As we say farewell to Chris, we welcome a new voice from across the pond. September’s guest contributor, Monsieur Cabinet (Dave) lives and works in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Alongside freelance work, he teaches graphic design and illustration at Leeds College of Art. MC’s work is swimming in wordplay and puns while he adamantly claims: “I first became interested in art when I realized I wasn’t very clever.”

We beg to differ. His work is inspiring precisely because it feels so effortless. Love love his contributions to 1000 Awesome Things. Help us welcome this British invasion while you enjoy some more selects of his work.
