Not long ago we featured a man on the site who possessed such a mighty creative power that he moved us all deeply and it was generally acknowledged around the studio that he was an illustration sensation. His name was Nathaniel Russell. At that time he was preparing for a show in Paris that some friends of ours made an arduous 16 hour bus journey to attend, and by all accounts it was a most excellent show (we feel like damned fools for not getting on that bus with them).
Last night he launched another show of new work in New York, Instant Dust, that we were similarly aggrieved not to be attending. To placate ourselves, and those of you unfortunate enough not to reside in New York, we’ve got some shots of the work on display to serve as a little reminder of exactly why we’re so keen on Mr Russell and his friendly visual world. Anyone actually living in New York be warned, this is not one to miss so get down to the Ed Varie gallery or forever regret it.
