Silence Television

Mar

 

Riders by Silence Television/Gianmarco Magnani
Silence Television is the nom de plume of Peruvian illustrator and designer Gianmarco Magnani. His wonderfully crisp illustrations feature clean figurative work that contrasts nicely with highly-detailed renderings of guitars and motorcycles. The juxtaposition has an air of Manga1 about it, and is reminiscent of Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira, as well as K≈çsuke Fujishima’s You’re Under Arrest!

You can see more over at his site, where you can also order some mighty fine giclée prints to adorn your walls.

Jude Buffum’s 8-bit Movie Portraits

Jan

Babe... Ruth?

Illustrator Jude Buffum has a wonderful set of 8-bit influenced work, including these movie portraits.
His illustration of The Goonies is especially good; much better than the graphics of the original NES game. I could never fault the game’s music though, that theme tune was boss.1

  2. If this fills you with a sense of nostalgia you may want to check out a few other 8-bit audio delights. ↩

New Work From Johnny Wan

Nov

New Work from Jonny Wan

LMA favourite Jonny Wan has recently updated his website and added some new work, including this illustration for Russian magazine Sekret Firmy. I’m not entirely sure what Sekret Firmy is about (it is in Russian after all) but a sneaky peek at their flickr page reveals that they do like themselves some purdy illustrations and tasty layouts.

James Jirat Patradoon

James Jirat Patradoon

James Jirat Patradoon

Occasionally you come across a biography that says everything you want to say in a such a succinct fashion, all you need to do is quote it:

As quoted from his site:

James Jirat Patradoon (born 1985) is an Australian Artist/Illustrator. His frantic images are inspired hyper-masculine mythologies of of biker gangs, rockstars, pro wrestlers, secret societies, and Facebook. Citing Raymond Pettibon and Katsuhiro Otomo as his artistic influences, James’ work is an irreverent take on the stoic nature of macho pop culture.

His works have been exhibited in Sydney, San Diego, and Bangkok; and have appeared in magazines such as Beautiful/Decay, Nylon, ESPN, Complex, Acclaim, Empty, and ILOVEFAKE. He has collaborated with such companies as Ubisoft, Adidas, Diesel, MTV, PepsiCo, Mambo, Grill’d, The Deftones and Ministry of Sound

Boom. Go and look at his work, and when you’re done you can go and buy some of his work. Done.

On John Kenn

Jan

John Kenn’s other worldly illustrations remind me of Haiyo Miazaki meets Tom Gauld with a subtle nod to Cerebus-era Dave Sims. But what really appeals to me is the fact that he renders all of his handsomely intricate penwork on post-it notes, thus catering to my office stationary fetish. Read the rest of this entry »
