I don’t know much about these paintings other than the artist name is Michelle Morin, they are available to buy via her Etsy shop and I really like them.

Sergio Membrillas is a Spanish illustrator with some really lovely work. His site can be found here.

Jay is a Graphic Designer, Illustrator & Artist from the Isle of Man…and he’s good!

Illustrator, designer and good friend ‘Emily Forgot‘ updates with fresh new work and a separate shop site to sell selected prints and limited wares. To celebrate the official launch of her shop she will be giving away an A2 “Hobby Alphabet” print.

If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning simply follow my Twitter feed and tweet:
FORGOT SHOP giveaway over at Follow @emily_forgot, & RT this to win a “HOBBY ALPHABET” A2 print

The competition closes on the 15th December when the winner will be chosen at random.

Despite the less-than-ideal photos that don’t do his work justice, Jay Howell still manages to impress and amuse. You will have a really fun time looking round his blog/website I am sure.

Quenched Consciousness is a cracking little Tumblog exploring the work of Jean Giraud, aka Gir, aka Moebius. Some NSFW, btw. Thanks to @TomGauld for the twitteration

Paleo-Future is a brilliant website dedicated to past visions of the future. As you would expect the images from the 60s depicting the future (our present) are some of the most stylish but, it is the ones of ‘flying machines’ and weather generators predicted in the late 1800s that are by far the funniest and most interesting.

I am quite the fan of Mike Mitchell’s patterns. Fun yet slightly menacing.

Some excellent illustrations from Alice Tait. I particularly like the drawings of food, I can’t remember the last time I felt hungry as a result of looking through an illustrator’s portfolio.

Matthew Hawkins creates enchanting and seductive images which reach out from the page and beckon you deeper and deeper into his imaginary world. Pirates, mysterious creatures, travelers and exotic women inhabit luscious landscapes constructed
from an unexpected combination of studies, doodles and sketches.

Check out his beautiful work.

License to Inspire is CIA’s (The Central Illustration Agency’s) book debut.

Taken from the Conservatives Manifesto, my favourite thing about this illustration is that none of the cogs actually interlock, implying an ironically more realistic possibility than was perhaps intended. Nice.

I stumbled across Antti’s work a few years ago, when he contributed (Poster) to the ‘Now Showing’ project I was curating. He’s recently updated with some lovely stuff for Levis, Nixon and various others. Hot as ever!

Poems and Doodles and that!

Dan, here at Six pointed me towards the work of the young and talented Zhou Fan. Based on his childhood dreams, these paintings are an obscure and vivid tale of an alternative world; Detailed and colourful reenactments which have attracted a lot of attention through numerous exhibitions in New York, Germany and Shanghai. Definitely worth checking out.
