Behind the Project: AniWall

In this series we will look deeper into a work that was especially admired in our community: AniWall, created by Bram Vanhaeren. Bram, a 24 year-old artist with a strong passion for portraits – and risk – was kind enough to share with us his process and inspiration for this recent project as well as his own strategy to make his creations successful!

Can you describe your process in creating this project?
Most people would be surprised if I told them it only takes me about two hours to complete a portrait! I believe the energy in my work comes from the fact that I don’t – or can’t – overthink about it. It is created within a very short period of time with a lot of energy and emotions. I love to embrace my small errors during this creation! I am all about – “Wow I love this song, this artist moves me! Let’s put this into a portrait”. I then draw for one hour, add colors, animation, music … Breathe and before I am able to judge the project I publish it on the web! I release it and watch the reactions. As you can see I embrace the chance to fail. I love it; I try to bring it as pure and honest as I can.

Most Appreciated Projects: Monthly Roundup

Appreciations are a way to send genuine kudos to another creative professional on Behance. This is our community’s way of curating the network, so that the best projects gain the most exposure. Here’s a look at two of the most appreciated projects on Behance this month:

Most Appreciated Behance
Don’t these character designs from Berlin’s Vivien Bertin look about ready to jump right out of the screen and start talking to you? We’re loving all the personality and emotion that comes across in these designs. And +1 on the fact that Bertin gives an inside into her process and the tools she uses to create.

Behance Most APpreciated
This Volkswaagen campaign pokes fun at the common white lies we tell our kids (some funny ones after the cut!), but we’re guessing what made this project a crowd-pleaser this month are the killer accompanying illustrations. With a distinctive color palette and an creative use of negative space, you’ll enjoy this work from Tom Haugomat and Raphael Ghisalberti.
