The Wenkman Cometh

Denise (who's doing a giveaway here!) sent me the link to this artist because she actually thought I would like this work. Really, Denise? Well, in point of fact, I don't like it....I LOVE it!!! From Keegan Wenkman (also a former studiomate of Denise's...hello six degrees of separation ;) !) this is really beautiful work. Sadly Keegan is clearly a bit lazy sitting around doing almost nothing except managing to do illustration, fine art, posters, packaging & logos, a website, an Etsy shop, a press & bindery, letterpress, among other things! Needless to hats off to Keegan!

This is the artist's statement on [one of] his site[s]....

"The work I produce is of thoughtful, selfless, greedy, raving, amazing, botched, happy, needy, revolutionary people, objects, ideas, animals, and insects. These are what I love and don’t want to forget. A stew of moments seen, heard, loved and missed; on the list of ingredients it would read “for growing more mature and wiser, be brazen and na├»ve.“"

Succinct and articulate? Keegan? Stop. Envy isn't always one of my more attractive traits. Oh nevermind...keep it coming!


  1. awwwwwwesome. love it! i will check out the websites, thanks!

  2. This is gorgeous! The style is so quirky, weird and fun! Love it!!

  3. oh god, i'm DYING this work is so fantastic i can't stand it! what a find. and i can relate to the feeling of jealousy-- but it's so awesome that you can't stay jealous for long, right?!


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.
