This weekend I did manage to make it out to the aforementioned Simpleasures show, though sadly I’m still not quite the rich man I’d love to be, so I was good and didn’t buy anything. But I did make sure to check in on some of the artists like Liam Devowski, who’s a part of a new art collective called NEON GRAY. The group is bi-coastal-ish, wwith Liam in San Francisco and the rest of the crew, Benjamin Domanico, Joyce Kim, and Samel Ortiz-Payero, all living in Baltimore, Maryland.

Together they have a pretty slick portfolio of work, ranging from zines, to typography, to apparel, to the images you see above, basically a mediation on how awesome California is. The images were inspired by the classic book of the same name, and features digital photos “of the ever-changing landscape that is the California coast.” I think they capture the diversity of California pretty damn well, and certainly make me proud to be a Californian!

    That piece just caught my eye. I have to say it’s special. What is it about red balloons?! …

    I love this concept. But seriously, is it a reference to an MXPX song? Cause, if so, the type should be reworked.

    This is sick. One of the best things about your blog is the related posts feature. It allows me to stumble upon these gems from days past.
