Tattooine

I was just looking at some of my older blog posts – I know I haven’t been updating, for some reason neither blogspot nor wordpress loads from home (we are really contemplating changing our internet service provider since that isn’t the only problem we are having at the moment) – Anyway I came across this one about pixel illustrations of the star wars characters and it reminded this video so here you go:

As a bonus (and for an apology for being absent for a long while, here is a great illustration from Ulises Farinas, also featuring Tattooine. (click on the image for the hi-res version)

Grimm and other Folk Tales

Here are some illustrations made by Cory Godbey about some fairy-folk tales. I like the style very much, and hope you enjoy it too. My faves are The Princess and the Dragon from The Four Clever Brothers and The Troll from the Three Billy Goats (which oddly was one of my favorite stories from preschool.)

boximals

So, I’ve fell in love with these box critters, boximals since I saw the featured comic on FML. Brought to you by Jeffrey Jang, a freelancer graphic designer and illustrator living in Coquitlam, British Columbia. I’d say these are lovely character designs, I especially love the cats and the turtles. Enjoy!

Marius Bauer

Marius Bauer is a very talented designer/illustrator who has fascinating vector work. Here are some samples of his work, and more on his behance portfolio.

Three Panel Soul

Three Panel Soul is a webcomic illustrated by Ian McConville, and written by Matt Boyd. I think this webcomic is a really good one because they try conveying a certain feeling with only three panels. The original comic was called Mac Hall, but apparently the site was hacked, and they moved it to Three Panel Soul.

This one is one of the older ones, and by far one of my favorites:

Imaginism Studios

I love the characters from Imaginism Studios, which my friend Pınar told me about. (Check Pınar’s blog about asian dramas, by the way – the blog is in Turkish.)
