William J. Meyer, a Behance member since 2009, was able to transform a classic form of old media, the book, into an award-winning new media passion project.
A few years back I wrote a fantasy-adventure novel called FIRE ON THE MOUND. Looking for different ways to share the book, a friend recommended that I turn it into a weekly podcast. Using vocal talent, sound effects, and an original score, my small team produced a total of 42 episodes, and the podcast novel has won both a Parsec Award and a Geekie Award.
Not only was William’s character artwork featured on Character Design Served, but the trailer, made with work from Brian Ellis (concepting artist from Hasbro and Lego), was featured on Motion Graphics Served later in 2014.
It’s certainly worth a look (and a listen)! Click the images above to see the corresponding projects and be sure to follow William here.

In this series, we’ll look deeper into some of the projects on Behance.net that are especially admired in our community. Gem Fletcher collaborated with Photographer Mads Perch to create the beautiful series Moving Time. Gem Fletcher is an Art Director who works with photographers around the world, creating award-winning photography, marrying highly conceptual art direction with the unique visual style of her collaborators. We were lucky enough to gain more insight into their project from Gem!
What was your inspiration for this project?
I’m really interested in the idea of destabilization. This takes different forms, sometimes it can be about creating an illusion, leaving the viewer questioning the construction of an image and sometimes it’s about exploring the tension between reality and fantasy.
With this project we wanted to play with using projection as a material, a method of transformation within the framework of a traditional portrait.
The project was something Mads and I had discussed for several months and although we had some specific technical and aesthetic ideas, we also wanted to leave room for play and exploration. Read more →
We’re thrilled to debut our 2014 year in review! Thanks to you, 2014 was full of great moments and amazing work. We can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in 2015!
Each month, our curators select one ProSite to feature as “ProSite of the Month”. Our December selection goes to London-based Andy Hau, who runs a studio specializing in architecture, product design, and graphic design. Inspired by everything from the Eames Brothers to the largest of buildings to the smallest of logos, they describe their design solutions as “slightly left-of-center.” If their work is anything like their website design – we’re hooked.

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:
Talk about raising the bar for movie posters! Gianluca Maruotti of Rome, Italy, hand-made these stunningly detailed clay characters for an Italian film this month. One commenter said “it’s a shame I can’t appreciate again” – we have to agree!
Simon Prades evocative, dramatic illustrations were recently featured in publications like The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Guardian, and Medium.com We love this Phillip Seymour Hoffman tribute published in the New Republic. Click for many more!
In this series, we’ll look deeper into some of the projects on Behance.net that are especially admired in our community. Carlos Arrojo created illustrations for the book “Geografía mágica” by Ana Cristina Herreros. He is well known for his use of watercolor and design, and considers himself a versatile illustrator and a responsible person who knows how to adapt to each project. We were lucky enough to hear more about his process and inspiration for the illustrations.
What was your inspiration for this project? How do you decide which color palettes to use?
When I start a project, I usually review documentation looking for ideas. In this case it wasn’t so necessary because I relied on personal drawings done previously. Siruela contacted me after seeing some watercolors where I played with the ambiguity between figure and landscape, recreating spaces and volumes by weaving lines. The book is called “Geografía mágica” and contains a number of legends about Spanish geography, with anthropomorphic mountains, enchanted lakes, giants, demons, heroes…
The content is very inspiring so it facilitates me to do the job. About color, I’ve worked with a lot of freedom, leaving me. My intention was that colors of each illustration transmitted the magic and fantasy of the histories, that’s the reason of that coloring.
