Dustin d'Arnault updates... all the time.

This was a picture I took a few months back when I worked at Radium. What's crazy, is that Dustin rarely moves from this position. This is that kid in school who carried his sketchbook everywhere and doodled whatever and whoever he saw. As you can see from his portfolio, he's a beast. He taught me a lot about color, composition and just finding my own illustration style. He's an awesome guy, always down for collaborating or doing commission works. Young in age, but mature in style. Not to mention, he does some sick caricatures. Take a look at his work and be ready to look at some amazing work and inspired.

Justin Harder Updates

I had the pleasure of working with this fellow at Radium. He taught me a lot of what I know today and definitely has inspired me to always push the boundaries and to keep producing... all the time. By far, he is one of the most talented guys you'll ever meet, not to mention he's a great friend as well. Designing, directing, painting, acting... you name it, he does it. Sit back and get lost in Justin's work; or as everyone calls him, Juice.

Fall & Winter Photo

Love these two seasons in the year. Fall for it's colors, and winter for the emotions it ignites in people. Everyone feels like a kid again. Love it.

Make It Better

Came across this visual amazing type animation the other day. Definitely a fresh new look on making fun animation... better :) Typography and the transitions are spot on. Concept is original. Hope you enjoy this piece as much as I did. Sebastian Bap was the animator on the project, and also worked on one of my other favorites, Buildings and Vampires.
Check out other work by Sebastian here.

Limbert Fabian updates.

Working at Radium I've had the opportunity to work with some really great designers. One of my favorite designers of all time being Limbert Fabian. Amazing illustrator. He's got a good eye, and I'm sure you'll love his work as well. The above image has always been one of my favorite illustrations.

Invisible Creature

Invisible Creature has always been a studio I've always admired. Experimenting with different mediums, styles, and keeping it fresh, they never cease to disappoint. Check out their website and fall in love with their work as I have. Best thing about them is that they're brothers; inspired by their grandfather was also an illustrator/designer. Enjoy! And be sure to go shopping at their online store. Spend $30 and you'll get this sweet print.
