I love getting art swag!
One of the unforeseen benefits of being an artist and (more importantly) knowing other artists is giving and receiving art swag. I’ve been doing a bit of trading lately. Here’s my haul so far:
I got this magnificent unit of art from Jesse Treece in exchange for some design software which was illicitly procured by yours truly. Most of you probably already follow his tumblr, but if you don’t — fuck you until you do. Click the link and hit the follow button unless you hate art. (you don’t - hate - art… do you?)
I also got a bunch of prints of collages done by my former illustration teacher Lynn Pauley in exchange for some letters of recommendation I wrote on her behalf. This picture doesn’t do them justice (I was trying to get a decent shot with my shitty camera without any glare from the studio lights) so click on that link and check out her shit. Her collages are awesome - very dada but… ya know - less subliminal angst.
Also, I’d like it to be known that I am not angry in these pictures. I always look this way. This is what a prominent brow-ridge and lack of expressive eyebrow control will get you.
To recap. Click links. Check out some shit. It’s a good day to artpeep.
