Greg Lamarche

Greg's work uses simple letterforms and creates shapes and environments and clouds out of them that seem to float and morph with each angle you view them from.

Issac Cordal

I'll let Issac say it best:

Cement eclipses is a research project about the urban space, in-between sculpture and photography. Sculpture is used as a starting point and photography as a witness to the execution of installations for later publishing or exhibition. The small pieces (25 cm. approx.) are made in cement, then reproduced with silicone molds. The figurines represent a kind of metamorphosis through which human being leaves his role of citizen merging with the city and slowly becoming part of urban furniture.

Then confirming its voluntary isolation/alienation from nature, hiding himself among sidewalks, streets, walls, etc. and transforming little by little the urban environment in its natural habitat.

This project started in 2006 as a nomad project and as a continuous process, combining urban installation and street art. Cement eclipses was developed in urban areas of several European cities including Berlin, London, Brussels, Liege, Barcelona, Vigo, etc. Most of the photographs in this dossier have been realised in London, where I currently reside, between September 2008 and January 2009.

Jason Koxvold

Jason Koxvold is an art director living in NY and doing photography on the side. I ran across his site and thought that for someone doing photo on the side it was actually really good. He focuses on the landscape mostly in a style that fits within the new topographic ideal. His images are mostly devoid of people with the exception of his Water series.

Steve Lambert

Steve Lambert is an artist living in NYC who uses advertising as inspiration. Obviously conflicted about whether he loves or hates it, he uses advertising tools as his art. My favorite works are his signs. He imitates signs he's seen in LA and NYC, but changes the message to suit his sense of humor. They are very well crafted.

Craig Ward

Craig is an illustrator and type designer responsible for the latest Dockers campaign graphics. His attention to detail is unmatched, everything feels so raw and analog in the best possible way. His laser cut wood type reminds me of Scott Campbell's laser cut dollars.

super size art

SSA is Morgan Howell who owns an ad agency in England and does his painting on the side. You may remember a little while back, the giant tapes, well Morgan does giant records. He paints distressed record sleeves with the discs in them. He also does old books, but all are painted large. It takes these everyday objects and makes them so much more.
