analog artistry : Brian Dettmer

I've always been fascinated with the familiar made unfamiliar. Contextualization shredded and reformed.

Perhaps why I've always been interested in the works of Magritte.

And why Dettmer's works
really caught my attention.

Brian Dettmer is an artist whose work consists of altering existing media, such as books, audio tapes etc.

notebookism : a little bit of analog

As much as I love the digital medium I still hark back to the pen, pencil
and paper.
The summation pretty much says it all:

We all share a pleasant affliction - the urge to create on paper.

The smell of smooth creamy paper sends our hearts aflutter. The delicate tinkling of nib against inkwell accelerates our pulse rate. We stare endlessly at the first blank page.

Notes:

The top piece is still a work in progress at the present time.
The intent here was to put together a clean, simple print-ready ad to showcase
certain technical capabilities of the studio.

The lower piece is a completed comp made for Wrigley. The illustration-like
style lends to its surreal, candy-like atmosphere.
