Artist/illustrator Jason Edmiston explores some of the most iconic eyes in pop culture in his latest exhibition, Eyes Without A Face. The show will be up at Mondo Gallery until April 4th. If you’re in the Austin area I’d check it out for sure.

Good Goods: Sugar and Rice





We first saw Sugar and Rice at the MFAH bookstore, and we purchased it on design alone. It wasn’t until later that we realized what a great read it was. It’s an independent magazine devoted to the food and culture that can be found on the Gulf Coast. Great content and beautiful design. You can find retailers/purchase this issue on Sugar and Rice. The design team behind the publication is an office located in Houston called Always Creative. They do great work.

Josh Cochran is a Brooklyn based illustrator and teacher at the School of Visual Arts in New York. He also fills in as an art director for the New York Times Op-Ed page on occasion. Josh’s first children’s book, Inside and Out: New York, was published this past September by Big Picture Press. It looks pretty amazing.

Curiosities: Harriet Lee-Merrion







Harriet Lee-Merrion’s illustrations are made up of beautifully simple line work, some drastic angles, and a distinct color palate. She is part of a group of illustrators in Falmouth, Beginning, Middle and End Collective, who’s three frame story books are intriguing. A fairly recent graduate, Harriet is definitely an artist to watch. I can’t wait to see what more she has to offer. Some prints are available in her shop, here.

Design Curiosities: Nicolas Sassoon

Nicolas Sassoon is a French artist and designer currently working between Biarritz and Vancouver. He is making some of the most impressive and inspired animated GIFs I’ve ever seen. While the majority of his work can be found online, he does produce sculpture, prints, textiles, and site-specific installations. In addition to this work and his various collaborative efforts, Nicolas is also the founder of W-A-L-L-P-A-P-E-R-S, and a member of the online collective, Computers Club.

I did have to resize these images, I highly recommend viewing them at full size. It really is necessary. There is a lot of this kind of design going around, but Nicolas’s work really stands out.
