The Work of Cassidy Rae Limbach

Illustration // Thursday, March 14, 2013
  "Cassidy Rae Limbach is an abstract painter/ illustrator working on linen with acrylic, collage and inks. Her concerns are with rich-juicy colors, textures and surface qualities to create life-affirming visual meditations. Limbach plays with a spectrum of candy colored pastels intermingled with ornate design. She is inspired with the nature of both humans and animals alike and tends to present them in different roles. Her provocative designs are shown in a matter of poise but still remain very personal and demand attention."

Works by Steve Scott

Illustration // Thursday, March 14, 2013
London-based animation director and illustrator Steve Scott is one talented dude. Scott has a knack for clean shapes and colorful compositions, tapping into some serious retro 1960s vibes while remaining distinctly modern and fresh. He is a pixel pusher and evidently passionate about psychedelia, Sci-Fi, smoking pipes and robot pin-ups.  

Duda Lanna's Psychedelic Geometry

Illustration // Thursday, March 14, 2013
We've yet to tire of Brazilian illustrator Duda Lanna's vibrant psychedelic compositions. Eduardo Uchoa neatly summarizes the appeal of Lanna's aesthetic: "Designer of cosmic landscapes, lymphatic and meticulous shapes at the same time. Mosaics which build liquefying, galactic and outer space worlds, blending abstract and figurative. We can find hidden characters and figures within these random puzzles and assorted colour stains..."

Barf Comics

Illustration // Wednesday, March 13, 2013
  James Callahan is a writer and illustrator based on the east coast. He often goes under the less innocuous moniker, "Barf Comics." Callahan's graphics are the gnarly machinations of a bold counter-culture aesthetic. He designs snowboards, skateboards, bikes, album art, comics and just about everything else. Some clients include Mastodon, Cannabis Corpse, Marvel Comics, OBEY and Thrasher Magazine. 

Brendan Monroe's Scientific Dream-Worlds

Illustration // Wednesday, March 13, 2013
Brendan Monroe's illustrations depict nebulous, vibrating scenes of a dream-world inspired by scientific processes. His works bring to life the formless figures of a microscopic plane, inviting the viewer into vivid realms of flesh, blood and plasma that are at once strange and deeply our own. Monroe lives in Oakland with his wife Evah and his cat Jalapeño, and he is also a sculptor. He lists some of his interests as "slime, fungus, blobs, crawling sludge, the entire Universe, cats, dogs, rain, the beach, chemistry, biology, botany, food, watching paint dry, frequencies in waves of light."
