Erik Marinovich at SAA

  Eric is one of my favorite current letterers. This year alone I’ve pitched his lettering work on two projects but have yet to get a chance to work with him. I’m hoping to change that really soon. His work it top notch and just keeps getting better at an exponential rate. The famous quote...

OMFGCo for the Ace Hotel

  It’s OMFGCo week on the Allan Peters’ Blog. Ha! These guys are brilliant and I really wanted to show this project as well because of the depth and variety. What a fun experience it must be to stay at the Ace and to be surrounded by such a bold brand.        ...

Geoff McFetridge at the Walker Art Center

  Geoff McFetridge is one of my favorite artists. I saw him at the walker in 2001 back when I was just finishing up school. He’s been a huge influence on me in terms of color, visual tricks and simplicity. The above lecture is pretty long (close to two hours) but it’s a great archive...
Official MFG. Co. for Portland Meadows

Official MFG. Co. for Portland Meadows

  Has this campaign been on every blog yet? It should be. It’s amazing. Here are OMFG’s words about the rebrand: Portland Meadows race track has been a staple on the Portland scene since 1946, but almost no one really knew about it. If they did, they thought it was a dog track, or that...

The thing that he has in spades is his level of taste. His work is simple while still keeping the intrigue. Jonny is going to go on...
Julius Klinger

Julius Klinger

  I love the above poster and I’m shocked that it was illustrated in 1909. It looks like something I’d see some hipster kicking out on dribbble. It’s the work of Julius Klinger. I found Julius’ work on ffffound which led me to a little google image searching where I found the rest of the...

Feria Internacional Del Campo

Feria Internacional Del Campo

  I was having a hard time finding out anything about these classic illustrators other then they all did work for “Feria Internacional Del Campo”. As far as I can tell, their names are: Villen, Zozano and a mystery on the hand poster. Really beautiful stuff though. I love that bear. Mikey Burton would be...
