Bruna Massadas, Telephone series, 2015. Submission
For the past couple of months, I have been drawing women talking on the phone. When I draw these characters I imagine what they are saying and often times the titles of the pieces reflect what they seem to be communicating. I like to imagine that they are all talking to each other.
As I type, I can see them out of the corner of my eye, crowding my field of vision, on an endless conversation in my tiny little apartment.
South Korean illustrator and cartoonist Kim Jung Gi draws energetic and fantastical scenes inspired by a mix of comics, movies, and his everyday encounters. His drawings became a Youtube sensation when he posted this timelapse video of his process, where he sketches incredibly without hesitation or visual references. Using primarily brush pen and ink, he works purely from his imagination, often distorting his images as if looking through a fish-eye lens.

French-Canadian Pascal Blanché’s personal work delivers the wonder & awe of an old school issue of Heavy Metal Magazine, but it’s his unconventional digital software techniques (3dsmax/Zbrush/Photoshop) that breathe life into these, mostly female aliens. With over 20 years experience as a 3D/CG illustrator & world builder, Pascal currently works at Ubisoft in Montreal as a senior art director. | (Previous post)
● The above images & more are available in Pascal’s 160 page artbook “DERELICT PLANET”

Watercolour paints have a fantastic way of capturing vital energy and ghostly shades of color that no other medium can, and Tilen Ti, an artist in Singapore, has become an expert at using watercolour paints to their fullest potential. The animals in his vibrantly colourful works seem to come to life on the page.
Ti focuses primarily on various tropical birds though he’s also painted more mundane creatures like cats and snails as well. He sells his paintings on Etsy, so be sure to check him out! Etsy | Instagram | Tumblr | Deviantart
Mike Campau is an digital artist from Michigan, USA who has over 15 years of experience creating powerful imagery for large brands and their high profile agencies.
I never talk politics on social media (or even with friends) as it usually leads to a heated discussion, hurt feelings, and a few “F” bombs. So, I decided to convey my thoughts through images.
Whether you are liberal or conservative, we can all agree there are some major problems facing our country right now. Everything from government corruption, broken justice system, religion (or lack there of), poor diet and nutrition, the shock value “look at me” YouTube generation, and how we have all become desensitized and almost apathetic in our response to hate crimes and mass shootings.
I’m not here to get on a soap box and say who is right or wrong, but to invoke a sense of urgency to make a change before it’s beyond repair.
The images use a visual metaphor of a living tree being cut down, disassembled into logs, and burned to the point where it has little to no value. (photography + CGI)
