A new set of lovely quotes all hand drawn with 0.3mm fineliner. Hopefully going to carry on with this for a while and create a lovely collection. I will also try to experiment with colour and digitalising my typography with vectors etc.
If anyone has any good quotes feel free to comment and I will upload it when I’m done 🙂
-Apologies for the watermark at the bottom, the disrespectful people of tumblr have drawn me to this! I don’t mind if people like to share my work but when my link is deleted I get angry. Support new artists people!!!
This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.
I went out and brought a cheap deck and spray painted it white the rest is all hand drawn with a sharpie. More to come I hope.
Let me know what you think.
I read in the British Journal of Photography that people are speculative about what to label Joachim Schmid but why is there always a need for a label?
He calls himself a visual artist.
For 3o years he went through archives, he found photos in flea markets and adapted them into his own projects,
“editing, interpreting and re-purposing”
I personally really like this project- Photogenic Drafts because it’s inspiring for my current assignment in the way that he presents his found photos.
“Family snaps, ID photos, strips from photo booths – all have been archived and the place and date of their discovery recorded by Schmid. And this is vital. It is the moment the artist finds them which marks their transition from personal photograph to (part of) an artwork.”
One of my favourite collage artists. He apparently associated with artists of the Beat Generation and was inspired by hippies and created surreal pictures using collage. I love his work because all the images he uses a composed perfectly as if they were meant that way. Some of the work you can find is: The Cosmic Bicycle (1971), The Hasheesh Eater (1975), The Illustrated Edgar Allan Poe (1976).
Amazing psychedelic poster artist of 60’s musicians. His eye-catching designs are still seen everywhere now, promoting the peace movement and the psychedelic era, he worked for 60’s musicians such as, Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and Van Morrison. To me, the bright colours and his use of typography is the most prominent feature of his posters.
Adam Scott Miller, another visionary artist with an amazing talent. He combines art, science and mysticism and creates breath-taking pieces of work- usually using pencils, ink and chalk pastels.
Alex Grey has recently been one of the most inspirational artists I have come across, his unique, geometric and extremely detailed portraits have opened my eyes to completely different kinds of art.
Another inspiring science-fiction (fantasy and ‘aerospace’) artist from America. He has received awards, published two books and his work is exhibited in various places.
Peter Elson is an English illustrator, his theme is science fiction. His amazing detailed work have appeared on many book covers, what attracted me to his work the most was the colour, detail and subject.
