Artist Dan Golden is back with more clever wall graphics – and clocks! Plus we’ve got a Shiddy giveaway. Since Dan’s original quirky graphics debuted at Blik, Dan has formed Dan Golden Studio with Jen Huh, drew some Shiddy drawings and came up with more work that tickles our funny bone.
The simplicity of Dan Golden’s line art drawings make them look like doodles right off a cocktail napkin. We love Dan’s outlook and his witty take on the dissatisfaction we’ve all experienced with our life. Dan helps us see the humor in our situation by providing us with an Escape Hatch, a Door into our “real” apartment or a clock that makes time ambiguous by keeping track of it in Facial Hair.
Giveaway: To celebrate the launch of his new collection at Blik, Dan Golden gave us 5 Shiddy drawings to give away. Who is Shiddy? He’s a cute little fella who walks around with his (mostly) silent friend Alan, making funny, sad observations about life. He is an existential nihilist, but under his gloomy disposition lies the heart of a true optimist. There’s a little bit of Shiddy in all of us. Scroll down to see all 5 drawings. Each unframed drawing is dated and signed by Dan Golden.
