21 awesome illustration insights for Spring & Play from the Richard Solomon Agency

There is a big difference between good illustration and great illustration. For an illustration to achieve the highest level of communication it must first evoke a mood, then tell a story, and finally leave a lasting message. All of these illustrations achieve that goal. We're truly inspired that Richard Solomon has given us permission to spotlight these illustrators in the Design Center Gallery. The Richard Solomon Artists Representative firm has been around for more than 20 years, and has gathered the best visual talent in the world! So, sit back and enjoy the slide show of spectacular illustrations for spring! April 16, 2014

Frozen nature painting amazing abstract designs into the ice floating on Lake Michigan

The water froze the instant the wave broke through the ice. That's what it is like in Lake Michigan where it is the coldest weather in decades. Water freezes the instant it comes in contact with the air. The temperature of the water is already some degrees below freezing. March 28, 2014

Qwasian : The Hardest working man Photoshop, THREE

Continuing from the previous gallery of art by Qwasian Phillips, and Team Brinkz here are 30 more pieces from that will complete this update to Quasian's work. Through all this experience, note that producing cover after cover, all the type is still readable and telegraphic. Some of the custom lettering is a bit more difficult, but hey -- it's really tough to put out this much work, while keeping it all fairly different and fresh. Hats off to Qwasian, and keep up the great work! March 22, 2014
