    Break The Law Of Silence


    I stumbled upon this video recently and thought I’d post it up. I found the combination of real and illustrated imagery quite powerful, so I hope you all like it. Amnesty International is a brilliant charity that does great work and  the more people that hear about these atrocities the better in my opinion.

    Noelle Stevenson

    Noelle Stevenson is still studying illustration at Maryland Institute College of Art but has already developed an impressive style. A fan of all things that can comfortably be tagged as “geeky”, I particularly appreciate Noelle’s (un)healthy affinity to the Scooby Doo gang. I was interested to find out that her work is produced entirely in Photoshop—a great technique that retains all the quirks of traditional hand drawings. Be sure to check out her website for more of her work, or maybe pick up one of her print – do it quick though, I doubt they will stay that cheap for long!

    Manga Mondays ~ Naoki Urasawa

    naoki-urasawa-03 naoki-urasawa-02 naoki-urasawa-01 naoki-urasawa-04

    Artist and writer Naoki Urasawa is something of a national treasure in Japan. Creator of acclaimed work Pluto, Monster, and 20th Century Boys. The latter winning multiple awards including an Eisner Award in 2011, and spawning a trilogy of live-action films. His illustration style is expressive with detailed and textured backgrounds. His characters are full of expression and personality. If you want to get into Urasawa’s work I highly recommend picking up 20th Century Boys.
