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...

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

  19. 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.

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