Muchísimas gracias to Color + Design Blog for bringing this stunning illustrator to my attention. Alberto Cerriteño is a Mexican designer currently based in Portland, Oregon where he works as a Senior Creative Director for Curiosity Group. He sites his influences as "lowbrow artists and contemporary surrealists." To me, his work feels a bit "Ren & Stimpy" meets Barry McGee meets Tim Burton meets Jim Flora (thanks for that introduction Alison). Don't be thrown off by the overwhelming amount of bluish hues here. He works in all shades...I was just drawn to this particular color story this morning (as I am nearly every morning).
