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.
The premise of Vahram Muratyan’s Paris vs New York: A tally of two cities is to present a “friendly visual match between those two cities, as seen by a Parisian-based-and-lover on New York: details, cliches and contradictions.” Muratyan, who is the co-founder of art direction and graphic design studio ViiZ, has created a blog that is not only visually striking, but also charming, witty and a little bit cheeky. The juxtaposition of the various icons of the two cities and the details that make up their urban identity is explored through subjects as diverse as bread (baguette vs. bagel), the weather and pests (Parisian pigeon vs. New York rat). I can’t wait to see this project develop further.
