Amazing Illustrations by Micah Lidberg

Posted: 29 Apr 2010 07:14 AM PDT


The work of Micah Lidberg is truly amazing, his illustrations are all based in drawings and ink work which makes it so original and so rich on details. His work is inspired by nature and nature reflects on each one of her pieces, making it an entertaining venture.

About Micah Lidberg

micahlidberg.com

Hi there, I am Micah Lidberg. I grew up in the Middle West of America and since the mid 80's I really enjoyed it. I've since parted ways with the middle of the country - I've switched to the eastern beach. If for some reason I am not at the beach, you can probably find me in one of three cities - Kansas City, Minneapolis, or New York as these are my homes away from home.

As for my work - I'm shaken up by nature - every bit of it. It's certainly a very deep and very wide thing. With nature, there's plenty of room to explore and plenty to share. It's an entertaining venture.

My interests include but are not limited to - drawing, friends, people, America, places outside of America, strangeness, and occasionally tea.

ANGRY CLOUD

Personal Project — Ink & Digital

This is a drawing of a very angry cloud that is out of control. A fellow cloud is trying to impede his brother's destructive habits. The animals of the forest, air, and rivers have banded together to steal the deranged cloud's powers - lighting, hail, and rain. It is a tale of the rebalancing of natural order.

The actual drawing is approximately eleven feet long. It was drawn with fine tip pens, and was about two months of drawing.

For Friends — Graphite & Hand Binding

There are few things that are more satisfying than making or receiving a drawing - especially when it's of your favorite things. I asked twelve of my friends to give me lists of their twenty favorite things. I composed a drawing for each friend and compiled the drawings and the lists into a book. Everybody got a copy with the cover screenprinted in their favorite two colors.

Astonishing Paper Illustration by Yulia Brodskaya

Posted: 29 Apr 2010 04:45 AM PDT


Yulia Brodskaya is an artist and illustrator born in 1983 in Moscow - Russia. She is very recognized for her astonishing, elegant and detailed paper illustrations. Currently based in the UK, where she went to continue her education in art at the University of Hertfordshire with a Master of Art in Graphics Communication degree in 2006. After getting her degree, Yulia continued to experiment and explore ways of bringing together all the things she likes most: typography, paper, and highly detailed hand-made craft objects. She has swiftly earned an international reputation for her innovative paper illustrations and continues to create beautifully detailed paper designs for clients all around the world.

"Typography is my second love, after paper and I'm really happy that I've found a way of combining the two. Having said that, I don't want to exclude non-typobased designs, I'd like to work on different projects." Yulia for Computer Arts

I bumped into Yulia's work during one of my explorations looking for inspiration and was impressed by her pieces. The colors, details, swirls and the movement of her artworks, everything matches perfectly catching our attention and enchanting those who love the combination of creativity, talent and unique ideas. Well, enough said is time for you to enjoy the images! And don't forget to visit her website for more. Hope you like it! Enjoy. =)

Pencil versus Camera by Ben Heine

Posted: 29 Apr 2010 03:27 AM PDT


Ben Heine is a Belgian painter, illustrator, portraitist, caricaturist and photographer. He was born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast and currently live and work in Brussels. Ben also has created a really cool series of works that called Pencil vs Camera.

I've been taking photos and drawing since almost 10 years. This « Pencil Vs Camera » series is nothing but the result of several years of graphic exploration and a logic consequence of my artistic evolution. But the real idea came by coincidence while I was watching television and writing a letter at the same time a few weeks ago. Reading my letter before putting it in the envelope, I saw in transparency the television behind the paper. I then realize it would be great to make something similar in a single image showing 2 different actions. - Ben Heine

For more information visit Ben's Flickr Page or his website at http://benheine.com/.

Pencil vs Camera


I took this photo in the "Palais des Beaux Arts" of Lille, France (I also made the drawing)


This is a photo I took in Lille, France. I also made the rough sketch...


This is the Atomium in Brussels, Belgium. I took this photo last Winter and edited it today


A sculpture, a photo, a drawing and friendship, all in once! :D


I took this photo in Belgium. I also drew the rough sketch. Yes I know, this one isn't really poetic, sorry. :)


This is a view of Utrecht from the Dom Tower, which is the tallest church tower in the Netherlands, at 112.5 metres (368 feet) in height. I took the photo and drew the 2 sketches (I've lived 7 months in Utrecht).


This is a view of the countryside in Braives, Belgium. I took the photo and drew the sketch (I wanted to make a very simplified composition on the paper to match the landscape).



I took this photo near Brussels (I also made the sketch)


This is a photo I took from Montmartre's hill in Paris, France. I also made the rough sketch. :D
