Intergalactic Gentleman, vintage meets surreal
The intergalactic gentleman is a digital illustration which mixes vintage illustration elements with a bit of surreal imagery. This design started with a concept, which evolved to create a quite different exploration. Initially, I wanted to create a digital illustration of a gentleman only, with a high degree of realism. However, after about halfway, I decided to drop this idea and make the design a bit more bizarre, surreal, and add fantastical elements. The final design features a vintage gentleman, with what appear to be overlaid stars or bright speckles, and a bit of blue glow coming from inside his eyes. I might have gotten the idea of the blue, penetrating eyes from reading Frank Herbert's Dune recently.
Follow the music.
Follow the music is a design with music lovers in mind. It doesn't matter what genre of music you prefer, as long as you love music deeply. The design features what appears to be a giant sun coming over desert dunes. The sun, however, is a giant vinyl record, with a red center and black surface with minimal details hinting at highlights. The design is circular, and features circles within circles, and many curves. This creates a definite feeling of motion, smoothness, and ease. The design is meant to transmit a message: follow the music wherever it may lead, and let it be a sun that illuminates your path, no matter how tortuous. The design is deeply inspired in vintage travel posters and their aesthetic.
The dreamer: floating away on a hot air balloon.
This digital illustration is titled The Dreamer. It features a vintage hot air balloon, floating through the skies, accompanied by 6 clouds. Inside the vintage air ballon, The Dreamer rests, with a top hat and no worries in the world. The hot air balloon is blue and orange, and the whole artwork has a vintage, turn of the century feel to it. I was inspired by old illustrations depicting what the future of air travel would look like.
