David McLimans

I love the colorful and exhuberant creatures produced in various media by David McLimans
While some of his works echo similar formal researches by artists like Mehdi Mo'eeniPeter Clark
Pesce Fresco and others, David seems to have a unique ability to make striking and stylish art in all sorts 
of media, from digital illustration to collage, to sculpture made of natural materials and recycled junk.

McLiman has won awards for his editorial illustrations, which appear in many 
important American publications, and he has published two children's book: 
Gone Wild: An Endangered Animals Alphabet (2007 Caldecott Honor Book), 
and Gone Fishing: Ocean Life by the Numbers.
If you love these, don't miss David's stunning sketchbook, a beautiful explosion of creativity.

Travelling back in time in a yellow submarine,
landed on a planet full of color and dreams,
it's a summer full of love I put flowers in my air
young people are painting them everywhere...

Peter's Printed Paper Poodles

After admiring Peter Clark's richly textured three dimensional collages at Kickcan and Conkers a few months ago, I was glad to discover that Black Dog recently published a book of his artworks.

Clark is a long time collector of ephemera and his collages are beautifully assembled from old maps, stamps, buttons and other vintage objects that he finds visiting antique markets and secondhand stores with his wife, textile designer Karen Nicol. I love all of Peter's beasts, but as you can see I am especially fond of his colorful and often very funny dog portraits. Make sure to also check out his fantastic paper garments!
