Blumoo talks with us about the cosmic, the joy of freelance, and deciding on graphic design.

Blumoo is a creator of beautiful posters and record sleeves, and he recently took part in #36DaysOfType, making amazing typographic illustrations in his unmistakable, colourful and carefree style - and releasing a separate free font, Experimental BM. His work makes heavy use of silhouettes of hands and faces, alongside dripping psychedelic gooeyness, smoking and swirling patterns, and occasional nods to a y2k style digital aesthetic. Prints Against Poverty has pinned his work as "interpretations of the  universe, the cosmic, and the abstract" - and it's a lovely interpretation - upbeat, optimistic, and explorative. The level of detail that Blumoo...

Xtian Miller speaks with us about growing up as a creative, pushing through creative block, and confidence.

Lately we were fortunate enough to add an Xtian Miller print to our Editions series.

Maria-Inès Chevallier talks colour palettes, Guatemala, and music.

Last week, a print by the wonderfully talented Maria-Inès Chevallier was added to Grafik Editions' online store. She took a moment to talk to us about her inspirations and working process. Maria draws beautiful emotive bodies, and as she spoke to me about her Guatemalen ancestry, it made that Central American inspiration plain to see. In the colour palettes and shapes of her work there is an air of celebration and joy, with a refreshing, tactile authenticity. From a look through her Instagram, it feels very clear that she loves what she makes. There is a certain happiness that just radiates...

Jo Minor talks to us about his illustration journey, inspirations and working process.

Jo Minor is an illustrator of very beautiful, intricate, puzzling works. He's created art for some big guns like Playboy, and has made some awesome promotional posters for DIY performances, concerts and comedy shows. Jo uses shade and gradient in a masterful manner, to create an eerie portrayal of time and space. His art feels contemplative and metaphysical, whilst remaining humble and understated. Jo took the time to tell us about his introduction to the art world, love of horror films and artistic process.

David Mascha is a Vienna based artist designer, creating beautiful letterforms, colourful conceptual art, and gorgeous geometrics. His work has a precise and almost clinical level of finesse and detail, whilst maintaining an eccentric and fun edginess. We were blessed to be able to catch David for a chat about his inspirations, next artistic ventures, and dream commissions. 

You make incredible letterforms. What first sparked your interest in typography?

Everything actually started with graffiti, that was at the end of the 90s. Even as a child I was always fascinated when...
