Sneak Peak: New Works by Eddie Martinez

securedownload-6
Eddie Martinez, impasto painter extraordinaire, creates a strange a wonderful world detailing potted plants, cosby sweaters, googly-eyed owls and beyond. He recently sent me some sneak-peek shots from his studio (inside a barn in Massachusets) of finished works for upcoming exhibitions NYC and Copenhagen! Great works, and a chance to see them “in situ” before getting hung on the clean, white walls of gallery spaces. I had the pleasure of interviewing Eddie back in April….which you can read here.

Laurie Simmons

Laurie Simmons

I’m quite excited to see new work from Laura Simmons . Glamor magazine asked some of America’s top female artists to define the concept of glamor, and these images are the result of Laurie Simmons’. She has stayed true to her hand made house wife aesthetic and really made this project her own. I like how these images juxtapose pornographic images with a child’s doll house, her critic on an overtly sexual society within the concept of glamor comes through very well.

Fumi Mini Nakamura

Originally from Japan, illustrator and graphic design artist Fumi Mini Nakamura now works out of the NYC area. Her works in graphite and colored pencil feature a unique cast of characters: human figures rendered in striking photo-negative-like detail; flocks of feathered and toothed creatures; the occasional skull. The mixture of natural and imaginary elements always seems just right, rather than chaotic and disorganized. Examine some more of her works for yourself after the jump.

Jaime Zuverza’s Lo-Fi Retro Rock Posters

I always see those “Keep Austin Weird” stickers everywhere and now that I’ve seen the work of Jaime Zuverza it all makes sense. This Texan illustrator/designer’s lo-fi sensibility mixed with ironic retro imagery is the stuff that’s dreamed of for rock posters. Each mixed media poster is magnificently stranger than the last proving that Jaime is doing his part to keep thing pretty damn weird in Austin!

Alex Konahin’s Intensely Intricate Boroque Drawings

Alex Konahin

Alex Konahin is a draughtsman who works with an almost Maximalist desire to fill a blank page with intricate detail. Working on A3 paper and using fineliners and india ink, Konahin renders with shading and line-work that simultaneously resemble mechanical, architectural and floral drawing styles.

The Latvian-based artist’s most recent series, Little Wings, uses various insects as the starting point for what turn out to be intensely detailed, baroque-esque drawings.  Says the artist and graphic designer, “I’ve been inspired to create this series last summer in the Netherlands. It was a fantastic time living in the countryside away from noisy cities…” Common insects such as flies, bees and dragonflies become the base for the draping hard-edged, and perfectly shaded lines of Konahin’s pen.

Designer Creates a Different Silhouette of His Daughter Every Week

brent holloman design7 brent holloman design8brent holloman design1

Graphic Design can often get the bad rap of lacking soul or substance.  Designer Brent Holloman, however, created a series with heart.  When his daughter was born in 2012 he decided to create a new silhouette of her each week.  Ranging from illustration to sculpture, each week brings a profile of his little girl.  These are a sampling of the many pieces he created.  Holloman comments on the series:

” With the arrival of our first baby girl there is one thing I hear all the time… “They grow up so fast.” So I decided to start a project where I can mark the stages of her growth by doing a silhouette of her each week for her first year (or as long as I can keep it going).”
