Radness Roundup: 12 is Swell...ve!
Big-eyed beauties, major Memphis Group
Perry Shall makes visual art in all kinds of forms: collage, poster design, illustration, t-shirt archiving, even! But we've gotta do a special shout-out for his pen and ink illustrations which recall the zany style of comics from the ‘70’s--but this time, with a funnier nihilistic twist.
Ghoulish Gary (Real name: Gary Pullin) makes detailed illustrations in poster format, honoring the great monsters of yore: a standout is his movie poster-size homage to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. (RIP George Romero!)
You ever see pieces that hew so closely to an aesthetic you get the sense it could be original? Yep, yep, James White has the market cornered on ‘80 and ‘90’s futuristic pieces: Let his magenta, purple, burnt orange, key lime green and turquoise tones take you back.
Thomas Ascott makes big-eyed beauties out of uncommonly paired things: A matryoshka doll with octopus legs; an owl with only one eye; a young girl walking alone through a forest carrying only a piece of bread. Have some sour with your sweet.
Hope you loved this edition of Radness Roundup! Catch ya back here real soon for another one!
