Daryl Feril

Comments Off on Daryl FerilIllustration

Daryl Feril is based in Bacolod City, Philippines where he hand renders some wonderful ink and watercolor illustrations inspired by flora and fauna. His self-initiated ‘brands in full bloom’ project integrates brands he felt worked with his specific style to communicate their ‘feminine mood yet still conserve the sophistication and identity of each brand’.

The akirA Project

Comments Off on The akirA ProjectArt

The akirA Project is the work of none other than Akira Beard. Not sure who that is or if that is a real name but whoever is responsible for the work in this Flickrfolio is one talented and imaginative human being. It might look messy but it takes a truly gifted hand to master a medium well enough to compose such imagery.

Camila do Rosario

Comments Off on Camila do RosarioIllustration

Camila do Rosário has a masterful hand when it comes to generating fashion-influenced watercolor and pencil illustrations. Her portraits exude a feminine sensibility in both image and technique that is complimented by the employment of a unique color palette. The clincher of course is that she also hails from one of the most beautiful cities in Brasil.

Comments Off on Brian LuongIllustration


Illustrator and artist Brian Luong is a man of many talents and he spreads them from paper to screen with such fluidity that there is no telling what he might create next. Whatever it is though, it’s pretty much guaranteed that it will be expertly crafted by a talented hand.

Daniel Mackie

Comments Off on Daniel MackieIllustration


British illustrator Daniel Mackie does one thing very well and that is watercolor. It’s a bit of a lost art sometimes when it comes to illustration but Mackie is holding his niche firmly down with some lovely work for a long list of clients.

Nathan Manire: Updates

Comments Off on Nathan Manire: UpdatesIllustration


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.

Tom Hovey

Comments Off on Tom HoveyIllustration


Illustrator Tom Hovey uses his hands and looks like he keeps them off of the mouse most of the time while generating his watercolor illustrations. The work benefits greatly from the approach as it keeps a raw and emotional tone.

Nathan Manire

Comments Off on Nathan ManireIllustration


Illustrator Nathan Manire was originally in Detroit but is now based in New York City. He has recently developed a new technique using watercolor to create a pixelated look that I would imagine requires a fair bit of patience to accomplish. The end result of his diligence is a striking image. To truly appreciate the amount of detail, take a few steps back from your monitor and squint your eyes a bit.

Barbara Wijnveld

Comments Off on Barbara WijnveldArt


Painter Barbara Wijnveld uses big dripping blocks of water color to create some striking fashion-influenced portrait paintings that look much better hanging on a wall then they come across via the web. I’d love to see them in a gallery setting.

Andrew Holder: Updates

Comments Off on Andrew Holder: UpdatesIllustration


It’s been a while since I dropped in on Andrew Holder and as far as I can tell, it looks like there is some new work in his portfolio (possibly even a new site). Either way, if you are unfamiliar with his work, it is a special retro-stylized treat.

Jonathan Bartlett has a unique and interesting illustration style. In particular, I am really enjoying the use of space in some of his black and white work but his recently updated book merits a browse overall.
