Is Monday gettin’ all up in your mix and making you feel sad and blue? Don’t worry Ringo - it’s #FunkMongerMonday ! Today’s funk comes all the way from #Baltimore in the form of Daniel Shaffer.
It’s the 21st week of my #FunkMongerMonday feature and I’m having a blast doing these write-ups about awesome folks and gnawsome yolks. Because I’m writing them over the course of a year, I find out about new artists all the time, so I ain’t never gonna run out of people to hoot and holler about - it’s my favourite part of this!
Talking of artists that I’ve just found out about, I wanted to feature Daniel Shaffer as this week’s Monger of Funk ‘cos his work makes my ears turn into eyes and my eyes turn into speedboats. All in a good way of course. I stumbled across Dan’s work a week or two ago, and since then I’ve been snorkelling around his portfolio for ages drinking everything in like a huge mug of warm Tang. His characters are fresh, and his colour schemes are juicier than a massive flask full of piping hot juice.
Usually I have got a pretty clear idea of which image I’m gonna use for each feature, but it took me longer than a pair of lungs to choose my favourite pieces of Dan’s work. I’m a massive fan, and you’ll be too when you rub your eyes over his illustrations. Don’t take it from me though, go and check him out right this second. Come on, stop what you’re doing - put down that sponge-cake and go and check him out. And give me that sponge-cake. Hell yeah!
