Even though I design goods for sale and I also host sample sales, oddly, I don't shop much at all. I can go for months without buying anything for myself. I do plenty of window shopping--I'll visit sites, put a bunch of stuff in the shopping cart but never follow through with the checkout button. I've done that with this particular piece, Ian's Johnson's Limited Edition Charlie Parker "Ornithology" print found at Park Life. As a post-Modern Economy treat for myself, I finally purchased it last night for $140. Ian Johnson is a San Francisco artist. His portraits, mostly of jazz musicians, are so mesmerizing. I enjoy how he mixes detailed drawings with graphic patterns. The contrast and color are amazing, too. Below is more of his work.
