A young and ambitious SVA grad, Panayiotis Terzis weaves psychadelic journeys into nether worlds only he knows. Having lived in Providence for four years in the aftermath of Fort Thunder, I am instinctually suspicious of work like Terzais’. Yet, there is an added polish and possible drawing from deeper narratives that compels me. I am interested to see what else comes from the young artist.
Our very own Sarah Knotz has revamped her portfolio! Her new site reflects the new directions she’s taken, transitioning from strict graphic design into illustration. You can still feel her design sensibilities in the beautiful details sprinkled throughout the site, (I’m especially enjoying the numbers and titles.) Get in touch with this gal for any graphic arts needs!
O.O.P.S. (Office of Paul Sahre) Some genuine nuggets found within the work of NY design veteran and educator, Paul Sahre. The amount of humor found within his work is perfect. A little dry, a little dirty, and somewhat understated. I found the “Regrets” area of his site particularly interesting and entertaining. In it, he highlights the most regrettable professional decisions, general flukes, and published typos he’s made thus far in his career. I’m a fan. The bookcover above was recently featured on Joseph Sullivan’s My Favorite Book Covers of 2008 list.
