GLENNZ Tee’s

I like to put this under my Johnny Come Lately category, because anyone who has been looking at Threadless.com, or any other online t-shirt site knows who this is.

Glenn Jones is a graphic designer and illustrator from Auckland, New Zealand. The name Glennz comes from GLENN from NZ = GLENNZ, and as he states, this was his user name on Threadless.com, which is where he gathered a huge following, so why change it.

At first glance, you might think this is easy to do, but give it a try, I think you will find this extremely tough to pull off. I equate his work with Gary Larson, creator of The Far Side. simple, flat illustrations, but full of humor and wit.  Either you get it, or you don’t.

You can now see and buy his work at his site, Glennz.com.

&mpersand

An ampersand (&) is a logogram representing the conjunction word “and”. A logogram is a grapheme which represents a word or a morpheme (the smallest meaningful unit of language). An ampersand is also my friend, so this will be the first post of all things ampersand.

Ampersand is a collaborative, student-initiated news-magazine for the Kansas City Art Institute. This gorgeous cover creation and design were done by Josh Lambert & Laura Berglund.
