If you're not already familiar with his hand-drawn type from his awesome book "Hand Job," Mike Perry is a Brooklyn-based artist who makes drawings, paintings, illustrations, magazines, newspapers, and clothing, as well as teaches whenever possible. He has worked with clients such as the New York Times Magazine, Dwell, Microsoft Zune, Urban Outfitters and Zoo York, to name but a few.
Doodling away night and day, Perry creates new typefaces and sundry graphics that inevitably evolve into his new work, exercising the great belief that the generating of piles is the sincerest form of creative process. His latest show of original items will feature a mixture screen-prints, original drawings, and watercolors.
In addition to creating illustrations for others, Perry has his own magazine entitled Untitled, which features his current work and interests and is in its third edition.
