Australian artist Alex Gabbot (previously here and here) is back with a new cross-section illustration. This time, he takes on the ‘Owl Ship’ from the epic graphic novel (and not so epic film), Watchmen. This piece was exclusively done for the ‘MINTcondition – Issue No.2’ comic book show in Seattle, held in conjunction with Emerald City Comic Con.
8” x 10” limited edition Giclee prints of the artwork are available on sale at the Ltd. Art Gallery. You can watch a time-lapse of the painting process, and also checkout a high-res version of the illustration at his site.
20 year old graphic designer, René Mambembé pays homage to his “hero,” the Helvetica font, with his series of illustrations of alphabets that are minimalist representations of comic book and movie characters.
René, who is based in Nantes, France, says that he has been passionate about typography and illustration from a long time. He is also looking out for an internship, so if you are interested in hiring him you can contact him here.
Check out some larger images of his illustrations after the jump.
