My wife’s 6th, 7th and 8th grade art students are hand-drawing Valentines Day cards for every student in their middle school. She brought home a batch the other day and they were so charming and inspiring I decided to scan a bunch and put them up on Flickr. Yes, some of them are upside down. [...]
Sorry for the so-so photo, but here’s a look at the print I hung in the Type 4 Type’s Sake show at Rodan vs. Griffith back in late May. It’s a metallic silver ink on translucent vellum. The show featured lots of cool stuff from people like Andy Mueller, Chris Bettig, Katsuo Design, Michael Coleman, [...]
Green Works cleaning products, makers of “natural cleaners,” put together this short about English artist Paul “Moose” Curtis, whom you may know as the guy that creates “reverse graffiti” by cleaning away parts of dirty dirty surfaces. Interesting to see he uses power washers and stencils. It’s directed by Doug Pray, well known for pop [...]

Interestingly, Schrader kept his collection of over eight thousand pristinely archived lobby cards a secret! Vanity Fair has a short article detailing their discovery, and the collection [...]
MOCA’s Pacific Designer Center location opened a fantastic show last weekend that I can’t wait to see:
Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas traces the graphic art made by Emory Douglas while he worked as minister of culture for the Black Panther Party from 1967 until its discontinuation in the early 1980s. Douglas’s powerful [...]
If you’re a designer and you haven’t lusted after Wacom’s insane LCD-based Cintiq 21UX tablet, then you probably just haven’t seen it yet. For most of us, the $2,500 asking price was the deal killer, but it looks like they’re releasing a 12″ version come November and it’s likely to sport a much more agreeable [...]
