Wow is really all there is to say about the illustrative works of Jonathan Burton. His covers for Penguin books are absolutely sensational and his more traditional style is refreshing within the context of modern illustration techniques. Prepare to be inspired.

Clarire Martin has captured grueling but enlightening photographs chronicling the life of addiction. It’s not easy to pick through but the imagery cuts deep into the human condition.

Artists Inspire Artists has a fantastic collection of icon design for your viewing inspiration. Icon Design is something I’ve held a particular fascination for since the introduction and deep penetration (so rare you can use that phrase in a serious context) of touch screen technology in our lives. This collection exemplifies just how much craft goes into generating these tiny but amazingly detailed images.

Budi Satria Kwan has had many designs printed through Threadless and for good reason. Kwan is highly skilled at producing creative imagery based more on conceptual execution as opposed to leaning on a unique individual style. That opens the door for a broader audience. Just the kinda thing that works well on Threadless.

Austin-based designer and illustrator Nathan Walker is deft with the vector graphics and has some amazing projects in his Behance-folio including some projects he has art directed that are equally fantastic. He also goes by the name ‘All The Pretty Colors’.

“We can’t believe anyone has made it to adulthood without seeing at least one of his flicks, but in case you grew up in a cult, for sheer power of iconography alone, Kubrick deserves his place in the pantheon of greats…”

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has a notable retrospective exhibit of the life and work of Stanley Kubrick. It sounds cliché in creative circles but 2001: A Space Odyssey is my favorite film of all time and several of Kubrick’s other works rank in my top 10.

It looks as thought the exhibit will be up for a while and I may actually try and head out to LA at some point just to see it. If you live there then you have no excuse.
