Is Monday gettin’ all up in your mix and making you feel sad and blue? Don’t worry Denise - it’s #FunkMongerMonday ! Today’s funk is delivered in the form of the Risograph racoon, Sonny Ross.
It’s week 20 of #FunkMongerMonday and today I wanted to feature Sonny Ross, who I’ve been a fan of for a sweet mile while crocodile. His illustrations will make your fringe turn into extra strong mints and leave you with wet ears and net tears. All in a good way of course! I stumbled across Sonny when I saw one of his marvellous plant patterns, and I was super psyched when I finally discovered who it belonged to. His illustration style is sweeter than a litre of anteaters, and his colour schemes are fresh and clean like Tom Hanks. His zine work is wicked cool kagool, and his Riso prints make you wanna lay ‘em out real neat on the ground and roll in ‘em like a hog at a late night hog-wash. Wash them hogs Penelope!
Don’t take my word for it though you scamps - check Sonny out like a pair of fancy checkered socks. He’s up to all kinds of funk. Go grab yourself a copy of Rojo and Baxter too - it’s an illustration zine that Sonny wrangles and is full of pretty things with pretty springs. It’ll make you feel tremendous!
