    Megan Herwig is a graduate of the Montserrat College of Art, in addition to receiving a Master’s in Fine Art from the School of the Museum Fine Arts in Boston. I recently came upon her work on Buy Some Damn Art. Her magnificent buildings are made from various materials layered on top of screen prints. She uses paper, tape and fabric to build these architectural wonders.

    The work of Valerie Hammond is so delicate and lovely and shrouded in mystery. I especially love her sculpture work, it reminds me so much of the earlier sculpture work of artist Petah Coyne. Valerie draws from her great fascination and mystery of ancient religious visuals from Tibetan medical drawings to Buddhist sculptures; working across various mediums from painting to printmaking to photography.

    Hollis Brown Thornton plays with memory and time by fragmenting nostalgic imagery. Hollis uses acrylic paints, markers and photo transfer to control the amount of visibility and degradation within each image, playing with how pop culture, world events and outdated technologies languish as time moves forward and memory fades.

    During an artist’s residency on board a sailboat near the Arctic Circle, Canadian artist Sarah Anne Johnson captures these alluring images of the surrounding landscape. In the series Arctic Wonderland, the landscapes are transformed further into surrealism through the subtle application of pigment by using techniques ranging from painting with acrylics and india ink to photoshop and screen-printing.

    untitledlandscape_tchmoThe Landscape series from tchmo is so visually stunning; packed with vibrant colors melting into one another and overlapping scenery degrading/transforming into surreal landscapes.

  6. Artist: V A Graham

    I was playing Sonic the Hedgehog recently and the graphics were terribly ancient looking yet so nostalgic.  The work of Veronica Graham utilizes video game graphics to create wonderfully detail maps depicting various landscapes and territories. 


  7. Artist: Andy Gilmore

    Over at The Ghostly Store, you’ll find an array of manly tech gear to vinyls to Andy Gilmore. His prints are kaleidoscopic masterpieces in which the shapes grow infinitely smaller and smaller over a bed of soft and saturated hues; all creating an atmosphere that parallels astronomical forces in the grandest scale.  


  8. Artist: Sanya Glisic

    July 26, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Sanya Glisic is an illustrator and printer located in Chicago, who cleverly creates dynamic imagery with the use of a few colors (combing muted and saturated) underneath lines varying in thickness and depth.  I first fell in love with Sanya’s work through her zodiac series being sold through her Etsy shop Horsedrawn Carriage.  Jason and I own the two screenprints shown above; I find myself getting lost in the details, studying the fine line work in awe.

    Sanya’s illustrations perfectly marry the foul and eerie feeling behind the cautionary tales in the 19th century German publication of Struwwelpeter.  In 2010 she reprinted the tales alongside the illustrations inspired by them in her own artist book.
