kozyndan

Towards the end of last year I was trying to find artwork to buy for Tim for Christmas. I settled for Angelique Houtkamp’s artwork, a Dutch tattoo artist/painter/shoe designer.

As I was trying to find a substantial piece that Tim would love, I stumbled across kozyndan. Dan and Kozue Kitchens are the fabulous duo that is kozyndan (Santa Monica based illustrators).
I particularly love their artworks Kachido, Bunny Blossom and Uprisings.
Uprisings and Kachido reminds me of the illustrations from my favourite children’s book, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. However, kozyndan’s images are not as dark.
I can stare at Uprisings and Kachido all day long, I just love it.
