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.

Rami would actually be a real happy go lucky guy, if he wasn’t so damn strenuous. He’s been perfecting his computer based art for a good 10 years now. Doesn’t it normally take around 10 years to master a craft? Rami isn’t quite there yet, he reckons, but he has learned a thing or two along the way. For example, that less is actually more. And color is good — very good. So come all ye faithful, give him a job or visit him at his modest studio. He will certainly brew you a cup and treat you to a danish — if he doesn’t happen to be in the nearby record shop hunting for some hopelessly knackered Proto-grunge LP.”

He may claim he doesn’t have it dialed yet but his style is pretty slick.

Brighton-based illustrator Matthew James Taylor has a way with negative space and minimal vector art. The two combine to generate some memorable imagery that although may be designed with simplicity in mind leaves a complex and emotive impression on the viewer.

I stumbled upon the work of London based illustrator Matt Lyon today and was genuinely impressed and inspired by his work. His choice of colors and the simple but extremely effective ways that he organizes vector forms yields some awesome results. I would buy a print of the above work in a heartbeat. Beautiful stuff.

The talented people behind Vault 49 relaunched their website this morning and damn does it look sexy. They have several new projects in their portfolio as well. I love that they don’t wait for client projects to experiment and keep working toward generating new ideas. They continually grow their arsenal of illustration techniques.
