Splendid Inspiration #1

Last week I came across a numerous inspirational illustrators to digital artists while online browsing. One morning having coffee and viewing The Guardian, I came across an audio slide about an illustrator Molly Crabapple on her Week in Hell. An interesting piece documenting her project, As spent time for week in a hotel room, filling the walls with her drawings. This is inline with her book called The Art of Molly Crabapple, Vol 1: Week in Hell. As an interest I ended up searching for more of her work after seeing the audio slide. I love the style, humour, and elegant of the of the illustrations on her website. Looking at them, it seems there has a bit of influence from the 19th Century caricatures and drawings. Molly Crabapple is definitely has interesting creativity and imagination towards her work.

Another amazing illustrator is Fab Cirialo¬† which I come across the Computer Arts inspiration blogs. I got to view one of his pieces ‘Dorothy’ a drawing of a character from Wizard of Oz, who is edgy, current and trendy. I enjoyed the way his line work is handled and great coloring with an undertone of sarcasm and humour. The exciting bit are the iconic characters with a modern twist.

Lastly, a cool image drew me in called Frozen Frame by a digital artist sealtiel on the deviantART. The whole scene is just beautiful with details of innocence, facial expression and setting is priceless. You just fall in love with it!
