As a lover of all things lagomorphic, I can’t help but adore the art work of Kozyndan. I was pretty excited to see this new vinyl prototype of their popular work, Uprisings (which is based on Hokusai’s The Great Wave of Kanagawa). You can purchase prints here at their shop.
…and the original…
… and some other rad Kozyndan creations
Spike Press comes out with some of my favorite band posters. The first 3 pictured below, for the National, are incredible. Does anybody know what the images are that make up the colored portion of the prints? It looks like Rodin’s Gates of Hell (which is mind-blowing in person – check it out if you’re ever in Paris) but it seems like it would be hard to make a print from a sculpture, so I’m lost. You can purchase prints from their site or view a collection of prints from past and present at Gig Posters.

It’s been a crazy week! I started a new job (which I am loving) and my little bunny friend, Squirrel, was in and out of the vet hospital and on the verge of keeling over. Finally, today, she’s back to normal and I can breath a sigh of relief. I know, I know.. I’m that strange and ridiculous
cat bunny lady. I think I can live with that.
Today I stopped by Leia Bell’s cool little print shop, Signed and Numbered. It’s there that I discovered a new favorite artist, Dan Grzeca (pronounced Jet-sah). The Chicago-based artist creates wonderfully fluid prints that mesh the animal kingdom with human engineering. His style reminds me of playful steampunk, but without (and before) steam.. folk-mechanical-punk maybe?
You can follow his progress through his blog or purchase prints at his Etsy store. I think my favorite is the first one I posted below, There is no American Buffalo but the Black Keys set is a close second. Just fantastic.

I’m kind of in love with the owl and hawk designs below from 1 A E O N. You can find the full line here on Etsy. They also run a blog which they update on a fairly regular basis with new designs and happenings.
Well, I’m getting pretty amped up to get down in Mexico. And so how do I prepare… Packing? Naw. Researching the area? Nope. Exercising to get bikini-ready? Pshaw! Looking for pics and videos of whale sharks? You know it!
And what a pleasant surprise when my quest brought me to the art work of Sepia Lepus. Her images are charming little morsels with attention to placement and pattern. A courageous little white bunny is the central figure in many of her prints. Imagine that James Bond hooked up with a mermaid and they had a baby bunny.. this would be him. He saddles pigs to fight dragons and dives with sea creatures. And frankly, I think that’s pretty great.
The images below (and many more) are available for next to nothing on her Etsy page.
*I lost a good deal of fidelity in the Arctic print when shrinking to post.

This past week I’ve been loving the art work of Alex Cherry (Of Sound and Vision), a 23 year old from Los Angeles. He uses Photoshop and Illustrator to create gritty yet ethereal images. Some of the images on his Flickr account are subtitled with band names. I’m not sure if he is doing work for these bands or just using them as inspiration, but either way, the kid can obviously rawk. You can purchase prints at DiviantART.
