Lorna G’s Grand Budapest Hotel

I know I’m probably breaking some kind of law, but I have to confess: I’ve never seen ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’!! I know this is criminal, but from the trailer, although very beautiful, it looked a bit surrealist, which isn’t really my cup o’ tea. (I may be wrong though, never judge a book by its cover an’ all!). However, I can heartily appreciate this piece of art by graphic designer and illustrator Lorna G. Isn’t it beautiful! So crisp and colourful. This is definitely my cup o’ tea!

Barcelona based Lorna has a website, Behance page and also a shop in which you can find all sorts of goodies: IPhone cases, pillows, art prints and stationary to satisfy your ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ desires.

 

 

 

 


Ricky and David : Illustration

So I’ve been doing a bit more painting and I’ve two pieces to post on today. One is another of my Fall 2015 illustrations, the other is a very stylish Ralph Lauren advertisment that I could only think about painting once I’d seen. So, here we go…

David Koma

First off we have one of my favourite pieces from David Koma’s London show, I wasn’t sure how it would translate to an illustration as it’s quite minimal and dark, but it worked okay. There’s a  few flaws in the shadows and highlights, but I like the general 60’s vibe. I seem to be focusing on that decade with my illustrations, even though the shows themselves were undoubtedly all about the 70’s…

‘Ricky’

Next we have a very stylish advertisement from Ralph Lauren for his ‘Ricky’ sunglasses, hence the name. Don’t you just wish you could look this elegant and pulled together all the time! Anyway, I really enjoyed this one, there is something about large expanses of black that bring out the other features really nicely. ‘Ricky’ is available as prints in A4/8×10″ and also A5/ 5X7″ at the shop
