Is Monday gettin’ all up in your mix and making you feel sad and blue? Don’t worry Juan - it’s #FunkMongerMonday ! Today’s funk comes all the way from #London in the form of the marvellous Tim Easley.
Now, I’m a massive fan of ampersands, which automatically makes me a fan of Tim Easley. Not that I mind too much - his work makes my elbows tingle and my toes fall off. In a good way of course (although I’m gonna run out of toes any day now). I wanted to make him today’s FunkMonger because his work is a sure fire way to beat away those Monday blues with a rolled up newspaper or a really sharp stick. His illustration style is super clean, and his colours are juicer than a hot flask of swamp juice (which is pretty gross, but undoubtedly juicy). He is a self proclaimed “designustrator” which I’m fairly sure is a type of crocodile. Or a flightless bird, I dunno, why are you asking me? Either way, he’s as happy designing as he is illustrating, which definitely comes across in his work. I’ve been following him on Instagram for a while now but I only recently checked out his website portfolio www.timeasley.com , which has a whole bunch of awesome projects to smear your eyes all over. I’ve been smearin’ for four hours now and I ain’t done smearin’ so get off my back, okay? Don’t take it from me though, go and check him out for yourself - he’s up to all kinds of funk!
