Artist Spotlight: Dave Bowers

A selection of recent work by Los Angeles-based illustrator Dave Bowers, a.k.a. Oldsweaty. Focused on primary colors, psychedelic beings, and spatial relationships, Bowers’ illustrations draw inspiration from nature, 70s Japanese poster design, and mid century paperback covers. Someone recently asked him how he would describe his work. “I never have a good response to these kinds of things, so I posed the question back to them,” he explains. “They said ‘playground energy.’ So I’ll go with that.”
