Lazy Post No. 7: Patrick Hruby

October 29, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

CHarper_MemoryGameWe’ve had my sister and her two youngest staying with us and we’ve been playing Charley Harper’s memory card game seemingly non stop since they arrived…

And bought me it for Christmas several years ago now and after we’d marveled at its loveliness and played it a few times, it ended up in pretty much pristine condition on the book shelves… Until my little niece said she wanted to play a game and we remembered it…

Anyway, my sister fell in love with it and rushed to Amazon as she just had to have one. Whilst looking around, we came across the wonderful work of Patrick Hruby who also has a memory card game made by the same company, Ammo (where the work of artist Alexander Girard can also be found, a definite contender for a future post).

Patrick Hruby is a Californian based freelance illustrator and designer who has an “insatiable appetite for color.” His work has a naive, pseudo vintage quality that appeals to my sense of aesthetic, although I would guess that it is made using thoroughly modern techniques and software.

Bright colours, big shapes, dragons and space ships, and with an undeniable nod to the geometric stylings of the great Charley Harper, what more could you ask for in an illustration…
