01. Right & Wrong
Currently working at Fullsix Portugal (opens in new tab), Portuguese graphic designer Duarte Pires (opens in new tab) has an ongoing love affair with vector illustrations and his specialities involve branding, logotypes, and web design. This stunning clown illustration just blew us away. "This was an escape," says the artist. "I was on free thinking/association mode."
02. All the Cats Join in the Club
Fabio Vessoni (opens in new tab) is a graphic designer and illustrator from São Paulo in
Brazil. His poster art is wildly evocative, as this piece showcases in abundance; you can see more of it on his Flickr page (opens in new tab).
03. Best Gift Ever
London based illustrator Beugism (opens in new tab)'s work sits somewhere between contemporary illustration and conceptual art. In his work he uses both traditional and digital techniques and he draws his inspiration from communist murals, Japanese woodcuts and surrealist paintings. This is one of many bird portraits, and we love its playful tone.
04. No Place Like Home
James Oconnell (opens in new tab) is a conceptual creative from Manchester who specialises in design and art direction. This illustration poking fun at the win-a-goldfish fairground tradition hits all the right notes for us.
05. Dyeing dart frog
Freelance illustrator Sara Mena (opens in new tab) works in both digital and traditional, and usually mixes both. This awesome frog design was created with watercolours and Indian ink.
