Bless me Blogosphere for I have sinned. It’s been 1 year 1 week and 6 days since my last post. You will have gone elsewhere for your daily kick of inspiration by now, and this blog might be a digital desert. But I shall try to resuscitate it and lure you back nevertheless. I’m gonna use the cheapest trick in the book for that: naked ladies! But not just any naked ladies (this is a respectable blog you know!) the naked ladies of the amazing American artist Mel Ramos. I just love the way he comments on commercial culture, consumerism, branding and the fact that sex sells in his work. Or maybe he’s just a dirty old man? Either way I’m a BIG fan :-)

Look at the these wonderful illustrations by Nick Lu. He also does wonderful lettering but I’m so in love with his illustrations. Some of them are rough naive shapes with lots of texture and others are very detailed with loads of colour. I am loving the versatility!

Chances are if you’ve been in an H&M sometime in the last couple of years you’ve seen the work by illustrator Lovisa Burfitt but maybe you didn’t know who she was so I want to pay her proper credit cause I LOVE her work. The illustrations are so rough around the edges but still super beautiful and feminine. I love that contrast! The difference in strokes and textures make these work so well.

I am WAYYYYY behind on posting. But still here! Just working super hard. But hey! It’s time for the weekend and what’s more party friday than confetti? Ohh how I’d wish this place was in Copenhagen. I think I might have to book an extra seat coming back from NYC when I go in September for one of those pinatas.

The paintings by Sam Weber kinda creep me out but I’m also totally in awe. His technique for creating these freezing cold pieces is just astounding!

I only just came across Swedish illustrator Martin Nicolausson but totally love his work. It is so detailed but still full of live and movement. I’m also very happy to see the mixture in textures.

When was the last time you saw a black light used in a cool way? (and NOT to reveal body fluids in TV crime shows) Well here’s one! The paintings by Japanese artist Houxo Que work best when seen in the dark. The colours are just amazing and the contrast between the delicate motifes and the runny vibrant colours is just ACE!

Glitch art is a true love of mine. The reason is that I think it lends texture to the digital media which is otherwise hard to get/create. Just look at the work by Kim Asendorf, so full of energy and life in all its imperfection.

Oh dread oh horror! I forgot to wish you all a Happy Valentine yesterday! How rude of me! Here’s a few cutesy hearts from Darling Clementine to make up for it. Totally love it. I know it’s kinda sweet for my taste but I still think it’s wonderful.

I came across Skip Sterling’s illustration work totally by chance and was so happy. The use of soft warm colours coupled with strong bold imagery is super convincing. The juxtaposition almost creeps me out a little bit and I LIKE IT!!
