To say that Fabian Schlaga is a comic book fan is an understatement. His illustrations of the characters in the series The Uncanny X-men are some of the best I’ve seen. His work is faithful to the original cartoon series I remember watching as a kid. The costume, the attitude, and end even the iconic poses are the same. This 25-year-old German artist is someone I’ll definitely keep an eye out for in the future.

A Scary Bunny, A T-Rex Named Reginald, and A Poster for A Movie You Wish They Made – Artwork by Zillabean

why so sirius   by zillabean d5eveze A Scary Bunny, A T Rex Named Reginald, and A Poster for A Movie You Wish They Made – Artwork by Zillabean

Zillabean is a 26-year old artist from the United States whose wacky sense of humor is evident in every one of his work. The poster for the fake movie Harry Potter and the Darkest Knight is one of my favorites. If it was a real movie, I would have watched it based on the poster alone. I’m also partial to his Layton and Reginald series. Reginald is Layton’s adorably well-behaved pet T-Rex who acts exactly like a Golden Retriever. Zillabean’s murderously grinning bunny is also a riot.

Recently they commissioned Jung von Matt, a Germany-based advertising company for one of their many minimalist ads. The results are indeed on the spare side but anyone who uses just a bit of imagination could easily see the Lego characters for who they really are. Have fun guessing!

464002 Gamers’ Game Faces by Timothy Saccenti

Gamers are a breed apart. Timothy Saccenti did a great job capturing their game faces when Sony commissioned him for their ad campaign for Sony PlayStation 3. Every grin of triumph, frown of frustration, and grimace of anger was perfectly captured. The mood lighting and the contrast is simply wonderful and highlights the emotions of the players. Saccenti is a director and photographer whose high quality work can be seen in many other ads and music videos.
