There are some very interesting posters coming out of Tyler Stout. I love his take on movie posters. In my book, anyone who designs a new poster for THE BIG LEBOWSKI is alright by me. Anyhow, see for your self. Oh, and he also designs toys.
Lakewood rocks. And I’m not saying this simply because I live there (technically, I live in Gastonwood/Coranado Hills, but that’s too long, so I just say Lakewood), but because it is the best area in Dallas. Trees, lakes, parks, shops, restaraurants, all near by and plentyful. However, I think the best part of the Lakewood area in Dallas it’s its people. Cool, hip, easy-going, fun. Anyhow, I’ve been designing a poster for the area. I have two designs and I’m contemplating printing one, silk screened of course. Would love to know your thoughts on which one I should print.
One of my favorite artist has taken over the Bristol Museum. In collaboration with Bansky, The Bristol Museum will hold an exclusive gallery show, displaying more than 70 Bansky pieces ranging from graffiti art, animatronics, installations, stencil art, sculptures and sensory displays.
Banksy vs Bristol Museum will run from 13 June until 31 August 2009 and is free to the public. Be sure not to miss what could be the largest official public display of Banksy’s work ever held.
When was the last you time you used one of those cheap blue Bic pens? Me? Who knows. Even if you do remember using these relics, I doubt you turned anything worth showing, even if it’s only to your grandma. Not Juan Francisco Casas. This Spaniard artist uses these Bic pens to create some truly remarkable pieces. Large format, photo-realistic gems. Pretty amazing. If you really wanna know more about and see some of his work, you can check out his myspace page. Only if you really want to though. On a related note, check out Designboom.
For any of you getting married soon, take a look at these invites. Clean, modern, simple. Plus, I love the letterpress printing on them. Designed by Jamey Erickson principal over at Sevnthsin in Minneapolis. Thanks to Beast Peices for the blog. On a related note, please look over at some samples from Studio On Fire’s letterpress work. Lovely.
I found this set of paintings interesting. By Josh Keyes.
