    Everyday you are missed dearly, your beautiful artwork left to inspire us in your absence, perpetuating our sense of atlephobia. Rest easy Adam x

  • Tito Piccolo

    Just done a research on what’s the cause of death. So he ran away from a hospital then went missing, then after some days he was found dead?

    I’m really intrigued with this case. Anyone know more details about this?

  • He has that something I can’t name, the same thing Andrew Hem has. Brilliant work.

    • Oh!! i just read the comments below, So sad to lose someone so young.

  • Kevin Kwong

    Love the figures/icons that continue between his work. They string them together in a way that feels personal. Also feeling a bit of Andrew Hem/James Jean. This is my favorite of his.

“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. See more images below.
