“The Astounding Problem of Andrew Novick features the overwhelming and unusual collections of an eccentric individual who does not consider himself an artist. In total, Andrew Novick estimates he has over a hundred collections: Barbie dolls of every variety, Chihuahua figurines, clown paintings, anything related to teeth or braces. The truth is he has far more things than will or can ever be organized into a “collection.” Inside his home and in his rented storage space he has stacks, piles and boxes of answering machine cassette tapes full of incoming phone messages, more answering machine cassette tapes with recordings of recording almost every conversation he has ever had with a telemarketer, jars ripe with formaldehyde-free dead animals, uncommon foods and more.

Did you just awake from a twenty year coma? Then youre probably wondering where you can pick up a current issue of .info, a magazine dedicated to Mac computers way back when they were called “Amigas“. Sorry dude. The nerds are dead, we killed all of them. But hey, cheer up! You can still see some knee slappin’ episodes of .info magazinesBryce: one of the first comic strips created digitally.
Alvvino, Berlin based design/illustrator creates a style that seems long past. When i first peeked at his website I thought to myself “Classic!” Then I thought “no no, you’re just an intern here. You have no authority to make judgements like that” But the craftsmanship of these pieces are inevitable and their atmosphere is both pleasant and consuming.
