I chose Norman Duenas as this week’s featured artist without even realizing it. Generally I get interested in the design and then the artist. I avoid checking out the artist at the beginning so that I don’t get biased by their existing popularity. People unconsciously develop an affinity for something that is already popular, I being one of them sometimes. So I try to avoid that by focusing purely on the design . With that in mind I realized that I have featured this artist many a times before so I felt compelled to dedicate him a special post.
So here is Norman Duenas 23 year old illustrator, often featured on Threadless and Designbyhumans with a lot of t-shirt designs printed, who frequently uses the nature theme in his work. I like the warm colors he always uses and the abstract intertwining of ideas. His messages are never simple or childish.
