Art Inspired Outfits

20 Jul

Delightful interpretations of popular artists’ style and color palettes in stylish and fun outfits. As a former artwear designer, I’m loving this take on clothing design. No matter the era in which the work was created, the composition is contemporary. Delicious use of color!

Muttfest 2010 Poster

12 Jul

In honor of the “Barko de Mayo” theme of the Amarillo SPCA’s 2010 fundraiser, Muttfest, I created El Barko. He was seen around town on the poster, and looked fine on the fiesta-colored tshirts, too. Most of my poster projects are for non-profit events.

Brian Dettmer: Book Autopsies

19 Dec

These sculptures were made by carving through layers of books. Love the illustrative effect, and use of the page edge color as a design element. Some have the feeling of M.C. Escher drawings. Artist: Brian Dettmer.

Leandro Castelao

Simple shapes and modern colors become elegantly simple illustrations from Argentine designer Leandro Castelao. Reminiscent of ’50s design in his use of shapes and colors at times.
