Richard Perez

31 Mar

Richard Perez is a designer and illustrator based in San Francisco, CA. If I recall correctly, I stumbled on his flickr site while looking for some inspiration one day. After spending over an hour looking through his work, I realized that I was extremely inspired and that I suck at design and illustration (joke…I’m awesome. another joke…JOKE SANDWICH!). Homeboy has over 500 pieces of original design and illustration in his photostream. Then, there is his dribbble page with even more work samples. All of Richard’s pieces are strong, seem to have some sort of back story,  and, in turn, have tons of depth (and maybe a personal memory attached to them, too).

Most of his work has a certain vintage feel to it, which I really enjoy. The textures and color choices are wonderful and help with achieving that look and style. Richard also seems to have a fondness for geometric shapes. It’s amazing how awesome something can look even though it’s made from circles and squares.

Although his Skinny Ships site is “at the laundromat right now getting all cleaned up,” he updates his previously mentioned flicker and dribbble pages pretty regularly. Richard also started a tumblr page to showcase his and other creative peoples’ illustrations of their cats. He calls it meowoodle. Very clever.

Oh, Richard…my cat Sam (a.k.a. Samboni) says hi to Buffins & Tibbles. *kittah wave
