Over the past few years I have been lucky enough to cross paths and become friends with some people who I consider to be some of the Gold Coast’s most talented designers, artists and arts workers. As well as friends, these people are constant sources of inspiration and motivation; they are mentors.
Below are a just few of these people who you should totally check out. I’m sure I’ve missed some really important people so stay tuned for another post like this shortly…
Josh ‘Kid 9′ Thorsen – illustrator, designer, sneaker freaker
Dominique Falla – tactile typographer, illustrator, moulder of young minds
Andrew Suggit – art director, designer, artist, weatherman
Claudio Kirac – art director, photographer, designer, artist
Shida – artist, muralist, artist, artist!
Brandon Els – designer, artist, photographer, magazine publisher
Kiel Tillman – designer, artist, art director, new father
Mariam Arcilla – artist, curator, arts worker, total badass
This has got to be one of the funniest blogs I have seen in a while. I’m sure all designers can relate to at least one of these .gifs haha - http://thisadvertisinglife.tumblr.com/
I’m super excited to be a part of the Kiss Cut sticker exhibition opening at Comb Gallery in just over a months time. There are some seriously talented people taking part in the show so get on down and get sticky with it.
My stickers are currently at the printers and are based on some of the most hardcore, thug raps ever…will post some sneak peaks when they arrive…
I displayed three of my own pieces in the recent FWS White Wash exhibition, held during Bleach* Festival, 2012.
‘The Tide is High’
‘The Coast is Clear’
‘Ride the Wave’
