Wooden is a series by Germany-based graphic designer Antoni Tudisco. Just 21 years old, Tudisco is a talented young artist who says, “I [have been] a fan of extraordinary things ever since I was a child.” Since receiving his diploma at age 18, Tudisco has been sought after by brand name companies including Reebok Woman, Coca-Cola, and MTV Philippines.
In this digital art project, Tudisco transforms all kinds of things, from cheeseburgers to sneakers, into wooden illustrations. The shapes and textures are so incredibly realistic, it's hard to believe that these objects aren't actually carved out of wood. The artist doesn't like to reveal his process but he does disclose that one 3D piece can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two weeks to complete. He says, “Some clients and people believe graphic design is just ‘slapping text and images together' in order to make any print material or online graphics, like a flyer, banner, or even a website. As a designer I can say that [graphic design] is not just sitting in front of a screen, but it's a blend of research, hard work, and creativity, with lots of time spent.”
