Ghostshrimp is a guy named Dan. Dan is from my homeland, New Hampshire. In the past, I avoided Dan at parties and avoided his illustrations because of an overwhelmingly large and present community of hipsters that jock his style relentlessly. Tired of hearing about how so many people “knew Ghostshrimp” (not liked his art, just knew him), I subconsciously boycotted homie’s work for the past few years.
I don’t live in NH anymore. I live in NC. And no one here talks about anything from NH. Hell, no one anywhere outside of New England talks about NH. So here’s some work from Ghostshrimp. It’s a lot easier to like when you don’t draw an immediate association between it and nerds at house parties. The relevance of this backstory? There isn’t any, I guess. Look at the illustrations.
Unwavering style is my new favorite thing. I feel like 75% of the artists portfolios that I look at have two or three disciplines and only one is good. So, hat’s off Ghostshrimp for doing everything you can with a single aesthetic. I like it.
If associating Ghostshrimp with me and this obnoxious post hasn’t turned you off, you can see more (a lot more) of his work (and buy some stuff) at his site. Do it!
