Alongside amazing illustrators, Belly Kids created this colouring book of Bill Murray. How freaken cool is this?! A coloring book dedicated to the great man that we got to know in Ghostbusters. Available for preorder here
Completely crazy about the work of Max Dalton, a graphic artist living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Would love to have the Beatles Poster, but unfortunately it is sold out.
Those who know me, would tell you that anything related to The Beatles makes me extremely happy, and this project by Shy the Sun did exactly that.
They collaborated with Pete Candeland to design and conceptualize the characters of the second part of the Beatles Rock Band Cinematic. Apparently most of these characters were designed on a boat cruise in the Bahamas whilst drinking tall cocktails. ha.
PRNewswire/–Dark Hall Mansion designed this amazing, first officially licensed, limited edition print Folio for The Beatles 1968 cinematic masterpiece, Yellow Submarine.
Dark Hall Mansion worked closely with Live Nation Merchandise, The Beatles’ North American Licensing Agent, and Apple Corps Ltd. on this project to develop a series of limited edition screen prints by leading contemporary artist, Tom Whalen. What makes this project even more amazing, it that this is the first time that The Beatles have formally allowed a contemporary artist to reinterpret their classic films imagery within a art print format.
The new Inkling from Wacom is here. Now you can draw on any paper or surface and transfer it over on to your computer in either vector or bitmap graphics. It also doesn’t only record the strokes, but the pressure you drew with as well. You can even create layers. Amazing hey? Priced at $199 and available mid-September.

The Blackheart Gang just returned from their latest expedition, The Bog, carrying with them many notes and images of what they saw. Amongst these were 5 paintings of some of the wildlife seen there. These paintings have been made into copperplate etchings in collaboration with Warren Editions.
Something nice in the beginning of the week.
Mette Hornung Rankin signed up for the Sketchbook Project last year and here is a few of the pages out of her sketchbook. I decided to crawl under my bed and grab my moleskin for a little Sketchbook Project of my own. Will keep you posted - if I succeed. I get distracted eas…. ooh pretty pictures!

“Summer is not a temperature or some months of the year… it’s a state of mind…”
- James Jamo Coetzee
This little statement of my friend (which my hands, feet and I are still not convinced about) inspired today’s post. I’ll try anything to bring back Summer. So here is a little ray of Sun.
The ‘Invitation to an Assassination’ series examines how seemingly routine and casual occurrences can quickly become extraordinary events with a profound global impact the moment a powerful figure, whether it be a world leader or pop culture icon, is assassinated.
Some clever design hey? Go look at the posters and read the little description on the left to understand the design. Clever I say once again, clever.
There is a beautiful Japanese tradition that tells that a wish may be granted in response to someone with the devotion to fold one thousand origami cranes
One Thousand Cranes is a project that got a bunch of artist, designers and illustrators on boars to create beautiful designs that can be made into origami cranes. When you donate to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief fund, you can download one of these designs, and fold a crane in support of Japan. Beautiful project hey? As soon as I got my PayPal account up and running, I’m downloading me a bird!
One of the designs u can download. Design by I LOVE DUST
Will Staehle are quite amazing! He created these stunning illustrations with rather good copy to go with the visual. I tried to get the best ones, but there are just so much. Go check them out for yourself. Really great stuff.
I love random fun facts, and this post is especially for Paul who love the weird, wonderful and true. Learn Something Every Day is a self initiated daily project by UK based design studio Young where you can submit a little unknown or lesser known fact and it gets drawn and doodled up in fun bright colours. Everyday a new fact gets added. Here is just a few I quickly grabbed before the briefs started raining on my desk.
Happy learning everybody, it is almost the weekend.
