Siggi Eggertsson

Siggi Eggertsson, born 1984, is an illustrator from Iceland who studied at Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavík and Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee. After working in New York and London, he now lives and works in Berlin. His work is so amazing, that I agree with So-Me (a blogging Ed Banger dude) you won't find one work that isn’t good on his website. Just check out his Illustrations for the 2nd album of Gnarls Barkley, "The Odd Couple".
The above illustration "Plein Air was an idea that I got last year when I was living in Berlin. I wanted to modernize the working methods of the Impressionists, who took their canvases outside and painted what was in front of them. My idea was to take my computer outside, and draw what i saw. This image was drawn on top of a 12 floor building in Friedrichshain. The battery in my computer does not last for ever, so I had to do it in several turns. This is an ongoing project."
