Originally from Niagara Falls, Canada, Jon Klassen currently resides in Los Angeles. In addition to showcasing artwork with The Ebeling Group, The Wurst Gallery, and Gallery Nucleus, Jon has worked on visual development and drawings of sets and props for the lovely, stop-motion animated film, Coraline. The colors and shapes he employs are muted and earthy, organic and geometric. I love his simple, folksy patterns and hand drawn text.
We have images of PJ Richardson‘s submission for the Diesel x Keystone Design Union (KDU) “Only The Brave” Exhibition, which opened on April 30th in NYC.

The works from armes de chine are deeply rooted in this period of intense experimentation.

Scott Campbell (AKA Scott C) is a comic book artist, illustrator, and art director for Double Fine Productions. And, quite frankly, his work is adorable.
Stina Persson is an incredibly talented illustrator hailing from Stockholm, Sweden. I’m a huge fan of her rich, full color palette paired with seductive, free-flowing lines. Even the way she handles cut paper is so sophisticated!
Gringoflash has put together an awesome project! They have taken all of their favorite artists and visual designers and made them “MVAs” so to speak (Most Valuable Artist). I like this bizarre combination of two fields that are often kept separated - art and sports.
