Insperation: Julien Berthier

RĂ©sidence secondaire
If you aren't already familiar with Julien Berthier's work, please make the time to view all of his projects, videos and sketches. Apart from the excellent execution of his various concepts, I love that he adds a good dose of humor in a lot of his work. I've included some of my favorite pieces below.

Inspiration: Luis Dourado

I love Luis Dourado's work! He went to design school in Portugal, continued on to the Master program in Public Space/Communication at ELISAVA School. He currently lives in Berlin where he collaborates and works in several projects in the areas of Illustration and Visual Arts.

Free Music

I just came across these collection of remixes . Tracks from Slow Down include Tupac, Kurupt, Lupe Fiasco, Wiz Khalifa, Kanye West, Nas and more. Big Z has combined their vocals with his melodious instrumentals and it’s a nice mix. It’s free good music. Throw it into your mix. I love the tracks with Felt (#2 and 10). Get it HERE!

Station Magazine

This was a two page illustration I did for Station Magazine's Chic Issue' (out this month in the UK).To me, the word chic is universal. Anywhere you go on the globe the word holds the same meaning. 
Nothing says chic like diamond encrusted flowers, cheetah print and young ladies so I threw in a taste of all three in my illustration 'Like Totally Chic...Duh'.
God bless the magazines that still love/include illustration in their publications!

Hey! Hello!

Welcome to my blog! 

My name is Nicole Guice, I've lived in LA all my life and I'm very passionate about illustration. Although I have many passions, dreams and obsessions, I can't image doing anything else.  I have a few blogs, but this one is specifically for my my design/music/art inspiration and where I'll be sharing my illustration updates.

I went to Otis College of Art and Design where I recieved my BFA in Fashion Design. I'm greatly influenced by the fashion world and just as equally influenced by fine art, black and white cinema (of the late 30s-40s) and music from all parts of the globe.If I was gifted another lifetime I'd love to be a National Geographic corespondent and study botany. 

I love all forms of beauty. Natures imperfections are my most treasured possessions.
