Pattern Pulp

Artist Profile: Micah Lidberg


This morning’s tweet by Deanne Cheuk brought us to the homepage of creative wunderkind, Micah Lidberg.  Lidberg’s portfolio looks as if he’s been working at industry standards for over a decade, an impressive feat, considering he’s only 24. Nearly every drawing looks like it’s out of the playbook of Where the Wild Things Are, only infused with colorful, random twists that push the genre 10 leaps forward. When asked by Jessica Goldfond, of The Shiny Squirrel, what inspires him, Lidberg’s answer reminds us why you should trust your creative gut, “I’ve only had one memorable epiphany. A professor I had in England, Japser Goodall, told a bunch of us students to draw whatever we wanted to draw. It sounds silly that that sparked my epiphany, but it did the trick. I’ve been drawing furry dinosaurs and deranged clouds ever since.”
