1. Tom Hovey

Illustrator Tom Hovey uses his hands and looks like he keeps them off of the mouse most of the time while generating his watercolor illustrations. The work benefits greatly from the approach as it keeps a raw and emotional tone.

2. Forentijn Hofman - Fat Monkey Made Of Flip Flops

3. Caroline Morin

Although not entirely surreal, there is still something strange about Caroline Morin’s artistic portraits. This is probably due to the cigarette-gobbling and faceless girls she sketches.
With an almost mixed-media look, Caroline Morin captures the bare essence of her subjects. Finely drawn, her portraits are eccentrically eye-catching. Check out the gallery above and I’m sure you’ll agree.

4. Matthew Porter

Strung together, Matthew Porter's photographs present a subjective cluster of both absurd fantasy and muted desire. Their fantastic spectacle is sometimes spoiled by their equally negative iconography. Light splashes over the top of the Nazi sponsored Hindenburg as it soars over the American West. A large image of a dying nebulae in space, or that of an emasculated fort in Maine, serve as establishing shots for a non-existing narrative.

Matthew Porter was born in Pennsylvania in 1975 and attended Bard and Bard/ ICP for a BA and MFA, respectively, in Advanced Photographic Studies. He has contributed work to New York Magazine, Modern Painters, VMan, Exit and others. Porter teaches at the University of Maine and the International Center of Photography and lives and works in Brooklyn. Porter is the recipient of Photo District News' 30 New and Emerging Photographers in 2004 and the John Bard Award for Excellence in Photography from bard College in 1998.

6. Pierre Dal Corso

Pierre Dal Corso is a fashion photographer with a certain talent for making colors live in his photographies, working out of Paris, France. Not only are his photographs technicolor creations, but they also capture the innate sex appeal of the female body. There’s something extremely sexual about his work, and it isnt just the fact that the girls are nude.

7. Roya Hamburger

Something about me


1989 Willem de Kooning Academy of arts, Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Advertising and design.

1990 - present
Freelance Illustrator/artist and designer.
Activities include the production of illustration and graphic designs for advertising agencies, publishers and art institutions.
Since 2002 I have internationalized my client base and cater clients from the United States, Australia, England and Germany among others.

Working in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. My works are mainly digital productions.

Represented byUnit CMA, Amsterdam


Alex Steinweiss, Andy Warhol, Rinzen, Takashi Murakami. Sarah Kay (Holy Hobby), Charles M. Schulz (Snoopy), Andy Warhol. Japanese design and art, Indian and Persian miniatures and design from the sixty and seventies (especially interior design from those eras). Native art from around the world, in which you recognize original shapes and patterns.


As a child my favourite activity was drawing. Drawing was something in which I excelled. I wanted nothing more then turn this talent into my profession.
At the age of seventeen I was admitted to art school and skipped the first year due to the level of my work. At the same time I held a day-job working part time at a graphic design company. Soon the company clients asked for my illustrations for their publications.

This kicked-off my career as an artist and a freelancer. At the age of eighteen I made illustrations for the FNV magazine and the Flair, a major Belgian ladies magazine. Because I noticed strong demand for my work, I decided to postpone my education to develop my skills as a working professional.

Soon my work got noticed and I catered to the artistic needs of clients such as Cosmopolitan magazine, Elle, M, Avant Garde, ABN-AMRO, Bruna, British Airways, Man Power, Dutch Railways, Postbank, Deloitte and Touche, Peter Stuyvesant and Martini. Since 2002 I have more international clientele and my work appears in various international publications.

When working for publishers and advertising agencies objectives always revolves around communicating a message. This is exactly where my passion and skills overlap. When it comes to commissioned work, the main point is “telling another’s story” After sixteen years being a professional in commissioned work, its time for me to tell my own story as well with chosen subjects and communicating in my own way. I have this long-time dream to create work that “broadens consciousness”, with an idealistic flavour, using graphic design, illustration and animation as vehicles.

In my work I am always looking for the best possible balance between composition, shape and atmosphere to carry out a certain message. I seek to integrate different images into one by using both graphics and realistic images. So my work gets more depth by merging 2D and 3D. I therefore feel more like a designer then an illustrator per-se.

8. Noah Sheldon - United Bamboo Cat Calendar 2011

It's holiday season, and December is the month to give and receive.... For the next few weeks, I will occasionally post gift items selected for being unique, lovely and designed to benefit a "good cause."

To promote their cult brand United Bamboo, fashion design duo Miho Aoki and Thuy Pham had the genius idea to recreate their fall and resort collections in miniature for feline models. A casting call with over 100 cats, from which a dozen of the "best looking" were selected to be photographed by Noah Sheldon. Among the winners were a Persian, a Russian Blue and a Maine Coon. This is United Bamboo's second annual charity calendar, which raises money for Animal Haven and Kitty Kind. The twelve images will also be on view at Creatures of Comfort New york starting November 17.
