Leandro Castelao

Posted by Alex

A few pieces by Argentinean illustrator Leandro Castelao. Terrific attention to detail and great color at work here. I feel like I’m looking at a retro instruction manual for some super bad ass birdhouse. Illustrations like this remind me of the work of Feric. Castelao’s are a little less intricate, but the playful/scientific aesthetic is reminiscent of some of the Fevolution renderings. Some impressive work from both artists.

I’m seriously fascinated by that second image down. I want a giant poster of that in my room.

Yeah, 2nd image is really spot-on, it communicates a little more than the others, really intriguing. Color choice really is excellent in each, love that goldenrod yellow and how it mixes with the deeper, redder orange.

it’s beautiful. makes you wonder at first what the design is for, until you come to the conclusion that the design is for itself.
