This week’s Follow Favorites spotlights two very different — but equally inspiring — Shutterstock contributors. Photographer Arnold van Wijk captures the majesty of natural landscapes (and their inhabitants) from Tuscany to Iceland, while illustrator Gudinny embraces modern and urban art aesthetics in a colorful, eye-popping vector collection. Check out a sample of both artists’ work below, along with notes on why we chose them from Shutterstock Curator Liz Lapp, then click through to view their full portfolios and start Following them yourself.
“The composition and mood in van Wijk’s wondrous landscapes is breathtaking. He seamlessly shifts from the vastness of the scene to its animals and habitats, all using the same rich techniques. Plus, being a native of the Netherlands, van Wijk presents a wonderful example of elevated local content.”
“I love the visual grit and urban graffiti vibe of these pieces. Gudinny’s vectors provide wonderful visual movement by utilizing different line widths, colors, and patterns, making them ideal for use as dynamic backgrounds or design elements.”
