I noticed my dour friend Darcel updated with a new photo and it’s looking like he’s not doing so well this Halloween. He’s missing an arm, he’s sprouted some rather scraggily white hairs, he may have consumed a human skull and his eye is definitely in zombie mode. Oh, and I just noticed he’s missing a leg as well! Hopefully he gets better soon as I’m sure he has many more adventures to embark upon.
My friends over at Secret Headquarters, the best comic shop in Los Angeles, are releasing a set of posters inspired by the comic book The Walking Dead in honor of it television debut on AMC tomorrow night. The posters were inspired by shooting range targets and feature the artwork of Jordan Crane, Lisa Hanawalt, Jon Vermilyea and Johnny Ryan. I think this is such a fun idea, I mean, I already love how shooting range posters look so having 4 talented artists creating around that theme is awesome. If you want one of these for yourself click here.
Finding new applications for older materials is always nice when it’s new and unique, and these ceramic tops for Rubin Álvarez’s line of yogurts is exactly that. Designed by Zoo Studio these yogurt containers are protected a rather standard looking cardboard tube with a lid which is sealed by some kind of ceramic top that’s been air dried. I also love the way you use the string to breakthrough the ceramic to open the jar, I bet that would be so much fun to do, like when you open a paper FedEx envelope.
This is such a unique way of packaging an item, especially something so simple as a jar of yogurt. Nonetheless it’s a remarkable idea that I’ve never seen used before.
I got this in my inbox and had to share it. It’s always great to get random wonderful art, especially from someone as talented as Mr. Ryan Cox is. I was kind of bummed that this was the only Happy Halloween piece of art I got this year!
Based in Portland, artist Brett Superstar has a ridiculous last name and a bunch of great paintings posted on his blog. While only two of the paintings are space-related, the rest are just as quirky and delightful. He’s rather terse when it comes to describing himself, saying only “I love food, sleep, and Makers on the rocks.” This doesn’t help me tell you about him… other than I think he may be an alcoholic (or just dressed as one for Halloween.)
Not sure what you should be for Hellaween? Maybe you can take inspiration from Superstar’s Scared Sheep.
PS: Honestly, it was hard to resist the urge to post halloween, cutesy photos of dogs dressed as astronauts.
