New York artist Timothy Goodman’s wall murals combine modern living with the rustic comfort of hand drawn fonts and a loose illustrative style. For Timothy, whether its the walls of a hotel or the surface of a car, large spaces are an ideal medium to set one’s imagination free. Despite having only one go at his job with no undo button, there’s a casual, even playful ease that this work exudes. The combination of penmanship and confident doodling in stark black and white creates a surprisingly rich texture as a backdrop.
There’s an unmistakably human touch to the renderings which adds warmth and magnetism to the medium. The execution evokes a charm that predates desktop publishing, where sign painters were the printers and dreamers of custom fonts and graphics. It’s great to see this proud tradition continue in this Age of Automation we live in.All images courtesy of Timothy Goodman All images courtesy of Timothy Goodman
