Skate­boarder Lan­don Noth­nagel is also a pretty rad dig­i­tal artist

www.pho­to­shopcre­ I’m a se­nior graphic de­signer and il­lus­tra­tor from Cape Town, South Africa, who has a zest for art and de­sign. I’ve al­ways been drawn to vis­ual com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and the op­por­tu­ni­ties I get to bring con­cepts alive us­ing my cre­ative skills re­ally ex­cite me. I also ride as a pro­fes­sional down­hill skate­boarder so when I’m not de­sign­ing, you’ll find me on my board.



The Colour Green

This was an ab­stract 3D im­age cre­ated in Pho­to­shop orig­i­nally, and in­spired by the colour green. Selections and ad­just­ments helped to cre­ate this fi­nal im­age.

Born From The City

This was a pho­tomon­tage cre­ated in Adobe Pho­to­shop CS6 us­ing a va­ri­ety of blend modes, fil­ters and loads of deep etch­ing. It was an en­try for a Pho­to­shop Cre­ative Read­ers’ Chal­lenge.

lan­don’s tip Re­search is vi­tal in cre­at­ing great artworks, so use the out­doors, real life ex­pe­ri­ences and so­cial me­dia to gain in­spi­ra­tion.
