Pardee's Picks: Ken GardunoJuxtapoz // Monday, 23 Dec 2013
"Amongst the thousands of Instagram accounts overstuffed with puppies hugging piglets, beautiful sunsets in third world countries and Miley Cyrus candids, one account consistently jumps out at me with every post. The owner of this outstanding account is Los Angeles illustrator Ken Garduno. In the daytime, Ken meticulously designs elegant, borderline fine-art illustrations that grace art gallery walls on a regular basis. But at night, Ken harnesses in sci-fi noir influences and creates bizarro sketches with markers and watercolors that closely resemble bits and pieces of black and white nightmares stitched together with glimpses of brightly colored fantasies. These sketchy brainstorms can only be seen on Ken's Instagram account, which, in my eyes, makes his account a lot more exciting than cats or food combined. Follow Ken's distorted imagination at @KenGarduno and on his website.
