I am really digging this new and smart series by young illustrator/designer Magomed Dovjenko who recently corrected me from a previous post that he is not yet even in his twenties. I feel a little Takashi Murakami coming on when I look through this series but that doesn’t lessen it for me at all, it actually makes it even better.

Luis Toledo is a Spanish illustrator with a strange layered and heavy style drawing in streams of inspiration from several different cultures. These are digital collages but I don’t think that lessens the time and meticulous attention required to both see through and arrive at something so rich.

I am a fan of Silence Television. His work is the perfect combination of tight graphic design and equally tight illustration. He’s thrown some new prints up for sale and you can’t miss with his work on your wall.

Adrián Romero is a Spanish graphic designer and illustrator with some wild, colorful and pop-infused visuals in his portfolio. His work is very illustrated but composed with the sensitivity of a designer. It’s a tasty bag of eye candy.

There’s some richly detailed retro-styled work in the Behance portfolio of irish designer/illustrator of Steve Simpson. His rather literal interpretation of smorgasbord makes for the perfect visual pun and it’s accomplished in a style that is an equally perfect fit.

JooHee Yoon has an interesting style that makes every illustration feel as if it has already been printed and the ink may have been running out in the process. It makes the simple stylized imagery feel ‘real’ for lack of a better description. The tactility gives the work an added sense of dimension and pulls the work out of modern pop realm back into the illustration heydays of the 60s and 70s.

Tim McDonagh has some sumptuously detailed work in his small but considered illustration portfolio. He keeps his color work fairly flat and printerly which gives his work a bit of an antiqued feel.
