Aled Lewis.


Aled Lewis on inPRNT

I came across these photo prints by Aled Lewis (his other illustration and design work is amazing, too!) a few days ago, and I can’t stop thinking about them. I love tiny animal figurines, and I extra-love making them have conversations with each other (no, really). I extra-extra-love that Lewis took it one step further and make these great little scenes with dialogue and everything. They have a Museum of Natural History diorama-like feel to them that I really dig.

I mean, you can really hear them, right? I feel sad for Rhinoceros, hanging his head in shame for evolving into a lesser beast than Triceratops. It’s not his fault! And poor Wooly Mammoth, he just wants to grow his hair out and hang with the cool kids. Moms just don’t get it.

    That is the best horse ever. And that poor rhino…but triceratops are cooler, so.

    Yeah, but at least the rhino is still around! Can’t say that for the poor ‘ol triceratops.

    These are hilarious! I want that horse hanging over my bed. My boyfriend would really get a kick out of the mammoth/elephant print.

    From one Graphic Designer to another, I thought you might enjoy this short article on fonts (written from the perspective of the font) that appeared recently in McSweeney’s. It has some 4 star language in it so be forewarned-but it is very funny. Enjoy.

    If you like animal figurines talking to each other, then you’d probably like the work of comedian Kathleen Phillips. Check out “Penny For Your Thoughts” and “This is Ana” on YouTube. (An aside: I once saw her on stage, pretending to be an ex-con recently released from prison, and it was so real, I almost believed she WAS that guy!)
