To demonstrate their Artist Pens, Faber Castell had Singapore-based art director and designer Chan Hwee Chong create meticulous spiral drawings of three masterpieces using their pens. In case the drawings themselves aren’t proof enough of Chong’s skill, a video was shot by Eric Yeo as he draws Girl With A Pearl Earring. This is advertising at its best. See more on Behance.

UK-based graphic designer and illustrator Jing Zhang is currently working on a beautiful series of isometric letters, rendering typographical forms as small industrial buildings, machines, factories, and landscapes. Via Behance she says the hardest part isn’t creating them, but finishing them, and that she’s running out of patience. Maybe we should encourage her a bit? I can’t wait to see the rest of these. See more of the series here.

Journey to the Center of the Earth

Journey to the Center of the Earth literature illustration books

Here’s an incredible image for your day. I don’t know its origins, so if anyone cares to enlighten me I’d love details. It almost looks like artwork for a poster from a 1960s-70s book or film? (via designspiration and phonometrician)

Update: My guess was not far off. This is actually a still from a 1980s movie called Emerald Forest. (thnx, drew!)

Vasco Mourao is an architect and illustrator originally from Portugal who now lives and works in Barcelona. His densely illustrated cities and structures are drawn entirely by hand and while all are of course fictional places, they often incorporate real buildings. For instance, in the most dense piece above entitled New Yorker one can find the Chrysler building, the Met, the Whitney, and the Guggenheim among others—it’s like architectural Where’s Waldo! Another piece, Is it me or is Barcelona falling apart?, includes a wide variety of less iconic structures Mourao found around the city, and the last two illustrations are available as limited edition prints from his shop. Thanks for sharing your work with Colossal, Vasco!

Thomas Pavitte who previously made the world’s most complex dot-to-dot drawing featuring Mona Lisa is further exploring the potential of the dot-connecting medium with series of puzzles entitled the Transformation Series. In his first release a two-phase drawing gradually reveals overlaid portraits of Michael Jackson’s changing face, from childhood to adulthood. He’s also designed a typographic/portrait treatment of President Obama. Pavitte now has an online store where you can buy limited edition prints of these transformation puzzles, as well as a high-resolution scan of the completed Mona Lisa puzzle.
