Nobrow is a small publishing company based in the UK. They produce limited runs of magazines, books, and other design and illustrative goodness that I hope to get my grubby little hands on one day. If you or someone you know would like to aid in that process, these prints would look great in my possession! Just sayin'... Here's how they stay on top:
"Our aim is to place a renewed focus on quality in print, using wherever possible the best materials we can get our hands on and always trying to play with format, color, size and design to ensure that our publications are well conceived and individual. We work closely with locally based printers wherever possible so that we can be involved in the creative process from start to finish and we always try to achieve finished products that are not only filled with great work, but that themselves are art objects, to be coveted, collected and cherished."
Also check out their small press, filled with all things screenprinted. These would make great Christmas gifts!

Rohit Iyer

Holey Cow
Bird Flip

Rohit Iyer's work is quirky, clever, and fun. I'm always charmed by simple styles that are able to carry such an enormous amount of wit. My favorite is "88." View more work at his blog: here.

Face-melting Guitar Solo

Face-melting Guitar SoloHere's a sketch I made for Wooden Toy Quarterly's music edition. Unfortunately, I decided not to submit it for review when I realized I couldn't decide on how to color it. Oh well. Drawing is always fun.

Bananas are trouble.

Type One-offs
Lately I've been getting into custom type and exploring letterforms. These are the first of my now many type sketches. Yeah, not that impressive, but just wait until you see where I go from here! When drawing letters, as in most areas of my life, it's hard breaking out of my comfort zone. With these little sketches, there's no pressure. Unfortunately, I tend to draw the same curves or use the same line quality in a lot of them. I should probably use a different medium than pen or pencil just to free up my strokes a bit. My fear of failure and imperfection, however, holds me back. Wow. The biggest problems of my life drastically affect the art I create. I want my art to be its own entity and breathe its own life, not be tainted with my shortcomings. Is it possible to make a more conscious effort to control subconscious thoughts?

Beautiful sky tonight. Admiring it while listening to Mogwai's "Friend of the Night" is near perfection. This photo does not do it justice by any means. It's times like these that make me realize I desperately need a new camera.
