Check Out Some Of Ori Toors’ Vector Work.


When it comes to the technical terms surrounding beautiful and colorful art, people aren’t normally too fussed, but when it comes to Ori Toors illustrations, the vector part is important.  For anyone not ‘digital art’ savvy,  the difference between a jpeg and a vector is essentially that a jpeg is a bitmap based on pixels, that can be seen when blown up too big.  But a vector is based on paths that can be stretched to any size.  This essentially means that Ori Toors incredible works can be blown up to the size of a building, and still look just as amazing.

 

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.

Super Hero Hipster Families?

Phillip Sevy, illustrator extraordinaire has created a new spin on super hero universes.  There have been different iterations of heroes and villians, with Marvel’s Zombie collection, or alternate universes in DC comics, but Sevy has put a simpler spin on things… Hipsters.  See the worlds of Batman, Spiderman, and the X-Men re-imagined through the lenses of a hipsters horn-rimmed glasses.  Looks to us like they’re all just chilling in San Francisco.

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.

It would be nearly impossible for comic book inspired artwork to become more popular than it currently is. Over the years we’ve seen superhero inspired everything, and it looks like the trend continues with these Comic Book Portraits by Sandra Chevrier. As an illustrator, Chevrier is constantly creating works of art, and this offering is certainly no exception.  She has used collages of superheroes like  Superman, Green Lantern and Batman to cover the faces of female portraits, leaving only the eyes or mouths exposed.

Marlos Lima – Typography


Marlos Lima is a great illustrator living in Sao Paolo, Brazil. His work is quite impressive, whether it’s in the character design, cartoon creations or typographic publications.

More Digital Art From Alex Varanese.


First and foremost: no pre-existing typefaces were used anywhere in this series.  Like, down to the model numbers on the chips. It’s all either custom lettering or original fonts.  This is just another brilliant example of some work from Alex Varanese.  I already posted up some of his work a few years ago here.

The Artwork Of Randy Atwood.


The incredible illustrator Randy Atwood has a portfolio full of treasures.  But a series of his hyper-realistic pieces are all celebrity portraits are what really blew me away while looking at his collections.  This artwork is extremely detailed, (and his focus on hair totally blows my mind).  But out of all the illustrators I’ve seen who’s aim is to replicate photo-realism, Atwood is the only artist comparable to the also ridiculously talented Juan Francisco.
