Perspective by Kelli Anderson
Kelli Anderson’s insatiable curiosity is contagious. The Brooklyn-based artist and designer is something of a virtuoso when it comes to seamlessly incorporating diverse techniques to achieve a dynamic final product—one that actively encourages exploration. Photography, printmaking, paper craft, illustration, animation and cutting coalesce. Data, hard science, history and coding even make it into the mix.
Her debut edition, for instance, is a laser-cut print of a digital illustration of an abstracted world map. It has a tactile element and a science-y, cerebral aspect. And then you’ve got the bright, bold, geometric stripes that break up the organic forms of the continents and urge the viewer to rethink their worldview—our first example of fresh Perspective from this print.

Got a weakness for William Wegman
’s pup-packed prints? Join the club. His playful, evocative, expertly composed images are perennial crowd-pleasers. A longtime 20x200 artist and fellow New Yorker, Wegman

Imagine That by Debbie Millman

is also a formidable artist and designer in her own right, and it's that incarnation of her mega multi-faceted being whom we have to thank for today's very special edition release, Imagine That

I’ve loved picking out gifts
for people since I was a little kid saving up my cat-sitting cash to buy just the right thing for my family, but I’ve got a spotty record with the actual gift giving
—precisely because I love it so much and have always set the bar really high. It’s not enough to give a gift to someone, it has to be the BEST gift
for that particular person. Get Jen's tips after the jump »
Shard by Jennifer Mason
Like written language, calendars and eyeliner, Shard
had its genesis in Egypt...just a few millennia later. After a long flight from her home base of Auckland, New Zealand, Jennifer Mason
was struck by the scene outside her window as her plane descended into Egypt. She noticed “an incredible rose hue” blanketing the view below, an ambiance that persisted on the ground—a warm, hazy, low-contrast effect. MORE after the jump »
Lake Erie, February (01) by Laura Bell
’s work has totally transfixed us for years. Her landscapes seem liminal spaces, and her still lifes in states of quiet movement. Bell
has an incredible talent for capturing stillness, for conveying a pregnant silence that is as enigmatic as it is anesthetic. Her minimalism is more a reflection on the power of eliminating distraction, of seeing the deeper details of environment, flora, form and texture. MORE after the jump »
Gas station. Kern County, California by Dorothea Lange
Today's edition is by another pioneering woman who we greatly admire, Dorothea Lange
. The sentiment she captured at a small gas station outside of Los Angeles in 1938 is a pertinent—and pressing—call to action today. It reminds us what it means to be a patriot. It reminds us of the potential power of every voice. Most importantly, it reminds us of the strength in standing up for what’s right, no matter what your means, and staying stronger together
in this pivotal presidential election. Tomorrow’s the day to do just that. Won’t you join us? MORE after the jump »
