If you live in Atlanta and use MySpace or Facebook you’ve probably seen illustrations like this on a friend’s profile and have asked, “What’s the deal with those drawings?”
Well, I don’t know all the details, but I do know the illustrations are by Dosa Kim for his Apparatus ATL project. If you check out the Apparatus ATL website or MySpace page you’ll see a slew of Atlantan’s illustrated similarly. These people consist of promoters, drink pushers, club owners, musicians, bouncers, hipsters, store owners, photographers, DJs, and of course… everyone’s favorite graphic designers.
I know there’s a possibility of an art show, a multimedia presentation, and even vinyl toys created around the ATL scene. I also know the project is launching in September. Dosa’s camp has asked me to come by this week to discuss how I can help with the launch so I’ll have more to report soon.
