Here is some stuff that's a bit different than the video game work I posted last time. First off is an ad I did for Adidas Originals, called the Oregon:
This is an apparel design for my site:
This next one was done for an article by PingMag, a Japanese web magazine:
And these last two are part of a collaboration with a French photographer called Stéphane Tartelin, who took these shots here in Tokyo with a pinhole camera:

About that Adidas ad. Did you do that for 180Amsterdam?
Very very cool stuff, btw.

The third one (the PingMag piece) is terrific! The colors and motion, just beautiful.
not sure how I feel about the colabs at the bottom. They look nice, but leave me wishing the backgrounds were drawings too

just saw these from the interview you did - great work.
June 7th, 2006, 12:05 PM
nice stuff again man, the PingMag piece is fucking excellent
June 7th, 2006, 12:09 PM
The PingMag piece inspires!

Nothing but love man. Really cool!

You are a seriously great artist.
June 7th, 2006, 12:44 PM
wow Gez, I've been a fan for a while but these last ones really stand out. While the japanese-web illustration is a bit james jean-ish, I love it and I think it takes your skill in draftsmanship to pull something like that off. But the photo collabs are what really stand out to me. They're really evoking something in me that I can't quite put my finger on. They're both really delicate and fascinating to look at, and I think your choices of what to draw over the photos is awesome. Way to go with your instincts (if in fact that's what you did :P).
I love it, that's all I gotta say. What I wouldn't give for a print of either of the last two.

I am in love with this one http://www.gezfry.com/pics/gez_ukiyo-e.jpg
Did you just scan your own paper texture for the background?

I saw these from the interview too. Very interesting stuff. The comercial is very cool and I like the idea to add drawn figures in to photographs. The Logo is excellent done and I like the japanese style picture very much.
And I'm interested too, about what Joshua asked. Your art is king:)
June 7th, 2006, 01:47 PM
man, i usually hate the combination of photo and graphic! -these two pictures changed my mind! great work!
June 7th, 2006, 01:53 PM
Very innovative stuff here, bravo. :)

The ukyo-e one is bloody beautiful. Got anything more planned in that vein?
June 7th, 2006, 03:12 PM
Gezfry, gotta be one of the best website designs I have seen. Compliments the high quality and style of your artwork, wicked stuff man.
June 7th, 2006, 03:25 PM
great works bro, love the designs , my fave is the third one for the japanese magazine
June 7th, 2006, 10:04 PM
wow i really really love those last three...so nice
June 7th, 2006, 10:16 PM
amazing, this is I think is beyond concept art and, this is something fresh and fucking awesome...I've never seen this before. I'm going to dream about this so much now.
June 7th, 2006, 11:56 PM
The last 3 are particularly great, but the PingMag/ukiyo-e piece is just so frikkin sweeeet!
June 8th, 2006, 12:06 AM
Wow. Always appreciate your posts. As everyone has been saying, that ping mag image is gorgeous.
June 8th, 2006, 12:15 AM
fantastic gez been a fan of your work for a while now. the japanese print peice is most impressive
June 8th, 2006, 08:57 AM
I'm most definetly awestruck! These are wonderful. You are an amazing artist who give me an infinite amount of inspration. The third one, for PingMag kept me mezmerised for quite a long time. It is one of the most beutiful images I've ever seen. Honestly.
June 8th, 2006, 09:16 AM
Hi Gez, Great work as always! Have you ever considered going into footwear/fashion illustration? It is just that some pieces on your site have some stand out designs when it comes to clothing.
I am also liking the ukiyo-e style print, do you have any particular favourite woodblock artists or prints which inspire you?
June 8th, 2006, 02:15 PM
Hey, we're seeing a lot of work from you lately....and its still not enough. Whenever I see your name next to a post I know we are in for a visual treat.:wink:
June 8th, 2006, 06:32 PM
Wow, these ones have a big impact. I really love the colabs, especially the first one, "end of the day". the partial transparency is what really makes the composition interesting, in addition to the cartoonish hard shades.
Great work mate.
June 8th, 2006, 07:06 PM
I love the third one as much as everybody else.
But the "photo drawings" are definately something new.
Never saw something like that before, cool stuff.
June 9th, 2006, 10:20 AM
thanks a lot guys!
Deke - yes, 180 Amsterdam. Have you done stuff for them too? I love your online portfolio, great stuff.
Dave - thanks. i'm not really completely sure about the photo pics but i think i like them.. i can see why you're not sold though :)
rascar - thanks!
shinryu - cheers!
scrawneh - thanks!
dallas - thanks!
kian - not really, but thanks :)
kress - thanks! i'm really glad you like the photo pics that much. i don't have plans for prints at the moment, but maybe some time.. by the way, while i like james jean's work a lot, it's not really an influence. the biggest influences for that pic were the works of the shin-hanga artists from the first half of the 20th century and the superflat movement (murakami takashi, etc.)
joshua - cheers, and for the message on ping too :) the textures were a combination of a bunch of stuff, some blank washi paper i scanned, and various scanned areas of washi printed using the ukiyo-e technique (i.e. with wooden blocks).
gun - thanks!
arne - glad to hear it, thanks!
blue - cheers!
vigostar - thank you!
walnut - thanks, not right now, but maybe at some point.
jp - cheers, glad you liked the site.
bruno - cheers!
wes - thanks! your work is awesome.
zao - wow, thanks a lot.
yumiko - cheers!
groover - thanks!
mike - thanks, actually i like doing this kind of stuff more than character designs, because there is more leeway to be crazy and be yourself. it's all fun though.
shao - thanks!
kakatuz - thanks, that means a lot.
glynn - thanks, i'm glad you like my clothing designs. rather than straight fashion illustration, the area i'm most interested in is advertising illustration, which often overlaps.
dikiminster - hey man, how's it going. thanks for always being so kind with your posts.
jabo - thanks!
addict - cool, thanks!

Very nice. There is pure love in these picess.
June 10th, 2006, 12:06 PM
just when I thought your were falling into a bit of a repetitive pattern, you go and explode all envelopes and safety zones. Very very nice work man! I love the one for PingMag, and the first photo composite! Beautiful all around. Props to you sir!
