Design Nearby @ Pinkcomma Gallery 12/9/2011

Design Nearby is an exhibition series for people who love design. The series showcases inventive craft and clever aesthetics, from graphics on a shirt to mobiles made of felt to woodblock wallpaper. Design Nearby highlights works in various disciplines, with a focus on Boston-area artists and designers. These works are available for purchase. This year’s exhibit is entitled Command-P for the Macintosh keyboard shortcut that allows one to print the digital contents of their screen. Command-P explores the dichotomy between traditional and contemporary printing techniques. Each artist in this exhibit uses digital manipulation and classic printing methods in varying degrees to create their work. Whether manually screen-printed computer illustrations or die-cut letterpress prints, the pieces in this show represent the wide spectrum of work celebrating the art of printed matter.

Tofu Squirrel Illustrations And Casey Desmond's "Talking To God" Music Video

Local pop singer, Casey Desmond, took illustration classes at The Art Institute Of Boston where she met her best friend Tofu Squirrel. Over the past year, Tofu Squirrel and Casey Desmond have been combining forces in order to bring Casey's world to life through illustrations. They created a psychedelic space world full of pink trees, flying caterpillars, blue deer, space plants, crystals, synths and more. With the help of Tofu Squirrel, close friends, and family, Casey Desmond was able to create sets, costumes, visuals, and more for her music video "Talking To God". What some of you may not know is that Casey is not only a phenomenal singer, she's also a song writer, art director, designer, illustrator, and she designs and sews all of her own stage costumes. For a low budget music video, the song and visuals are unique and stunning. Casey Desmond is one of a kind. Check it out:

Here are some of Tofu Squirrel's illustrations done for Casey:
