Daniel Carlsten Illustration for Dwell

I got the newest issue of Dwell a couple weeks ago and when I was flipping through it I came across the beautiful illustration you see above. My first thought was “Who did this?” and I looked and it was a guy name Daniel Carlsten. But why did that sound familiar? Because I posted about him last November, you might remember his extremely awesome invite for Acne.

I don’t know what it is about this illustration that excites me so much. Everything seems psuedo-realistic but still has this playful character to it. Honestly the scan above doesn’t do it justice, but this is probably one of my favorite illustrations that Dwell has run in the past year or so. Be sure to pick up the newest issue and check it out for yourself.

    I just saw your post about the recent illustration from Dwell. I meant to write you about this a while back. We initially discovered Daniel’s work through your blog not so very long ago! Thanks for the inspiring post that turned our attention to his work. I guess we owe you a finders fee… sincerely the design team at Dwell.

    @Kyle – Or just hire me and get it over with? I’ll be happy to move to SF!
