i'm in love with texas-born, brooklyn-based illustrator and designer chris silas neal. chris seems to be a man of many talents, as his work ranges between painting, illustration, video, editorial, and book design, and despite the often commercial nature of his projects they still retain a unique and personal hand. i particularly like his sense of color, attention to characters, and hand-drawn typography, all with a modern but slightly retro-inspired vibe. also, he did the fantastic design for the kate spade video campaign, navy, seen above. consider me a fan! learn more about chris here.
