Adams Extraordinaire

Obesity Can Kill / L'obésité tue
Balloons/Les Ballons
Steve Adams's work is something I've been a fan of for a while (the picture in this post is one of his), and it's a bit hard not to be a fan, to be honest- the appeal of his work lies in the fact that his pretty, gritty artwork isn't just lovely to look at, it's also more often than not bitingly clever (I think I can safely say no one who's picked up a newspaper in the last three weeks will fail to appreciate it). Which isn't surprising, considering that the publications he's contributed to include the Wall Street Journal and the Harvard Business Review...do check out more of his work at his site, it's well worth a look.

I love it.

The sun one reminds me of the Police song "King of Pain."

The general feel of this work reminds me of some of Magritte's work.

Fascinating! I agree with ENC, there's a Magritte vibe.
