Extra! Extra!

I LOVE a newspaper-inspired design. I really do. I love them so much that I’ve executed two already, and who’s to say I won’t do it again?

Artists have been incorporating newspapers into their artwork for centuries. Just look at what Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Marine Hugonnier, have done, and what Sho Shibuya is currently doing.

Explore the tag “newspaper” on INABC to see more like these.
