Daniel Johansson is a freelancing graphic artist that goes by moniker, Venom Palatte. We discovered this gem in our Beautiful/Decay flickr pool. His bright colors and sometimes humorous ‘vector-collages’ really stood out. We like you Daniel Johansson!
Tim Lahan is a New York based illustrator and designer who happened to float to the surface in our Flickr pool. His fun retro-style of work does exactly what he wants by communicating visually in a simple and fun way. Keep the fun coming Lahan, we love it!
Not really sure what Placer Deshacer (it seems they are a musical group with an alter-presence) is about but these pictures remind me of educational videos from the 70s and 80s, or the vague way that conceptual art is photographed. I love how the absence of color makes the human body look so mysterious and full of knowledge…
Flickr is a great home for internet rascals of the creative type. Cody Brant’s wonky but eye-catching collage art definitely fit the bill. The magic randomness of cutting and pasting then committing the arrangement to permanence with a glue stick!
I have blogged about Lachlann Rattray before in the stone and mortar days of our old blog, but now that we have these nifty “tag” things, I wanted to formally re-introduce this artist to the new system as one of my fave Flickr-Finds-Forevs along with some of his new stuff. His work is hilarious and almost always composed of gooey deformed pastel neon combinations- usually mocking celebrities and humans in general. He also prints his own awesome shirts and sweatshirts. They’re all so good I don’t know how to choooooseeeeeeee ahhhhhh….
The drawings of Dean Sullivan (Flickr moniker A E I O U) could make seriously awesome wallpaper but only if you don’t mind being creeped out once in a while when you get too close to it. The densely meticulous lines create lush eco-systems for drippy hairy demons and caves…I wanna go! He also makes really awesome shirt/sweat shirt graphics and possesses this thing that make me think he’s actually a 5-year old with a more perverse imagination than usual picking up the markers and pencil for the first time and scribbling away. It’s great!
Ginette Lapalme makes awesome illustration work about animals, animals loving animals, animal loving humans, and humans that remind me of animals.
Michael Dotson’s paintings look like tripped out buildings in another dimension of Second Life. Or in First Life, coated with thick layers of pastel and neon paint. I really like this fanciful approach to architecture.
