Delia Evin

Love these sci-fi fantasy illustrations from Delia Evin! Her watercolor technique is spectacular - such great textural effects, and really nice blending of subtly varying colors - and I mean, Game of Thrones, duh. Check out her site for more work!

Jack Dylan

Jack Dylan says on his site that he "approaches his work in much the way an art director does, imagining first the best solution and then working in that style." This analytic technique is abundantly clear in his portfolio - in much of his recent work, a minimalist and often restricted approach to form and color is wonderfully complimented by the addition of fine details and contrasting accents, while in many of his other pieces, a more playful tone is achieved through elaborate, dense line-work and subtle abstraction. However, no matter what style he chooses to guide him for each piece, his characters are always full of personality and his scenes wonderfully composed. Go take a gander at his website to see just a small sample of his awesomely amazing 10+ year career.

Hiro Nagaoka

Great black and white work from photographer Hiro Nagaoka (who, I should add, is also a classmate of mine at RISD!) You know I am obsessed with medium format and dramatic lighting, so duh, I love all of these. My favorite is probably the image halfway down of the man in the parking lot; despite the candidness of the photo, the composition still manages to be incredibly well thought out. It's both wonderfully symmetrical and yet still very full of movement. You also just have to love all the subtle tone variations in the creamy grey sky above. Mmm. Check out his portfolio for more work.

Jessica Tremp's "Over Unto Silence"

Absolutely loving this series by Jessica Tremp. I think the whole "nature vs. humanity" thing can be an exhausted theme at times, but Jessica manages to arrive at a unique interpretation by favoring varied textures and simplicity of content over dense compositions or complicated attempts at meaning. Check out her site for more work and some other great series.

Anton Van Hertbruggen

Somewhere between midwestern and exotic, cinematic and static, and real and imaginary, Anton's work seamlessly blends unexpected textures and colors to create wonderful narratives full of solitary inhabitants. Visit his website for more wonderful work as well as some fabulous printed material.

Yohan Sacré

Kind of the cutest thing ever, ever. Besides the adorably weird characters, I just love the combined starkness of the monochrome with the light touch of delicate pencil. More pencil work as well as some interesting digital pieces on Yohan's site.

Logan Faerber

Ah! Totally obsessed with the work of Rhode Island born Logan Faerber at the moment. Great use of textures and selectively placed linework. Plus I mean, that sassy redheaded catwoman, guys. Check out his website for more work!
