New comicbook centered around Ghostface Killa of Wu-Tang clan. Created by Mathew Rosenberg and Patrick Kindlon executive produced by RZA is aimed at the hiphop audience but "isn't pandering or trying to take advantage of the obvious iconography." Only thing missing is the soundtrack--oh wait it does.

After 50 years in the making the Salvador Dali cartoon brings his surrealist paintings to life. Notice the motifs he often used such as ants, checkerboards and objects in negative space.

Video mashup from the @artbymungo official youtube channel. Every now and then I get inspired to connect the dots of art, music and technology with a compilation of borrowed material (aka Buzzard Kill).

Aniboom is a cool way for animators to post work and be discovered for new projects. There are lots of awesome animations to watch, competitions to enter and even ways to hire talent. We've finally reached the era where the jobs find the artist. So many styles!
Typography: The Muni Font Gets Jacked

MUNI train by the Bay Bridge in San Francisco.

Residents of San Francisco have become familiar with the MUNI logo over the past four decades. First penned by the pervasive Walter Landon (designer of Coca-Cola, GE, Shell Oil). The logo is on all of the double car electric beasts and newer diesel powered buses in the city. The overhead lines that snake their way through the city streets have inspired artists to capture them in photos and prints. A symbol of connectivity and streamlined modern life, the street cars get you where you need to go.

Back in high-school a good friend's older brother made a bunch of underground shirts with the well known municipal transit icon. It didn't take very long before other print shops were selling screen prints, stickers and other merch with the logo (This lady even got it tatted on her neck missionmission.org). The letters are almost hidden and works as a stand alone shape, but locals know exactly what it means. For a shirt period it was an ever present symbol of the city street culture. Fast forward to the year 2012 when the railway system celebrated 100 years of public transportation and the Muni font had been ripped (expanded into a full alphabet). It had been used for any project meant to have that authentic 415 style. The next thing that happened was not as predictable. Brands outside of the bay-area started using the locally relevant logographic on all kinds of projects. So now you know.

Even Nike jacked the style. Really??

The lettering is still awesome no matter how exploited it has become. Bold, curvaceous, modern yet retro and ever present. If you want to add a unique flavor to keep your designs moving, here is the link for the mass transit font.

Digital photo of print supplies with digital print effects. I took a snapshot of the Speedball photo emulsions by my desk for my new website. These bad boys are just waiting to be put to use on a shirt design. All of my favorite things done in reverse order. Most of my print work start starts with hand-drawn artwork but this answers any question about the tools I use. Yes, I love photoshop.
