Javier Godoy

Erotica // Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Based in Murcia, Spain, artist Javier Godoy graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Carlos in Valencia with a degree in Fine Art. A self-professed perfectionist, Godoy is obsessed with every aspect of the art-making process from composition to finish. His tightly composed and loosely stylized images also posses a wickedly wry sense of humor (we're looking at you, pin-up wookie).

If you happen to have a floor in which you can find a way to draw or doodle upon it, may we suggest the creation of Canada-based designer, Philippe Malouin, the Ballpoint Stool. With transparent design, and the ability to draw as you scoot, your daily doings can be a creative project.

Illustration // Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Ronald Kurniawan is inspired by ideograms, syllables, letterforms, beasts and heroic landscapes, he slowly but surely continues to create a visual language where the wilderness and civilization could merge happily together.

Artist and illustrator 'Dreams of Grandeur' falls into that category, as a creative whom we know nothing about, other than that the complexity and appeal of their visual output is quite intriguing. Thank you...
