#INTERNET Ah, we're back! Like we said, we were just "chilling out" for like 3 years. Feels good to have the team back writing. Still us three: Chuck, Benjamin, and Virgil. Got new interviews coming up, and hopefully we'll be posting on a regular basis, who knows. We also interviewed each other, check: CHUCK, BENJAMIN, VIRGIL...

Kelsey Brookes!

Kelsey is an amazing illustrator. Now that that is out of the way…I’ve always admired artists who maintain a very ‘innocent’ quality to their work, a youthful feel…As if some prodigal 6 year old did it rather than a clever adult…That’s not to say Kelsey’s work is immature - not one bit. But many of the illustrations just have this ‘loose’ feel to them that I absolutely love. Others, like the surf paintings (check out those snakes in surf paintings #6!!!) are just incredible. The compositions, the colors, the vintage, worn feel to it all. Sometimes artists need to take a step back, stop working, and just admire what others are doing, and Kelsey’s is a great portfolio to do that with. Dang!
