Mad but brilliant scribbled compositions from Devon McFarland

Posted by James Cartwright,

“What the heck is going on here!?” is almost definitely what you’re thinking right now. And you’d be right to question your eyes. Devon McFarland’s hastily-composed felt-tip and gouache mashups are pretty bizarre. At first glance (as well as second, third and fourth) it appears as though Devon’s handed some of his sketchbooks to a toddler to furiously colour in; a toddler with great taste in complementary colours and an extremely over-developed sense of humour. Whatever his actual technique may be we love the wilful exuberance of Devon’s work; the angry gnomes and aggressive pieces of fruit – and though we can’t really work out what’s going on either, we honest to God don’t care. It’s great stuff.
