Jeremy Novy is a local Milwaukee artist most known for his koi fish that appear on concrete in Riverwest, the East Side and downtown. His other work is a celebration of gay iconography displaying drag queens, mild pornography and collaged risque elements. His work is loud, proud and won’t let you forget about it. The top of his website links to a gallery of images with a button “look at it!” and a spock hand sign. I found this hilarious and it definitely persuaded me to click through. The top of his home page is divided by art, about, press and shop, His artwork is categorized into street art, mural, outside, inside, wall, koi and queer. His resume is directly on his website in addition to his shop. The bright blocks of color, disturbed blocky font and playful language hold my attention and make me exhale air quickly.
Mr Doodle is an artist from England who draws crazy characters and pets in a cartoon-like style that fills all the white space. His work has been featured in many murals and galleries. His website is very plain, all black and white basic template. The home page just includes videos and 4 tabs for about, contact, instagram and shop. All of these pages have very little content on them and the only apparent link to social media is the instagram pop-out window. The language from the about page comes off as his manager writing for him, instead of him editing the site himself.
Notes on Todd Mrozinski
Artwork is separated by medium first, then by topic. All the images are arranged on the page to look like an abstract gallery. It feels very purposeful yet random. He has painted clouds fifteen (15) times. He really likes clouds.
