IN Inspiration

Tags ,

No stone was left unturned as I prepared this next installment in the photo manipulation inspiration series and it paid off. I wanted the best of the best for this showcase and I dare say that’s exactly what I found.

Whether you like the new skool digital media illustrations, the more abstract designer flavoured work or the typical commercial photo manipulation we’ve got you covered today. I’ve searched high and low for new work from established and unknown photoshop artists alike and I must admit, what I found left a smile on my face. Enjoy and be inspired, if you like what you see remember a Tweet or any other type of social support means a lot to us.

Skamworks

I can tell you very little about the man that goes by the name of Skam online other than that he lives in Zagreb, Croatia, that his real name is Max and that his work is extremely inspiring. He rightfully leads the pack in this collection.

Craig Sprecher

Craig Sprecher is another mystery talent, his Behance has a four liner that tells us he’s 21, lives in Portland, Oregon and that he designs… Other than that there’s not much to be found about the man, so we’ll let the images do the talking driving.

Koen de Muynck

There is little information online about Belgian photographer and Photoshop mastermind Koen de Muynck. Perhaps he’s too busy doing excellent commercial work to set up an about me section?

Marco Escobedo

Peru based Marco Escobedo makes it hard for bloggers to write about him, his bio is written in something that seems to be Spanish. I couldn’t care less though since his Micheal Jackson manipulation more than makes up for any lack of info.

Elena Nikiforova

I’m starting to think there’s a conspiracy going on. Creative talents are hiding their personal details so we can’t find them when the truth comes out. Russian based Elena Nikiforova shares nothing about herself on her Behance and one page portfolio site, she leaves us with a collection of gorgeous pics instead.
