The new Dark Horse Comics series, Veil, has finally brought him to the attention of American comics fans. His artwork, with it’s unique coloring style, perfectly fits the moody atmosphere of Greg Rucka’s story.

Fejzula has contributed covers to Cthulhu, created the science-fiction album ‘Central Zéro’ at Soleil Productions, and co-created the series ‘Nephilim’ at Delcourt.

The Australian Graphic Supply Collective: Tuts and Type

beziers

In my journey towards becoming somewhat of a graphic designer, I’ve gone through many bouts of chocolate-fueled rage, cursing when I can’t figure out how to line up my beziers correctly, or how exactly to create a seamless repeat pattern. Although there are loads of tutorials online, the Australia Graphic Supply Company is set to become the “square one” learning source for budding designers and typographers of all types (pun not intended).

Self-described “pixel-wranglers,” Dave and Laura Coleman are a husband-and-wife team working out of Sydney, Australia, focusing on a wide range of visual services from photography and branding to illustration and tattoo design. While Laura mostly manages operations & finances, Dave handles the creative side of their shared business–and both of them share a serious passion for design, photography and lettering.

They host a selection of their own client work on their website, but the primary focus is on their community and growing tutorial section. What’s neat to see is that their tutorial aesthetic matches up perfectly with that of their professional projects–the aim is clearly to give the viewer proper insight into the process of creating high-quality design and typography while simplifying the process down to layman’s terms.

One of my favorite tutorials was Creating a Hand-Lettered Logotype from Beginning to End–I’ve included some screenshots and a video below.

Dave and Laura were briefly living and working abroad in Oviedo, Spain, but are now in the process of returning to their home base in Sydney. To follow along with their adventures, check out their travel blog.

I’ve also included a couple links to my other favorite tutorials below:

No Pain, No Grain (How to Create a Seamless Vector Wood Grain Pattern)

So What’s the Big Deal with Horizontal & Vertical Bezier Handles Anyway?

I can’t wait for more exciting tutorials and developments from the AGSC. Thanks so much to Dave and Laura for sharing their knowledge with us! Follow along with them on theirwebsiteTwitter, and Pinterest.

Artist: João Ruas

Just as geologists observe minutiae within rock strata and so deduce the conditions extant during their formation, so too will future generations of illustrologists be able to sift through banks of images and draw conclusions from their compacted layers. And thusly it is that traces of naively-drawn bears, owls, and deer; nostalgia-addled mid-century aesthetics; characters bespattered with tattoos and sporting large volumes of facial hair; and a preponderance of stuff inside equilateral triangles is what will be seen to comprise the petrified illustrative sediment of the early Twentieth Century.

And yet amongst the accreted layers of silt there’s something wholly less prosaic to be found – indeed, something that is literally otherworldly. That thing is cosmic dust. No one can say for sure whence this star-stuff comes – beyond a vague suggestion that it has voyaged across unfathomably vast gulfs of space and time before becoming sandwiched between layers of pond scum – but one thing is for sure, and that’s that it really couldn’t have less to do with conditions here on Planet Earth. And, once again, it is just so in the fictitious field of illustrology: at times an artist is encountered that seems to have so little in common with the prevailing milieu that they might just as well have come from a different world entirely. Such an artist is João Ruas.

The singular nature of this artist’s work is immediately recognisable. Rendered largely in brooding monochrome with judiciously-applied flashes of colour or gilding, his paintings have more than a little about them of the cartoons of da Vinci – were the Renaissance polymath to take to illustrating hallucinations of the relics of some long-vanished culture, that is. To view Ruas’s portfolio is to witness a parade of sinuous and melancholy figures amidst bones and masks and fantastic costumes, and attended by a menagerie of the baleful and the feral. His animals are creatures out of myth described in the language of dream, and as far from the prevailing tweeness of their contemporaries as is a wolf from a Chihuahua. Amongst other places, this mythical aesthetic has found its perfect application in the celebrated covers that Ruas has produced for the Fables series from Vertigo Comics (see the latter pair of images here).

Those who want to see more would be well advised to conduct an image search, as Ruas’s dedicated sector of cyberspace contains only a tiny fraction of the multitudes of his captivating (and at times NSFW) images that are to be found around the web. They may be scintillae within the strata, but they’re also a reminder that somewhere out there there’s stardust to be found.

Sketching out your creative dream

442a421877826b5e25e6828df7d0a562

We all have dreams and aspirations they grow within us from any age, from the time we’re two years old and scribbling on any blank piece of paper in sight to the years in university when your dreaming up a life of bigger things you want to do and places you may want to go. Although as time goes by sometimes unless your extremely determined you can feel swayed or lose sight of the things you dreamed of and that’s why you need to grab a pen and sketch them out.

Sketching out your dreams keeps them in sight, gives you a reference to go back to when your feeling a tad lost in your aspirations or feel your not sure where your going. So here are 5 steps to sketching out your own creative dream for 2014.

1.  Grab a huge piece of paper or wallpaper roll across the floor , a couple of pens and your inspiration and start doodling and jotting out your aspirations and future plans.

2 .  Break them down with someone who motivates you the little steps you need to do to work towards those dreams ( They don’t seem so far away when the two of you narrow them down into tiny steps).

3.  Start paving roots and pathways to begin implimenting your plans .

4.  Meet new people and make connections with those who might help you on your way to where you want to be :).

5. Block out those niggling negative thoughts and “I can’t do this”, stay positive if something doesn’t work out brush yourself down and keep going as being self motivated is key and the effort you put in is sure to pay off.
