  • nice dhear my friend! up 4ever!

    i have a question that has been bugging me a bit about this blog — why is jessica cannon (previous post)’s work “painting” while this is “illustration”? it looks like painting to me, and it seems like a lot of the time the “illustration” label is applied to many things on this blog it shouldn’t be applied to.

    • a fair question, i could have easily labeled it both. if you look at Dhear’s portfolio you will see everything from grafitti to ink work and i decided it was more illustration (eventhough the work pictured is painting)

      someone like Jessica is only showing painting so i labeled it as such.

      i could easily eliminate the “painting” label and call all of the illustrations and paintings “drawing” because that’s really what it is. there are similar issues when deciding if someone’s work is illustration or graphic design – sorry if it bothers you!

  • this actually raises a great topic for discussion, how would you define each of these things?

  • sofia

    well, something that is commissioned work, for a magazine, newspaper, etc — illustration. something that is painting, (ink, watercolor, gouache, whatever) – or drawing — with an “illustrative style” is still fine art.

    • i guess we just have different points of view, i have never solely associated “illustration” with commissioned work.

      so if i were to draw something for my own enjoyment they are drawings but if i sell them to a magazine they become an illustration and are no longer fine art? just clarifying what you are saying

  • sofia

    well I suppose I mean, I’ve taken illustration classes which focus on caricatures, etc, creating artwork for clients…a client contacts you and asks for an illustration for something, say a band for a music review, rather than you selling your artwork to them. or in the sense of scientific or natural history illustrations that go in books, these things are asked of the artist by a client.

    i think the word itself has very commercial roots and what i’ve come across, negative connotations. I’m in art school and when somebody refers to my work as “illustration” in a critique, it is meant in a critical way — as in, this looks like it was made to accompany an article or something and belongs in a commercial rather than a fine art realm. I certainly don’t agree with this; like you said, once you sell art to a magazine it doesn’t stop being fine art, but I also don’t think everything that has a graphic style should be classified as illustration.

  • this is really just an argument over semantics – the word illustration doesn’t have negative connotations for me. i see the word drawing and the word illustration as interchangeable so when you see it used on this site i am not implying the work is commercial i am simply saying they are drawings.

  • sofia

    good point. I wish the people around me used the terms interchangeably as well.

  • hahah nice discussiion

    greets everyboy from cocotelandindandolilandialandd

    thanks jeff

  • yeah the illustration/painting question , i recently participated on a book that asked that question to 25 artists, it was a nice topic for a book
    here is a litle preview of it

  • wow! awesome work….love it

  • Alexis

    dhear tiene un exceso de desarrollo tecnico que le resulta incontrolable. jajaja su trabajo parece que lo ubiera echo no 1 misma persona si no un monton de gentes diferentes alrededor de tdo el mundo. le hace falta dejar de ver tantos blogs libros y revistas y ponerse a trabajar en un estilo propio, por que ver lo que hace es casi como cuando le cambias de estacion al radio de una estacion a otra sin que nada tenga relacion entre si
    aun asi me gusta lo que hace pero pienso que le falta dejar de copiar tanto todo lo que mira en la internet y ponerse a sacar un estilo propio ya que de lo contrario siempre seguira igual siendo la copia de otros

    • totally desigree with you. (just for you to know haha)

  • orale y porque no nos pones una referencia de donde saca sus cosas dhear alexis

  • MISS T

    AJÚA!!!!
    DHEAR FOR PRESIDENT!
    JAJAJAJAJ

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
