The Windows of New York project is a weekly illustrated fix for an obsession that has increasingly grown in me since chance put me in this town. A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught my restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city. This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up.

I am a Graphic Designer living in New York City. I’m into all kinds of visual things, sharing good stuff with great people, and apparently, staring creepily at windows.”

A project by Jose Guizar.

Been a long long time since I dropped in on ole Siggi but it’s always rewarding to check in on what he’s been up to. I am absolutely loving this new image for Little White Lies cover about last year’s film ‘The Master’.

“Sonar Fates Limited is owned and founded by UK based illustrator Dean Falsify Cook.

Sonar Fates grew out of the need to supply mobile gaming & modern culture industries with highly detailed, esoteric illustrations, be them static or in considered motion.

Not merely content with providing pixels for hire, he is establishing Sonar Fates as a base on which to launch his own Intellectual Properties.

He likes to describe his work as ‘progressive’ and each piece is meticulously designed to first batter the senses and then as the mental dust settles, subtly invite the viewer to ponder the meaning and devour the details.

He has had the great honour of working with multiple companies worldwide and has been printed in international publications such as Computer Arts, XFUNS and WebsMedia as well as being featured on prominent sites such as Behance, Digital Art Served and Abduzeedo.

He is also a proud member of prestigious international art collective Depthcore.”

This guy knows how to represent himself.

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.

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.
