I’ve been a fan of Mark Weaver’s work for some time now, and did a post about his work a little while back. Since then, Mark has been outputting some beautiful stuff and I thought a second post was in order.
Beautiful palettes, excellent blend of photo, type and design. Love the typefaces used here, I think I spot Futura, Trade Gothic . . . maybe Akzidenz Grotesk?
Check out more of Mark’s portfolio on his Flickr stream, or his official site.
I was having trouble sleeping last night so I decided to pop online for a while to hunt down some visual gems. I happened upon the website of Kristof Saelen entitled VIPs * Very Important Pixels. I’ve seen similar pixel drawings of celebrities and things before, but was struck by the likenesses Kristof can achieve with little squares. Just look at that Kubrick, it’s bang on.
Being a fan of all things 8-bit (or 16-bit), these little guys provided a hilarious moment to my late-night surfing. Kristof is also hosting a contest on his Twitter to win a pixel drawing of yourself. You can BET I’m entering :)
Check out Very Important Pixels for more little guys, as well as Kristof Salen’s website.
