There’s a special place in my heart reserved for Alexander Medel Calderón’s illustrations – a place furnished with inflatable chairs filled with tiny polystyrene balls and purple lava lamps, like any self-respecting child of the 90s’ bedroom was. His bold illustration echoes Microsoft WordArt of yesteryear, except slightly more debased; imagine if the Word paperclip got drunk and smoked a bunch of weed with the Microsoft window and it all descended into a big, filthy, fun mess of primary colours. Since we last checked in he’s topped up his portfolio with a bunch more design-cum-illustration and designed some clothing with his trademark faces for Lazy Oaf’s impressive stand at Pick Me Up earlier this year.
