'Prayer Hands' & 'Let's Touch' New Print Series by Hannah Stouffer

Illustration // Monday, September 29, 2014

I set out to research, write and then inevitably create, on the topics of determinism, synchronicity, the fundamental nature of existence and their connection to the creative landscape'...

Luca Barcelona: Take Your Pleasure Seriously

Illustration // Monday, September 29, 2014
As an art form, calligraphy can be defined as the communication of beauty through lettering, a creative articulation of writing that takes both expressivity and skill. Modern calligraphic work ranges from utilitarian hand-lettered inscriptions to pieces of fine art, where the handwritten mark might interfere with its own legibility or compliment the functionality of its letters. Luca Barcelona holds a dedication to this craft, reinventing letterforms with his signature style while honoring and incorporating a classical basis of hand-rendered traditions...

His work is deliberate in perspective and its total lack of detail...

Boneface 2014

Illustration // Friday, September 26, 2014
Out of the 90's came a time where comics were rich and unabashedly bold, where we could crimp the hair of our Furbees while listening to Spice World and sorting our Pokemon cards. It was out of this generation that the artist Boneface evolved- a product of this slime-induced, comic-book culture, both embracing and rebelling against all of it with an angsty infatuation...
