Venus and Tentacles: Sci-Fi Digital Illustration

Venus and Tentacles
A Vintage Science Fiction poster design from the deep blue sea.

This is a digital illustration I made last year after my last conversation with Cthulu. It’s also inspired by old sci-fi movies, spy stories and Sandro Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. To recreate the vintage feeling of all the graphic elements, captain Sir Joe W. suggested a low budget set of tools. None of all those fancy Wacom tablets, just a half-broken laptop touchpad. We are followers of the “Less is More” philosophy.
This concept illustration is part of our Unfinished Art Gallery. I will post the final poster design soon (or later).

Be sure to contact us if you want any of these things:

  • a custom old-style sci-fi illustration
  • pink tentacles (involved in our web strategies)
  • avoid Kraken attacks while sailing in Tuscany
  • meet Chtulu in person (a month ahead reservation is required)
  • a catchy grog, rhum, wine or whiskey label design

El Chapo Guzmán Escapes Again!

El Chapo Low Poly - Illustration
Polygonal art of El Chapo in Puente Grande.

He did it again. Drug Lord Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, known as “El Chapo” (The Shorty) escaped from the maximum security federal prison Centro Federal de Readaptación Social Número 1 “El Altiplano”, also called “Almoloya”, located in the Santa Juana neighborhood of Almoloya de Juárez (State of Mexico), not far from Toluca.
He was arrested for the first time in Guatemala on 9 June 1993 and then transferred to the maximum security prison “Puente Grande” in Guadalajara, Jalisco, in 1995. On 19 January 2001 El Chapo managed to escape, with a plan that involved almost 80 people.
Now, after his capture on February 22, 2014, he escaped again, this time through a 1-mile tunnel going from the shower area inside his cell to a home construction site in a Santa Juanita neighborhood.

This polygonal illustration was made last year after his arrest.

Greece VS Euro: Sparta screams Οχι in Referendum!

Spartan Warrior's Answer To Austerity Policies
A digital sketch about the Greek answer to Europe!

Here is a concept sketch about the referendum of last Sunday in Greece. The Greeks expressed their choice on Europe’s Troika, screaming their answer like Spartans: Οχι (“no” in Greek)! “Inexplicably”, the finance minister Yanis Varoufakis has resigned, although he had earlier stated that his resignation would come only in case of victory of the YES in the referendum.

The vintage engraving patterns and textures are enough to add a bit of spice to this simple digital illustration!

«Madness… This is Sparta!»
