Daniel Bejar

I just discovered an amazing Illustrator by the name of Daniel Bejar. His work is all very thought provoking and well executed. There aren't many designers who can make such important statements in such innovative and smart ways. The works are just all beautiful! The piece above, Identity Theft was awarded the silver medal from the Society of Publication Designers in June 2006. Well deserved nod if you ask me!

"The Summer of '04"

I really like seeing the fingerprints and smudges along the outside edges of each piece. It reminds me of how Rodin's fingerprints and nail marks can be seen in his sculptures because he liked to mold with his hands. There is something humanzing and beautiful about works that are created by artists who like to get dirty and use their hands as tools, instead of to hold tools, while they are creating.

"Are you responsible for your own weight?"

There is a link for a future shop on Daniel's website. I hope it comes soon!
