Scott Hansen is one of my favorite designers right now. His work is super fresh, yet an ode to vintage aesthetic, without ever being over the top or corny. Check out his daily musings and peep some of his amazing prints which are for sale.
One of my favorite finds this year was when I discovered Carolyn Sewell’s sketchbooks. Sewell’s sketches mix free-hand typography, playful doodling, and subtle pop culture references all into one dope page turner. I can dig it.
This work left me amazed. I originally caught wind of this here. Sandy Noble created these artworks by using a Polargraph, which is a pen attached to a string that is run by two motors. Love it.
Artist Matt W. Moore recently ran an exhibit in Cincinnati showing off his very dope vector like canvas paintings. What’s really ill to me is that the medium used here is spray paint, and you get to see him at work doing an entire wall in this style. Really clean, really fresh.
I have been a fan of ESPO, aka Steve Powers, for a while now. There’s something about the mix of street art, typography, and kind of Emo messages that gets me every time. Haha. I actually named my mixtape, Never Say Never, after being inspired by this piece. At the time, it was just was fitting to what was going on around me.
I originally caught wind of these photos on amazing artist/designer Scott Hansen’s blog. These photos, taken by Danny Lyon in Brooklyn in 1974, have such a gritty, yet nostalgic feel to them. As a native New Yorker, any New York history pieces leave me curious. Great finds. [Musician Outasight is writing guest posts for Lost at E Minor]
