Tomer Hanuka

Just doing my usual browsing. Ran into this awesome artist. I am familiar with his work via a project I did on the Marquis de Sade. He illustrated the cover art to a Sade book. See below.

Anywho, his name is Tomer Hanuka...and he is an illustrator in NYC and teaches at SVA . I love his work. It is disturbing and interesting--and he seems to do a lot of work inspired by film. I also noticed that he had work in Juxtapoz (love).
He has a twin brother Asaf, who is also an awesome illustrator; the two work together. Check out Asaf's work too.
Tomer also has a blog where he shows his process of storyboarding his illustrations before he proceeds forward with them. It's really awesome to see an artist's process.

I wonder if I can visit SVA and meet him. That would be awesome. The more I think of it, the more I wish I went to SVA. They have an amazing staff of illustrators, designers and thinkers...artists whose blogs and articles I Steven Heller, Louise Fili, Stefan Sagmeister, Ken Carbone, Milton Glaser, Michael Bierut...I should stop.

Tropicana Culprits

I found them
Arnell, "a wholly-owned, stand-alone subsidiary of The Omnicom Group of Companies (NYSE:OMC). Our resources extend the widest array of leading talent at specialist firms inculding BBDO, DDB, TBWA/Chiat Day and the Diversified Agency Services (DAS) Group."

TBWA/Chiat Day does Gatorade (which I kinda like their new look)


new logo:


and then Arnell took Tropicana....
I can't find anything about Arnell....and I can't figure out who specifically, is responsible for the new Pepsi...but I will.

I want this

Maurice Binder

I was browsing again (and working...sortof) and came across the work of Maurice Binder who did title designs for movie sequences. Apparently he was best known for his work on 14 of the James Bond films and for creating the signature gun barrel sequence, and naked lady sequences.
