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.

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.
