Images From Where? and By Who? Part. V

Posted by Jakub

So we all download and save images of items, graphics and photos from the internet daily and some of the time you have no idea where to give credit besides maybe the guy that posted it first or second randomly on a blog. I‘d like to get some answers on a few of these but also just post some interesting pieces that we come across that might have been sitting on our drives for awhile that are go to for inspiration or just found randomly on a forum with no info attached and just look great. Either way hopefully the point that gets across here is that they are inspiring in some sort of way to you as well.

For the 3 images up here: the first one I have a feeling is Will Calcutt’s who takes photos for Ghostly International but I have no proof either way it’s an intense shot, nothing like the average landscape shots you see these days. The second one I just wanted to know what is going on, is this a operator jail? The third one I like only in a Royksopp cute kinda of way, a bit amateur in parts and wears his influences on his sleeve and it feels abit unfinished but I enjoy the colors and shapes of the “mum like” mountains.

2nd picture looks like it are bomber nose cones being “polished” in a production facility.

I agree with barry on the second image. Definitely look like bomber canopies but I’m not sure what’s underneath all of them…very interesting.

The second one is Douglas A-20 Bombers being worked on at Douglas Aircraft plant, Long Beach, California.

I’ve seen the photo credited to Alfred Palmer, October 1942, but I’m not 100% sure. Its on the cover of a book I have, “The American People in World War II” by David M. Kennedy.

Its a really incredible photo, the lights reflected off the roof (at least that’s what it looks like) are amazing.

Mitch is correct.

20. “Stars over Berlin and Tokyo will soon replace these factory lights reflected in the noses of planes at Douglas Aircraft’s Long Beach, Calif., plant. Women workers groom lines of transparent noses for deadly A-20 attack bombers.” Alfred Palmer, October 1942. 208-AA-352QQ-5. (ww2_20.jpg)

Looks like the person who did #3 visits this very blog quite a bit. Even more so if you visit the behance link “L” posted.

A little bit surprised to see one of my posters over here. Thanks for the “critic”. That was the first sketch I did for the Ushuaia Shh… Mountain Film Festival, testing colours and shapes. There are other concepts (thanks L for the link) I did, influenced by Scott’s work (as you may notice). The final concept was, anyway, in a more clean b&w direction.

Glad to see that my work can inspire someone else. I suppose it’s an never-ending chain ;)

You can see more of the concept artwork I did, on my website.

ERASED – I was being rude sorry but isn’t graphic design like music, you can’t just rip off a designer and say you did it like that without telling people can you? I don’t know nothing about it so yeah
