Hope Gangloff‘s artistic history is fantastic to read about. These days her large-scale paintings are created from frantic and loose modeling by a long list of volunteers and inanimate objects. I love the intentionally exaggerated features in many of her pieces.

Ian Thomas Miller

Ian Thomas Miller-1-Design Crush

 

The paint- and illustration-block technique of Ian Thomas Miller is a fresh and captivating approach to storytelling. Lots of hands and pop culture references pop up, and Miller also has a gift for photography. Oh, and he’s only 22-years-old, looking forward to more from this guy.

Lisa Lapointe

Three unlikely sources are the inspiration behind Sydney-based Lisa Lapointe‘s illustrations – spiritual, religious, and indigenous mythology. Her primitive works of art take us into a vibrant geometric world that is not necessarily created to please, but to make think.

People watching is one of my all-time favorite pastimes, so I love seeing Bologna-based illustrator Victoria Semykina Antolini credits the activity as an inspiration behind her beautiful creations. She also spends a considerable amount of time indulging her love of ships by frequenting a shipyard, adding an adventurous feel to all of Victoria’s work. Be sure and check out available prints in her shop.

Leonie Bos‘ architectural illustrations make me recall how much I loved my mechanical drawing class in high school. All of those lovely angles determined by math. I really enjoy the halftones she brings to each piece by using traditional printmaking techniques as well.

Agata Wierzbicka

Agata Wierzbicka-1-Design Crush

 

Warsaw-based illustrator Agata Wierzbicka is another artist that seems to be capturing some of my emotions on paper lately. She mainly draws digitally but also uses acrylics, oils, and pencil and experiments in mixing techniques. Agata’s illustrations are characterized by dynamic lines and pastel colors.

Clean lines, large fields of saturated color, and a great mix of both manmade structures and nature. Elena Boils‘ illustrations combine graphics with handmade imagery, resulting in a world I’d love to jump right into.

Making things makes Sandra Eterovic happy, and man oh man does that come through in her work. Her belief that handmade things deserve to be loved infinitely longer than cheap mass produced items is something I hold close to my heart as well. Take a peek at her shop, my favorites are the quirky hand painted wooden sculptures.
