Mike Perry   Cultural Hand Job inspiration

Mike Perry is compelled by the ways in which the hand-drawn informs and deepens contemporary visual culture. Perry works regularly for a number of editorial and commercial clients including Apple, The New York Times, Dell, Target, Urban Outfitters. Most days, he can be found working away in his Brooklyn-based studio, ceaselessly mixing colors, pulling prints, building sculptures and exercising his belief in the transformative power of making things.

In addition to his commercial, non-profit, and art work, Perry has also published extensively. His first book, Hand Job, published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2006, focuses specifically on the relevance and beauty of hand-drawn type in the digital age. Over and Over: A Catalog of Hand-drawn Patterns (Fall 2008), explores the similarly nuanced texture, humor, and elegance of illustrative patterns. A third book, entitled Pulled: A Catalog of Screen Printing, was released in March 2011. Check out more of his extensive output at mikeperrystudio.com and then go buy some awesome artwork from his shop.
