London based illustrator and animator, Celyn Brazier, sure has a way with color! Reminiscent of George Dunning’s psychedelic Yellow Submarine, this particular image depicts the sea and earth with its abundance of creatures, homes, and people. The composition is positioned so that everything feels connected. The images of floating jellyfish, zooming cyclists, and carefree birds also provide a nice natural rhythm within the imagined landscape.

Beautiful!

It’s nice but I don´t understand the connection between the first illustration and the word “spår”? Is that some kind of brand or something? In Swedish “spår” means traces, tracks or tells fortune…

Nice work! It is similar to Yellow Submarine (which I just watched the other day!) but Celyn definitely holds his own. Love the fluidity of everything – you can really feel the movement. That dancer is particularly striking.

Beautiful, but reminiscent of yellow submarine is being kind-its unfortunately directly knocking off Heinz Edelmann, who designed the film ( George Dunning was the the director but Heinz was the illustrator responsible for the complete look). It’s hard not to be influenced but the key is to make it your own. Right, Grain Edit?

Beautiful but “reminiscent” of Yellow Submarine is being kind. A lot of this work is directly knocking off Heinz Edelmann who designed the film ( George Dunning was the director of the animation but Heinz was the illustrator who created the complete look of the film, characters, environments, etc). Its hard not to be inspired by his work but the idea is to make it your own. right, Grain Edit?

Wow this is amazing. This is probably my favorite design blog. I love the quality of work on here. Thanks!

You can definitely tell that the Beatles has inspired his work….very much like The Yellow Submarine…love the girl dancing the best
