Other Worlds

Ori Toor is an illustrator and animator who makes chaotic, colorful, and beautiful artwork. He has illustrated magazine editorials for The New York Times, Wired, and Bloomberg. He’s also worked with clients such as Adobe, Cartoon Network, and Nike. Among working for various clients and magazines, he spends a lot of time creating work for himself.

The majority of his work is strange and magical, and Ori is not afraid to use color. He believes that his work represents worlds that you, and Ori himself, can get lost in. His work reminds me of wimmelbilder-style drawings, which are incredibly complex drawings with hidden details. A popular wimmelbilder you may recognize is Where’s Waldo?

Although Ori’s work does not have hundreds of hidden characters or items, his work is still massively complex and possibly overwhelming for some people. The concepts of his artwork may also hard to pin down with no context, but the cohesive colors and forms make his work feel balanced.

    First of all, the artist’s work is visually amazing. There is so much to look at and it seems like he thinks much like a designer when making these. I say that because, in a lot of the examples pictures that you provided, there is a visual hierarchy. Very unique work!

    I recognize this guy’s works from every time I’ve opened up an adobe program, but I had no idea that they all came from the same person! I am ecstatic to know who created these designs because every time I see them I truly get inspired, or reminded to try and experiment with color and line instead of being afraid of it.
