dragaoads Fairy Tales and Batman – Illustrations by Francisco Valle

Francisco Valle is a Brazilian illustrator and art director. His quirky series “Stomachache” is, excuse the pun, a bellyful of laughs. The series features a couple of well-known and well-liked public figures who appears to be great gastronomical discomfort over the remains of their arch nemesis. Apparently, Batman and President Obama have bitten off more than they could chew. Francisco’s other works are just as wacky, if not more so. My personal favorite features a rescued damsel, a knight in shining armor, and a dragon engrossed in reading fairy tales.

Yet another talented artist joins the ranks of the unnamed. This gifted artist goes by the name A-D-I–N-U-G-R-O-H-O on his deviantART page. Not much else is known about the artist except for the fact that he’s from Indonesia. The meagerness of the artist’s personal details is more than made up for by the incredible amount of detail to be found in his work. The body of A-D-I–N-U-G-R-O-H-O’s work is made up of celebrities but an odd portrait is found here and there.

Fractals are basically a mathematical concept wherein a geometric pattern is repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes. Joe’s work goes beyond creating simple fractal shapes. His designs utilize a bit of abstract 3D graphics as well. Joe’s creations resemble the yin&yang, shells, leaves, and flowers – all rendered in mind-blowing color and detail.
