Fumio Watanabe

Amazed by the beautiful landscape illustrations of Japanese illustrator, Fumio Watanabe.  Wish we could tell you more about the artist but there was very little information available.  We do know that he graduated from Setsu Mode Seminar in Shinjuku City, Tokyo and is a member of Tokyo Illustrators Society.

More of his work can be viewed on his website, Facebook and TIS (Tokyo Illustrators Society).

Joey Guidone

Joey Guidone is “a fan of simplicity” as evidence in his work shown above.  He currently lives and works at the foot of the Italian Alps.  The natural born artist studied illustration at the Institute Europe di Design of Turin and Mimaster in Milan.  His clients include but are not limited to Vanity Fair Italy, The Boston Globe, Oprah Magazine, and The Wall Street Journal.  On the Adobe blog he says this about his inspiration:  

The first stage of my process is getting inspired. I think there are infinite ways to find inspiration. Sometimes you struggle all day, sometimes it just pops up listening to a random song on the radio. When I find something useful for my project, I do thumb roughs on paper. I have a sketchbook where I collect ideas and that’s another source of inspiration. I also like to see how other artists have dealt with a similar topic.

The artist can be followed on his website, Behance, Facebook and Instagram.

Milton Glaser (1929 – 2020)

Paying homage to a graphic design icon, Milton Glaser.  The artist attended the High School of Music & Art and Cooper Union in New York City.  In 1954 he co-founded Push Pin Studios whose works became the guiding reference in the world of graphic design.  He left Push Pin in 1975 and established his own firm, Milton Glaser, Inc.  No doubt you have seen his iconic designs, “I Love New York” logo, Bob Dylan Poster and the typeface, Glaser Stencil. His work is in the permanent collection of several museums and in 2009 received the National Medal of Arts.   

You can view more of his work here on his website.
