I was fiddling with the idea of how a movie poster from another planet would look like, and i guess by merging bits from different cultures and and invented scriptform i ended up making this poster, which im thinking on making a series and i will have a good bunch of them printed very soon.
I was commissioned by an agency to work on this Digital matte painting for TCM, the retro movie channel from the Turner network.
The client wanted 3 of the most seen landscapes on TCM movies merging, as in Western, Mysterious Island/Jungle, and Volcano forest. They were very flexible around how i should show this scene, so i decided on making a panoramic view of the scene working it out with both photography and 3d, merged with matte and manipulation work.
My name is Gustavo Brigante and as my Bio says, im a self-taught graphic designer and illustrator from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
From now on im gonna be publishing my favourites bits of work, explorations and processes in this space.
The KDU looks like an amazing project and i see a lot of great work so its a pleasure to share mine here,
i hope this will lead to new and exciting ways to keep exploring and learning further in my work, and also to meet new friends.
TV Party! – Camila Huerta by Gustavo Brigante
This work was a collaboration with chilean model Camila Huerta for her portfolio. Worked out this piece with total freedom of subject as long as the piece was centered on the main portrait so i had lots of fun working on this. At the time of making this i was also learning Cinema 4d (still am) so i experimented a little with it for this composition and all the rest was worked around with Photoshop.
It’s been a while since I updated my page. Probably cause I didn’t have much to share. I finished this illustration for Designers Against Child Slavery – An art collective dedicated to raising awareness about sex trafficking. Exhibit is on Saturday, October 1st, 2011 at 7:00 PM – check out more about the exhibit and organization here : www.dacsunited.com
Recently the pool, or bowl, at the skatepark in Saratoga Springs, NY was filled with dirt and rendered un-skateable. The city claimed they were forced to cut park employees and the pool was deemed too hazardous to be part of the new “skate at your own risk” policy. Since then, local skaters and the people of the town have been trying to get the city to remove the dirt from the pool, even offering to dig it out themselves. It’s one of the oldest pools on the East Coast, and as a skater from New York I know how rare and special it is to have access to one (there are only a handful more in the Northeast even now). With the exponential increase of popularity and interest in skateboarding over the past few years, removing the bowl is like removing a soccer or baseball field from a public park. Please visit Save the Skatepark for more information, or better yet, sign the petition to have the dirt removed. Here are some photos I took of the bowl at the park while at school in Saratoga:
Piece was created for DACS United.

Last Friday we celebrated the launch of our 2nd House Guest Artist in the Denham Store in Amsterdam.
After having a local hero, Alljan Moehamad, for the first project, the 2nd in our series of guest artists welcomes STB Tees into the Denham House: a stand alone project by jakenoakes, who traditionally specialises in printed media (mainly books and magazines) often creating limited edition, bespoke publications.
Most recently jakenoakes designed Bill Gold: PosterWorks, the first limited-edition publication for luxury publishing house Reel Art Press (available through reelartpress.com) and co-created a live interactive stage show for Groove Armada.
The DENHAM geometric scissor design has a timeless yet contemporary appeal and was inspired by the works of Sol LeWitt.

I recently joined young creative agency 2xanadu and we’ve just launched our brand new website, filled with a tonne of unseen work and new work, take a look!
Pixel and texture are the main aspects of the image. Rather than use purely digital artwork, I have been quietly trying new methods of creating texture. My focus is on the decay of beauty, as in, the fall of the ego as we are stretched apart in all directions by our ever increasing surroundings of illusion. Seeing things for what they really are by means of moving out of focus with these surroundings and to seek internally, let that guiding light shine forth.
I am seeking to make a transition in art. Forming a breakdown of parts and leaving blank space or thought in its place intrigues me. The balance for me would be to show growth / decay within the ‘inbetween’ phase of an image where they would both merge before the finished article becomes neither one or the other. Question also what you are looking at and by what medium or media? Question everything.
By following other artists it gets easier in time to interpret messages that they put forth. This in turn holds a certain resonance, something that on some level one can relate to.
We continue to learn at the drawing of each breath. I remain thankful to my peers. KDU for Life!
SVSV continues to use art as a vehicle to expand and communicate its anti-mass agenda. This week, we debut three artistic collaborations designed to amplify the core craft philosophy that defines our brand. Our brand believes that the ideas we generate share equal weight with the objects we create. Art is the bridge that connects these two realities.

Transition / Exploration of large bird species.
Well, this was going to be a type exploration when it started. Possibly a quote or a phrase that would echo the image. I really like the idea of taking portions away from an image and leaving this emptiness as blank space, offering thought in its place. With this in mind, it is an image reflective of a piecing together and of growth and full flight, also a double edge meaning of the dismantling and the disintegration and letting go of parts that may hold the bird back from it’s flight.
Photographic image + The background is a plain coloured rice. Using very few colours is something that is enjoyable to push into art, it keeps the exploration contained to a degree, yet opens the image up to a larger interpretation.
The smaller image within is just that. Contained within the eye of the Eagle, as we truly are.
