Artist spotlight: Glenn Jones (GLENNZ)

Artist spotlight: Glenn Jones (GLENNZ)

TIME to feature another fantastic artist as part of my ongoing “Artist Spotlight” series. I have a little added motivation for covering this particular artist this time around, but I’ll get to that shortly.

First, let me introduce to you a damn talented Kiwi (not often you get to say that – haha – Aussie joke) – Glenn Jones of the wildly popular Glennz Tees website. A graphic designer and illustrator from Auckland, New Zealand, Glenn’s unique style of line and block colour satirical illustrations are available for download as iPhone wallpapers and can also be purchased on a range of Tshirts, mouse pads, laptop skins and more.

There’s literally dozens of great colours and designs to choose from, but here are a few of my favourites.

Glenn also runs a generous, daily gift certificate giveaway where one lucky Twitter follower of his account @glennztees has the chance to pick up $30 worth of gear featuring his designs.

This brings me to the “added motivation” I mentioned from the intro.

Today, I was the lucky winner!!!

I’ve been hanging off on posting this entry hoping that this day would come, and it’s taken months of entering the daily draws to make it happen! So, I have narrowed my favourite prints down to four from which I would like you, my devoted readers, to help me pick the final design. For a better look at the specific designs, click on any of the t-shirt images below.

    The ‘Called for Help’ one is pretty clever. That’s my fave.

    I’d agree with Ms Behan. Gotta be ‘Called for Help’.

    Evolution, maybe?? x

    Evolution. Might be an Aussie sense of humor thing.
