From Dinosaurs To Ezawa

I was just image-Googling dinosaur art for a secret mission and found a pile of work by artist Kota Ezawa and then I got all into it. I love Ezawa’sstuff–it’s beautiful, low-fi, looks simplistic but isn’t. The drawing is both mechanical and honest, which is an empty-sounding statement you’ll just have to trust me on. I’ve looked at a lot of drawing over the years and I know honest from not.

Ezawa’s work also reminds me of some of prairie dog’s greatest design. Artists: if they didn’t invent stuff for graphic designers to steal, who would?

Anyway, Kota Ezawa. Check him out!

  1. Nice! Illustrated Beatles covering Dead Kennedys is one of the cooler things I’ve seen of late. Perhaps the only thing cooler would be to see illustrated Dead Kennedys covering “Yellow Submarine.” I bet a cartoon Jello Biafra would rip that song to shreds in a wonderful way…

  2. You’d figger that he could have done better justice to the audio on the oj video, very good work otherwise. Ed Sullivan show Beatles cool.

  3. Re: OJ: It’s not a great quality video–it’s clearly filmed off a monitor. Best I could find.
