I get to work on some art for the walls of a coming-soon baby girl (my new niece!) this weekend, and I’m trying to let the work of Anna Dunn inspire me. Really great stuff! And, how excellent would it be if this was a baby’s first phrase??

Rad, Rad, RAD quilt by Jillian Tamaki called The Machines Are Alive. Nice colors and pattern, and a bunch of little critters and doo-dads climbing all over the place. I think sleeping under this would lead to some awesome, weirdo dreams.

I’m really into this print by Mark Warren Jacques. So bold. So bright. So nice! Buy it (for me, please) at MWJ Editions.
1 + 1 = 3 by Lottie Brzozowski. This book looks incredible.
A collection of Ricohgraph test prints I have been accumulating and curating for the past 8 months. Combined, they present a portrait of Studio 9, as well as demonstrate the Ricohgraph’s printing abilities.
A visual essay at the beginning of the book introduces the prints and how they act as a portrait of the past year. There is also a section on how the Ricohgraph works as well as a section on experimental overprinting which allows the book to be “observed” from several angles.
Each one of the above collages by Alana Questell serves as the artwork for different singles released by SALES (thinking I’ll post one tomorrow), but they stand alone as fantastic compositions, too. Abstract and weird, but with familiar elements and forms. They’re almost characters, but they’re not. They’re great.
