Inspiration: Art

Featured: Chris Piascik

by OKAT 34

According to CNN's countdown to the election: (as of this post) we are exactly 12 days, 7 hours and 8 minutes from going to the polls. Chris Piascik doodles every day, but lately his Moleskine is filled with page after page of political observations done in beautiful hand-drawn typography. I have to admit that even my own doodles (usually random thoughts, like daydreams that make no sense) have been clouded by the 2008 election.

For Chris' feature, I had to stop myself from wanting to showcase his more familiar work (art unrelated to politics) of beautiful paintings, gocco prints and daily drawings, so that I could focus your attention on a set of images that speaks the real truth about his work: he can even make the words "Sarah Palin is trash(y)" look good.
