“”Not Forgotten” my contribution for tonight’s ’30 Years Later’ group show at @galleries1988 in LA. All pieces are inspired by films from 1988. I have already seen so many stunning pieces. Really thrilled to be included in this.”

“We were exceedingly lucky to work with Bryan at Paper Obscura on last month’s subscription box, and he asked us a few questions about our work and inspiration. Click through if you’d like to learn more about us and what we have coming up this year.

Paper Obscura, by the way, is a super cool literary subscription box, perfect for any fan of thrilling tales, twisty turns, and oddities of all shapes and sizes. April boxes are sold out, but May sign ups are around the corner!”

Derek & Brighton Ballard

“Some detailed shots of a 2 color poster I designed for @ibasedbod ‘s upcoming short film. Showing at Brewvies this Friday. Brighton and I printed this on our in-house Risograph printer. @ Urban Lounge.”

“My incredible Oma turned 100 on March 8th. Brighton and I designed and hand printed handkerchiefs as a party favor for her celebration that weekend. The design is based on some of Oma’s favorite things: ladybugs, humming birds, Las Vegas, Spring, and 4711 perfume. I based some of the typography off the stunning 4711 bottle label I would always see Oma with. Also the fragrance is unmistakably connected to her- so we spritzed all the handkerchiefs with 4711 before giving them to guests at the party.”

MAUDE SQUAD, my contribution to @spoke_art’s “Coen, where art thou?” group show. Opening tomorrow at Spoke Art NYC. To use the parlance of our times, this show is gonna be a fricken’ banger!


Alisa Bishop Bradley

“I had the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing web comic Warm Blood, different artists do every 4 or so pages, so it’s a neat project! I did the first 4 pages of the newest chapter, 6. It’s a comic about some supernatural weirdness and a high school murder mystery. These were fun to work on, and challenging, comics are tough, haha.”

“2018 has been a whirlwind so far. Between rushing to complete tight deadlines and adventuring around Hawaii, I haven’t had a chance to post about this month’s @slugmag cover I had the opportunity to design, let alone flip through it. This morning I found a quiet beach and did just that. Pick one up at anywhere cool.”


Kim Jeppson

“I found this quote the other day that I designed about 18 months ago as I was transitioning from my old secretarial job to my current design job. It feels just as appropriate now as I’m seeking out a position that’s more in line with what I want to do. Looking to blossom.”
