Today I’d like to feature an artists that I have not done much work with in the past, but hope to in the future. JP Neang is an amazingly talented artists that works in an abstract style, primarily with with graphite and pastels along with various other mediums, that has worked as both an artist and as co-curator of large scale art projects across parts of northern California.
This time I’ll be featuring another artist I have worked with that has a very well developed style. Sherwin “Shwin” Rosario pumps the most content into the tiniest amount of space that I have seen. Taking markers and thin brushes to the canvas, he uses thin lines to cram simple characters and imagery into a much larger, complex overall piece.
Toady I’d like to take a look at a talented artist who I’ve had the honor of working with in the past on several project. JR ‘Dyno’ Ignacio has become a local celebrity in the Solano county area and beyond in the urban culture for his clothing line that he designs, paints, and silk screens all on his own. Along with orignal concepts, he stays conscious of the media and pop culture by creating designs that reference subjects such as movies and sports.
A website I find myself often frequenting for finding interesting reads and really cool stuff is Design-Milk. This nifty web magazine features many different examples of design. You can get a pretty good feel of what’s going on in the design world by paying attention to this website and browsing around their style and fashion, art, architecture, home furniture, or any one of their other categories that you can find on their site. They also have several regular editorial columns that I have always found to be worth the read.
I for one keep up to date on by following the Design-Milk twitter, but you can also like them on Facebook, pin them on your Pinterest, and even sign up for a newsletter. Link to all those can be found on their site, which is now featured on the side bar of the EB Spot!
P.S. For all you dog lovers out there they even have a sister site dedicated to modern dog design! Check that one out over at Dog-Milk.
