More Eyeball Jazz

Jim Flora, the artist mentioned yesterday, deserves plenty of air time.

Jim Flora angry pedestrian This angry pedestrian cracks me up. The website that has been created to honor his work is exceptionally beautifully designed. Flora's mixture of action, humor, style, color, childlike fantasy and lots of music imagery is right on. He was a successful illustrator in addition to creating dozens of album covers. He also designed many children's books, which is one of the first things I wondered, as his style is perfect for it and reminds me of the children's book illustrators who have been my favorite designers since I first became entranced with graphic design and started working in the field, such as Richard McGuire.

T-shirts with some of his great art on them are available. Fine art prints of some images are also available and worth owning.
