Today’s Inspiration is the work of Illustrator/Animator/Designer Alberto Cerriteño. His illustrations are creative, detailed, and often use a lot of subtle textures and patterns. His work’s also got a really nice, authentic vintage feel to it. I’m posting a good amount of his work, but be sure to check out his site for a lot more. Here is a bit about Alberto:
Alberto Cerriteño is a Mexican illustrator & designer who has lived in America; Portland for nearly four years now. Strongly inspired by urban vinyl toys, alternative cartoons, and the pop surrealism movement, Alberto Cerriteño has developed his own very personal technique and style, having always present a delicate hints of traditional Mexican artistic influences in his management of rich textures and decorative patterns. These contrast strikingly with the blending of desaturated colors and ink, sometimes featuring a vintage coffee finish. Alberto Cerriteño illustrations have been recognized by progressive art institutions such as Juxtapoz, Create, Drawn!, The Little Chimp Society, Computer Arts, Communication Arts and IDN among others.
