The Wonderfully Bizarre Illustrations of Ted Parker

Illustration // Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Beer-chuggin' dolphins and picnicking lions are apparently just a normal day at the office for illustrator Ted Parker. With thick, painterly slabs of color and totally bizarre scenes, his illustrations immediately come across as silly, outlandish and clever. Which is good, because otherwise they'd seem kind of creepy...

Texting with Jenni Sparks

Illustration // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
London-based Jenni Sparks grew up in a somewhat tacky seaside town, and looking back now, sees all the inspiration she drew from that kind of environment - from dinky arcade machines to the general public's hatred for seagulls to saveloys (the English equivalent of a hotdog). Jenni's fierce love for hand-drawn type is evident, and her textually based illustrations are bold, whimsical and full of pop culture references.

Illustration // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
"Garden Party," SF-based artist Casey Gray's newest show at White Walls Gallery feels a bit like what the 17th Century painting gallery of The Louvre might look like on acid. We've got a review and the pictures to prove it. . .
