Philippe Apeloig

I’m sorry that it has taken so long to make another post, but summer school has recently started which has stunted my free time. I will do my best to make periodical updates (hopefully weekly).

ANYWAYS, this designer, Philippe, is awesome! He transforms his type into imagery. The compositions he creates are dynamic, colorful, fluid, and innovative. He has tons of his artwork on his website. Without further adieu, Mr. Apeloig’s work:


SHCH Graphics Group

This group has loads of talent with a signature style. These images are really the tip of the iceberg as far as the extent and breath of their portfolio goes. Definitely check out their website to see the complete collection!

Experiments in Life Drawing

I took a life drawing class last winter and it was something I really didn’t have any previous experience in. Much of what I did in these compositions (textures, colors, compositions) is spontaneous and impromptu. I am happy with how they turned out, but they could easily be improved as some of my choices weren’t the best. Both of the nude compositions are of models, and the other two drawings are of me (my portrait and my feet) and were drawn using a mirror. At any rate, here’s my work:

Christo and Jeanne Claude

This tag team creates larger than life environmental art. Their portfolio is incredible, leaving the viewer to wonder how it is possible to create some of them. I am in awe of their inspiring and rare vision.

Ryan Swanson

Ryan Swanson is a very unique designer. He combines objects and bodies creating such dynamic and eye-catching compositions. He attended SCAD (woot woot!) for his undergrad and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has introduced me into a style that I would like to explore with to try and make it my own. The link to his website is in the sidebar.

Os Gemeos & Blu

Amazing graffiti artwork in Lisboa, Portugal. I don’t know how they can create something so huge and make it so flawless. The painted shadows really seem to make the figures pop! I especially like the crown that uses the attic windows. Look for the links to these artists in the sidebar.
