Here is Chicken Billy’s recipe to his bright vector illustraions: take Hanna Barbera, Hulk Hogan, History Channel, James Brown, Fort Worth Zoo, B.B. King, Hank Williams III, Jesus Christ, a pair of cowboy boots and a pair of jeans, some Mexican beer, your choice, and put them on a surface only using flat vector shapes. Well then… there you have it. Taste like Chicken!
20 year old photographer Kelley Smith’s inanimate animals make me feel all warm and fuzzy.
The Arms Project is the undertaking of Lisa Manfre (Flickr user frootloops). Not much information is known about her except from the Flickr testimonials she has received: she loves cereal of all sorts and is “probably the most harmonious and nice person on flickr.” That’s saying alot! The pictures sure are sweet though (in multiple senses of the word).
Since I started Beautiful/Decay while attending the Maryland Institute College Of Art I have a soft spot for artists working in Baltimore. There’s something about living Baltimore (see “The Wire” for more on that) that changes you and your artwork forever. Baltimore is a giant pot of crazy that just seeps into your work and wont let go. Keep up the good work Suzanna and make us Alums proud!
