a store i've been meaning to get to for a while in nyc was giant robot! i read about their post-it show in the previous weeks and was absolutely dying to go. $20 for original art done on 3" X 3" post-its? amazing! i was pleasantly surprised to see that there was still tons of post-its to pick from. i think i'd been having nightmares of when i got there, there would be nothing left.
i bet you can tell which post-it i bought from this grouping...
spot the jaime hernandez, i knew brenden was a big fan, but i didn't buy it cause i wasn't crazy about it the post-it, maybe if it was drawing of a nice girly...
i really liked the pink monster creature thing hatching out of the egg by peter hamlin...
spent forever in the store picking out post-its, and just generally in awe of all of amazing books and cute fun stuff toys and weird japanese things stuffed into the tiny space... including an r2d2 usb powered humidifier. huh? yeah. there was also an unusual amount of cat art. something that gets me in trouble every time. here are the post-its that came home with me... can't wait to get them into little vintage frames, and i'm going to cheat and order custom cut mats on-line because i don't want to eff it up.
by brooklyn artist peter hamlin i pretty much loved EVERY one of his post-its & want to be his new best friend.
deth p. sun, he draws mostly cats. the most amazing cats. ever. check out his on-line shop for original paintings etc... hi i would love to do a jewelry collab with you. please.
oh no big deal, just a little something by tim biskup. i've been a huge fan forever. it goes without saying that i would absolutely kill to do a jewelry collab with you, sir. i would kill, then i would make the jewelry from prison. uh, just kidding. ok not really. x
so the show is up until july 7th, if you're anywhere near ny, you need to stop by, it's super fun. if you're not close by, don't fret, the lovely very patient lady at giant robot was in the process of photographing the post-its, and the show is going on-line! so you'll be able to get a piece of this post-it action as well.
