    Arguably my favourite artist around at the moment. I love his chilidsh humour (not toilet, just innocent) and I seem to work in the same way as he does, a lot of thought put into the idea and then execute it quickly - for example, whilst putting my folio together for art school the longest I spent on making any of my works was around an hour which included letting the paint dry.


    Anyway, here's a link to his site and here's the cover to his latest (I think) book:

    Looks like the style of Paul Davis, strangely grown up child like observations, some of it spot on.

    for: a nice break from formal design
    against: everyone's having a nice break from formal design

    Alas, like Davis, I would be impressed if the person was actually a child.

    GOD. I am SO grumpy lately!!!!
    please accept my apologies

    His books are like a printed version of his website... Childishly fun.

    I'm also a big fan of Shrigley's work. Somewhere along the line I found a book of postcards by him. Almost every one made me laugh.

    Although I might argue against the "toilet humor" comments. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for toilet humor. But a couple of my favorites from this book include "Fu@& the world" and "Orgy during an earthquake". :D

    Here's his site (I didn't notice it posted yet, but might have just missed it):
