Loving the minimalist and geometric approach of these animal illustrations by Josh Brill.  The artist and designer graduated from Maine College of Art with a degree in New Media Design.  He currently is based in Portland, Maine. In an article on Grain Edit he says this about his influences:  

“My early influences, as a kid, are the ones that got me interested in art. They were comics, animation, skateboard graphics and in some subliminal way Nintendo. This led me into studying cartooning and animation in my first year of collage.”

“Later when I transferred to a fine arts school, Constructivism, Alfred Hitchcock, Saul Bass, Reid Miles, George LaRou, Matt Owens, Chris Ware, Dave Mckean and Mike Mignola were influential in my development as an artist and a designer.”

“After school when I became more confident as an artist, I found myself less influenced by artists and more by subjects like nature, culture and science.”

Javier de Riba

Javier de Riba spray paints bright, geometric patterns on cement floors of public spaces.  The Barcelona-based designer and artist works with paints, stencils, roller brushes and volunteers from his workshop to create these beautiful tiled patterns. He says this about his work on Impakter:

“My interest for patterns comes from historical traditions. At the end of the 19th century, hydraulic mosaic factories began to appear in the Catalan countries. Many homes here, in Catalunya, feature this type of tile, and I have lived with them all my life. I wanted to revive this tradition, put it into light and on the street, with a modern touch.”
