John Contino is an Alphastructaesthetitologist.Whatever that is, he’s doing a good job being one.
Wow…those are beautiful.
Almost makes me want to become an Alphastructaesthetitologist… ;)
Congrats on being Freshly Pressed!
I love typography. Cape Horn graphic very pleasing.
That’s very creative! Love it.
Intriguing work — I love how the words complement the graphics…especially the top one. Beautiful script!
These are really gorgeous!
I really like the feel of these. They have a very pirate-y feel.
I would love to know how he prints these – they look fabulous!
They’re great and – I always liked the look of an Edwardian style advertisement ;)
Thanks for sharing John Contino, of whom I had never heard
Beautifully complex. The whale has the grace of Arab calligraphy. Nicely done.
awesome creations.. It’s really creative.. :-)
Very cool artwork! Thanks for sharing and congrats on being freshly pressed!
Wonderful. Just brilliant, actually. Loved it. Thank you for posting.
Thanks for stopping by :)
Beautiful illustrations. They have such a great 19th century feel to them.
LOVE your work.
The text on the whiskey bottle is lovely :)
i ilke !
Love these. PDC (pretty darn cool) Kind of reminds me of the illustrations in an old Sears catalogue or old Harper’s Weekly c. late 1800s.
I read the hand- please tell us more.
These remind me of very old newspaper block prints.
These are amazing. “Alphastructaesthetitologist” and I should say this is a very new word for me! I am searching for now. Congratulations on being Freshly Pressed. Your works so interesting and so nice. Thank you, with my love, nia
Those are awesome!
The last one looks like the cover of a book i love, “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” by Jonathan Sanfran Foer. i wonder which came first.
It does and I love that cover design!
How many other alphastructaesthetitologists are there? You may have found the one profession with no competition.
cool cool cool cool cool cool cool!
Love the “hand” the best. Something very 19th century fringe about it…
Really nice, loved them!
Awesome, especially the top 2.
I can’t begin to pronounce what you are but it is cool.
This artwork is reminiscent of yesteryear. I was pleasantly surprised to learn he is a contemporary artist. Thanks for posting these. His art would look great on Sangarian Techno Tees.
I would just call him a letterer or typographer, much easier than.. whatever that is hahaha.. beautiful work!
you make me want to create. Thank you so much
Yay, glad you’re inspired. That’s what I want this blog to do for people :)
Great work dude…
okay, nice one///
Wow, really amazing. I love the whiskey bottle.
Holy smokes, these are cool. Especially that first one with the wonderful letterforms and the whale. That guy’s awesome.
Really lovely with stacks of character. thanks for pointing out his work.
these are beautiful! i like the vintage screen printed look, and fonts/typefaces are a weakness of mine. where did you find these? are they available for purchase anywhere?
I’m not sure if they are for sale or not
sweet stuff! I am a follower!
Amazing work. :)
Great work, love the style
