Vector simplicity meets pop-culture style observe:




Ramayana: Divine Loophole

Artist and veteran Pixar animator Sanjay Patel lends a lush, whimsical illustration style and lighthearted voice to one of Hindu mythology’s best-loved and most enduring tales. Teeming with powerful deities, love-struck monsters, flying monkey gods, magic weapons, demon armies, and divine love, Ramayana tells the story of Rama, a god-turned-prince, and his quest to rescue his wife Sita after she is kidnapped by a demon king. This illustrated tale features over 100 colorful full-spread illustrations, a detailed pictorial glossary of the cast of characters who make up the epic tale, and sketches of the work in progress. From princesses in peril to gripping battles, scheming royals, and hordes of bloodthirsty demons, Ramayana is the ultimate adventure story presented with an unforgettably modern touch.

Exciting forms of creativity streaming out of the Far East these days. Magnificent t-shirts that I don’t understand – but love – and magazines that make your eyeballs hurt (in a good way).

It’s nice to see great vector art happening all over the world. If you are a vector illustrator and you have a Behance Portfolio, take a moment and join our group.
If you don’t have a Behance portfolio – you should. Trust me.

(video) INSPIRATION – Wall Street Journal “Hedcut” Drawings

Here is a really interesting video that explains the process of how they produce those iconic stipple portraits in the WSJ:

“The Wall Street Journal is as famous for its iconic “hedcuts” — the tiny, pointillist portraits that dot the pages of the newspaper — as for its financial coverage. But how, exactly, do you draw one, and why has the Journal embraced them?

The Journal’s Brian Aguilar talked to some of the eight artists who draw the portraits, and produced a video that documents the painstaking, time-consuming process behind them. (Each portrait takes two to five hours to complete.)

Aguilar also uncovered the history behind the use of the drawings — including the fact that they are designed to mimic the portraits that appear on currency.”
