robot

Our friends over at Doodlers Anonymous have published a truly delightful coloring book with robot-themed illustrations by 48 artists. Having personally colored some of these pages with my 6-year-old twin daughters I can attest to the quality and whimsical fun to be found in these pages.

I’m including some closeup photos of some of my favorite pages below.

socks

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate to receive 6 pairs of these super awesome socks from Chatty Feet to review (I love my job). Naturally I picked the Artists Collection plus a couple of other fun pairs, but in all honesty I would wear every single one of these, or at least give them as a gift.

Not only do I have fun wearing these and mixing and matching them, but they even make the occasional appearance in puppet shows for my kids.

Illustrator Nigel Sussman is developing a really cool book project, and he needs your help!

“I am calling the project Alphabet Compendium; An Illustrated A-Z of Things. It will be an extensive illustrated alphabet book of objects. For each of the twenty-six letters there will be a visual representation creating an organic composition devoted to each character; even the color choices correspond with their respective letters. The entire book is basically a giant visual alliteration.”

Support Nigel’s project on Kickstarter here.

Petersen Shirts

Eric Petersen wholeLife1024x1024C1Eric Petersen goodFortune1024x1024

Eric Petersen’s work is great. I think we can all agree on this. However, when you take his images and recontextualize them as all-over printed t-shirts, they very quickly jump from great to insane. I wish that I could pull one of these off, however I tend to wear kaftans to cover up my insanely great love handles. If you tend towards t-shirt wearing, you should go for it. As an aside, neither I nor IA have any connection to this product. Just sayin’.

An Etsy shop we love belongs to graphic designer, Sabrina, of Small Caps Berlin. She works with paper, letters and a letterpress machine, printing everything by hand on Golding Pearl Letterpress, her Adana 8×5 or her Korrex proof press. She uses metal or wood type, vintage paper, old maps, magnesium or photopolymer clichés for the illustrations.
