Is Monday gettin’ all up in your mix and making you feel sad and blue? Don’t worry Enid - it’s #FunkMongerMonday ! Today’s funk comes at you in the form of my favourite type wrangler - Jay Roeder.
Week 25 of #FunkMongerMonday is here and as per usual I’m gonna hoot and holler about somebody so awesome that they’ll cure your Monday blues quicker than a plate of hot bacon. Today’s Monger of Funk is Jay Roeder, who wrangles letters and words and makes ‘em feel pretty on the inside.
When I stumbled across Jay’s page, I disappeared off the face of the earth for three long days and three long nights. I was rolling’ and scrollin’ through his work, and I kept tellin’ myself “I’m gonna stop looking after the next piece” but I couldn’t keep away, man! His work is a treasure chest of type that’ll net you up and take you hostage. Everything is so colourful and fresh! His work shoots out so many good vibes that they get stuck in your nose holes and every time you sneeze, you blow peoples ears off. Want your ears back? Too bad Janine, they got blown over next door’s fence ‘cos of this here typography.
Now, Jay is a busy fella, and judging by the sheer volume of work he creates, he must create a significant amount of it while he is still fast asleep. Or maybe his feet aren’t feet but are actually hands. That might explain it, because he’d be able to work on a piece with his regular hands, and work on another piece with his peculiar lookin' feet-hands. Stop pointing out his feet-hands and go check out his work - he’s up to all kinds of funk that’ll turn your knees back to front and make you feel like horse in shorts. Don’t take my word for it though, go right this second! Vamos!
