i’m jealous of able parris




No no, art.

Wait, maybe design.

Ok, I can’t decide. Either way, I love these mixed media pieces by Able Parris. You know what else I love? How much he loves his wife Julia Parris. She’s a photographer who he links to from his site, at least twice, with a caption reading ‘check out my wife’s photography. She’s awesome!’  Able Parris… fantastic artist/loving & supportive husband.

i’m jealous of mark weaver


Sweet Jiminy. {I kid you not, those are truly the two words that popped into my head when I found this work.}

I’ve created a little time line of amazing-ness out of Mark Weaver’s illustrations for you. I’ve started in The Beginning and worked my way through to 1978. I’m not sure what happens after that, but I’m not too worried about it… probably just a whole bunch of other very cool stuff.

i’m jealous of heath yenna


I have always been a huge fan of Pop Art, probably because it combines the two things I love most… art & design. This work by Heath Yenna has definitely got my jealousy juices flowing on this fine Friday morning. They are a little vintage, a little Pop, a touch of modern graphic design and just a hint of street graffiti. Mmmm, a perfect mix.

i’m jealous of christian northeast


I must have beef on the brain, much like the guy in the image above. After my last post featuring Ilana Kohn’s steaks I ended up finding these pieces by Christian Northeast. I found the top most image first, and then as I made my way through Christian’s portfolio I found the other two. I thought they told quite a nice little story when shown together… and now I’m hungry, but also slightly grossed out. Maybe I’ll just have an apple.
