I've long been an admirer of the clean-lined work of the artist-designer Ragnar. He's uses an interesting color palette that cleverly hides and reveals details. Ragnar's got a new book out called Aphorismyth, which is loaded with his latest illustrations. (As a bonus, I met him last year at Baby Tattooville and he is a very nice person.)
Ragnar is inspired by the things he loves; film noir, classic cartoons, mid century design and punk rock. After stints in Japan, Mexico, Taiwan and San Francisco he landed in Los Angeles to attend Art Center College Of Design. For the better part of a decade he has worked as a character designer and art director for virtually every studio in town including Disney, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Sony, MTV and Warner Bros. His punk rock ethos eventually drove him back to the do-it-yourself world where he's garnered a large and growing following of fans and collectors.
