Paula Duță is an exceptional illustrator who specializes in insect etymology.Her passion for drawing is obvious in the pains she took to highlight each detail of her subject.

Paula is actually an interior designer who describes herself as an ‘altogether happy person, dedicated to her work and enjoying life’. I’m looking forwards to seeing more of her awesome insect illustrations in the future. Paula currently lives and works in Romania.

Djanii is a hilarious artist who specializes in creating work incorporating “trompe l’oeil” (French for trick of the eye). He was inspired by street artists and the cartoons created by Ian Stevenson. Djanii recreated Steve’s work in an anamorphic style. He did it to remind himself that “art shouldn’t be so damn serious all the time”. He also did a fantastic 3D image of Ramon Bruin’s skull and butterflies.

Albert Co is a talented artist who specializes in 3D Digital Illustration. Apparently, he also has a thing for Heroes and Legos (Yes, I know, the correct plural form is Lego bricks but Legos rhyme with heroes. Deal with it). One of his more recent series features pop culture icons-turned-into-Lego bricks. His subjects include comic book heroes: Thor, Iron Man, Wolverine, The Hulk, Spiderman, Captain America, The Fantastic Four, and their accompanying villains. He also has quite a few Harry Potter and Lord of The Rings renderings which are quite epic. I love the way he paid attention to detail such as Harry’s scar, Frodo’s sword, and Gandalf’s staff.
Artem Cheboha is an uber talented illustrator and digital painter from Russia. This 26-year-old artist shows a lot of promise. His artwork showcases his active imagination. I love the fact that he chooses complimentary palettes of rich and warm colors for each digital painting. Rhads, as he is known in artistic circles, also dabbles in a bit of speed painting on the side. He is currently based in Saturn, Encelad.
Nate Hallinan is an American concept artist who thought it would be a fun exercise to re-imagine the X-Men characters in an alternate medieval reality. Thus emerged The Order of the X, a group of ‘gifted’ individuals in the service of Lord Charles Xavier. “The Order provides sanctuary and protection to individuals outcast by society due to their innate abnormalities. These people are often misidentified as monsters, demons, warlocks and witches.”. Nate currently works freelance but will be more than happy to work in-house when available.

He’s also a fan of Breaking Bad, Wolverine, Batman, Sherlock, and the Game of Thrones.
