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.
