|a compilation of products, furniture, jewelry, architecture and artists that float our boat.||FURTHER EXAMINATION:|
Nice illustration by Wesley Eggersbrecht. Ice cream truck dudes are pretty scary.
A Keith Haring graphic for Sigg. I like that it is basic colors over white. Now if they would only do a “Crack is Wack!” version… Growing up we would drive past this mural every time we came to visit family in the city. It was probably my first exposure to art that wasn’t in a stuffy and boring museum. It’s just out there in the city, a wall of blazing orange on a handball court off the FDR.
Heisuke Kitazawa is an amazing illustrator from Japan. I love the detail and color in his work.
Amazing monster drawings on post-it notes by John Kenn.
My brother recommended I check out Abara, a manga series from 2005-2006. It’s got some pretty nice future-distopia images in it, a few are a la Lebbeus Woods. In the story, people live in infinitely tall buildings, constantly being built and rebuilt atop one another. I wonder if he influenced Tsutomu Nihei’s work at all?
