    Peter Oedekoven is from Germany, but he studied at the California Institute of the Arts where he earned his BFA in Film/Animation. For the past decade he has been working in both the film and game industries for companies such as Disney Feature Animation and Columbia Tri Star. His game backgrounds are wonderful, as are his concept art pieces.

  2. Juan Molinet

    1 / 5

    Juan Molinet is from Argentina, and specialises in character design, art direction and illustration. In his own words:

    “I like robots, ancient cultures, toys, rubberhose animation, food, surrealism, pop culture of any country, kaiju, destruction, obscure things and much more!”

    You can definitely see these being very influential in his style. He works in both 2D and 3D, using digital and traditional methods.

    He has worked in some capacity for Pictoplasma, Cartoon Network, The Guardian, MySpace and DC Shoes.

  3. Kent Williams

    1 / 4

    Presenting the formidable talent of Kent Williams. Working simultaneously as a painter and as a graphic novel artist (amongst other pursuits), he has been contributing to comics since the the early 80s. In 2005 he worked with filmmaker Darren Aronofsky to create The Fountain graphic novel. His expressive brush work attentively combine realism and abstraction. Often in dream-like surrounding, his central characters largely seem to be mid-narrative. I have always seen a strong Egon Schiele influence in Williams’ work, which is especially evident when looking at his pencil work. Keep up-to-date with Williams by checking out his website and blog.

    I recently stumbled on the fantastic work of Roman Muradov through his current Kickstarter project. His charismatic illustrations are created by traditional linework, often inked with a brush, then colours are applied in Photoshop. Some of his previous clients include The New Yorker, Wall Street Journal, GQ, and Dark Horse Comics. To see more of his work check out his website, and feel free to add more money in the already funded Kickstarter kitty.

  5. Fashion Fridays ~ Alina Filipoiu

    1 / 5

    Alina is a freelance illustrator and architecture student from Romania. She uses photography, traditional and digital methods to create her work. Witty, provocative and intelligent, with visuals that’ll send you into a delightful frenzy; that’s how I’d describe her work in a sentence. There’s always something a little bit different and edgy about each piece of work, so I hope you enjoy the post. Thanks for getting in touch, Alina! Head on over to her Behance page to see more.

  6. Vero Navarro

    1 / 4

    Vero Navarro lives and works in Madrid, Spain. She works predominantly using coloured pencils on kraft paper, to great effect. She has also worked using digital media at times, and I found her hand-made clay puppet to be a really beautiful piece of work.

    “I tend to focus on the human figure, nature elements and architecture, but I am always looking for new subjects to explore and have fun with. I really care about details and have this little ‘obsession’ to give every piece an evocative atmosphere which is what I think defines best my illustrations.”

    If you like Vero’s work, her beautiful prints are available on Society6. To see more illustrations and keep up to date with Vero, visit her website.
