I don’t know what you associate with Kentucky (the derby? chicken?) but from now on, you must only associate this American state with illustrator Jordan Speer. Jordan is currently driving a band around America on their tour, but in his spare time manages to create these wonderful images of…well, we’re not sure what they’re of. Toys? Toys from Jordan’s imagination? Who knows.
Jordan’s done a hell of a lot of work over the years, most of which you can see here, here and here. Inspired by Sci-Fi and comic books, Jordan’s obviously a fan of anything not-of-this-earth, and the colour orange – which crops up in nearly all of his images. We love you, Jordan, keep up the great work!
