Featured Artist: Danny Allison

I discovered the talented UK-based illustrator Danny Allison while reading the latest issue of Computer Arts Projects magazine. I did a quick search in my feed reader and to my surprise none of the blogs I subscribe to have showcased his work. So for me and my blogging knowledge this is a premiere. This makes Danny perfect to be the first featured artist here on fudgegraphics in 2009.
Other than that Danny has a background in photography I did not find an more information about him unfortunately. The most important thing is his illustrations anyway and so I won’t bother you anymore. Here’s a small collection of his designs to get you inspired. More can be found at

Featured: Colorcubic Studio

Colorcubic is the vision of founding partners Christy Lai and Michael John. The design studio is based in Portland, OR, United States. I did not find any more information on them. Ah well, just look at their beautiful design and get inspired. What I like most about the art is that each piece is different and yet they manage to keep a consistent syle (if that makes any sense). For even more inspiration visit Colorcubic on Behance and Flickr.

Featured Artist: Erik Jonsson

Erik Jonsson is a 26-year old graphic designer and art director from Sweden. Parallel to running his own agency Elapse he works freelance and studies Digital Media. So yes, he is a busy boy, and a talented one at that. I can’t say that I like every of his designs though. Some are to “corporate” for my taste. His more experimental art however is just my cup of tea. I like the retro and grunge feel. Get a taste for Erik’s art here and then head over to his portfolio.

Featured Artist: Stina Persson

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of watercolour art. I discovered the art of Stina Persson, an illustrator from Sweden who works almost exclusively with watercolours. Her work is really inspiring and very refreshing in the digital design world we’re living in. This should give you some new ideas as to how you can use my brush sets.

Inspiration: Luxembourg’s finest graphic artists

Coming from a country with less than 500k people living in it’s not hard to imagine that there are only a few great graphic designers around. Doing a location based search on Behance I found exactly 3 very talented and inspiring artists. Either there aren’t any more around or they just haven’t found the way onto the platform. Either way, I’m delighted to present to you Luxembourg’s finest.

Peter Becker:

Peter Becker is from Germany, but he works in a small agency in Luxembourg as an Art Director. That is good enough for me to make it into the list. After all his designs are gorgeous.

Featured Artist: Fabien Barral

Fabian Barral is a French graphic designer and photographer. He spends 10 hours a day in front of the computer while drinking an average of 5 cups of coffee (or so he claims). I can relate to that. I discovered Fabien Barral’s art through Graphic-Exchange, a site where he showcases his personal art as well as designs by his favourite designers. I spent quite a long time on this site discovering one masterpiece after another. If there was only one inspirational website in the world this would be it. Another great aspect of Graphic-Exchange is that Fabien invites you to trade art with him: some of your prints for some of his. I also admire the fact that Fabien doesn’t have RSS. He forces you to visit the site in order get the latest updates. This way the beautiful web design won’t go to waste. For more of his work visit his personal portfolio at Imaginary Moments. Here are some samples to get you started.

Featured Artist: Julian James

Julian James works under the alias of Whyisbox and recently updated his site. He was kind enough to inform me about it. Unfortunately he doesn’t provide a lot, or none, info about himself. His designs speak from themselves. I love his character designs and simplistic approach. He’s still busy uploading new stuff to his portfolio. I can’t wait to see his other designs.
