I love me a well designed show poster or flyers so stumbling onto the Portfolio of Jon Smith was a nice surprise. I first saw Jon’s work at the Renegade Craft Fair in SF and have visited his site several times to check out what he’s been up to. The color’s in these posters are strong and the typography is solid as a rock so check out Jon’s site, read his rant filled blog posts, and pick up a poster or two.
We posted Todd Knowpke’s work a while back but he has some new works on his site so it’s time to take a second look. When i first saw Todd’s work online I thought “wow these are funky shaped stretchers.” It took me a few minutes to realize that I was staring at massive, mind blowing, sewn pieces of fabric! What I love best is that Todd keeps all the various moves that most painters make but makes them his own by introducing sewn fabric into the mix. The result is a collage like surface full of stitching, layered fabric, and awesome detail.
