Siggi Eggertsson

Talk about a new spin on the old family portrait!

Icelandic illustrator/designer, Siggi Eggertsson, successfully combines unusual geometric shapes and muted colors to create refined abstractions. He has an impressive collection of work, ranging from posters and type to mosaics made from his collection of 20,000 basketball cards from the 90s. See more on his website, www.vanillusaft.com.

Great work! I love the idea of going out and draw landscapes on your computer. A modern day bohemian… : )

I really enjoy the colors in these illustrations. It reminds me of the shape toys I played with as a kid in math class.

late pass!

I know, I know…old Siggi prints, but still good work!

Grant,
what kind of toys did you have in your math class? I wish I could of went to your school.

We played with base ten blocks and tangrams.

Hey Grace, nice find! My tastes don’t necessarily lean toward this family portrait, but I like some of his other stuff.
And who could ever say something bad about an Icelandic Illustrator/Designer anyway!? ;-)
He is from my Grandmother’s family’s hometown! :-) It’s a small world….
