Conclave Obscurum

Conclave ObscurumPhotographic "fantasmagoria" at its finest. A prelude to a newly-redesigned website offers enough weird eye candy and interactive video vignettes to keep the most discerning surrealist smiling -– albeit in a twitchy, mentally-deranged sort of way. Simply put: these folks offer fine examples of twisted art. We can only hope the Slipknot CDs and prints of René Magritte (yes, there is an alternative to Dali) can keep us tweaking until Conclave Obscurum III comes along.... More

Evan Hecox

Evan HecoxPrimarily an exhibition artist, Evan Hecox has a smallish portfolio, but the pieces that form his online presence are tight. This guy knows what he's doing. The messages are rich and well balanced, although it’s sometimes difficult to know exactly what Mr. Hecox is trying to sell. Frankly, we find this a refreshing and novel situation in the current land of graphic art.... More

Hydrafuse

"Albums and shirts. Websites and rock. That pretty much sums up Hydrafuse." That's what they say, but we think they're underselling themselves. And by "they," we mean Gregg Bernstein, who founded the freelance company in 1999, and since then has found himself creating album covers, website, t-shirts, and other graphic designs for some pretty swell bands. If you listen to Weezer or drink Mountain Dew, you're probably familiar with his work. You just didn't know it till now.... More

Joshua Gorchov

Joshua GorchovDo you ever read magazines and wonder where those interesting illustrations that accompany the articles come from? Well, very talented artists create them, and this particular San Francisco-based illustrator is one of them. The first thing you'll see at Joshua Gorchov's site is Kirsten Dunst. She's rendered in impressionistic acrylic colors. She's an amazing painting, and Joshua Gorchov painted her. Refreshing. Soothing, even. Or maybe we just have a thing for Kirsten Dunst. Either way, his work is lovely.... More

BBQ Box

In a world full of corporate branding and identity, here's an guy walking the walk just for the heck of it. Eric Cheung (aka BBQ Wing) is a graphic designer, and he's created this site because. . . hey, he wanted to. It's an expression of thoughts and ideas, all in some pretty awesome Flash animations. Think "sharing," not "selling." The site is populated with little animated alter egos of the artist to guide you around. We feel good about this.... More

Cisma

CismaCisma bridges the gap between fine art and commerce with a refreshing emphasis on the former. Their concise web site employs an elegant and nearly impenetrable font. And we wish they'd lend us that giant Hammer & Tongs-ish stuffed tooth that adorns their site's illustration gallery -- that thing is freakin' cute.... More

Clint Baker

Clint BakerIllustrations are the focus but this guy is bursting with mega talent. The old-time feel of Baker’s site is inviting, but the quality of his work is astounding. We thread Unfettered Joy into every piece of content we put online - and we just can't help it. You have to see this site to believe it!... More

Dreamline - Unofficial Dave McKean Site

Allow significant surf time as the site provides hundreds of images, representing nearly twenty years of projects, as well as links to news, interviews, and the artist's agent's site with more samples. Wonderful.... More

David Ball

David BallDavid Ball is brilliant with colorful ‘collage illustration’. Bits and pieces are arranged in funkified, intriguing glory – like dreams that you feel all the better for having. Joy of joys, you can buy prints of selected works, and even polish up your political awareness with the links so thoughtfully provided. (No shipping and handling fees on the conscience polishing.) We suspect Terry Gilliam and Salvador Dali had a love child and, lo, his name is David Ball.... More
