What’s doing Alexa Maede can look quite normal at the first sight… but you need to look at twice and you’ll discover that her technic is quite unusual. That’s why it’s fantastic. She is painting directly on real people and the final results looks like a paint on a 2d surface. When you see the painted people in real situation, they look like kind of Zombie. Have a look:

This new-zelander illustrator gots an ironic different point of view on images we can have in memory. Every illustration Glennz is doing gots a very creative idea. That makes the difference. His illustration’s style stays very simple in color and shape, it’s the best way to make people focus on your idea. We can guess he is a big fan of Starwars, Mac Gyver, Lego, Transformers, Batman, Vampire, Robocop… Make sure you find the idea behind each illustration:
That was a good surprise when I saw for the first time the work of Laura Bifano. She is a Canadian illustrator and did a serie of 10 illustrations where she paint animals in “pixel’s style”. Simply clever. She says she did this serie because of her love of Nature and video games. I love it too. Hope she will go one step higher if she’s on a new serie.

I’ve always like people who push the limit to new territories. Yacek Yerka is one of them. He is considered as a Surealist painter. For me, he is more simply a talented imaginative painter. He creates crasy landscapes/views with multi dimentions, proportions & perspectives… that push your logic to a different level. As he is painting a lot of details… you almost think that what he is creating exist! Have a look and take your time to observe every cm2.

What a creative way to make your lunch box (Bentō べんとう) looks much more fun! This Japanese Food Art is to eat for real. Bentō (べんとう) is the name given to the simple prêt-a-manger takeout portion. When the Bento is presented in a cute way (a cartoon, icons…) they call it Charaben (キャラ弁, kyaraben). Was it invented to make the kids eat their lunch box much more easier? I guess so. Actually, some people spend so much time and energy to make those lunch boxes look so appealing that you want to keep them and not eat! Have a look at those examples and try to recognize the different cartoons.
