isaac lin, megawords

isaac, philadelphia 2008  (photograph by me)

isaac t. lin is an incredibly talented and amazing individual. he is one of my favorite artists and probably one of the nicest dudes you will ever meet.

he is having a solo show soon and asked a number of his friends to donate a photograph with which he could incorporate one of his paintings onto. i was honored to be asked to do this and am really excited to see what the end result will be. he is known for doing these intricately designed and intensely kaleidoscopic murals and paintings, ranging from huge (like the mural he did in the above photograph for the megawords storefront project) to rather small (like the photograph below)
