Today we start with a look at the works of Ferdi B. Dick (aka Disko), a 3D illustrator and sculptor based in Cape Town. Ferdi brandishes a diverse range of 3D illustration skills, including rich textures, liquid depiction (splashes, droplets and fluid effects on objects), 3D typography, photorealistic packshots, character illustration, figurines and sculptural mimicry. Largely self-taught, he has honed his craft through years of experience working on projects for both local and global clients.
With a creative process that places emphasis on tactile art and the sculptural form, it’s no surprise that Ferdi recently ventured into sculpture as a sideline endeavour – this creative outlet providing a lively synergy with his original discipline. His sculptures are largely character-driven, with a comical, childlike and edgy quality. They start out as digital models, find material form via 3D printing, and finally are cast in bronze.
The result of these creative feats is a body of work that plays superbly in the overlap between digital and tangible.
