I’ve been a long-time fan of Geoff McFetridge. The thinking behind his design and illustration work makes me think of Saul Steinberg, and his colors and shapes are akin to Matisse. His animation is wonderful, too.

This new collection of acrylic paintings is graphic and moody and and beautiful. I thought they were screen prints at first, and I’d certainly buy a screen print of most of these paintings, but as paintings they take on another layer or preciousness, being unique creations. If any of my Toronto friends can drop in on Cooper Cole Gallery and bask in their presence for me… well, don’t tell me, I’ll just be jealous.

Bonni Reid - “Cartes de Visite”
My dear friend Bonni Reid has a solo show opening in two days (Feb. 3) at La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles. These are some seriously gorgeous paintings. If you’re in L.A., don’t miss it! 

Having a professional career in creating Saturday morning cartoons, I wanted to break from this candy-coated world in order to depict another side of childhood, one that is much darker, haunting or just plain weird — to evoke a time before we child-proofed everything.
By utilizing old photographs of family, friends and found images, this collection portrays the alter ego that resides in all of us — the real inner child which isn’t always what we as adults want it to be. (via "Cartes de Visite" on Facebook)

I’m not sure whether to call Jesse LeDoux a designerly illustrator, or an illustrative designer, but I do know that he’s completely awesome. Seattle-ites take notice: Jesse’s LeDouxville Space pop-up store/show/gallery is happening near you! Next month!

Me just a few minutes ago:
Go to the CBR blogs.
Discover this awesome WW drawing by Jill Thompson on Robot 6.
Gasp when you read that she wants to do an OGN (Graphic Novel) with Wonder Woman and another with Superman.
FULL PAINTED, OMG.

I seriously cannot imagine a more perfect Wonder Woman. My brother and I were first introduced to Jill Thompson’s work years ago when she did a run on WW at DC and fell in love with it. We still both feel that hers is one of the only “real” Wonder Woman interpretations (certainly still one of our favourites), so it’s fitting that her vision for Diana today is even more spectacular and fabulous. 
Go show Jill some love on the Twitters! I now predict this will get reblogged about 1500 times in the next 24 hours.

Old Hotel Vancouver, a sketch by Charles Hepburn Scott circa 1929, featuring the Art Gallery steps and the second Hotel Vancouver (now the site of the Sears building). From the VAG’s 1989 Charles Hepburn Scott publication.

It was a happy surprise to stumble onto Jason Vanderhill’s Illustrated Vancouver blog. It’s pretty straightforward: he shares old illustrations, photos, and paintings about Vancouver.

Having grown up in Evanston, Ryan Kapp’s print of a typical nighttime in next-door Skokie, IL, takes me back to drives to O’Hare, trips out to Old Orchard mall, and visits to my friends’ houses in high school. We used to count these single-story homes like Sesame Street’s Count: “One Skokie bungalo! AH-ah-ah-ahhhh! Two! TWO Skokie bungaloes! AH-ah-ah-ahhhh!” [thunder and lightning!]
It turns out, Ryan has a bunch more gorgeous prints and paintings in his portfolio as well.
