I just recently discovered Neil Krug‘s website but I’ve been seeing his work all over the place for years. Neil’s photos and videos combine a perfect mix of vintage, psychedelic, and sex. If I ever start a band this guys getting a phone call.
As glossy, digital, full color perfection becomes the norm on brochures and other printed matter, the photocopier has become more of an artistic medium than a simple reproduction system. Jakob Johnsen’s collages and image manipulations are sublimely composed and pull on dark, thought-provoking subject matter.
I can’t tell you how many times I run across designers who have only a few pieces in their portfolio and don’t have a proper portfolio. If you’re 25 or older and don’t have your act together check out the portfolio of 17 year old designer Nicola Kubail. This young portland based designer is keeping it professional with a cohesive body of work and a clean portfolio site. Keep it going Nicolas!
Ana Janssen’s erie hyperrealistic paintings remind me of the calm before a storm. In most of the work young teenagers sit still and stare at the viewer with an intense gaze while various animals sit on their shoulders, lay in their lap, or attempt to take a bite out of the figures hand.
Laura Crosta has a plethora of work in her portfolio but her balloon series is one of my favorites. Also make sure to check out the “I Date A Hooker” series which documents Jeff Fischer’s dating highlights with hookers.
