Only 5 days left to get involved in American Illustrator Ryan Andrew’s Kickstarter for his new book ‘Nothing is Forgotten, a collection of short stories’. If he manages to raise $30,000 by the 1st of August he’ll be adding his new short story ‘The Tunnel’, three page preview here. You can see his prints below which he’s made for all the kickstarter supporters and a few images of what the hard back copy will look like. I’ve done my bit now it’s your turn.
The very talented Ryan Andrews is running a Kickstarter to raise funds for publishing a collection of his illustrated short stories ‘Nothing is Forgotten‘, ‘Sarah and the Seed‘ and ‘Our Blood Stained Roof‘. The images of the book look amazing; with its French Folds and Sewn Binding. I’m really looking forward to getting mine in the post. Ryan has already reached his target amount but if you’re looking to pick up an original drawing or print this is a good way of going about it. You can find our previous post about Ryan Andrews here.
Colourful work from English art director, typographer, graphic artist and writer Rob Lowe aka Supermundane. Rob is the creative director of the quarterly alternative children’s magazine Anorak, watch the video below to see a sample from one of the issues.
“His graphic art, which depicts a world of intermingling shapes and expressionless life displaying hope, melancholy and beauty.”
You can find Rob Lowe’s commercial graphic design work and more personal work on his site below, also you can read his weekly poetry on his tumblr here.
Great illustrations from California and Japan based Artist Ryan Andrews. Ryan Andrews works with ink, watercolour and a bit of Photoshop to create his dark and moody comics and illustrations.
Ryan has a very insightful entry in his blog about the process he uses to create his work here. I really recommend that you check out his comics / graphic silent short-stories ‘Nothing is Forgotten‘ and his new story ‘Sarah and the Seed’. You can find even more work on Ryan’s blog.
Cheers to Feargal for showing me Ryan’s work.
Calligraphic paintings and concrete sculptures from Cuban raised, Miami born, New York based Artist / historical transcriber / visual raconteur José Parlá.
“Parlá concentrates on the problems inherent in the change of context from the street to the galleries that few of the old school writers had successfully negotiated. A notable exception is, of course, SAMO, who later painted under his given name, Jean-Michel Basquiat. Parlá’s work takes off from and expands on these roots.” Joan Waltemath, Brooklyn Rail
An interview with José Parlá and Ann Binlot from The New York Times is available here and another from The Block Magazine here.
“I’m interested in bringing the energy of the city inside the gallery,” José Parlá
