Leighton’s Facebook page is adorned with his beautiful logos and designs and includes a peak at some of the books his work has appeared in. Like Jeff Fisher has done on his Facebook page, Leighton’s page has a feed from his blog. Leighton also keeps the fans of his Facebook page up-to-date on sales from his Zazzle shop. A nice idea for Leighton would be to take the images of those great tees he sells online and place them in the Photo tab of his Facebook page. That would enable his fans to have a quick preview of his products without having to leave his page. Then from there they can click over to his store.
website, Michelangelo employed this technique on his masterpiece, David. The statue was originally intended to be placed on a church facade or high pedestal so David's torso, hands, shoulders, and head were enlarged to create the illusion of correct perspective when viewers looked up at it from below.

A fun, animated short from film student, Jasper Kort. This short won Jasper a Best of the Rest award at the MidWest 3 Minute Festival last year. That was the launch year for the festival which was held at the Civic Theatre in Farmington, Michigan. It’s a small festival created to serve as a platform for filmmakers of all levels to boast their work. The organizers are looking forward to many more years, expanding each year to include more filmmakers, a bigger audience and filmmaking workshops.

Mitch O'Connell has his hands in just about everything and he seems to have no problem mastering it all. Tattoo designs, logos, comics, caricatures, cartoons, cute, realism and pin-ups, he executes his illustrations and designs in any one of these styles like he had multiple personalities. We might have to perform an exorcism on him to expel all these demons from his body.
How would you like to have a Mitch O'Connell original tat adorn your body? Betcha wouldn't mind at all.
Elliot is a graphic design studio based out of Canada – Montreal to be exact. Here’s a clever video from the studio meant to feature numerous reasons to love the city of Montreal. It seems like a relatively simple idea but it’s a whole lot of fun and well put together, and after you see the video you say to yourself – “Damn! Wish I thought of that!” The video is also proof that you don’t need a huge budget, just a great idea to produce excellent work. The follow up images are some examples of the studio’s really nice design work.
Funny thing is the video is a take on the “like” feature on Facebook. But do you think the studio’s Facebook page could be found anywhere?
Quick Update: Okay, everyone - just heard back from Elliot. They do have a page - lol. Well, that's why Illustration Pages is here - now you can find Elliot easier on Facebook.

We asked Matt how he constructs his composite illustrations and found out that they're not done in Photoshop. They're traditional mixed media pieces that incorporate everything from acrylic, pen and ink, collage to transfers. Scrap paper, boards and book covers lay the foundation for his illustrations on to which he will then begin to craft his work. Matt feels that there is something about a solid white piece of paper that's intimidating, whereas a distressed board that's been damaged already allows him to work freely without the fear of ruining the piece. Seeing how talented Matt is though - it's hard to imagine him feeling intimidated before beginning his illustrations.
Matt's influences are Mort Drucker, Neo Rauch, Barron Storey, Charley Harper and Thrust Holmes. He recently had a show at the Phone Booth Gallery with fellow artist and friend Joel Zuercher.
