There are some absolutely wild black and white digital collages in the Behance portfolio of French designer and illustrator Obery Nicolas. The imagery is very interesting and different from a lot of what I’ve seen lately.

Jeanti is an illustrator living and working in Paris (how nice). There’s a kind of 80′s airbrushed kind of thing happing in Jeanti’s work that makes for an extra sugary bit of eye candy.

The Parisian studio Pool which is headed by Léa Padovani & Sébastien Kieffer is responsible for the extremely simple yet wonderfully smart chair above. I don’t think they are for sale yet or have been mass produced but if they are, I must have one immediately.

Lars Botten is primarily, well he is a fashion photographer but he is more dimensional than that. Not only does he have an amazing eye for his beautiful subjects, that eye occasionally wanders and captures the surrounding environment with just as much artistic care and consideration.

A Day in Paris is a short film by Benoît MILLOT that composites some amazing 3D over live action. It’s a fun little film and the amount of work required to create such a seamless effect on behalf of Millot must have been intensely draining. You have to admire his commitment to craft.

French illustrator Véronique Meignaud aka Marmotte has been extremely busy and has continued to update her unusual portfolio with even more colorful and imaginative works. I am becoming a big fan of her particular style of illustration and the ‘weirder’ she gets the better her portfolio is. Some of her recent works are nothing short of stunning.
