Tatsushi Eto | July 12, 2016 | SnF

Tatsushi Eto is a designer, illustrator, and creative director based in Kawasaki, Japan. It's hard to say what appeals most to me about Tatsushi's style. His negative space is never banal (rarely actually empty at all) although it still works to balance the rest of his image & gives room to breathe. His drawings (check out his site and his instagram to see more of his work) all possess the clarity of the most successful designs, but none move into the arena of sterility that often accompany that achievement. But really, and what you'll see here today, is that his choice of subject is maybe what's most attractive to me. This scene, to me, is perfect. It's a person doing what a person does - explores, innovates to explore further - in tandem with the natural world. An image of solitude, but also unity; an image of peace, but also excitement.

Michael Ward | June 1, 2016 | SnF

Michael Ward joins Tiny Showcase with an edition of "Used Cars." The original painting was developed from a photograph by the artist taken in 1975 depicting a used car lot in Long Beach, CA. Three decades later, when this scene was long gone (and replaced by a storage facility) it became a painting. And in the painting, the heat and the culture of that time are enhanced and preserved. When you look, do you know, almost immediately, that it's of a previous era of American culture? Or do you think the same scene could be recreated today?

For those of you in Laguna Beach OR Ashbury Park, you can catch Michael's work at the California Arts Festival and Palette Gallery respectively. For more details, check out Michael's blog.

Evoking the damp shadow of a moonlit jungle, accompanied by beasties goofing in their kingdoms, this year's calendar surges with energy around a cool, calm moonlight rippling across a sea of moons. What more could one ask for to guide one through the evenings 2016?

Beastly Verse | June 8, 2015 | SnF

Check the ever-talented JooHee Yoon arriving here at Tiny Showcase by way of her new book, Beastly Verse, with an accompanying limited & signed screen print of her drawing "Night Pigeon."

Yup that's 48 pages of full-color illustrations - four of which unfold into gorgeously extended spreads - accompanying 16 playful & powerful poems. Tigers, hummingbirds, pelicans, snails, and other animal characters accompany the poetry of Lewis Carroll, William Blake, D.H. Lawrence, Anonymous, and more. This beautiful little number will happily introduce (or reinforce) poetry's invaluable place in your life and days, and the life and days of the small someone you might be persuaded to share it with. More here.

Somerset Floods | May 7, 2015 | SnF

Robert G. Fresson ring a bell? Perhaps his name might not but his work surely will. And if his work doesn't then you are in for a twist: socks knocked off, marbles lost, tops flipped, minds melted into a cooler and cleaner state, rich with light and sated with clarity. Ever thought an illustration could do so much? Of course you did. That is, after all, why we're all here. You can learn more about this Bath-based boat-dwelling artist on his portfolio site.

Thank you | May 5, 2015 | SnF

Yes it's true. Thanks to your support we raised over $25,000 for the World Wildlife Fund. It's no trifling amount and it will go toward efforts to increase environmental conservation, and to reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth.

And of course thanks to Josh Keyes, without whom this continued contribution toward environmental protection organizations would not be possible. Check out more of his outstanding work on his portfolio site.
