Artist - David Walker and Vhils

Beautiful street art in an abandoned school in Portugal.

“I was recently invited by Vhils to Lisbon as a guest painter at the annual VSP (Visual Street Performance) show. VSP is an annual live painting event which takes place in the Portuguese cities of Porto and Lisbon. This year VSP took over a huge semi-derelict school in the heart of Lisbon to be decorated by a host of Portuguese talent, including Vhils, Hium, Klit, Mosaik and more. I spent an amazing 5 days there painting, meeting all the crew, eating great seafood and talking to some very passionate and inspiring artists and art lovers.”

Artist - Minni Havas

Very smart pencil drawings by Finish illustrator Minni Havas. This one is probably one of my favorites.

Music Video - You've Got The Love



Artist - Joshua Petker

I'm not usually impressed by paintings (that quite a generalization actually) but sometimes they just speak to me. So I can't really explain why but I really like LA-based Joshua Petker's work, not that they aren't simply beautiful of course.


Meet the Illustrators - Wonman Kim

A new addition to the Meet the Illustrators series, an interview with multi-talented illustrator and designer Wonman Kim.

1. What is Illustration for you, in the general sense of the term?

I dare say illustration is part of my life. Looking back on my childhood I used to like to draw something and show it to everybody. It has always been a very natural behavior for me. Now, it is fantastic to be making illustrations as a graphic designer, book illustrator and/or concept designer.

2. Why/when did you start 'illustrating' (personally and/or professionally)?

I liked drawing and illustrating since my childhood. I studied a Ba in Business at college so I am basically a self-taught artist (I was influenced by my elder brother, who studied Fine Art in college). I began my career in 1998 as a key animator in an Animation studio, which I did for 2 years. I then moved on to a Gaming company where I worked as a character and BG designer. I also did a couple of illustrations for children books and novel covers. Now I am working as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. Sometimes, I'd make various t-shirt and toy designs on the side.

3. When considering illustration, there seems to be a fine line between design and fine art. Where do you think your personal practice stands and why?

I think my practice stands closer to design that fine art. Maybe it's because i emphasize more on how attractive the product will be. I think that design are made more for the point of view of the customer than the artists.

4. How do you see the future of Illustration?

 I think the future of illustration will be more diversified and specialized. Many illustrators will have to explore new fields of illustrations and more new and exciting media.

Work in Progress - Pop

For our latest university project we had to create a music video for a band we had to approach.
We ended up getting in touch with The Magic Lantern, a lovely London-based instrumental band, and are now making an animation for their song Somebody Told Me.

Here are a couple of my sketches for the animation, which I'll post here once it's done with!
