Nathalie Lété’s Busy Paintings Make Great Illustrated Products

See that spot­ted dog in the paint­ing above? I love ‘em. And hon­estly, it’s the first thing I noticed when look­ing at Nathalie Lété’s work… like I have some sort of 6th sense for that type of thing. Her paint­ings are full of quirky objects  set against pat­terned back­grounds. They are busy, but so much […]

The Visually Dizzying Works of Husmann/Tschaeni

I don’t know how best to describe these works (are they paint­ings? par­tially pho­tographs?) by Husmann/Tschaeni, so I’ll just let them speak for them­selves.

Kris Chau’s Lyrical Lines and Ethereal Sketches

I was first intro­duced to Kris Chau’s work when I was in under­grad. She was a guest pro­fes­sor for a “lifestyle” illus­tra­tion class I was tak­ing, and I fell in love with her way of draw­ing.

Anna Valdez’s Painted Interiors Make Me Wish They Were My House

I first saw the work of Anna Valdez over on Boooooooom, and I can’t seem to get them out of my head. The metic­u­lous detail, mash up of pat­terns, tex­tures, and plants that inhab­i­tant her inte­rior spaces are a delight to view. Boy, do I wish I had that col­lec­tion of rugs and plates…  

Andre Levy’s “Tales You Lose” Paints “Adventure Time” on a Coin

Coins are pretty neat look­ing, if you ask me; I love all of their lit­tle idio­syn­crasies. German-based designer Andre Levy has painted smat­ter­ing of cur­ren­cies in his series Tales You Lose (clever title!). He doesn’t just col­orize the por­traits already on coins, but paints fig­ures in pop­u­lar cul­ture on these small objects. More about his series: […]
