Cardon Webb's Sacks

Cardon Webb’s Sacks

The pun in the title refers to, other than Cardon Webb working on book covers for Oliver Sacks, sacks of talent the man has. This particular idea of the in-house designer for Vintage Books was initially mothballed, only to later be put back for discussion and eventually realized. We can see that the reason for...
The Small Stakes

The Small Stakes

Jason Munn, a graphic designer, makes band, concert and movie posters, from his independent studio The Small Stakes. He has a very minimalistic, economic style of design – clean lines and two, sometimes three colors. These characteristics of style would be a limiting factor for most designers, not technically but idea-wise. The way Mr. Munn...
Raising the Bar

Raising the Bar

Noma Bar is an Israeli artist, whose works have already become a reference for aspiring illustrators and designers. Born into a family of artists and graduated as one in 2000, Mr. Bar has quickly developed a unique style – incorporating simple yet telling shapes into one another, to create strong messages that don’t really have...
Oh, the complexity!

Oh, the complexity!

You have painters, graphic designers, illustrators, sculptors, people who create installations, and then, you have Scott Moore – the incorporationist. We know we’ve just made up a word, but believe it’s appropriate.

Watercolor Comments

Here is a totally new form of social commentary art. It’s not graffiti, not street art, it’s not loud but subtle and seemingly interested in freakish situations involving animals. Might even seem like animal studies with a weird twist. In fact, every one of these, actually very large, watercolor paintings is packed with an abundance...

A Different Set of Caricatures

A Different Set of Caricatures

An Israeli artist, Hanoch Piven has been delighting the world with his works for over 20 years now. It’s a potpourri of collage, graphic design and illustration with everyday objects and toys incorporated for that special accent that always seems to sit so well. In the end though, we seem to have a caricature –...
Exponential Character

Exponential Character

To start off, did you know it’s proven that you recognize people in caricatures faster than same people in photographs? Caricatures overly accentuate those features of someones appearance that are most characteristic – those that we normally tend to memorize and associate with a person. It’s the combination of familiarity and an apparent distortion that...
Stitch a Portrait

Stitch a Portrait

Embroidery is a craft where you use a needle and thread to “stitch-draw” on sheets of fabric. It’s a bit of a coarse technique, looking at the final product, so it was never adopted by the fine Arts. Still, it’s been around for ages, mostly used for creating patterns – some very intricate and large...
