This installation put such a huge smile on my face. Japanese cult artist Yayoi Kusama did this piece called The Obliteration Room. It is a completely white room to begin with and them kids visiting the museum are handed coloured stickers to put on the piece. It then evolves into a colour explotion. Wonderful!

Here’s a little more watercolour stuff. I found Felix when I saw the book that he did on watercolours, wrote and illustrated. I’m a complete idiot with this stuff myself but I must say that looking at this book makes me wanna give it another try.

Check out this little French studio called Les Graphiquants, they’ve done some really nice posters and I just love the name, it’s so….French! ;-)

I’ve shared stuff from Norwegian studio Bleed before but they just rock so much that you need to go look again, seriously! Their website is also a treat. They caught my eye yet again with these illustrations that they did as a part of the “new” (not so new anymore) My Space identity which I think is very clever in its’ concept. And these illustrations totally nail it!

I noticed Swedish illustrator Daniel Egnéus when I saw his beautiful illustrations for Little Red Ridinghood. When I went to see more on his website I was so pleasantly surprised because he’s done even greater stuff and the website is just such a feast of goodness. It’s mostly water colours but in various different textures.

Check out Aerosyn-Lex, this guy has been ALL OVER the place and it is so great that it shows in the level of his work. I think he rocks! Even the freaking GIF animations are great! I also really enjoyed seeing a new take on exhibition design, how clever is that?!

It isn’t that often that you see clean vector art used in an original way, but by golly I think we have a live one! These portraits by Craig & Karl kicks ass. The way they’ve used the patterns is so simple, yet really effective. TOTALLY love it! Would DIE to have a self portrait like this!

I’ve recently come across Zink Magazine. I don’t like the overall design, but they are really good at using über cool photographers and I’ve really been enjoying discovering lots of great talent in that area like Genevieve Charbonneau, Justin Hyte and Neil Mota. Like!

I am totally neglecting you guys at the mo, the reason is that I am preparing my very first exhibition and it’s pretty nervewrecking so head is filled. Will show you when it’s done! But for now I want to share this wonderful identity project by Mike McQuade with you. I LOVE the name, Tom, Dick & Harry, makes me laugh, and the website (which to me is always a revealing media) looks so good. Yum!

This week I’ve been whipping my poor students through some serious ornament drawing to improve their Illustrator curve skills, it is such a good exercise and it really creates respect for people who do this impeccably. Like Marian Bantjes, Jessica Hische, Sebastian Lester and Si Scott. I am loving these sourcy chicks that he did for 125 Magazine. That’s HOT!
