PHOTOGRAPHY BY 13th WITNESS

After strolling through my blog (yup, I do that sometimes), I realized that I haven’t done many photography posts, which is quite strange since it is one of the many things that I’m interested in. There are so many photographers whose aesthetic I admire and the one I wanted to share with you this evening is the work of Tim McGurr aka 13th Witness. 13th Witness is a Native New Yorker whose photos are raw and intimate at the same time. I love his style of photography because he chooses to look at the “big picture” – literally. His love for architecture and landscapes is what initially drew me to his work.

Below are a just a few of my recent favorite photographs, as well as a short video courtesy of I Am Other on 13th Witness’ background.

ILLUSTRATIONS BY KAWS

Artist and designer, Brian Donnelly b.k.a. KAWS is a graduate of New York City’s School of Visual Arts. KAWS started his career as a graffiti artist while growing up in Jersey City, New Jersey. He has done animation work on the Disney film 101 Dalmatians, as well as the animated shows Daria and Doug. He’s no stranger to having his images on clothing and in art galleries.

I first saw KAWS’ work on Tumblr and recently I had the opportunity to see some upcoming work that he did for the retailer that I work for. I really dig his use of color and how he puts a dope spin on old school cartoons.

You can read about and see more of KAWS’ work here and here.

WHAT I’M DIGGIN’ (OFLOW THE CREATIVE IPHONE APP)

The brain child of creativity expert, Tanner Christensen – the Oflow app allows you to explore your creativity at any time and any place. This is how it works – the app provides you with techniques (creative methods) to help guide you in solving problems or setting personal goals, which essentially helps you to think about things in a different light, therefore producing different outcomes. Building creativity. Oflow also allows you to take personal notes of your thoughts and findings so you can refer to them at a later date. You can bookmark your favorite creative methods and share them with others as well. Sharing is caring, right?

THE DOSE – THE GRAPHIC DESIGNER EDITION (Packaging, Branding & Print Design)

Introduction

Well hello there! My name is Jon Davila and I’m a Self-Employed Graphic Designer from Brooklyn, New York.

What are you creatively addicted to? When did you start? 

My specialties as a Graphic Designer consist of Packaging, Branding and Print Design. I am (and forever will be) creatively addicted to typography to the point of typoholism! My addiction started at a very young age when I was first introduced to learning blocks…sad story, I won’t bore you with all of the details.

Why do you create?

My passion for design drives me to create. There’s nothing more rewarding than taking a simple thought that’s floating in your head and giving it life. Whether I’m designing for a client or creating a personal piece, the answer is ultimately the same, designing promotes happiness. It provides me with a natural high that can’t be explained.

Where can people find your work?
