Dear friends, I am happy to see you again! I hope you had a fantastic weekend and now you are ready to work! I prepared for you some new illustrations and animations! This week I covered different themes, so you can find something special just for you! Let’s look at this artworks!
Hustle & Happiness
Ever thought that self-powered metal thing in your garage – aka your bike – could take you around the world? Because it can! You don’t have to be a world-class athlete to go from strolling through your neighborhood to pedaling the roads of China. Look at this wonderful picture by Brad Cuzen. He captured a girl on a special bike! The wheels are a symbol that your bike can help you to explore the world!
Calligraphy is the art of forming beautiful symbols by hand and arranging them well, it is popular in Asian countries. People who practice calligraphy say that it helps them to relax and have a “me time”. Do you want to practice it but think that you don’t have enough patience? Markus Magnusson has a solution for you, look at his animation! If you do not like letters, you can replace them with cats!
Castles were built to serve a whole variety of purposes, to have a military, political, social, and economic role. The emphasis on each of these aspects varied according to the wishes of the lord who built it. Here you can see a special castle, febin_raj created it for magical creatures! It has a great combination of organic and geometric forms. And of course, we love colors and textures. How would your special castle look like?
Back to the Future Poster
Are you a big fan of science fiction movies? Many designers are dreaming someday to have the opportunity to illustrate the iconic DeLorean. DKNG had such opportunity! Look at this poster! It is so obvious when a designer creates an illustration that he likes! It is so real and all the small details are in place!
The "perfect" vacation
We all have those friends who send us pictures from wonderful places like beaches and mountains when you have to be in an office! We have those moments! Don’t be jealous of those people. Send them this sarcastic picture by Burnt Toast! It is pink and sweet, but it captures the real feelings.
Do you like traveling at night? There is something magical about it, right? There is less traffic and you can put your music on and enjoy the trip! Gal Shir has a better idea about night traveling, how about riding a ram? This picture looks so magical! I love colors and transitions. Where do you think this girl is traveling?
How do you feel about working in a team environment? Regardless of industry, you need to be capable of working successfully as part of a team. Diana Stoyanova captured a group of people who are working on a project. She used warm colors and soft geometric forms. “Two heads are better than one”, and what do you think about teamwork?
The one with all the 8 MB memory cards
There’s something special about old video games. The 16-color graphics, the 8-bit sound — something about it conjures memories of simpler times when joysticks seemed larger because our hands were still small… Mohamed Chahin can bring you back to your childhood with this picture!☺️ Do you remember your first video game console?
Do you like to play music? If so, you are going to like this illustration by Timo Kuilder, he used different geometric shapes and bright colors to capture this street band! What songs do you think they are playing?
Reading is important because it develops the mind. The mind is a muscle. It needs exercise. Understanding the written word is one way the mind grows in its ability. Here you can see a girl who is very enthusiastic about the book while her cat is dreaming about fish! Laisy Wang used a very nice palette and simple shapes! She knows how to reach harmony!
I hope you enjoyed today’s collection? What is your favorite picture or animation? Have a wonderful week and soon I will send you more illustrations!
