Mike Perry is pretty much the coolest guy ever. I first encountered him when I bought the book Hand Job in which he compiled artists who work with hand drawn typography. Not only is the book beautifully produced and full of immense inspiration, its called Hand Job. Who wouldn’t want that on their bookshelf?
Another one of his books soon found its way into my life (present from LO <3) called Over and Over, a compilation of hand drawn patterns. So good. Along with producing cool books, his website has tons of great stuff including illustrations, prints, photos, you name it. He has also worked on ad campaigns for Starbucks, Mac, and Nike. Basically anything he touches is infused with a distinct illustration style which is quirky, honest and interesting.
