I’d say that the majority of collages in the world are kinda crappy, and made by kids in high school. But then you get someone like Agnes Montgomery, who takes this simple act and turns it into the raddest thing ever. Most of you probably know her work from the cover of Panda Bears album, Person Pitch, but the rest of her work is just as good, if not better than that. Totally beautiful.
Check out the beautifully trippy photos of Neil Krug.. Neil lives in Kansas, taking photos of naked ladies, hippy dudes and beautiful landscapes. He gets these really gorgeous effects to his photos by using expired polaroids, which make them let amazing.
Neil also recently did a mini-interview with Fecal Face, which you can read here.
I got an email from the extremely talented David Huyck last week letting me know that he started a new project called The Cloudy Collection featuring beautiful letterpress prints. There are 7 prints total, with contributions by Meg Hunt, Bill Fick, John Martz, Amy Crehore, Tom Kaczynski, Steven Weissman, and David Huyck. David also went out of his way to make sure that these are environmentally sound, as the prints are made on 4 x 6″ ivory-colored bamboo paper using 100% vegetable-based inks, and printed with all wind-power by Boxcar Press.
The series of 7 are only $35, plus there’s free shipping to the U.S. and Canada. A portion of the sales are also going to the Nature Conservancy. Basically this is the most awesome little print project I’ve seen in a while. He should have another set in a few months,and I’m sure I’ll post about them then.
Hey all, Wednesday is here already. I’ve been sleepy all day, so I’m just getting to these awesome wallpapers, my apologies. This week’s desktop comes from the amazingly talented Jeffrey Bowman, an illustrator from London who’s definitely starting to blow up. He’s done work for Converse and Computer Arts, as well as being one half of the creative team over at The Wizard’s Hat. He’s also just recently updated his portfolio, so check that out as well.
For the DWP this week he’s created two wonderful wallpapers. The first is an explosion of shapes and colors, perfect for jazzing up a dark and lonely desktop. The second is nature-y looking collage of wooden logs and cloudy skies all presented in a cool-ish color palette.
I hope you all enjoy these pair, check back next week for more goodness!
