The Most Beautiful Birds Ever Seen

I'm currently swooning over the artwork of Gary Fernandez. He's created illustrations for Nokia, Coca Cola, numerous magazines, and books. His latest work I am enthralled by is an illustration book titled "Introduction to Fantastic Girls, Future Landscapes, and the Most Beautiful Birds Ever Seen." I like the combination of abstract lines he is playing with with more graphic figures and the girls are fantastic...

Pardon me, I need to clean up the puddle of drool on my desk.

Those are so stunning. I don't know that I have words to describe how much I love them.

Great artwork! I'm pretty sure I remember seeing the Nokia illustrations before. I love the contrast between the colours and the b&w.

they seem very surrealist to me... very lovely.

They are all so beautiful! They're kind of an art nouveau/dalĂ­/awesome mix that I just can't resist. Oddly enough, the last one is probably my favorite, since it's the simplest one.

Lady Smaggle said...

Wow that's funny that art is so similar to your style! It's gorgeous.

enc said...

I can see why you like this type of illustration—your own work sometimes reflects similar themes.

It's beautiful.

how beautiful. i like the intricate lines and patterns. i don't think i have the patience for such work. i like big brush strokes in oil in case i mess up i still have options.

ambika said...

Too cool. Funny how art & mass commerce are overlapping in this way--though obviously not entirely new.

I fell in love with his designs when they posted this huge cola ad in front of my school. They really are amazing.
