Faesthetic, an illustration and design journal that started as a hard-to-find, fold-over photocopied zine, started off real good and then took a little tumble down that slippery slope of perfect-bound commercial art. Nick Gazin wasn't so keen on the last issue...what did he say again? Oh yeah: "Maybe just rifle through a copy and tear out the drawings that you think are good then try to flush the rest down the Borders bathroom toilet." Ouch. But the rules change when someone's got the good taste to print your own amazing stuff. Not only that, he swears, this one's actually good and the whole thing's back on track. Read on for his picks.
This is Panyiotis Terzis, who was in my class at SVA. A lot of the images in his huge amazing silkcreens seem to be scary/silly nightmare wars between candy colored clowns and silly string demons.
Pedro Lourenco's inky slinky drawings appeal to me, a guy, liker of Pettibon and comics in general.
Julia Heglund is better known by her middle name, Sonmi. She's basically the Queen of Threadless and makes girly swirly psych images of girls and foxes and foxy girls with bedroom eyes.
I know nothing about Momo excpet that I like his lines. Look at all them lines. Mmm mmm.
Some of Aaron Hogg's stuff kinda reminds me of Keichii Tanaami. His shit's fun, lotsa textures.
Last but not least, these are my pages. Yeah.
