Simon Brader – Inner Thought

Simon Brader Illustration

Inner Thought is an online collection of animated gifs by Simon Brader. Short animations are tiled to create a constantly looping wallpaper that the user can manipulate and explore whilst finding new patterns. A new tile will be added every week and so adding to the multitude of patterns available. Animations of the tiny insignificant thoughts that pass through our heads every second but get lost in the masses. But together they create exciting patchworks.

Sleepless Comics is a regular dose of comics from around the world.

We commit to staying sleepless, making art, from nearly every part of the world, once a week. You might find us promoting the latest favourite brushpen, or telling you the tale of the lovestruck rocket (Coming Soon). Anything is possible.

The new Issue of the Award-Winning Scrawl Digital Magazine Explores the Humorous and Touching Aspects of Our Searches for Love.

A group of popular illustrators from around the globe have come together in the name of love… that is, their love for illustration and the art of modern storytelling. Together, these talented artists have created How to Woo, a special digital handbook featuring the “dos and don’ts of the art of courtship.” Based on creative interpretations of various romantic (and humorous) gestures such as writing a love letter, getting over a broken heart and how to cry, How to Woo is debuting in the App Store just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Cover image for Corel Painter Essentials 5

My name’s Lawrence. I’m a freelance Illustrator based in the UK. I was recently asked to both beta-test and create the cover image for Corel’s new awesome painting package Painter Essentials 5. It’s the small brother to their greatly powerful Painter 2015 which I also beta-tested. Both of these are great and this year is the first time I had used either. I have to say that they will certainly change the way I paint! I know this is sounding a bit like an ad’ for Corel but I can’t praise these guys highly enough for their hard work.
