Superficie: Possible, plausible, potential

Miguel Nobrega uses coding and felt pens to create computer artwork. His ‘Superficie: Possible, plausible, potential,’ series of illustrations demonstrates how computer coding can help create unseen structures. He uses a code to program a drawing device and Nobrega switches the color and thickness of the pens to produce different iterations of the computer artwork…

Still Lifes by Holly Coulis

Holly Coulis has developed her own style for her still life pieces and it is carried throughout most of her still life pieces. There is almost a sense of questioning what the still life is depicting and takes a while to understand what perspective we are looking at the fruit/bowls/cups at. The outline of the…

Peter Gehrman

I came across this artist spotlight on boooooom of Peter Gehrman and really loved all of the pieces, especially this one. The colors work so well and I especially love how theres so much movement and so much for the viewer to explore. The way that the little keyhole is cut out makes it seem…

moving posters

This one moving poster I found on dribble is super fun! The colors work great together and there is a lot of movement, which the piece seems to be built on as the text suggest ‘move’. I really like how it is a complete loop and you can’t really determine exactly where the poster starts…

Sebastian Curi

I really like Sebastian Curi’s pieces. I first found these pieces on the BOOOOM blog and then decided to visit the behance feature that was linked to the boom blog. I also then checked out Sebastian Curi’s website and realized that he has done work for so many big name companies that we see and…

“New color in the times of slow coffee”

I immediately thought about the piece Rhetoric of the Image (1964), Roland Barthes, that we discussed in class when I came across the pieces created by Terrence Caviar & Kristin Texeira. Particularly the idea that the Rhetoric of the Image reminding people of still life paintings. I really like the juxtaposition of the images and…

Super Mario Bros Game Development

I loved this game growing up so this video about the history of the first Super Mario Bros game is super interesting to watch! The way it was first developed was first drawing out the course on graph paper as pieces of a sliding map, which is very similar to approaches taken for pixel art…

Jennet Liaw’s Strava Mural

While we were scrolling through Behance’s 2020 Design Trends, several of the featured pieces and trends mentioned including typography, bold colors, and bicolor reminded me this one mural I remembered liking a lot when I came across Jennet Liaw’s pieces a while ago. It is such an interesting piece to look at because it takes…

Lale Westvind’s Animated Comics

This piece and Lale Westvind’s other pieces remind me of the “structured chaos” we used to describe some other pieces in class. There is also a lot of motion in this piece that also made me think of the sonic the hedgehog sprite sheet and the olympic/stadium like lines and flags piece we discussed in…
