Josh Brill

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.”

Oupas

We so love this idea of a paper flower shop perfect for those who are allergic to flowers or those with a limited cut-flower budget.  This is exactly what this Portuguese studio, Oupas, has done.  The studio consists of Cidália, Joana and Sofia who studied graphic design together.  After finishing college they decided that they shouldn’t stop and wait for a good job, they should get into the front battle and start their own studio.  The designers are paper and cardboard makers who started creating mainly for big events but as their skills improved focused on smaller detailed works.

You can follow the studio at their website, Facebook, Behance and Instagram.  Their floral bouquets can be purchased here at their shop.
