Southbank

Tom Haugomat’s cinematic poster for luxury apartments in a Southbank high-rise. Love how this one illustrates a room while the walls are invisible. I love the way the colors are applied with such contrast. It sucks you in.

Grand Teton National Park

Part of a poster for the Grand Teton National Park. One poster of the Fifty-Nine Parks Print Series, a celebration of the US National Parks. This illustration uses different pattern and texture techniques combined, which makes it really interesting to look at.

The High Authority For Transparency In Public Life

Illustration for a French agency that works to prevent corruption (Haute Autorité pour la transparence de la vie publique). The shadow play is lovely. An excellent execution of shadow and light can elevate an illustration to a whole other level!

Lookout

Beautiful! Wouldn’t mind having a break at this lookout. This illustration has it all: shadow and light are perfectly executed, the color palette creates the exact mood it needs, and the details are all over the place – you can’t get enough of it.

Stacked

“Stacked” is an approach to the large post-war housing estates in Berlin, often built in the form of tower blocks in a fairly uniform fashion. However, when looking closer you find a lot of variation. This photo just looks like a perfect illustration.
