Check These Out: Adam Sidwell's '52 Bad Dudes' Illustrations
Holy crap these are freakin' awesome! The other day, via Uncrate, I came across illustrator Adam Sidwell's series of gorgeous illustrations as part of his 52 Bad Dudes series. As he explains on his Tumblr: "My name is Adam Sidwell and this is a blog I created to keep me illustrating regularly. By each Friday in 2010 I will be uploading a new illustration I created just for this project. The theme is 'Bad Dudes' which can be many things bad and dude or dudette like." There are some beautiful pieces that he's done that are all available as 13"x19" art prints on his website. But they're limited editions and will sell out, so hop to it if you want one!
Click on any of the prints below and you'll be taken to the page to purchase (as long as it's still available):
He's not up to 52 of these yet, but he will by the end of the year. You can find the earlier ones in his archives.
I love that Sidwell has already designed one of these prints for Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the "Point Man" Arthur in Inception (with paradoxes and all) except that he's not really a bad dude, more like a badass dude. He's also made some great illustrations for video games like Mass Effect, BioShock, Shadow of the Colossus, Splinter Cell and a nostalgic Mega Man bosses series (brilliant). The prints are pretty inexpensive ($17.50) and will probably turn out beautiful; I'm even buying a couple myself. If you dig Sidwell's stuff, make sure to follow his Tumblr for more. Hope you guys liked seeing this, I thought it was cool enough to feature today.
