Who to Follow
Jeremy Libman shared some lovely words about his father’s unpublished photography on the site this week. His own work is just as compelling. Father like son, etc.
Brooklyn artist Mike Perry shared this massive mural he’s been working on with the likes of Kate Moross, Mcbess and Craig and Karl. Interesting chap to follow, especially as he’s “making shit all the time."
We’re not sure if this actually true, but Kyle Platts has announced his a toy range from his popular comic strip, Vibe Consultant. To get back to the point, his feed is pretty, pretty goooood.
On first glance Grand Chamaco’s creations appear to be sickly sweet, look again and you can’t help but detect a hint of sarcasm. So worth a follow if sarcastic happiness is your thing.
If the looks of this from Lynnie Zulu fill your eyes full of joy, you’d do well to follow the artist in Instagram.
