Tiffany Bozic

Just recently I was going through all the art cards I’ve collected over the years from art shows, gallery exhibits, and museums in Los Angeles. I saw the card of  Tiffany Bozic and remembered how amazing her work was in person, and in print as well.  Having a huge love of animal representations in art, I automatically loved the surreal, and photoreal quality her paintings have. Take a peek!

The Mel Brooks Movie Poster

Im not afraid to admit that Mel Brooks has 3 movies in my top 5 favorite movies of all time list. But beyond the glory of the film, is the advertising specialty of the ‘movie poster’. Here’s some of Brook’s movies in all their comedy spoof posterish glory.

This is a flyer for a party in Los Angeles thrown by Chris Bowen. The artist is Ian O’Phelan. I love the monochromatic color and the handmade lettering.

I saw these works in a show at Hasted Hunt recently. The drawings were made as schematics for the photographs but I actually liked the drawings more. Some of the miniatures used in the photos were on display in the show which was fun to see. I love seeing the whole process from start to finish.

Winsor McCay

Little Sammy Sneeze (above) was a reaccurring cartoon strip from 1904-1906 by Winsor McCay. Poor little Sammy sneezed and caused havoc in every single comic strip in the two year run. I LOVE Winsor McCay’s work with my whole heart, and truly believe his work is genius. Even restricted to the structured medium of newspaper comics, his imagination literally broke the boundaries of the medium. Below are a few examples from his most popular comic series Little Nemo in Slumberland.

The Original Wonderland Craze…


The original Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland , written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) is full of these fantastic illustrations by Sir John Tenniel from 1865. Tenniel’s illustrations of the whimsical, hallucinatory story of Alice continue to inspire artists and cartoonists to this day. Im sure in the upcoming major motion picture of Alice in Wonderland, we will see lots of Tenniel’s and Carrol’s inspiration on the big screen. To see the full text and illustrations of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland go to http://www.gutenberg.org . Project Gutenberg is a website that brings you free literature online. If you haven’t checked it out YOU MUST!
