the king of pattern

1

d*s reader august sent along the most fantastic link yesterday and i'm thanking him publically for opening my eyes to another amazing local brooklyn designer. dan funderburgh is an artist living in brooklyn who specializes in pattern and print design. dan has created patterns for clients as diverse as ecko, the future perfect and waiting room magazine. recently interviewed on pingmag.com, funderburgh explained that he works for a diverse group of companies but would love to start spending more time on custom installations (like the riviera gallery in brooklyn) or translating his work into wallpaper. i think that wallpaper would sell like hotcakes so for anyone out there who works in wallpaper manufacturing- call dan!

in his interview dan described that to him, "good patternmaking revolves around a good concept", not just great illustrations or color (though he acknowledges that good color choice can really save a so-so pattern). i found myself spending all my free time today looking through his phenomenal collection, so click here to check it out for yourself. it's really spectactular work and i'm so appreciative of august's email- it's always a great week when you're introduced to such a great artist living in your neighborhood. [thanks, august!]

[ps: don't forget, we'll be chatting about project runway tonight...and the inevitable "kicked-off" episode]

as a city girl i have long tracked and considered many a manhole cover (including applauding karim rashid's design) and how to make art of their individual 'cancases' - dan has done a fabulous job with his pattern - i would LOVE a shirt dress made of it!
