Not only do we love Jon Boam’s mural at digital marketing and communications agency Code Computerlove, we love the process photographs on Boam’s blog that illustrate paintings-in-action (as well as selected shenanigans, naturally.) See here for more.

Miss Lotion

It is equal parts intimidating/awesome to encounter an artist who can do everything under the sun. Literally everything.

Miss Lotion draws the kinda stuff you dreamed of drawing during dull moments in high school chemistry: perfectly-proportioned, expressive and loony ice cream trucks, smokestacks, helicopters, psycho cats, magicians and piglets. Also stunningly accurate portraits. Also cool typefaces and commercial illustrations. Also paintings and logo designs.

The Danish-born artist— “born with a pen strapped to her hand”—is clearly the kind of compulsive mark-maker who can’t help herself from filling pages. We hope nothing ever stops her.

With just the right amount of creative license taken, artists Ruets, Spurn and Ewsoe exacted a Wild Things mural in Los Angeles. Good work on Max’s sneer, guys!
