As an eternal procrastinator myself, I’m interested in personal projects which inspire and manage creativity. I’ve found that setting yourself small, achievable goals each day is a great way to get the ball rolling, so was happy to find that such a project has helped Marius Roosendaal create some wonderful imagery.

Here are some stunning photos taken by recent University of Brighton graduate, Davy Evans. It’s fun to try and work out what is going on before you know exactly how the iridescent swirls and metallic ripples were captured. For me, there’s something quite alien and magical about them. Here, Davy tells us more about the project and how these floating worlds were found in places quite ordinary and seen every day.
We previously mentioned Denis Carrier as part of the Spindle exhibition. Here’s some more of his work, all of which shows how well he puts together his concise, thought-out ideas in his perfectly places forms and clean lines. He also took some time to tell us a little more about his collaborative projects and his own work.
We featured some of Jess Wilson‘s work recently when we looked at the Spindle magazine exhibition. I love her detail-filled work, usually bustling with hand-drawn type and tiny, humorous elements, so thought it’d be nice to take a closer look. Here, she tells us a little more about her inky, rich illustrations.
For a student film, this short animation by French animator Clément Gendron is nothing short of spectacular. The traditional style is beautiful, but his timing is what stands out for me.
Here are some examples of work from Joseph Gough, a recent University of Brighton graduate. I love the mixture of different marks he uses in his brush and ink work. We have a look at some illustrations from his project on ‘Lord of the Flies’ while he talks in depth about self-analysis, understanding his own style, and life after graduation.
The amazing Sam Wolfe Connelly, whose work I find simple transfixing, was kind enough to have a chat with us. He tells us about how he creates the magical, emotive atmosphere in his work and how he has been able to develop this beautiful style.
