Susan Kare

This is a little off the norm, but it's total worth a gander. Susan Kare was the artist charged with creating the icons for Apple early on. Her sketchbook was recently scanned and publicized for all to gaze upon. It gives you a new appreciation for graph paper.

Richard Sargent

Richard Sargent shoots billboards. Not in the redneck with a rifle and a pickup sense, but with a camera sense. He stalks decaying billboards in the East Bay area and frames them up square so they take on a really abstract quality. To take something from ugly to gorgeous in 1/250th of a second is a real talent.

Max De Esteban

Max takes technique to the max on this project. He meticulously deconstructs the technology of yesteryear and photographs it layer by layer. He then reassembles the objects in Photoshop. I'm still trying to figure out how he got the color he did. It's amazing stuff.
He's currently showing the work at Klompching Gallery in NYC. So get up there before it comes down at the end of December.

Check it out here.
