Javier Perez (not to be confused with another artist of the same name) is a multi-talented artist currently based in Ecuador. He is an illustrator, graphic designer, art director, and photographer. He also does typography, branding, and awesome bits of animation. One of his most popular series in his Instagram account is an ode to the little everyday objects we take for granted. With a few strokes of his pen, he has turned a pair of pliers into a dueling cowboy, a paperclip into a tank, a penny into a full portrait of Abraham Lincoln, and a handful of nails into a porcupine. One of my favorites is a harmless stapler he turned into an alien Predator.
