Eric Nyquist is an American artist working in Los Angeles. After graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, he began a career as a working artist and illustrator. His body of work includes meticulous drawings, paintings, and collages that merge the organic and the industrial.

Nyquist chooses the line as his tool in creating dense narratives so detailed they straddle the representative and the abstract. His work disrupts stereotypes and forces the viewer to go beyond simply “looking” at things. Each drawing asks us to see analytically and not just physically.

In a technological age of rapid image making, Nyquist uses classical methods to create contemporary results. From etching to lithography, he upholds the craft of print-making while expanding the possibilities of the medium. The printing process informs his drawings—as he arranges layers and screens of color and texture into each piece.

FastCompany calls it Smurfberrygate, we call it WTF?

One, we are at war. For no reason really, but we are at war. Unemployment is hovering at about 9%, and the number is probably higher but a good percentage of people have just given up, the jobs are not coming back, and our country has completely lost its footing as the #1 nation in the world, and Representative Edward Market, a Democrat from Massachusetts, wants to start a Congressional probe into a iPhone app called “Smurf Village.”

“I am concerned about how these applications are being promoted and delivered to consumers, particularly with respect to children, who are unlikely to understand the ramifications of in-app purchases,” Market said. (via FastCompany).

Apparently, an eight-year-old Madison from Rockville, MD, wanted to decorate her little mushroom cottage in her favorite iPhone game, Smurfs’ Village. What this budding interior decorator didn’t realize, at that time, was that she was racking up a gargantuan bill in the process. Her mom’s next bill from iTunes was for $1,400.

So Market wants to get to the body of it. Wonder if the mom has a job? He can work on his corporate buddies to work that shit out, too.
