It’s midweek already! And if you’re already suffering from post-new-year blues, let Grant Snider’s incidental comics cheer you up! And get this, he’s studying to be an orthodontist while drawing cartoons on the side. Talk about double lives! I know the next time I’m waiting at the dentist, I’ll be conjuring up some story about the hidden super powers of my favorite dentist (who is almost 70, by the way!)
Oh and Grant has a poster shop too!
Matthew Lyon is an illustrator from Britain, and his style is beautifully retro-inspired, and yet thoroughly modern. It could be the combination of retro-tinged hues made fresh with Matthew’s geometric stylings, but I do believe that the textures behind them tie each piece together superbly.
Happy new year folks!
For the first post of the year, I’m thrilled to share these series of acrylic paintings done by Francesco Zorzi, who created them for use in his master thesis in product design. Called SEMI, which is an Italian word that carries the meaning of ‘seeds’, ‘half’, and ‘partial’, Francesco has successfully brought meaning to the concept by evoking a sense of incompleteness through a combination of elements within each piece.
For me, I personally love each one. He has strived to make his thesis book much like a magazine, and in turn, these illustrations are very editorial in design. You can see more over at his portfolio.
