Gianmarco Magnani

Print006A

Inspired by the futuristic animation of Katsuhiro Otomo‘s 1988 film, Akira, Gianmarco Magnani’s latest prints bring a third dimension to an otherwise flat medium. His two part series, “Silence Television”, draws from the linear style of traditional Japanese anime, and maintains a simliar graphic appeal. In his first set of four illustrations, entitled “Riders and Villains”, Magnani hoped to create a tension between good and bad in his riders. (As he pointed out, good without evil is just uninteresting). His second set, “The Forgotten Monarchy” marries a modern aesthetic with vestiges of the styles of 16th century European monarchies.

Dutch designer Felix Weigand’s beautiful typography. I love the way his print work is documented. It’s difficult to translate the medium and temporality of paper and folds but he does it very well.

Jessica Ward

Jessica Ward has a brilliantly dark mind.  The majority of her work is black and white, which really helps to maintain her macabre aesthetic.  The nature of her drawings feel sexual and violent, while tempting and frightening the viewer.  She has an interesting series of drawings that depicts deities of various eating disorders.  According to her bio, Jessica has struggled with eating disorders herself, so the diety series comes from a very personal place.
