wayne pate

i love this whimsical – yet simpleness of wayne pate’s screen prints. i am really loving the detail on the pants in contemplating hockney – how the outline of his legs are the same color as the background. i’ve been trying to incorporate more of this – uhh how do you describe this – in my graphic design – but i’m not good enough at all the tools for it to be easy – it seems like it should be – but alas – frustrated sally – i just need to keep practicing… i digress.
check out wayne pate’s work here. his screen prints are pretty large – and the prices are really great – perfect for a kids room – or to add a bit of playfulness to an ‘adult’ room.

Neon letters – a|B

Monday, November 8th, 2010

my roommate, Kristen, started dabbling in neon last year, and it made me really appreciate neon as art, rather than neon as an ‘open’ sign or ‘liquor’ sign. K told me neon is actually a really difficult medium to work with & something that looks really simple is actually quite an accomplishment. i love how neon is happy, and pop art-y, and the light actually creates a distinct mood in the room. imagine going into this kitchen with the lights dimmed and those letters turned on – don’t you think it would just liven up the atmosphere – the kitchen would automatically be more fun, right?
thanks ffffound and john dummer
