Sam Hundley is one of the most inventive artists on the globe. He recently had a gallery show in Norfolk of his “junk” artwork. I’m proud to say that we were colleagues for many years at The Virginian-Pilot where I learned a ton about creativity and design from the Slammer. See more of his work.
Nicely done visualization of first movement from Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. Needs a color key for instruments that rests at top, bottom or along sides.
Hand-drawn visual retelling of Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea. I recommend reading the novel, I re-read it every year or so. It’s a great example of semantic compression. There’s not a wasted word in the book, and you can read it in one setting. -BP
Detail image from my Little Big-Horn Nature Guide illustration. I made 200 pencil drawings for the initial layout, then 200 pen and ink drawings for the final. The inks were scanned in as 300 dpi bitmaps and all the color was done as vector art in Illustrator. The inks are overprinting the vectors and each individual drawing is grouped to the vector color in order to facilitate movement and edits on the final art. The thunderstorm in the background pays homage to one of my favorite artists, the great landscape painter Eric Sloane. -BP
