Over the last month or so, IPMM has been working with the incredibly talented London-based illustrator, Iain Macarthur. His work was previously featured on IPaintMyMind, and he’s been getting attention from other outlets too – and it’s clearly well-deserved. Iain’s intricate detail and precision approach yields some of the most incredible images we’ve ever seen. When we were ready to move on from “the brain image” to establish our own original logo, it seemed like a no-brainer to commission the project with Iain. We’re so excited about the finished product, the IPaintMyMind mandala logo.
We went back and forth honing the design, but the reason the IPaintMyMind mandala logo and text look great is because of Iain’s skill, patience, and dedication. Ahead we ask Iain Macarthur a bit about his work and development as a young and emerging artist with a bright future and an impressive portfolio. The kid has gobbs of skill to spare, and we’re honored to have his imprint on our nonprofit media project. Here’s our Mini-Interview with the man behind the new IPaintMyMind Mandala Logo.
IPMM: Iain, first off dude, we’re so excited about the new IPaintMyMind mandala logo and type you’ve created for us, thanks again!!
IM: No problems dude!
IPMM: When we featured your work a while back, we led with the image of the strikingly beautiful woman with what we’ve come to call the organic-cyborg-half-face. What pieces have garnered the biggest response from folks?
IM: Glad to hear it caught your eye… I like to think its more of an elegant floral piece then a mechanical cyborg portrait. The owl design which I’ve done over completely in patterns, got the most responses from people, it also got used as a front cover for the digital artist magazine a while back, which I was pretty happy about. I did that and several other animal pattern pieces as a little personal project for myself, & didn’t realise that all the designs would be such a popular thing. I just wanted to experiment with different types of shapes and patterns…
