Dutch designer Karin Mientjes has some really great conceptual work and a really great pattern sense.
Still sloooowly working my way through tabs, and here’s another. I heard from happy times designer/illustrator Eric Smith and immediately noticed his eye for color, type, & patterns. Sometimes all 3 at once! I also dig the “happy in my ness” poster which I believe is a from an old Ben Harper song. Thank you Eric!
Drawer & designer Michael Russem sent me his charismatic drawings a while back. He has Ordinal Linguistic Personification which means he has assigned all the letters/numbers human traits, which I think it adds another level to his work. Thanks so much, Michael!
Well not mine, actually, but Dawn’s. I found her lovely treasury of paper goodies a couple days ago on Simplesong and I was thoroughly impressed. I wish my workspace was so well styled & organized! Dawn occasionally sells the paper or sets up trades too.
This dude is awesome, anybody who makes witty art is a star in my book. I couldn’t find photos of it, but he has actually built out a 70′s style manikin with a working stereo for a head with the speakers hidden in the arms/hands. So great.
I don’t want to jinx myself in case I get sick of this song, but it might be the summer’s It One for me. Easily one for blasting. Plus Karen O is like a brunette Debbie Harry to me in this video too. My friend James said she wears the outfits she does because all she wants is for people to come to the shows and dance shamelessly, and if they see her wearing a ridiculous get-up then they’ll be inspired to drop their facade too. Gotta love that, eh?
