Check out Ink Lounge Gallery at Belmar. We haven’t met the owners yet, but we like the looks of what they’re doing there. They’ve got a lot of things cooking, so we’ll let their site tell you the details. It’s a husband and wife team dedicated to bringing cool printmaking exhibits and workshops to good folks like you — including a beginning silk screening class. They’re also giving back, donating proceeds from openings to charities. We like that. Pay ‘em a visit, would you?
Christvertising takes a whole new approach to marketing your brand. We skip the strategic deliverables. We pass on the matrixes, the payoffs and the metrics. We ignore any viral functionality. We focus on the ultimate end-user: God.
Okay, you probably already do know about Jay. Or at least you know his stuff. He has worked with Westword for a long time, creating some of the paper’s most attention-grabbing covers and spreads. We love his silk-screened rock posters even more. They’re featured in the Art of Modern Rock, a fantastic tome of the best concert posters of our day.
Jay told us the Egotist is “really cool.” The feeling is mutual. We’re proud to add him to our list of Recommended Talent.
Coming on the heels of our ode to the immense talent that has left Denver, here’s a bit of good news. Shaw Nielsen is an emerging illustrator based right here. He’s a graduate of Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design and he studied illustration in San Francisco at the Academy of Art. Plus, ADCD had the good sense to recognize him with a Silver last year. Let’s see if we can’t keep him here. Find him on our list of Recommend Talent.
Local motion graphic rock star, Adam Espinoza, recently sent us a note to check out some other wicked talent who used to live in Denver – now lighting up other cities around the country. We’re pumped to see these guys killing it, but bummed that they set sail.
This video floated around a while ago. You may have seen it. France’s Callegari Berville Grey made it better by adding some super supers over the top, making it more relevant to your everyday life. Enjoy.
