James Roper is the probably the real reason I started this blog so that I could share his superior technical mastery of the paintbrush. I’ve been a fan of his Art for a number of years and his artwork really is the most energetic and hyperactively coloured spectral splurge of “acrylic on canvas” I have ever seen. When I saw that he had collaborated with ex-TDR Matt Pyke of Universal Everything and Simon Pyke of Freefarm, I knew this was an explosive match made in heaven! Bravo Mr. Roper! Bravo!

I came across this chap Matthew DiVito a while ago on the Creative Review website and I’m still enviously in love with his visuals. I’ve not felt like this since I first came across the work of TDR and most of the designers that came from there, and of course the work of Kessels Kramer.

I love the hypnotic repetition of them along with the lo-fi deliverability of the GIF animation.

PenJet

PenJet is the serendipidous result of design students Jaan Evart, Julian Hagen and Daniël Maarleveld who took part in a workshop and hacked an inkjet printer by replacing the ink cartridges with felt-tip pens and ‘fooling’ the printer into thinking the ink cartridge was full.

The result was a series of experimental images which have have an aesthetic usually associated with kids using felt-tips on rulers as guides (I was certainly guilty of this craft when I was a child). The designers had a bit of a hard time trying to get the pressure correct so that the pens wouldn’t rip through the paper and I think they’ve done a great job. This aesthetic does bring back fond memories of the Felt-Tip exhibition back in 2007.

What I really love is that they used a 12″ G4 PowerBook hooked up to the printer, you don’t see many of them these days!
