Another great show being held on Saturday is Jeff Claassen’s ‘Lovesick’ opening at Alpha Cult. Jeff’s work is a beautiful blend of mixed media elements and styles: illustration over a graffiti edge. Thematically, he explores just about everything, and his design aesthetic always seems to match so perfectly. His characters are whimsical, and fantastically framed by his use of bold color blends and stencil art. But the “cuteness” comes tongue-in-cheek; as there is almost always a note of sadness, confusion, or unrequited love which makes the work so alluring.

These are just a few teaser pictures of what you can expect from the show. If you’d like to see more ‘behind-the-scenes’ look of how everything was put together, check out Jeff’s Flickr.
