In her new book East Meets West (Amazon), graphic artist Yang Liu illustrates the differences between Western and Eastern cultures. From the way people confront a problem, deal with the boss, approach a queue, self-perceive, or talk in restaurants, it’s quite obvious that behaviors range between the two hemispheres. As they say, a picture is a thousand words.

Julia Lillard Art, HOMAGE TO ERNST HAECKEL
Chris McDaniel is a plumber at a hotel chain in Tampa Bay, Florida. But he’s also a talented GIF artist.
He recently partnered up with illustrators from online print store Society6 to animate some art pieces.
I’ve always loved the world of psychedelic art and how people would turn the original art into flashy gifs. I wanted to add to the world of it because I always saw the same things. I ran across some work that George Redhawk did and was fascinated by the motion art. It took me about a year to find out what it was called and how to did it. Once I found out the method, well, you can say the rest is history.
I have a lot of people asking to show them how I do it. But I can’t. If you’re truly passionate about motion art, then you’ll take the time that is required to learn your own style.
“Nothing pains some people more than having to think.”
— Martin Luther King Jr.
Hard work is heart work is head work. To think in solitude is scarce in a world where your first opinion is always someone else’s.
My approach to illustration is about paring things down as much as possible. I try and get to the essence of my subject by using as few lines and colours as it needs to convey the core of the idea. – Malika Favre
