Cannaday Chapman for The New Yorker

Check out this cover by Cannaday Chapman for The New Yorker‘s Food & Travel issue.

“For me, one of the finest things about traveling is trying new and exotic foods,” Cannaday says, about the inspiration for his cover.

Chapman recently returned from Argentina, where he ate “a whole lot of steaks and the best pork chops I ever had,” but has never visited China. “Everyone says they have the best street food,” he adds. “My Chinese friend was trying to get me there, describing the seahorses and also scorpions, lots of bugs. I’m told they taste like crab or lobster, which makes sense. Those are just sea bugs.”

Nathan Smith Illustrates the Constellations

Nathan Smith was commissioned by the award-winning Canadian design agency, Target, to produce five illustrations for a new 360-degree Newfoundland and Labrador tourist board website.

The brief required the illustrations to have a soft transparent feel without too much detail. The five images, a Viking ship, the tail of a whale, a compass, a fossil and a hiker were sculpted in Zbrush, deliberately understated and softly rendered in Photoshop.

Visitors to the website are encouraged to select one or more of the five constellations visible in the night sky to begin their journey. As they scroll over a constellation the image becomes clearer, a sound is heard and the link takes them to the subject page.

Artist Spotlight: Peter POP Art

In his 20+ years of working as a professional artist, Peter Pachoumis has always followed one important rule: let your work speak for itself. This rule, along with his great attention to detail and key artistic sensibility, has allowed him to complete work for brands like Disney, Star Wars, McDonald’s, D.C. Comics & more.

Even though he’s mainly known for his pop art & comic work, Pete wears several hats. When he’s not creating artwork for his clients, Pete can be found writing or teaching digital, visual and cultural art. Just recently, he had to opportunity to teach an online course for Pluralsight on how to use Photoshop CC to create powerful comic illustrations.
