmates, so they started calling her Victo instead. Since “Ngai Chuen Ching” was only called/yelled by teachers or parents when Victo got into troubles, she decided she likes the name “Victo” better.

Victo has been wondering who she really is, where she really belongs to for all these time.

Victo’s cultural background is hard to nail down: she speaks Chinese(Both Cantonese and Mandarin), English and Japanese. She attended Christian schools, but is not Christian. She holds a British National (Overseas) passport but is not truly British. She is a Hong Kong citizen but does not have a Chinese ID card. Her parents live in Hong Kong; her grandparents are Chinese American living in the west coast of the States; and Victo went to Rhode Island School of Design on the east coast.”
