Instagram Takeover: Gemma O’Brien

gemmaobrieninstagram

This week the @Booooooom Instagram is being handed over to Sydney-based typographer Gemma O’Brien. Normally I’d put the person’s name over top of the intro image with a font but it would be an injustice to do so here as the beauty of Gemma’s work is that it is hand-lettered.

She recently had a brilliant solo show which featured her illustrations on barf bags called “You Make Me Sick”. Her job this week is to have fun and inspire you and I’m sure she will do lots of both. Please give her a warm welcome.

“Happy Breakfast” is a psychedelic zine by set designer and artist Gary Card. Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International. See more images below.
