Browsing through FFFFOUND! the other day I came across the work of Barbados based illustrator Barnaby Ward, who goes by the artsy name of somefield.. I was immediately drawn to his work, sort of a sketchy Ashley Wood style but with a bit of an anime twist. His color choices are pretty brilliant as well, his work pops even more because of his palette choices. He recently came out with a graphic novel as well titled Sixteen Miles to Merricks and Other Works which I highly suggest everyone look into. It’s over 200 pages of illustrative goodness.
I’ve put a couple more pieces under the cut, so be sure to check those out, then pay a proper visit to his site after that.

I can’t remember where I came across this print by Mareike Auer, but I really love it for it’s simplicity (and the fox, duh). It’s called The Story About Me and the Fox, and comes in 4 sizes and are all signed and dated. I think this would look awesome in a bathroom or a kitchen, something quirky to spice an area up. Can anyone say holiday gift?
I’ve really been enjoying the work of Canadian illustrator/designer Jared Nickerson today. He’s got this style that kind of reminds me of a mix between Friends With You and Genevieve Gauckler, lots of bold shapes and fun critters. The piece above is titled Comfy Coma, and I love the stark black and white with the old timey background. Most of his work is a lot more brightly colored, but I’m really digging this one a lot. Be sure to check out the rest of his stuff, he’s got a lot of it!
“Old-timey” is one of my favorite ways to describe things lately, and that’s how I’d describe some of Patrick Leger’s artwork. Patrick has been studying fine art since 2003, and now currently lives in North Carolina where he’s busting out some really awesome, really graphic pieces. My two favroites are above, which look like they came right out of a comic book from the 60′s. Check out the rest of his art on his site by clicking here, and pick up a print or two of his work by clicking here.
Crailtap recently put up a list of Neck Face’s Top 5′s, a list compromised of odd little details like his ‘Top 5 Movies’ (Braveheart being his #1, wtf) and ‘Top 5 ways to bum out chicks’ (puke on them). My favorite on the list though is under the ‘Top 5 things to spend 5 bucks on’, where he gives a shout to my favorite taco truck in Los Angeles, “Three tacos and a drink at Taco Zone in Silverlake.” Clearly Neck Face knows his shit. Check out the rest of the list, it’s a fun read.
