You dont have to be a racing car fan to appreciate this video. I always knew that being a driver Le Mans cant be easy but the amount of sheer force that they endure for three hours straight in a 24 hour race is unbelievable. The amount of pressure on their necks alone from the helmet would probably make me break down in about 2 minutes and thats on a good day. This beautiful done ad ...

Get ready for a cute overload! We all need a bit of Kawaii in our lives, and thats exactly what artist Ivan Camelo (a.k.a Vancamelot), has provided in his work.

Every once in a while an artist comes along with idea thats completely out of the box. It leaves you thinking, “how did they come up with that idea?” Well, thats exactly what went through my head when I saw these drawings by Japanese artist Sato. The collection is called Torigun, featuring a series of magnificent illustrations of birds in military uniforms, each with a different style and origin. Its strange how he can create birds that ...

This is unbelievable! I could stare at these images for hours, even days and still find something new. This pixel perfection is made by the endlessly creative eBoy. eBoy is actually more than one individual, it was founded in Berlin by Steffen Sauerteig, Kai Vermehr and Svend Smital in 1997. These three artists painstakingly create every pixel to create something so unique that it is instantly recognizable as their work no matter where their art ends up. They’ve ...

I truly enjoy looking at art created with a minimalistic style, its that concept of seeing certain features then having your brain associate them with real people which fascinates me. Stanley Chow is an award winning, Grammy nominated illustrator from Manchester, England. His work is truly his own, though many artists have attempted this minimalistic style, none have done it was as much talent as Chow. Chow created portraits and caricatures of many celebrities and ...

It is no secret that Green and I love simplified art like that of Ali Al-Sumayin that we posted about a few days back featuring simple shapes with an effective outcome.

Coca-Cola has really been stepping it up lately from an artistic point of view and I have to say that they are doing a great job. Coca-Cola is celebrating their 125th annoversary and since the beginning, they have always been ahead of the competition when it comes to their appreciation for art. Who can deny the iconic presence of their ads during the 40s and 50s? or their pin up poster girls, like it or ...

I seriously loved this animation. It was made for a TV series called Kabeer Awi. The whole show is about a guy who finds out that he has a brother thats lived his life in the States, so one brother speaks English while the other speaks Arabic. The animation is basically a rap battle between the two which is extremely funny. “My rap is like an ocean and your rap is like a lake” I ...

I came across this clever set of infographic illustrations showcasing the horrible cliches we see in just about every movie. I think movie creators follow these cliches because it is an easy ticket into creating a movie in a faster time and make sure they’re not experimenting and basically be safe. I think that gets old over time and these cliches has indeed aged too much. This whole infographic was in fact a very clever campaign ...

I love these minimalist Marvel posters! These designs were created by Marko Manev, an artist and graphic designer based in Skopje. Instead of drawing the actual superheroes in their full form, he uses symbols that have become synonymous with the actual character to represent them. Its strange how a few lines and colors can bring out a whole concept in your mind. I guess it goes with the whole idea behind good branding. The way ...
