'Live Life Sunny Side Up' by Jeremyville is a collection of that the artist would like to see as public service announcement posters around town.
First of all, I don't think the cover to this book does it justice. The art is colorful and cheerful and the messages are affirming. There are messages that chide, but in a bright, friendly way. We are encouraged to pay attention to today and spend more time with people and less time with our devices. We are encouraged to keep going, and to create by moonlight, and to imagine different tomorrows. This would be a fun book of perforated postcards that could be sent or tacked up. If it ever became a guerilla art movement, it would probably bring the kind of smiles that flash mobs did a few years back.
I think if someone had described the book to me I wouldn't have given it a shot, but I kind of stumbled into it and I really enjoyed it. I immediately recognized Jeremyville's style from some wallpaper I used and from some t-shirts on the Threadless.com site. His style is bright and a little weird, but completely fun. This would be a great gift book or something to leave out on a coffee table to look through when you're feeling down.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this really fun ebook.
