Screw prints, I want a pennant, by The Peoples Pennant, designs by a couple known dudes.
Past couple of months I’ve come across a few illustrations on Vanity Fair.com which I’ve really loved. One was of Rick Perry, another of Charlie Sheen, and for that reason I never thought to compare illustrators. The other day I came across another, this time Mitt Romney. All these works were by Andre Carrilho. He might be old news nor lacking work, but I’ve become obsessed with his style and I didn’t even know it. He’s had work in Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, The Independent, and Billboard Magazine. His latest was an illustration for the final essay by Christopher Hitchens. If he made any of these prints I’d buy one, I’d buy them all, so maybe it’s a good thing he doesn’t.
These are a few more of my favorites. Visit his Flickr for an endless library of his work.
Great ongoing beer series by Dave Murray. Favorite has to be the PBR above.
Great prints by Two Arms Inc. of the two greatest hoods in all of Brooklyn. Add these to the long (growing) list of prints to buy.
Fun, clever and simple work by David Schwen. These effective and (what I plan on being) quick pieces are things I miss from school and hope to accomplish a few of each month. It might not be a project with an amazing concept, but it gets your mind to switch gears from the normal schedule.
It’s like driving through the middle-of-no-where Virgina.
The sun up at the crack of dawn.
Typography making me hungry.
I’ve always been a big fan of the X Games (Winter and Summer). I actually went to the first X Games in Newport, Rhode Island with my Dad when it was split between Newport and Providence, Rhode Island. Since then a lot has changed. Big sponsors, big ratings, and now big design.
During the few days in Aspen, Target hosts all the athletes in their Cahlet. So they have Senior Art Director Aaron Melander leading the way with some great looking work for this years 2011 games, or better known as Winter X 15.
Great collection of mixes known designers listen to while they work. Shared on Designers.mx. Names like Mark Weaver, Micah Kandros, and Phil Coffmam. Of course they do their own cover art.
Probably the best mix which I’ve listened from start to finish.
Reblogged Post by Mackenzie Schmidt: Aussie James Gulliver Hancock is attempting to draw every buildings in New York. Now while my first reaction was: this is gonna be like Sufjan Stevens doing an album for every state, I’m being led on. I quickly decided it doesn’t much matter because not only are the illustrations thoroughly enjoyable with an element of neighborhood pride, but homeboy’s making some progress.
The illustration medium—from pen sketches to full-color, to sharpie—and subject matter—from the empire state building to ambiguous fire escapes— also vary pretty significantly. My favorite diversion recently was a series of snow-bedecked cars.
Love these figures by Illustrator Christian Montenegro. These are a couple of my favorites, and wish he’d keep doing more and more.
