spam art part four.

{inspiration: yulia brodskaya}

so, her work has been everywhere recently, but i had to post about it because i can't get over how beautiful it is. yulia's paper cuts make we want to grab my scissors and some old school construction paper.

{spart :: 1 of 5}

i have been getting a lot of spam lately, and after all of the viagra offers some of the text is actually pretty interesting. so i thought i would re-interpret it. this is the first in a series of five. (spam + art = spart, very clever, i know)

{inspiration: cursive design}

ah, work has been so crazy this week, i have worked many long hours and haven't had any time to post. but looking at cursive design's work makes me relax a bit. i love how sarah combines materials and the delicate nature of her work. i was able to see her work and meet her in person at art vs. craft this past weekend, which was amazing. the talent there was overwhelming.

{all wrapped up}

its very easy to get wrapped up in the little things and sometimes i just need a friendly reminder to look at the big picture...also, i'm a huge fan of all things herb lubalin, hence the avant garde.

{inspiration: klim type foundry}

i am loving klim type foundry. my favorite typeface is serrano. i also love that he has a section dedicated to his sketchbooks. not only that, but there is a section titled why type? which he answers with a simple (and beautifully hand drawn) love. not only is the type beautiful, but his website showcases everything wonderfully.
