Ian Francis

I’ve been meaning to post about Ian Francis for awhile. He draws, paints, collages, paints again, draws some more, you get the idea. I was largely inspired by his work a couple years ago when I found myself designing lots of music packaging (my work holds a candle to Francis’ work).

David Potes

I touched base with photographer David Potes this week. Dave and his brother Ray are the guys behind Hamburger Eyes, everybody’s favourite black & white street photo zine. Hamburger Eyes and FecalFace were huge inspirations for me in starting this site, so it was really cool to connect with him.

Greg Lamarche

Not too long ago Zoo York ran a little viral campaign with a box full of spray-painted cockroaches. They just revealed the Cockroach Artist Series boards that accompany the campaign, and they’re some of the better board graphics I’ve seen in a long time. This is mainly due to the fact that I am a big fan of Greg Lamarche! I love his hand-lettered signs.

Amy Stein

“Domesticated” is a brilliant series by photographer Amy Stein. If the photos look a little unnatrual to you it’s for good reason, most of the animals are stuffed (rented from a local taxidermist)! Stein is interested in the transition between wild and domesticated and she constructs moments where one encounters the other. The series comes out of her fascination with hunting culture and our desire to domesticate wild things by taming them or killing and stuffing them.

Rene Almanza

Fantastic drawings by Rene Almanza. I really like the cross-hatching style he introduces and the looseness of his line work is masterful. There is such a fluidity and energy to it all – I would love to see him draw live.

Josef Hoflehner

Fabulous black and white photography by Josef Hoflehner. I’d love to have my passport stamped half as many times as Mr. Hoflehner. This first photo is from Hawaii (where I’ll be in September!) I’ll let you try to guess the rest…
