In late 2008 we introduced you to the work of Jeff Huang. Huang is a designer and Depthcore artist living in New York City who specializes in digital illustration and photo manipulation. I recently had the opportunity to meet Huang in person at the Depthcore Exhibition in Soho. Since it has been a while since we have featured him on this site, we decided to show you some of his most recent works. Please take a moment to review what Huang has been working on over the last 3 years.
This was an illustration to promote 02's new HotShot Wifi device. Main attractions featured in the illustration are from Southern Ireland. Created mainly with photo manipulation, with some 3D elements.

This piece was a personal priece about a confusing time in Huang’s life. Look closely...there are no duplications or simple flips in this 'mirror' image - lots of time was spent to make sure of it.

She's Found Her Wings
Personal artwork, in memory of my close friend's grandma who passed away. She watched me grow up, so she was much of a grandma to me as well. She was always so kind and loving. Watching her wither away slowly was painful, but I know she is in a better place now and I'm happy that she has found her wings.
Collaboration with the amazing Nadia Huggins. The concept is that everyone is born innocent and pure, but sooner or later, we are forced to put on a mask (facade) in order to blend in with the world some way or another. We never really know who someone is even if we think we do. People can be deceiving, and we can never be sure if it's one's true self that we are having a relationship with, or if it's just another mask. We may think that we truly know someone, but...how can we be sure?
T-Mobile MyTouch Orlando
Print illustration created for the MyTouch NBA Campaign. The theme for this was the Orlando Magic.
