Scott Brundage is a Connecticut-born artist who currently lives and works in New York City. He is currently working on a children’s book entitled “A Brain Is For Eating” written from the point of view of a zombie illustrator for young zombies where people are just packaging for food. When not making a children’s book for the undead, Scott creates editorial art for the prestigious New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post.
Skia is crazy about foxes. She describes herself as fox addicted. Unsurprisingly, most of her illustrations feature her favorite animal but there is a couple that doesn’t involve a fox. As a child, she was the leader of a gang called “Die schlauen Füchse” (The clever Foxes). Furthermore, the initials of her real name are R. F. – like Red Fox or Reineke Fuchs. That being said, I’d love to see more of her fox-inspired funky and creative art.
Thanos Tsilis is a Greece based artist who loves to paint dynamic compositions. The subject of his work is rather eclectic and each new one is bound to be a surprise. He somehow manages to fuse realism with a cartoonish style of drawing. Dedicated tourists from the past, lovers, Santa, elves, a Vampire, and Altair from Assassin’s Creed are just a few of the subjects in his work.

Max Kostenko is a character designer from Moscow. He has worked with some of the biggest brand names in the world including VISA, Wallstreet Journal, Mercedes, Volkswagen, and Chanel. Looking at his work, you can certainly see why they’d hire him. His art is fanciful and yet, goes straight to the point. It also has a first glance impact that many ads strive for, and yet fail to achieve.
If you’re a fan of the series A Game of Thrones, you won’t need to take a second look at zippo514′s art to recognize Pyk, John Snow, and White Walkers. His digital renditions of the characters and scenes from the famous HBO series are spot-on. He has an illustration of Shane from the Walking Dead I’m rather partial to. Not much is known about this talented Chinese artist but unknown isn’t untalented. We’re hoping to see more of his excellent work in the future.
Anyone with a spark of imagination can easily recognize FictionChicks digital illustrations. They’re simply stuff we imagined as kids: keeping a pet dragon, a painting coming to life, stepping into a book, and literally living in a tree. FC simply gave life to our childhood imagination in the most artistically accurate way. There’s a subtle realism to her work that hints at its literal origins.
There’s cute, and there’s the next level of cute: Fabo’s creations. The generally round shape, and the big, soulful eyes strike your cuteness chord when you look at Fabo’s creations. Not only are his critters undeniably adorable, they convey a wide range of expressions too; from timid, to curious, to sad. His love for animals is evident in all his work. This native of Honduras is certainly making his country proud.
Ivan Belikov loves making illustrations just for himself. Most of his work does get turned into prints buts he loves doing them for the sake of creating. Isn’t that the point of art? Creation for the purpose of aesthetic pleasure and creative fulfillment. Ivan has a fast-growing number of followers in Behance, a testament to his talent and skill in illustration. His animal hybrids, in particular, are garnering more than their fair share of attention from art enthusiasts.
This guy looks uncannily like a young Hugh Jackman. Artist Alice X. Zhang calls this portrait “The Time Lord”. She also made kickass portraits of Edward Cullen and Harry Potter, but for me, they’re but a sad, second-best. Alice graduated from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design with a major in Graphic Design. After discovering where her innate talents lay, she heartily wishes she’d chosen to major in Illustration instead. She Spends her time painting excellent portraits and does a bit of t-shirt and poster design on the side.
