    One of my all time favourite artists. Her line work is direct and to the point in physicality but meanders around the subject. Amazing.

    Grotesque! these remind me a lot of my own work, these are far more subtle and delicate than my own, they manage to get across a sense of grotesqueness without being gory or disgusting.

    Fantastic! This is like old German Expressionism with a way sparer and more elastic vibe. Great stuff, thanks Jeff

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!

Artist Spotlight: Cleon Peterson


The violent, mesmerizing, and brutally honest work of artist Cleon Peterson. In some paintings demon-like characters are attacking people, in other paintings similar actions are being carried out by uniformed figures. What is perhaps most disturbing is the realisation that we are drawn to such darkness; titillating news headlines, and bloody movies. The violence is inside of us all. More images below.

Artist Spotlight: Michael Dandley


Striking and thoughtful series of gouache and ink works by Newmarket, New Hampshire-based artist Michael Dandley. “Side Effects” is concerned with the disturbing and ultimately incompatible ways lands and oceans are changed to accommodate our modern conveniences. More images below!
