    These are great. The graphite kind of obscures what’s “original” and what’s tagged – like in the first one I’m guessing that little train tunnel in the bottom right is tagged but I guess it could be a funny little piece of decor. In the “Don Bosco” it looks like there’s a hamburger or something on the ground (bottom right again) but I don’t trust my eyes – maybe it’s a tag, maybe it’s a joke by the Koshi. Fun stuff.

    these are awesome!

  • I always thought that doors made great frames for the tags that adorn them

    I’ve been photographing tags on doors for almost 15 years. What a great project you have here drawing them.

  • Lovely work and they’re so tiny!

“Happy Breakfast” by Artist Gary Card

“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.
