Love these illustrations by Claire Hummel (shoomlah on Deviant Art). Claire redrew Disney princesses to have more historically accurate attire. To see some of the resources she used for the dress designs, read her resource page. You can also read an FAQ about this series.
I am loving these 30 Rock portraits by Andrew Salomone. They feature characters Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) and Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin), and the best part is, they are made of Nerds! I am absolutely certain that Liz would appreciate this fine tribute. If you haven't watched the show before, I highly suggest it.
Even if you aren't a fan of Star Wars, you have to admit these posters by Olly Moss are damn cool. I love the character silhouettes and simple, yet illustrative, shapes used in these posters.This post also fulfills my nerd quota for the month.
Wow! That is the one word that comes to mind when I look at Rob Hefferan's hyperrealistic paintings. The amount of details he pours into each painting is astounding. He truly knows how to bring out beauty in women in his paintings. Incredibly, this is only a small sampling of his work. I highly recommend checking out more on his website. In the mean time, enjoy my favorites below!
These are some pretty impressive uses for heat sensitive paint used by Shi Yuan. The poster above reacts when you touch it. The wallpaper reacts to a rise in temperature, and the calendar fades away during the day. It's a wonder why people aren't currently marketing these kinds of things to every day users.
I absolutely love these drawings by Adam Ellis. Adam just browses through his friends' Facebook images, chooses his favorite ones, and draws them. I love the style and humorous liberties he takes on each photo. You can even get one of yourself!
From the fashion photographer who brought us the wonderful set of beauty photos comes this great set of fashion artworks. Daniela Glunz masterfully mixes fashion photos with paint splatters to create these colorful and dynamic works.
Gabriel Moreno is a gifted illustrator, engraver and painter based out of Madrid. His illustrations consist of a collage of elements and make excellent use of very defined lines which he uses to create depth, shading and shadows. The splash of water colors helps to bring an added touch of life to his drawings.
