The Athletic Artworks Of Stephanie Lopez.


Recently I came across the fantastical illustrations of artist Stephanie Lopez of Wilmington, CA.  She’s a CSUEB grad who has a passion for basketball (that definitely translates into her work).  Having an extremely detailed, and slightly caricatured style of drawings, the artist better known as “2Craft” and her works tend to reflect athletes from basketball players to boxers.  From famous movies, to great moments in sports to celebrities, her “Michael Tudor-esque” style of art is definitely work checking out further.  Luckily… you can do that right here.

The Incredible Artwork of Thomas Cian.

Everything That Was Wrong With The Ninja Turtles Has Been Fixed.


21c4667c976a0d1ab5f5882edb8635bb

The artist known simply as Clog Two, hails from Singapore City, Singapore, and has done something that Micheal Bay, and $125 million dollars couldn’t… Reinvent the Ninja Turtles, and make them look good.  The new look of the Turtles in this years summer fiasco was something many classic fans had issues with.  (It was stated that using facial motion capture wouldn’t translate properly if the digital turtles didn’t have nostrils and lips like their live action counterparts.)  But Clog has managed to do them justice, illustrating the TMNT heroes and villains with tattoos and accessories that compliment the characters.  If you want a print for yourself , hit up Clog at clog02@electrocaine.com, they sell for around USD320.

At the Columbus College of Art and Design, two rogue college students are creating quite a stir… but not by any normal means. They aren’t cheating or stealing, they are causing a creative riot. The anonymous duo, who go by the name Dangerdust, sneak into a classroom each week and create a masterpiece out of nothing but chalk.  The pair are both seniors in Advertising & Graphic Design, and they are probably busy with a larger than life course-load, but they still remain passionate about their weekly chalk art. These two create some of the most beautiful (and inspiring) art you’ll ever see.

The Story Of Blook The Turtle Rider.


d712f0ae63506c3bc4eb7c347d370cf4

Andrés Maquinita, a brilliant illustrator hailing from Colombia, has conceptualized and brought to life Blook, The Turtle Rider.  This incredibly unique character comes complete with his own world thought up by Maquinita, and shows that with the right set of skills you can bring any creation to life.  Check out Blook’s Story Below.

Beside the gloom forest lives a small community of blue ogres. Probaly the last classic “hooka blue town” of the planet Glook.  This kind of special blue creatures have a beautiful tradition. Their lives are very short like a dog or like a purple phonix. But hundreds and hundreds of milleniums even before the “hex”, They’ve found the way to make it longer building a frindship with the inmortals and lonely Cloopa turtles. For ages, this has been one of the most beatiful relationships between two very different beasts.

Dihaze is a self-taught artist from Odessa, Ukraine. She uses her camera and Photoshop to create her series of surreal photo manipulations. Many of her artworks are inspired by her personal nightmares and phobias. For that reason, she is able to infuse strong emotions into her haunting images.

Rory Kurtz has been illustrating since he was old enough to hold a crayon. Self-taught and focusing in pencil, ink, and digital paint, Rory has carved out his niche as a unique voice in the illustration community. Working with digital media allows his paintings a greater amount of versatility, and faster production time, which makes all the difference when meeting deadlines. His influences are spread out across the respective wolds of literature, fashion, art, film, & music. His work isn’t necessarily easy to define, as he tends to shift from one style to the next and back again as fits the assignment, but the individual pieces seem unified by a shared sense of fantasy in a modern reality.

Created by an artist known only as Paper Beats Scissors, this collection of  illustrations depicts the single moment when two different characters from pop culture meet and give each other an empathetic fist bump due to a similarly depressing trait that they both share. For instance, when the Dark Knight and Harry Potter meet for the first time, they fist bump the fact that they are both orphans. There are a huge amount of characters included within the series from film, television, video games, comic books, animation and technology.
