Through his series, “The Birth of Feminism,” Daniel Almeroth shows the symbolic events that occurred before and after this political movement. In each piece he is trying to portray the way women were controlled by men through many different aspects of society and the path women of this time took to gain equality among men. I really enjoy his use of colors for this subject matter. The color palette is unexpected and I feel he could have taken a much different approach to such a serious political movement in our history, but I love the path he chose to take for this series.

Eric Timothy Carlson is a renaissance man interested in all forms of art and design. His “Figures from Life” illustrations are some of the most beautiful I have seen today. Carlson reinvents already existing images by integrating simple, but bold forms that obscure or transform the subject. Also lovely are his print and typographic projects that he does in collaboration with Michael Cina. Make sure you check out his work in our upcoming book Supernaturalism!
