Photographer Timothy Saccenti has kept up with his sharp, crisp and surreal style and recently updated with several new projects. His crisp and often nearly glowing imagery is just what the doctor ordered as far as modern contemporary photography goes and it’s likely landed him a flurry of commercial work.

I am really into the dead rockstar series created by Scottish Illustrator and Artist Hetch 666. They were commissioned by Dead Famous Clothing (who would have guessed?). They’d make a pretty sweet set of art prints too. Might I suggest letterpress?

“After working as a digital creative for commercial companies, Sit decided to stop this madness in 2008 and went back to head and handcraft to slice away the fat.”

Funny. I’ve been thinking the same thing lately. There is some nice hand done and possibly digitally finished work in Sit’s portfolio. I am not entirely sure of his technique but there is some amazing talent happening that is generating some darkly beautiful imagery.

César Moreno is one of my favorite people to have recently stumbled upon. I’ve been jumping hard and fast into illustrating and generating imagery inspired by pop and movies and César’s work in that arena stands out. He’s got some downright fantastic work in his portfolio and is holding it down in Mexico. Release some prints my friend. The people will buy.

There is some seriously nice illustration work happening between this collaboration.

I gotta say that Landland is quickly becoming one of my favorite poster-makers. Their work just kind of came out of nowhere (at least to me) in the past year or so and everything they release just gets better. It’s genuinely artistic work and it really stands out in the poster scene.

About Landland:
“Landland is a very small graphic design & illustration studio in Minneapolis that was started by Dan Black, Jessica Seamans & Matt Zaun in the spring of 2007. We had all been making things for quite a while before that, but 2007 was when we actually moved into a real studio and built the loft and the walls and a massive printing table, and learned how to install sinks and lights and all of that. Now it’s just Dan & Jes.

The Landland studio doubles as a fully-functional screenprinting shop, mainly focusing on record sleeves, posters and art prints. We make these things with computers and scanners and photocopiers and drawings and fun printing techniques and whatever we need to use to get the job done. We are also about to start publishing some short-run books and a handful of very limited-edition records. Where we live tends to get very cold, so a lot of times the only thing that makes sense is to stay inside and draw tessellation patterns or the names of bands or messed-up billboards or things that you remember from back when it was fun to go outside.”

It hasn’t been long since I last posted the work of UK illustrator Adrian Johnson but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth noting some of his newest work which very recently popped up on his site and it’s for one of my favorite clothing brands no less.

Yury Ustinau has again updated with more of the same strange black on black character illustrations that are both disturbing and amusing. I am definitely a fan at this point.

Can’t say much about who ‘ᎻᎪᏤᎬ Ꭺ ᏁᎥᏟᎬ ᎠᎪᎩ‘ really is other than a working artist in Berlin that is doing some lovely work with soft blending abstract color and really that is probably more than enough to say right?

I know I know, I just wrote about  illustrator Grant Coghill not long ago but they guy is keeping himself busy and I am really catching onto what he is laying down. He recently updated yet again with some more striking new imagery that is worth checking out.

There is some nice illustration work represented in the portfolio of Synthoxide known by her parents and loved ones as Kimberly Bicknese.

I love the pop-horror-infused, fun and tongue in cheek work of illustrator Ray Frenden and he recently updated (or at least since I last dropped in) with more colorful, zobified and horrorific imagery that is crazy fun to sift through.

I know I know, what the hell with that headline man, well it’s not what you think it is but it does stand as a fairly literal description of a rather epic photo shoot by Tadao Cern involving blowing some hard air at his subjects.

Brazilian artist and illustrator João Ruas AKA Feral Kid has updated with some new inspirational, dark but beautiful work.

Illustrator Chris Koehler is an illustrator I very much admire. His work has a very graphic quality although Koehler works with traditional media which is a bit of an ironic breath of fresh air in the now heavily digital world of illustration. He recently updated his portfolio with some spectacular new project work.

Casual cool collides with good looks in the photography portfolio of Alex Aristei. Looking at all of those skinny cool people made me feel a little inadequate and self conscious but Aristei has a knack for making it all look natural.
