It has been a treacherous time as far as art-making goes for the past few days. Coming out of the gate with all the pent energy I started with has dwindled a bit and I think I needed to look back on what has inspired me to take on the Truck.
I think what I will do is post some links and photos of some artists, events and miscellany that get me excited to do my own work.
We all need a boost.
Swimming Cities of Serenissima - I just found out about this. Designed by the artist known as SWOON. A group of very lucky artist turned maritime adventurers.
J.R. Goldberg - I think Corinne originally sent me this website and I thank her again. A somewhat familiar style with that extra bit that sets it apart.
Jon Contino - Hand-Letterer and Illustrator out of New York
Wayne Thiebaud - The Man
Brian Rea - Very excited about his lettering and design work when it collides with tangible objects.
And some more stuff:
That will do for now. Thanks to my local Borders for their 20% to 40% off closing sale. Made off with some good material.
