Going on a bit of a click-leads-to-click that started with Damien Hirst I ended up on the page of Other Criteria, an art publisher co-founded by Mr. Hirst. They have done a lot of really great art books with so much punch-in-the-face effect. Just look at the yummy stuff below.

Did you get all your Christmas presents yet? I didn’t, actually I’ve only just started! Don’t have to get that many though, but wrapping them, of course, takes time for someone like me, finding the right paper, the right ribbon, the right washi tape. OK I’ve just revealed that I’m a Christmas wrapping neurotic/expert. So psssst! here’s a tip. Hurry up an order the magazine Wrap, it’s a magazine about illustration but each issue has sheets of wrapping paper in it with illustrations from the people who are featured in the magazine. My presents are VERY special! ;-)

I have always been a huge fan of ceramic art. Although I have no experience doing it myself I feel so connected to the craft that goes into it and it’s such a great medium for making juxtapositions between shape, material, colour, style and so forth. Just look at the work from Japanese artist Jun Kaneko I love the running colour against the soft rounded outer shape and the hard colour blocking.

If you’re a Christmas present short for someone who loves typography and illustration, then you should check out the calendars from Swedish Team Hawaii. This would look good on MY wall at least :-)

I blogged Timothy Goodman’s work for Ace Hotel AGES ago but it’s time give the man a bit of credit again because he has done AMAZING work since. He did a great installation at the Airbnb headquaters (great use of rough materials) but what I love even more is two personal projects that he did alongside Jessica Walsh (who, by the way, is also AWESOME!). You may have heard of their experiment to date each other for 40 days and now their dating experiment has become a book that that you can get your hands on in about a months and a half. It’s looking really nice from here. Just have a look at the video below. I’m also just loving the Quotes on Shit project. It’s so simple, and yet it just makes me smile every time I see one of those handlettered quotes on a painted figure. Thanks for brightening my day to both of you :-)

The other day I posted Louise Mertens and I think it’s really great to see how some of the same ingredients can create a totally different dish, to put it metaphorically. It’s the same style of fashion photos used in these kind of compositions but the two artists have created something very different from each other. I love that fact! Here, there are some bold colours and strokes instead. Would love both on my walls!

The fashion illustrations by Belgian Louise Mertens are so yummy. I love how they are done without that many effects, but a few VERY well chosen ones. They are modern digital versions of a lot of the fashion collages we’ve seen trending the last few years. LIKE!
