Raphael Vicenzi

These beautiful, delicate, striking images by Raphael Vicenzi are mouth-watering. I can’t get enough of his truthful yet tender images.

A Drawing a Day

Studio 1482 has started One Drawing a Day, where you can find daily doodles from the desks to the internet. What a fun project! I’ll find pages and pages of thumbnails and strange sketches strewn all over my desk, but I’m not sure that they are worthy of posting. Sometimes I don’t even remember what they were for! That’s the best… Studio 1482 has some nice work on their site too. Happy doodling!


Illustration NOW: Amazing artists from around the world

Illustration Now is an amazing book my sister bought at Urban Outfitters a few years back. Edited by Julius Wiedmann, this comprehensive guide showcases 150 of today’s best commercial editorial illustrators from 50 countries. Each entry highlights examples of recent work and also includes artist’s contact info, awards, and work philosophy. I stole this book from my sister for design inspiration and everyday we lay it open to a new page, depending on our mood. This has definitely been a source of conversation in my house. Here are some of the artists that caught my eye.
