Illustration // Friday, November 15, 2013
Tran Nguyen is a Georgia-based artist. Born in Vietnam and raised in the States, she received a BFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design. She is fascinated with creating visuals that can be used as a psycho-therapeutic support vehicle, exploring the mind's dreamscape.

‘My work plays with the combination of good and evil, beauty and degeneration. I’m often dealing with relationships between people and their environments. My work offers alternate views of reality.

This past weekend, we visited the opening of Travis Louie's newest solo show, Strange Discoveries, at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles. We are going to give it to you straight. You Louie's work on the web, as many of us do, and you think, "That has to be digital." On the contrary, you see Louie's work in person, and you can't believe all the works are created by hand, by a very gifted, imaginative artist who has created his own universe of characters... beautiful, inspiring work. Go see it.

Brainworkers Need Tough Bags

Design // Friday, November 15, 2013
We've been following Freitag for a while now and we can't help all gather around a computer to watch their latest installments of video. Their newest videos explore the toughness of their bags, don't think Billy Mays infomercial though, think Sofia Coppola or Wes Anderson. The videos feature the F302 ROY bag, which they explain as a mobile high-security open-plan office with a removable laptop inner bag. Right on par with their unique sensibility and innovative style, Freitag does it again with these two. Watch them after the jump.
