You might not recognize his name, but you’ve definitely seen Jean Jullien‘s work. His illustrations have appeared on magazine covers to billboards, each one combined with his trademark observational humor and crudely drawn characters. Jullien’s philosophy is bringing the artistic side to everyday practical design. In both his commissioned and personal work, he explores topics like modern relationships, media consumption, and our insatiable appetite for validation in a way that’s witty and thought-provoking. The pieces in the gallery above were featured in a recent exhibition at Kemistry Gallery, but you can browse more of his recent work here.

In this vintage Disney documentary we see four artists paint one tree. The point of the video is to prove that every artist has their own unique style, idea, and perspective when it comes to their personal art. Although the four artists featured in the video are animators who are used to working collaboratively with other artists, when working solo, their styles are drastically different. In the video, one artist paints the tree abstractly with bold colors and geometric shapes, while another takes a more detailed approach.
The video is a little long, with the first half of the video focused on the making of Sleeping Beauty. If you’re only interested in seeing the four artists painting the tree, jump to 6:40. However, if you’re looking for an impressive perspective on how art is created, watch the whole thing.
