Jeff Job Hunter - Jack Teagle







As stated below, I love Jack Teagle. So I was super excited to see he has a new comic out. Mine hasn't come in the mail, but the images off the nobrow site (who, unsurprisingly, I also love) are really encouraging. You should all go BUY A COPY NOW even though the international shipping is totally bullshit expensive.
Here's a little plot synopsis from nobrow:
"Jeff thinks he is on his way to the Job Centre to pick up his monthly benefit payment when in fact he is about to embark on a quest of Ulyssean proportions. As Jeff slashes and punches his way through the red tape and bureaucracy of the Job Centre’s dungeon of terror, he approaches the terrifying Minotaur whom he must defeat to pick up his next meal ticket. Little does he know that the object of his epic quest is just a bad tempered HR manager with a paper-load the size of a Kraken and a mood to match it."

Such great work! I love her candy colors mixed with ochre browns and little cartoony inspired characters. And, she's dating Jack Teagle (see above post!), undoubtedly one of my top 5 favorite illustrators EVER, so I love her even more. Artist couples are even more adorable and awesome when both artists are as amazing as these two! See more of her work on her website or deviantart.

How freaking cute are these!!! She has a lot of nice sketchy penwork on her blog if you need a bigger dose of adorable : )

Paul Blow















CAN I JUST MARRY HIM AND HAVE KIDS AND THEY'LL HAVE A PERFECT DESIGN SENSE? But honestly, Paul Blow is one of my favorite artists right now. Such amazing color schemes, fun shapes, and clean lines, and such subtle humor in all the pieces. He is an illustration genius, and I would hang every single thing he's ever done on my wall. I don't even have the words to begin explaining all his accomplishments and extensive resume, but trust me, he's stinkin good. YES YES YES.

OOoh love this. It's so clean and simple, and of course totally stinkin adorable. Love the ornamental oval frames as well. See her website for more.

KBFA - Cool and Collected

I was lucky enough to get an internship at a fabulous gallery this summer, and I'm really excited to tell you guys about our current show! We've been working super hard all week to get the new exhibit up, and after the opening on thursday, I'm even more excited about the work featured. The show is called "Cool and Collected," and it features works from artists living in Brooklyn between the ages of 18 and 33. All of the artists are really wonderful, but here's just a few of my favorites from the 27 images featured in the show.

I'll definitely do some follow up features on some of these guys in the future - they're all really cool people, and hopefully I can see some of their studios or learn more about their work before I give away too much (the 3D like wood piece is actually done by a graduate of my high school, Scott Goodman.) Pleease go on our gallery website to see the rest of the works, and if you're nearby, definitely check the gallery out for yourself.

Ernest Concepcion (amazing artist and hilarious person all around - gotta love anyone who appreciates starcraft as much as I do)


Rebecca Simon (gave me a silly band at the opening Y)

Mark Traughber







Really great work. I always love when people make such good use of mixed media instead of just sticking some paint and crayon on wood and calling it such. The encaustic on wood and collage are super cool, and I love love love the big 22 x 30 pieces on the layers of transparent paper - gives them such a nice texture and depth. I saw that Mark was also the featured artist at the Ann Arbor original art fair this month, so bravo to him for that as well! Visit his site for more work, or his etsy to see what he has for sale.
