Rainbows, honeycombs, pixels and even famous Japanese works of art — there’s almost nothing Canadian makeup artist Andrea Reed can’t recreate using a few brushes and a variety of lipsticks.  Going by the name Girl Grey Beauty, Reed is known for sharing drool-worthy lip art creations as well as handy beauty tutorials. It’s painful to admit, but her works really made us realize we have no game whatsoever when it comes to primpin’.  Reed, among other incredible makeup gurus, really pushes the limits of modern art, showing that it no longer belongs solely in galleries and museums, but can be found in the most unexpected places, even a human face.

When you cross a girl the street you ask yourself for one second if you should turn back to see her face again.  This was one second too late , she has passed and you only have her back , her perfume and a taste of regret.

PENIS… The P is for Penis. I’ve come across many, many a talented illustrator, but it’s the ones who’s styles transcend the norm that stick out to me.  Once I saw just two illustrations from good ol’ Penis (The illustrator’s name is Keith, but I just want to see how many times I can say penis in this post before we get flagged), but after seeing the juxtaposition between the intricacy and simplicity in Penis’s works of art, I’ve been clamoring for some of his work to call my own.  If you enjoy the illustrations in the post, make sure to Keith’s website right here, and grab some gear of your own.

Bioworkz


 

What is Bioworkz?​​​​​​​​​​​
I’ve always been inspired by H.R. Giger and his work has been defined as “Biomechanics”. Early in my artistic career, I created lots of biomechanical illustrations. That’s how I came up with the moniker BioWorkZ. It’s a moniker I’ve been using since college and it has stuck with me since.​

Who is Ben Kwok?​​​​​​​​​​​​

BioWorkZ a.k.a. Ben Kwok is an L.A. based graphic artist and illustrator. Born in Taiwan, raised in Los Angeles, art has always been a huge part of my life. When I could first use chopsticks, I was already doodling on whatever I could get my hands on. I love complex hyper detailed artwork. To lose myself into the “flow” of drawing is about as good as it gets. I’m very passionate about what I do, that’s why I continue doing it.

I was heavily influenced by the works of H.R. Giger, Alfonse Mucha. Now, I find myself being drawn into type/lettering inspired artwork. Especially works by Aaron Horkey, and David A. Smith. Their attention to detail is simply amazing. I can only hope to get as good or come close to their caliber.

Apparel​​​​​​​​​​​

I’ve been in the apparel business for almost 8 years. Early in my career, I was lucky enough to work at a silk screen print house. Learning to separate colors, burning screens, mixing colors, understanding different inks, how they react with different fabrics. Experimenting with mesh count, testing the outcome of different combination of inks and fabrics. Ultimately, understanding the limitations of how the artwork will translate best once printed onto the garment.

Been with several apparel companies and had the opportunity to work freelance with many more. I am confident I can deliver the right image with the right style. From Mens, Womens, Juniors, Tweens, Kids, and Babies. I’ve done it all and will continue to polish my portfolio. I welcome a challenge…how else will I get better?

​​

Illustration​​​​​​​​​​​​
​Highly detailed, rendered, polished illustration is what I strive for. I want the artwork to pull the viewer in and hold them hostage. I want the image to be initially striking, and when the viewer gets up close and personal, I want the image to unfold into greater details while the viewer absorbs the intricacies and attention to little details. That’s what I personally love about illustrations and that how I would like my art to be perceived.

You may have strong, fond memories of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as a child, or maybe you had to buy the toys for your kids, maybe you lived in Siberea from 1992 until 1999, and have no idea what I’m referring to… But regardless of your association these colorful heroes, they are getting a big budget reboot soon.  Atlanta native Goni Montes, has taken his illustration skills to create some extremely impressive solo posters for the Rangers.  Check the method.

Seoul, Korea is the home to many a talented artist, but Kim Byungkwan rolls in a lane of his own.  His collection of black and white, stylized, and almost eerie works are titled “Memories 1940’s”.  The faceless, fluid, and frightening acrylic paintings are all reminiscent of the time period, and are just a small portion of Byungkwan’s full collection of works.  To see more of Kim’s work, just click here.

Robotic Blood Printer Draws


ted-lawson-self-portrait-robotic-blood-machine-designboom-01

‘Drawing blood’ takes on a different description for brooklyn-based artist Ted Lawson‘s ‘ghost in the machine’: A life-sized, nude self-portrait rendered from his own bodily fluid. Fed intravenously to a CNC machine, lawson’s blood traverses through the mechanical parts, while a robotic arm attached to the device — programmed to trace the designated illustration — carefully maps out the human form.

 

‘I have always used many different technologies to create my work and the goal is usually to find a way to turn those towards something organic and human.‘ Lawson tells us ‘I’m generally not into doing selfies, particularly nude ones, but when I came up with the idea to connect my blood directly to the robot CNC machine, it just made too much sense to not try one as a full nude self-portrait.’

When one thinks of collages, the inside of a 13 year old girl’s notebook peppered with Bieber photos is probably the first thing that comes to mind.  But when it comes to hand made collages, the skill and execution can be fare more astonishing.  A fashion collaboration with Wolfgang Joop for his German fashion brand ‘Wunderkind’ is where this incredible collection of images stems from.  The Spring-Summer collection’s main theme was a famous Janis Joplin quote: “Freedom is just another word for nothing else to lose”.  Ashkan Honarvar, the primary artist describes the thought process as such….
My main goal was to create images that radiated freedom, color, life and a certain fiery spark that matched Wunderkind’s image and the wonderful quote from a time when the word ‘freedom’ meant something different.

Illustration is a difficult skill to master on its own, as is finding one’s particular style, subject matter, and medium.  Belgian artist Bram Vanhaeren has a developed a fascinating combination of these facets.  His work started at great, and is only getting better.  His illustration style is unique, his subject matter started with sports heroes and inspirational athletes, then evolved to artists, actors, politicians and other inspirational figures.  Vanhaeren’s eye catching style even landed his work the cover of Advanced Photoshop Magazine, you can see more of his work here.

Patrick Seymour’s ‘Gremlins’.


df4c50ee40b2d7af3e4b2b8414e9e382There haven’t been many cult classics that have disturbed youth and humored 80’s adults since Joe Dante’s ‘Gremlins’.  The odd tale of a little creature who lives a life by very specific rules has become a small staple in American culture since 1984.  30 years later in 2014, digital artist Patrick Seymour has used his skills to re-invent the protagonist and antagonist of the film.  Check out his visualizations of Gizmo and Stripe below.

Gatorade has partnered with artists from around the world to create a dynamic print campaign featuring star athletes representing different sports such as NFL, Baseball, Tennis and Athleticism. The campaign features illustrations of the athletes that demonstrate the benefits of Gatorade products and drives at the idea that athletic performance is driven from the inside. Commissioned by TBWA\Chiat\Day he was direct to illustrate a combo of 3 ads for the campaign including the artworks for Cam Newton, Derek Jeter and Usain Bolt, the visual direction was well accepted by PepsiCo and they invited me also for a fourth ad for JJ Watt and participate on a feature for MTV interviewing the star.
