Mike Lee creates great textural illustrations that feel like fuzzy childhood memories. The above image is from Nucleus Gallery’s Where The Wild Things Are tribute show (Terrible Yellow Eyes). I know it isn’t Mike’s newest work, but I love his fresh interpretation of the characters. Mike is currently working as a color key artist for Blue Sky animation studios – which is interesting, considering most of his personal work seems to be black and white.
Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets. You know that anyone who goes by one name is cool as cool can be. So that’s why you should definitely go see Lola’s second solo exhibition, “Ipsum Factum”, at Corey Helford gallery. The opening is on Saturday March 27th, 8-10 pm. But if you absolutely cannot make it out for the reception, the work will be up until April 14th. After the jump, you can get one more sneak peek of Lola’s new work before the show. Read More
So this week I’m looking around to buy a new mattress, and it got me thinking about these pieces I saw a little while back by Canadian Brian Hunter. The images he renders fit the tone of the paintings so well, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen materials better suited for their subject matter. It’s always exciting when I encounter something I’ve never seen before that seems so completely obvious. The sleeping bag idea is simply genius!

A series entitled Vanitas included photographs reflecting old Dutch still lifes in a similar vain but with a most sharp and contemporary air that was both refreshing and humorous.
