I may not be a fan of Lebron, no I am not a disgruntled Cavaliers fan, but this illustration is really good. This was done by graphic designer Moto aka Motohiro NEZU . It’s a very interesting vector style pop art piece. The colors adds a vintage look to this portrait. You attention goes to his face, followed by the images of him playing, and the lines help maneuver your eyes. I think this an eye catching piece, but what do you think?
Alex Pardee was brought in to help director Zack Synder come up with visuals for the characters and landscapes for his latest movie “Suckerpunch”. Here are some posters that he illustrated. You can view more work of his at http://eyesuckink.com/

Soon to be available at Stussy.com, Stussy stores, and selected stores worldwide is the new collection collaboration from Marvel and Stussy. Stussy looked all over from comic books conventions, eBay, and local comic book stores for old issues with classic covers that fit with their brand image and design aesthetic. These vintage images were scanned from comic book covers and posters from the 1960’s-1990’s. This is a smart move from Stussy, to collaborate with biggest comic book company. It also brings street credibility for Marvel for allowing one of the popular streetwear brands to license their iconic superheroes. It is not the first time Marvel heroes ended up on t-shirts, but the work that Stussy put into, to find rare photos will certainly make this a hit. These t-shirts will be available on April 27, 2011.

Here is a realism illustration tutorial that you can apply in Photoshop. I’ve been looking for tips for my personal work, so here a tutorial if you’re looking for one. This is what the author had to say about this tutorial, “it is a tutorial for how to cg or color realistically.”

Here are some designs created by illustrator Paulo Arrarian. They’re graffiti influenced and I think these stand out.When Nike commissions artists to design for them, I always feel that every designer kills it. Then again, why wouldn’t they? Nike did hire them for a reason, because they were beginning to be everyone’s radar.

Hey, I know it’s been awhile since I’ve updated these. I decided since I’ve been busy, I will update these at the end of the week. The next update for this will be on the 27th. Unfortunately I did miss one day, which I’m really pissed and got pretty sad about, because it was a goal of mine to work on this everyday. Sometimes life happens where you cannot control what goes on. Anyway I’ve been sketching a bit and jotting down ideas, before I decide to follow through with them.
Day 71- I was watching the Roast of Donald Trump when I was designing this for hip hop artist Jay Wise. He makes references to space, so I thought having planets and elements of space in his name made sense.
Day 72- I was playing with ink and it got stuck to the other page when I closed it, that’s why there is a rip. I wanted to create an odd character, so I sketched that.
Day 73 – Female sketch
Day 74 -Sketch of a banner and knight like figure
Day 75- I had an idea to create a St. Patrick’s Day beer label, because a lot of people go out drinking. I had the date, the shamrock, and the snakes that according to the myth St. Patrick drove out of Ireland with. It’s something I may work on, but here was the rough sketch.
Day 76 – I was playing around with some vector stock art.
Day 77 – Here’s a self potrait, when I was playing around with my camera.
Day 78- I like typography and decided to create a custom font sketch.
Day 79- I always had an idea of a cool bird design and here was my first concept sketch.
Day 80- I was again messing around with some fight vector stock art that I have.
