Alx a.k.a. Begemott, is a New York-based artist whose work speaks of an imagination both broad in scope and depth. His art is at times wistful, childish, morbid, or playful. His work “Sweet Halloween Dreams” has recently come to the attention of Hollywood and a film loosely based on his work is already in the works. When asked about it, Begemott responded: “I think that the drawing implies a larger story, and it’s probably easy to relate to. The night is scary when you are a kid, and I’m sure many children have comforted themselves by imagining that something in the room protected them from all the imaginary dangers in the dark.” The film is to be produced by none other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in collaboration with New Line Cinema.

alessandro diddi 42 Brought to Life – Anamorphic Drawings by Alessandro Diddi

Alessandro Diddi is a 42-year-old Italian artist does freehand anamorphic paintings that are so real, they’ll send shivers up your spine. Not all his drawings are as creepy as the one above, but they’re all pretty convincing. He said: ““I want my drawings to put across the message that the eye can trick the mind and make you believe that there are dimensions that are not really there.” He also added that it’s important for people to realize that it isn’t necessary to consume a large amount of resources to achieve something interesting. All you need is a pencil and something to draw on, and you can create something really magical.

Furry Felines – Illustrations by Daesiy

sun ray by daesiy Furry Felines – Illustrations by Daesiy

Daesiy (aka Dae) is an 18-year-old American artist who creates amazingly detailed digital illustrations. Her account over at deviantART has a ton of watchers. What I love about her work is that her animals (mostly feline or canine in nature) are naturally posed and proportioned. She accepts commissions, but she’s a little busy at the moment. What with packing up and saying goodbye to friends and family before she leave for college. With the quality of her non-professional work, I can’t wait for her to go pro. Dae is definitely worth watching out for.

Kate Frolova is a freelance illustrator from Moscow. She also goes by the name Ekaterina Frolova in some of her artistic accounts in the web. She is known for her wacky and highly cartoonish illustrations. Menacing pumpkins, worm-eating-apples and nectar-swilling bees are but a small part of her repertoire. My favorite is the adorable bunny rabbit dressed as Hannibal Lecter.

Carlos Dattoli4 Gone to Seed – Comic Illustrations by Carlos Dattoli

Carlos Dattoli is a freelancie artist who specializes in digital illustration. He utilizes photoshop to do all his paintings from scratch. His subjects range from post-apocalyptic horrors to alien bat-things. One of his more recent work features a crane-assisted Superman, a Segway-riding Flash, and an out-of-breath Dynamic Duo. It seems that the lack of super villains to foil has resulted in our heroes letting themselves go in the kitchen. Increased mass notwithstanding, these no-longer-lean, mean, crime-fighting machines are still fighting.

Vince Low5 Squiggles – Portraits by Vince Low

Portraits are difficult, but Malaysian artist Vince Low has not only mastered the art of portraiture, he draws them using nothing but a bunch of squiggles. At a glance, they look like rough sketches but they’re actually perfect portraits just as they are. He has drawn, with great accuracy, the portraits of Rowan Atkinson, Eddie Murphy, Will Smith, Samuel L. Jackson, Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, and Jack Nicholson. Vince is currently the head illustrator in an art studio in Malaysia.

blue eyed dragon by jldragonfly600 393 Fantastic Pencil Portraits by J. leigh

J. Leigh is a 29-year-old American artist who draws fantastic portraits in pencil. According to her deviantART account, she likes interesting or moving music, hates wallpaper (she prefers paint, but this option usually leads to problems seeing the screen), and is NOT a resident of this dimension. Her personal quote is: “Rocking the boat would NOT be such a problem if everyone in it knew how to swim….”. Oh, and her skin of choice is one that isn’t judged at first glance. Clever answers to otherwise boring questions, but it is the level of detail in her work that makes her stand out from all the other pencil artists out there. I love the way she uses primary colors to highlight certain aspects of her subjects.
