Artist Gordon Holden Shares His Take on Summer

Free Art and Then Some

They (Greeks, Shakespeare, our tarot reader) say strange things happen on the solstices.

Which makes today perfect for Gordon Holden, a definitively eccentric Brooklyn-based artist. He’s created an exclusive sun-soaked scene entitled “Outside Waiting Room” to celebrate the start of the new season. Print it out and hand it to a co-worker on your way to the beach.

Holden, a Connecticut native, is an avid surfer (of waves and the occasional couch) and digital artist with a devious sense of humor. We’re still trying to figure the man out, but his brand of cerebral, visual imperfection is refreshing. (Mark Twain and Hunter S. Thompson are influences.)

Snap up zines, T-shirts, postcards, stickers, and other pop-culture-infused bibelots from his online store or ask him to custom-print work from his site.

That should keep things weird well past summer.
