  • awesome.

  • RingingInMyHead

    These illustrations are so fun. The last one reminds me of Philip D. Eastman’s “Go, Dog, Go!” :P

  • These have such a vintage feel to them… Jim Flora-esque. Very fun and a little subversive maybe?

  • Thumbs Up!

  • Cody

    this body of work as this dr. seuss vibe to it completely.

  • It’s like a Playboy illustrator joined a biker gang!

  • Jeans

    Dr. Suess+ Neck face = Jay Howell

  • Jay Rules

    I love his work

  • Savannah

    RingingInMyHead: YES that is exactly what i was thinking. it’s a grown up version of my favorite kid’s book.

  • I was going to say Dr. Suess, but the more I look at the illustrations the more I feel that I’m correct. Definitely playful, silly, and fun! -tys

  • RingingInMyHead

    Savannah: It was one of my favorites, too. I always loved the “Do you like my hat?” part, haha.

    Maybe in this grown up version, the dogs have to pay car insurance. :]

  • I love his work!
    specially the motorcycled nude series =)

  • Jay Howell = Awesome.

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
