Artists We Love: Raymond Biesinger

Raymond Biesinger is an illustrator who I ran across in WIRED magazine not too long ago and then again on the interwebs today. Raymond has a lot of editorial work on his site that includes spots for the New York Times, WIRED, NYLON, Business Week, and many others outside of the U.S. He has a great style with a lot of texture and that screen-printed look we love.

Looking for some neat prints?

A friend recently asked me if I knew of a good place to get some decently-priced art to fill the barren walls in his house. So, I sent him to the Gallery Nucleus online store. The site carries so many prints of all different types of contemporary art and illustration. Gallery Nucleus is also an actual gallery in Los Angeles and they do some really rad shows. Get them wallets out.

I just finished my custom painted YOKA vinyl for a show at Subtext in San Diego, CA. The show is Friday, July 25th, 6-10pm in conjunction with San Diego Comic Con 2008. More info to come soon and Colby is painting one but is lagging hardcore. Everyone should email him and bug him, maybe even punch him up a little so he stops sitting around doing nothing.

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. Josh and I have been pretty busy. We'll have some new stuff to show hopefully soon.

We Are All Half-Centaur: Proven!

Sites that Feed us:

Hey Jolby, where can I find some inspiration for strange designs by foreign designers to stretch my mind and my way of approaching a project?, of course. Updating daily, Manystuff catalogs links to designer portfolios around the world that always inspire us. I usually stop in to find strange grids, odd color palettes, and definitely different printing process that I might not be thinking of. Enjoy.

Apple WWDC Coverage for Monday

A lot of people know that Apple's World Wide Developers Conference is happening this Monday, June 9th. For those of you that don't, these conferences are where Steve Jobs gives his keynotes that unveil new Apple products each year (last year was the iPhone). This year's rumor is that the 3G iPhone will be revealed amongst a few other things.

If you're as antsy as we are to see the next great thing from Apple, there's a site that live blogs Steve Job's keynote and refreshes every some-odd seconds, bringing you the absolute latest from his presentation. 

For once, Mondays won't blow.

Artist We Love: The Quiet Life

The Quiet Life make some simple, yet super rad tees and more.

It's Josh's birthday on Saturday everybody. If you're in Chicago make sure to punch him in the gut and pour a drink over his head. Happy B Joshy.

So if you didn't know my wife and I moved to Chicago almost a year ago and it's been amazing but this morning for some reason I really missed some weird but meaningful things from home. Here is a short list of things that Chicago doesn't have that I am dying to have right now haha.

1. Old Fashion Donut - For some reason everyone in the mid west LOVES Dunkin Donuts and I have no idea why. They could possibly have the worst selection and flavors of donuts on the planet. All I want is a hole in the wall donut shop that you can get a dozen donuts in a pink box with the name and address stamped on the top of the box. Mr. Donut I miss oh so much. F U Dunkin Donuts

2. Tem's BBQ - If you live in San Diego, CA and have never been to Tem's BBQ then you are missing out on one of the greatest treasures that city has to offer. It's a Chinese bbq restaurant that has a whole bunch of stuff but they have one thing and one thing only you should order the bbq pork. It's like an angel giving you a hug in the form of bbq pork over rice with more bbq sauce poured on top. If I could open a Tem's BBQ here I would quit designing.

3. The Ocean - I have lived my whole life in California and always within a short drive to the beach. Don't really have the luxury of that here because the so-called Beach here doesn't smell, sound or feel anything like a beach. If anyone wants to bottle up some ocean water and send it my way I'll buy you some Tem's.

So, of course I love where I live but sometimes you need those little things that make life awesome. Have a good Tuesday oh and if you live in San Diego I hope the weather is terrible like it is here. =)

"Wolf Am I" Zine

It's finally drawn, printed, bound, and cut. This 24-page zine is a random collection of my thoughts and drawings that otherwise would not have gotten out. That "Tree-Head" illustration above is Josh's contribution to the zine. My goal is to get these into the hands of as many people as possible. Check out the full zine here and pick one up for $6 (includes shipping).

Monday Morning Bliss

Oh, Wheat Thins. You are my delicious snack. So buttery, salty, and scrumptious. You wouldn't mind if I put some deli sliced chicken on you, would you most majestic Wheat Thins? You wouldn't mind if I laid cheddar cheese onto you, would you? Mmm so wheaty.
