Illustrator Nathan Manire reached out to inform us that he has updated his portfolio with more of his intricate portrait work. This time the update comes with an illustration of famed basketball giant Lebron James who made a lot of people happy this year and also pissed off an entire city/state upon his recent decision to uproot. It’s crazy how much his likeness has popped up recently in design and illustration circles. The economy he has fueled around himself and his career is impressive.

Russian illustrator Eika Dopludo has been busy since I last posted her work and has updated with some new and even trippier examples of hand drawn lettering. It’s psychedelic type as image and it’s a lot of fun to look at.

Rep agency Hugo and Marie have added one more remarkably talented name to their short but amazing list of artists and that person is Kustaa Saksi. They have updated their website with some of Saksi’s colorful and fantastic work. Last time I was in NY, Mario Hugo was loaded to the gills with work so it sounds like they are doing very well. With the talent they currently have under their umbrella, it’s easy to see why they would be busy.

Matthew the Horse is an illustrator represented by Unseen Agency. He has a quirky doodley style that at first seems childlike but closer examination reveals a very deliberate adult approach resulting in some interesting contemporary imagery.

Illustrator Kristian Hammerstad has an old school pulp comic style combined with a skater punk zombie aesthetic tipped off with a good dose of humor. It’s an extremely likeable combination of elements that comes together so seamlessly that you almost forget the skill and craft required to generate such fun imagery.

Brooklyn based graphic designer/illustrator Damien Correll has had his work posted on this blog before but I don’t know if his Flickr-folio has ever been posted. It needs to be because it is updated much more frequently than his website and features some colorful, accessible and beautiful design and print work. I am a big fan of the above poster for a Nike’s All for One exhibition using a great color palette.

Diftype: Updates

Swedish designer/digital illustrator Niklas Lundberg has updated his portfolio with more complex layered digi-visuals. He also now has prints of some of his work available. I am curious how much detail comes through in the physical print. It’s always something akin to magic when you receive a complex digital illustration in a physical print format to see just how much detail is contained within the image.

Spanish illustrator Martin Sati has been busy creating some very attractive primarily vector illustrations. His work carries over what could almost be called the Barcelona or Spanish digital illustration style and once again it’s terribly fun to look at and hard to ignore.

Australian illustrator Ben Brown shreds the gnar with his pen producing old school 80’s skate punk style illustrations that often incorporate kick ass skulls and zombies. How can you not love him for keeping it genuinely old school?

Messy Msxi

Illustrator artist Messy Msxi was born in Singapore but studied at Central Saint Martins, London. She has recently completed a series of illustrations for an exhibition titled ‘Ten Years Of Work For Every Minute On Stage’ which you can see at her site.

Here is a brief excerpt from Msxi on her impetus for the imagery in the show:

“This series is an outright documentation of: failure, process, training, preparing, suffering, bruising, not giving up and a toast to “the beginner’s spirit”. It serves as a reminder that success never comes easy and its the journey that builds character. It is a series seeking to encourage all who are in difficulty, to remind everyone who trudge the tough road that it will be worth it in the end.”

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.
