The New Masthead Illustration by Kurt Pfaff ROCKS!

Posted on | November 9, 2006 | No Comments

The masthead image is a masterwork of digital illustration by Kurt Pfaff. Kurt’s work is full of wonderful layered detail. Each element is painstakingly created as you can see from the coffee cup detail below. Some elements of the illustration were adapted from reference photography such as the image on the screen of the computer in the illustration, and the batik art-work on the wall in the background of the illustration.

This level of detail and expression shows up in all of Kurt’s work – from editorial illustration like this to his portraiture, biomedical, food, 3D illustration to his work as a logo and packaging designer.

Take a look at Kurt’s work and contact him at His work is worth every penny and you definitely won’t be disappointed!
