French animator and anime artist Thomas Romain has recently started collaborating with two unlikely artists: his young sons. Much like their father, the boys love to draw and design characters. To show them the capability of their creativity, Romain often turns their doodles into professional-level concept art. Romain began his unique anime drawings series last month, when he and one of his sons designed and rendered a star-studded alien.
There is no doubting the skill of designer Toby Ng. His designs have won him numerous accolades including the Red Dots Awards, International Design Awards, and the Hong Kong International Poster Triennial Awards among others. One of his projects, called World of 100 answers the question: If the world were a village of 100 people, what would its composition be? The answer consists of twenty brilliantly designed posters based on statistics about the population around the world under different classifications. The stats are more powerful because of Ng’s illustrations. He uses vibrant, bold colors combined with crisp, clean lines.”Look,” says Ng, “this is the world we are living in.”
