WEEKLY #12
Starting today, our weekly updates will have a new format. Instead of publishing large batches of freshly added styles, we will put out less—to focus more on each artist and technique.

In the first update of the new kind, I want to say THANK YOU to the Midlibrary community. To you! For your support, feedback, and your constant suggestions. We test every name you send, carefully catalog them, and write a short bio for each artist (for the future website)—and this is how Midlibrary grows. So thank you! In this update, we feature ten mind-blowing styles that you suggested.

DISCLAIMER

It is impossible to feature ALL of the styles you suggested at once, so I will try to make it a tradition and publish lists of top suggested artists at least monthly!
LIBRARY UPDATE

10 MIND-BLOWING STYLES
THAT YOU SUGGESTED

by James C. Christensen --v 4
JAMES C. CHRISTENSEN
Suggested by Esther Tan

American fantasy painter and illustrator James C. Christensen (1942-2017) is creating art characterized by insane attention to detail, eye-catching characters, and the overall atmosphere of surrealism. Christensen's Midjourney style is a definitive pick if you want to create eye-catching fantasy art.

KAZUMASA NAGAI
Suggested by our Instagram follower Donald Edison @lux_and_bird

Japanese graphic designer Kazumasa Nagai's (1929-2007) work is a treat for anyone who loves modern Japanese design. And in Midjourney he deserves the place on your favorites list if you are into circular geometrical abstractions with unique color pallets and intricate scenes in them!

PAULA REGO
Suggested by deluxe_lemonade

Portuguese figurative painter Paula Rego's (born 1935) style is powerful surrealistic paintings with vibrant colors and dynamic motion. It is both astonishing and unsettling with its bold colors and bizarre settings.

FRANK QUITELY
Suggested by Midlibrary patron Josaías Ribeiro Jr.

Frank Quitely (born 1968) is a Scottish graphic novelist whose Midjourney style is a real standout for comic book artists and amateurs. If you want to tell fantasy or sci-fi story in a beautiful, refined and soft manner—Frank Quitely is the name for you.

ABIGAIL LARSON
Suggested by Esther Tan

American fantasy illustrator Abigail Larson's style incorporates vintage and fantasy elements in a sharp, expressive manner. With its distinct dark-ish Victorian romantic vibes, her name is a perfect fit for Gothic and steampunk enthusiasts' prompts.

by Ludwig Bemelmans --v 4
LUDWIG BEMELMANS
Suggested by Adam Twardoch

The style of Austro-Hungarian illustrator and children's book writer Ludwig Bemelmans (1898-1962) is vivid and heart-warming, making it perfect for those into illustration for children or quirky cartoonish caricatures.

by James Bidgood --v 4
JAMES BIDGOOD
Suggested by our Instagram follower @diszko_

Queer-art pioneer James Bidgood's (born 1933) photography and cinematography is a must-see for those who enjoy erotic and underground art-house. And his style in Midjourney is simply fantastic, bringing neon-lit, crazy-colored, erotically-charged results.

QUILTING/QUILTED
Suggested by Betty Cowart

Quilting is a traditional textile art that involves layering fabrics, a filler, and usually a backing and then sewing them together to create a warm and decorative cover. Midjourney's Quilting style (summoned best with the prompt modifier quilted) is a way to create unique and personalized designs—landscape, objects, even whole characters—and add a warm and decorative touch to your generation.

by Henry Darger --v 4
HENRY DARGER
Suggested by a mysterious stranger AKA anonymous

American outsider artist Henry Darger's (1892-1973) style is a true gem for unique, withered fantasy illustrations permeated with a sense of nostalgia and light childhood sadness. Perfect for fairy tale book illustrations (and not only)!

by Carlos Cruz Diez --v 4
CARLOS CRUZ DIEZ
Suggested by Ivan Perez

Venezuelan Kinetic artist Carlos Cruz Diez's (1923-2019) art is a fantastic take on color and optical illusion. Sharp geometry, vintage electronics vibes, and patterns that will make you question the reality inside your generation—this is what you get with Diez's name in your prompt.
