Hey guys! Today I’d like to show you my recent artwork for Earth Star. It’s a flyer for their upcoming psychedelic trance party called “Harmonic Waves”. The flyer was made from scratch and I did not use any references or stock images – what I usually do while making art for flyers. This one is 100% vector. My girlfriend told me about a plugin for Adobe Illustrator MirrorMe. It’s very useful for creating patterns, ornaments, fractal-like art and other sorts of trippy designs. I highly recommend it if you are into doing psychedelic art!
Hey guys! Today I’d like to show one of my recent t-shirt designs and several sketches. About a month ago I decided to make a set of designs dedicated to different types of sufferings creatures face in different worlds of Samsara. According to Buddhist and Hindu cosmology there are 3 lower and 3 upper realms: various hells, hungry ghost’s realm, animal’s realm, human world, demigod’s realm and heavens where gods live. The problem with Samsara is that one’s mind experiences suffering even if he’s living in heaven.
So I’ve made several sketches and started doing digital version of the first one – Shalmali bonsai tree. Shalmali forest is one of many locations in hell and it’s famous for the trees that hurt creatures and iron-beaked crows that peck eyes of the ones who are reborn there. My girlfriend said that no one gonna wear the tees with such designs, but I still wanted to make ‘em. Well… after I’ve finished the first one I was convinced my idea was not the best one. Below is the only design I’ve made and several sketches.
Hey people! I have some t-shirt news today. I’ve got few (18 at the moment) women’s Acid Scientist (which is my best-seller so far) t-shirts in stock. Printed with fluorescent paint that glows in black (UV) light. You can buy this tee for only $30 or subscribe to my newsletter and get 20% off.
Hey guys! I hope you are all doing great :) We are still in St. Petersburg, Russia. We are having fun here, travelling around and spending time with family and friends. It’s getting colder here so we are looking forward to move to a warmer place in about 2 months. Today I’d like to share some new art I’ve met on the DeviantArt. Here are several surreal and visionary paintings by Lindsey Carrell. Enjoy!
Hey people! If you are following my blog you know I’ve made some t-shirt designs recently with the pets I will not own. Few days ago I made the photos of chameleon and snakes t-shirts with the real reptiles. It was so cool to meet old and new friends who have helped me with these photo sessions! Thanks guys!
Hey guys! Here comes a new set of t-shirts. It’s called “The pets I will not own”. I really adore these creatures but my nomadic style of life does not allow to keep such kind of pets. The other thing that bothers me even more is that you should feed them with living creatures. Literally. This is more than I can handle… ha-ha :) Anyway, I decided to make some art with ‘em.
Hey people! I don’t consider my art to be very popular but few days ago I’ve stumbled upon one of my picts on ectoplasm.com. Well, it was not my original work but it was modified a bit and used as an album cover for a free release Nibbana. The music is nice so don’t hesitate to download it!
UPD: Ektoplazm admin has credited me. Everyone is happy, no one has any hard feelings :)
Hey everyone! We are back to Moscow and we gonna stay here for about two weeks. Then we are going to St. Petersburg for 3 months. It’s cool to be back to Russia to meet old friends and make new ones :)
Today I went to the print shop that I’ve started to collaborate with recently. We’ve printed one Gandhi tee that turned out to be not as bright as the previous version and Cheshire Cat that looked very much the same as if it was printed with fluorescent paint. Still they are not glowing in UV light.
