The varied and colorful talents of Ellen Kling are almost too far-ranging to summarize in the form of a single blog post, so we’ll just introduce you to the artist/designer and then set you on your path toward discovering her Midas touch.
Klings illustration work is truly a portfolio to behold, and her design aesthetic is one that we can only describe as “delectable” (we especially dig the ice-cream colors and celestial dessert illustrations.) The dossier also includes “Forbidden Love”, a 24-page zine about Kling’s love-hate relationship with deodorant, a couple of other small book projects, a giant red snake painted on canvas with acrylic and “Cats”, a work of paper cats embedded in layers of plexiglass. Among much more.
Finally, there’s Kling’s blog, which is an ever-unfurling document of the artist’s life and work, interspersed with charming notes on friends, movies and the way that energy drinks make her feel (weird).
