Linda Kim

Los Angeles based illustrator and designer Linda Kim’s work is the stuff of dreams -  wind-swept scapes just slightly off-beat of reality. Her inspiration comes from direct observation of the actual world, using as many of her senses as possible to create her interprations. I’m particularly excited to see that Linda binds her artwork into beautiful, well-crafted books that act as mini-portfolios!

And you thought Sharpies were just for labeling boxes and writing notes on post-its. Hollis Brown Thornton has elevated the humble permanent marker by using it as one of his primary tools in his artwork. Thornton also does some really cool things with canvas and paper transfers, resulting in different variations on his original works with worn textures.

A few weeks ago we featured LA photographer Dave Tada and his collection of analog images. Well, last Saturday night, Dave showed up with his Fuji Intax camera at Beautiful/Decay’s Art Works Every Time opening to capture the happenings! Between the live music, the art-adorned walls, the free ice cream, free t-shirts and plenty of free Colt 45, there was plenty of silliness to be had -  particularly towards the end of the evening. Thanks for the pics Dave.

Sonya Derman is an artist and illustrator making her way in San Francisco. Her brush is unwavering and filled with anointed colors that cue the subject matter to an extremely beautiful place. Working with a very specific tone, Sonya’s work eschews the natural for a slight tilt; and it looks terrific.

She also recently produced a ‘zine that is available for only $4.

Claire Sloan

1-1

Photographer Claire Sloan spent the last year documenting her life in a photographic journal, “the diary,” recording images of sleeping, meals, and the weather, so that each month stood out from the last. Be sure to check out her site and the rest of “the diary;” I love how she moves from black and white to stronger and stronger color as she transitions from the cold winter months into the summer.
