Here’s a bit of photography from German photographer Ivo Mayr. I just love this series, makes me think of Spiderman somehow. Hmmm….random!

Check out New Zealand studio Inhouse. I have long been using their identity for Caravan in my class and it’s about time I show them here. They do contrastful compositions very well with use of few colours and well chosen fonts. Yum!

I came across this series of posters done by Korean design duo Sulki Choi and Min Choi. They were done for an art festival and I just love how the simple fold is used to intergrate the text and give a layered effect to the posters.

I recently stumbled upon the work David Osborn and Charles Woods, two poster artists from Nevada City. I do love finding old work that inspires me and that I didn’t know already. It’s like finding a hidden treasure. At the same time it’s also a little sad cause they are not with us anymore RIP. So I thought I’d just pass them on to you guys so that more people can know their work. It’s the perfect colourful pick-me-up for a grey and gloomy day in Copenhagen. Google their names for further shape and colour therapy :-)

Check out this website for hair and make-up artist Sidsel Marie Bøg done by Marcus Fuchs and Morten Wibrand. The website is such a joy to see, each page is a beautiful composition and there’s a lovely variation running through the site with colours and background images. The site is submitted for the FWA so if you like what you see you should go give the boys your vote.

I have COMPLETELY forgotten to blog Fie Lindholm. She used to be a students at the school where I teach (although not under my institute) and she is a wonderful illustrator. She is yet another one of those annoying brats (I’m joking, she knows I’m just jealous!) who can really draw in the classical sense, but utilises it in a modern way. I just LOVE her birds!

I have long been wanting to do some type work with organic materials, that’s why I was fascinated with these two pieces by one of my huge idols Mr. Sean Freeman. He rocks! I keep looking at these trying to find “mistakes”, you know, clues on how he did it. But it is of course PERFECT!

I have long been in love with the work by Dutch artist Ron van der Ende. His sculptures explore the 3 dimensional space with the use of scrap wood put together to form different structures. Enough said, go look instead!

The other day I realised that I have now run this blog for 4 years, I hadn’t even noticed! So I got curious and went back to check out my very first post and it was Betsy Dunlap, my fave calligrapher of all time. A lot has happened since so I thought I’d give you a little update on Betsy, cause she kicks ass!

I guess this is following the theme from last post but done digitally instead of handdrawn. I’m loving these poster compositions and I think the anatomy ones are super well done. The compositions are complex but sooooo pretty and I love that eventhough they are 100% digital they still have lots of texture.
