There are some tasty tasty updates in the portfolio of Kindrid Studio. Count me as a fan of Andrew Fairclough’s style.

We Buy Your Kids have been on fire lately in my opinion. They have found their style and nestled themselves firmly and confidently within it. They recently did an entire show for the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas and I managed to snag a few of the posters. They didn’t get their fair share of love from the poster collecting scene in my opinion but it’s a crowd relatively unaccustomed to contemporary graphic design which is definitely where WBYK leans. I dig it. I dig it big time.

Jonathan Zawada has kept busy. The best way to see what he has been up to is by checking in on his ‘commercial portfolio‘ where there looks to be a lot of activity since I last dropped in a long while back.

There is some strong work represented in the portfolio of Aussie designer extraordinaire Sam Pemberton, not the least of which includes the city of Melbourne rebrand you no doubt saw rippling through the creative blogosphere a few months prior.

If you are a fan of ‘type as image’ then you have to have heard of or should at least be following the work of Luke Lucas. If you haven’t then it’s time to get familiar as he recently updated his personal portfolio.

Here’s another Aussie skate punk band I have started to follow. They’ve got a fun, low-fi and crunch sound that despite the grit goes down smooth on melody. There are some great tracks on their EP that you can grab on iTunes and their full length album ‘Nothing to Do’ was just released last month.

Band: Bleeding Knees Club
Track: Teenage Girls
Taken from: Debut album ‘Nothing To Do’ – Feb 2012
Directed By: Alan Ortiz

Yanni Floros is an Adelaide based artist that trained at the National Art School in Sydney and graduated as a sculpture major. Perhaps this helps to explain how he can literally sculpt his drawings created with the use of a charcoal pencil generating imagery that truly jumps right off of the page. Prepare yourself for some amazing talent.

George Nova is a young Australian artist and designer with a skilled hand at producing graphite and watercolor illustrations. His imagery is clean, to the point and a helluva a lot of fun to look at.

“Craig Redman and Karl Maier live on opposite sides of the world but collaborate daily to create bold work that is filled with simple messages executed in a thoughtful and often humorous way. They specialize in illustration, installation, typography, as well as character, editorial and pattern design.

Craig & Karl have exhibited across the world, most notably at the Musée de la Publicité, Louvre. They have worked on projects for clients like LVMH, Nike, Apple, Vogue, Microsoft, Converse, MTV and The New York Times.”

It’s probably best to keep an eye on this dynamic duo because even before joining forces they were attracting a lot of attention. And from the looks of their portfolio they are going to be attracting a whole lot more.

I am digging this series of skate decks for Future Past Skateboards by Australian designer and illustrator Nick Thompson. It’s a great mishmash of 50′s advertising and pop art stewed together. What better place than a skate deck for something like that?

Australian artist/illustrator Nina Maskiell has created some intricate organic vegitation-inspired black and white renderings that would not be easy to produce. So far there are only a few images in her portfolio but it’s probably not a stretch to say that she is just getting started.
