I love to hate you.

Mike Perry is totally one of those people that you love to hate. No, I'm not bein' a hater y'all, jus' keepin' it rawl. You know he's one of those uber-wonders that makes you feel unbearably lazy and you're all, like, "whatever" and then you go through his site ("Midwest Is Best") and you're all, like, "damn, he's awesome".

An amazing and prolific illustrator/designer, Matt runs a small design studio in Brooklyn, NY that recently celebrated its 1 year anniversary. How this is possible with his work ethic is beyond me since he's only managed to work with Urban Outfitters doing web and print design, done a multitude of illustrations both professional and personal, created a line of wallpapers, written his first book titled "Hand Job" (about hand-done typography, people), and is already in works with a second. What did I do this year? Uh, walked the dog, made copious amounts of coffee, a few batches of cookies, and thought about what art to make. Then Matt has to go and get all in-yer-face lazy and start his own magazine called Untitled a…. Why? Probly 'cause he got all bored n' stuff.

(I heart you Mike Perry. I mean hate, yeah that's it, hate. Sigh.)


  1. Isn't he though, Rachel. Don't know whether to be inspired or depressed? May as well take the high road.

    Thanks for your comment.

  2. Could be inspired... or go back to bed. Hmmm.

  3. Hey Cheeky Beaks! Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh, don't tempt me with cat naps...gotta stay motivated if not inspired!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I always appreciate your thoughts. Your comment will appear as soon as I can publish it.

p.s. - Contrary opinions or constructive criticism are also fine but "The Bedlam" doesnt' serve as a platform for random (or anonymous) acts of offensiveness. Rude? Deleted.
