I’m Angie of …pangea! and I’m absolutely ecstatic about the opportunity I’ve been given to share some of my favorite art pieces with you every week! I’m calling it the Wednesday Art Showcase, and I’ll be choosing one artist each week to share with you! They will be either illustrators or graphic designers (or a little of both, which is my personal favorite!).
I have a long list of artists I admire at the moment, so it’s going to be hard to narrow it down to just one each week, but I don’t want to overwhelm you! So I’m starting this week with an exceptionally talented illustrator named Matt Brown.
Matt Brown just opened his Etsy shop about a month ago, but his work immediately stood out to me because it’s very intricately beautiful. Possibly what draws me to his work most is the nautical theme he seems to carry through a few of his prints, and EVERYONE knows that I have a terrible weakness for anything nautical (ok, so you didn’t probably know that, but you do now!) I tend to navigate toward cool colors and large sea creatures, so his work triggered an instant love-type reaction in me, and I bet it will grow on you a tad bit as well.
Mr. Brown also has a fine art website where he sells originals, which you can find here. According to his Etsy profile, “[his] pictures have been sent to places as diverse as a Manhattan fashion designer, the London Stock Exchange, the Lonely Planet Publishing House and a US Navy warship,” (which is pretty incredible in my book!).
Well, thanks everyone for joining me for the first ever Wednesday Art Showcase! Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
See you right here for next week’s installment!
