DC Superhero Mugshots

by Indy

These iconic figures were superbly illustrated by the talented Michael B Myers Jr. A 28 year old hailing from the US, Michael caused quite a buzz with these superb illustrations.

The textured, distressed and saturated look to the images give an authentic feel. Absolutely inspirational work.

Gareth Bale Animation

by Indy

Continuing the football theme,  I came across this incredible bit of Art by animator Richard Swarbrick.

One of my greatest memories as a Spurs fan has to be of Gareth Bale’s single hand destruction of Inter Milan this season in the Champions League.

This animated piece is beautifully hand drawn, with occassions where the figures are represented by a few flicks of a brush, or a rough squiggle, yet it perfectly captures the moment. An absolutely brilliant bit of animation (and what a great player! COYS!)

See the entire movie here.

Disney-Pixar’s Up

by admin

I’m back! Fresh from my trip to Disney World, back with some cool eye candy for you all. Pixar and Disney have teamed up to once again produce the goods with another superb animated movie, “Up”. I managed to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studio’s and sneak a peek (…well it’s open to everyone) at some of the behind the scenes development processes and character sketches.

It was a fascinating insight into the development and evolution of the characters including Carl Fredrickson, Russell and Dug. All sorts of experimentation with different colours and media such as pastels, colour pencils, water colour, pencil and pen drawings. The film’s pretty dam good too!

Have fun!

This cat grew up in the mean suburbs of Perth and goes by the name of Yok Yoker. He definately has a unique flavour and im digging his illustration style.

Infatuated with gargoyles, the man can come across as a real funny dude, but does some serious work with the AIDS account in Kenya making posters inviting people to come and talk about Aids.

The Yok has a lot of work out there for us all to see and admire, using all sorts of textures as his canvas. Check him out on the following sites:

Featured Artist: Alberto Cerriteño

I will try and make it a regular feature of heyindy.com to have a segment called “Featured Artist”, where I will pay testament to the artists who inspire me most. Skwak the illustrator from Lille was the first installment of these.

Many artists’ work are instantly recognisable through their distinctive style. Some often take your breath away with the sheer quality of their work and their remarkable creativity. Alberto Cerriteño most certainly falls into this category.

An illustrator and designer, from Mexico City, Alberto Cerriteño’s charismatic illustrations can be seen on many leading publications and websites. Marinating a unique textured collage approach with a brilliant illustration style, Alberto’s work has gained much recognition. Highly detailed textures and desaturated inks and colours contribute towards a fascinating style and technique. A truly incredible source of inspiration, heyindy.com salutes you!
