Ingela P Arrhenius is a Swedish illustrator who loves the aesthetics of the 50′s and 60′s. She works frequently with OMM Design, producing an exciting range of fun and colorful products. These include everything from salt & pepper cellars to mugs; as well as toys, prints and puzzles. I particularly like her range of plates and I can imagine that they’ll appeal to small kids just as much as they appeal to this big kid!
I’m a big fan of the work of Irish/Swedish duo M&E. The pair have been working together for almost 10 years and in that time they’ve produced some really fantastic work ranging from album artwork and music videos (you might recall their amazing Snake & Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band’s “Black Egg” video which we featured on the site last September), to art direction, photography & set design. They’ve got a great number of skills and together they’re a wonderful creative talent.
Too Old To Be New, Too New To Be Classic is the name of a 13-minute documentary about the history of independent record label and production team DFA. Released last month to mark their 12 year anniversary, it’s a fun film which paints a great portrait of one of the decades most iconic labels.
Based in Tokyo, illustrator and graphic designer Kimiaki Yaegashi is responsible for some of the strangest and craziest images I think I’ve seen all month. Bikini babes, cute pandas and delicious pizza-slices all flood Kimiaki’s imagination and pour into his work! Part sexual-surrealism and part adorable pop-art, these images are fantastic fun!
Kaskaskia is a small town in Randolph County, Illinois. Back in 1818, when Illinois became the 21st U.S. state, the town served as the state’s capital and during the 18th century its population was roughly around 7,000. Today, it has only 14 residents. Ben Geier has set about documenting this town and his images present a haunting portrait of a town transformed by floods.
