Design Illustration


August 17, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Almasty is a design studio out of Paris comprised of Anna Apter and Charles Bataillie. I’m really enjoying their illustration work, especially from the two projects above, one from a self-initiated project called Rumeurs and the other for Trois Couleurs magazine on behalf of design firm MK2. The Paul is Dead gif is simply brilliant.

Matthew Shlian: The Tessellation Series

July 26, 2011

Paper artist Matthew Shlian has just released this wonderful series of paper works called The Tessellation Series available over at the Ghostly Store. According to the site the project began earlier this year as an exploration of basic geometry inspired by electronic music. He writes:

In my studio I am a collaborator, explorer and inventor. I begin with a system of folding and at a particular moment the material takes over. Guided by wonder, my work is made because I cannot visualize its final realization; in this way I come to understanding through curiosity.

Shlian is an MFA graduate of Cranbrook Academy and divides his time between teaching at the University of Michigan and “mocking up new-fangled packaging options for billion dollar blue-chips, and creating some of the most inspiring paper art around.” I think I’d probably buy whatever this guy designs just for the packaging.

Jim Denevan etches impermanent geometric drawings into California beaches

June 16, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Jim Denevan is a surfer, a sand artist, and a self-taught chef, the man behind the traveling outdoor dining experience Outstanding in the Field. His geometric sand sculptures are made with little more than rakes and sticks and can span miles of North California beaches. The pieces take many hours to create but can often disappear much quicker as the incoming tide gently erases them from earth.




Aakash Nihalani

May 1, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Artist Aakash Nihalani uses brightly colored tape to create isometric rectangles and squares in locations around New York, and has recently started a series where he interacts with these geometric shapes to great effect. Via his web site:

For however briefly, I am trying to offer people a chance to step into a different New York than they are used to seeing, and in turn, momentarily escape from routine schedules and lives. We all need the opportunity to see the city more playfully, as a world dominated by the interplay of very basic color and shape. I try to create a new space within the existing space of our everyday world for people to enter freely, and unexpectedly ‘disconnect’ from their reality.

This paper installation of Mt. Hood by Marisa Green and Peter Bogart was on display at Portland Paper City last month, held at Disjecta Gallery. Beautiful. And they didn’t even have to put a bird on it. See also Jed Heuer’s Paper Pendleton from the same show. Photos by Laura Jennings.
