Since music often inspires me to make art, I figured I could do a monthly blog post about a few artists and their albums. I’ll try and keep it short, like 3-5 albums max, the ones that are on repeat on my playlist!
I recently bought a Vukojarac t-shirt from my DBH store… I love it, took a bunch of pictures of it, buuuuuuut – I now want to tell you more about the Vukojarac!
As you may or may not know, I have a Threadless artist shop :
As a part of Threadless, I sometimes take part in their challenges, this time I entered the ARTIVISM challenge with two designs. One is a killer bee with writing “My death is your demise” – world is a better place with bees in it, so save the bees! The other one is a very old design, a sad piggy that is crying because YOU ATE IT’S MOTHER! It’s supposed to inspire people to eat less meat…
I’m into occult symbols and weird designs
I’ve been very busy lately making an occult looking collection of designs starring a sphynx cat, a bat, and a plague rat. They are all simple black and white vector graphics, high contrasted and featuring lots of geometric shapes and occult symbols. The collection is available on my Redbubble store: vonkowen.redbubble.com.
A while ago I was asked to design a logo AND an album cover for a metal band called ORKA. I was so happy, cause the guys said I could do whatever I wanted to do 😀
I started my Pinterest boards some time ago, pinning randomly stuff I like and things that inspire me. My two favorite boards are, naturally, collections of skulls and awesome dark and macabre art. I like visiting these boards when starting a new project. I guess other people like this stuff too since I have 61k monthly viewers. YAY! That’s cool…
I love Instagram because I found so many amazing artists there. One of those beautiful souls is Samuel Araya, whose art is a big inspiration to me.
