I found these rather sweet illustrations yesterday over at Melvyn Evan’s site. The remind me of everything that is good and mysterious in the world. And how can you pass up all that stubbly hair on this little critters?!
Well…. it’s that time of week again ladies and gents! Here’s the next installment of gigposters from me, straight to your pretty little eyeballs. There was a surprising number of completely gorgeous posters in the F section, maybe I should change my name to something starting with F so that the likelihood I’ll produce something eye-wateringly good will go through the roof.
He only has one, but the one he’s got is great. I love the colors and the movement he’s created with lines.
This is one of my favorite posters of all time. The fingers as little people and the typography in the shape of a hand! Ahhh it’s too good…
I really like this poster. He only has two posters, but the way he’s divided this illustration of a fist and the lines radiating off with information is really nice.
I have a definite thing for posters that use three or four layered colors to create a 3d-without-the-3d-glasses look and this one is no exception. This guy is prolific, but this is my favorite poster of his.
I love this particular illustration, not as a poster, but as a little drawing. The line work is so great!
There are some interesting moments in Francoise Massacre’s posters. This hand is an example of neat typography, cool illustration and interesting color. Nice job Francoise.
Is zany like Fast Friends Inc. but in a quieter, stranger way. There are lots of lovely colored intestines happening, and some interesting typography chopping around on their posters. I like.
I really love the colors and shapes she’s chosen for her posters.
Yeah yeah, I love bunnies, and yes this one is painting red hair on a dude with a cigar. ‘Nuff said.
Has some very sweet little illustrations. I don’t think his style is quite formed all the way yet, but it’s heading somewhere soft and pretty.
“Doodling away night and day, Perry creates new typefaces and sundry graphics that inevitably evolve into his new work, exercising the great belief that the generating of piles is the sincerest form of creative process.”
My parents were looking at Mike Perry’s site this morning and at some point I was called over to see some of the little patterns he had drawn. That was about an hour ago and since then I’ve been wading through his site finding one awesome illustration after another. I admire every piece he has up on his stupidly complicated site. If you want to go and see more of his things, it’s worth trying to navigate around that site… trust me. Mike, dude, simplify your site… it’s a pain.
Untitled Magazine is one of Perry’s creations… and it is gorgeous. This is from the third issue… oh man it’s only $6.00 for this one (16 pages) and it’s $14.00 for the second issue (an 80 page swim suit issue). After the sale next weekend, we’ll see if I have any play money. I know exactly where it’s gonna go!

Holiday Zine 2008
Anywho, at some point during my travels this morning I wound up buying his Holiday Zine 2008. It was only $8.00 including shipping and it had most of my favorite illustrations in it. How great is that!?
Now in it’s third year, the award winning Show Below returns to the Brighton Media Centre, showcasing some of the UKâ€™s most exciting illustration, screen prints and original artwork. It’s a one-weekend thing in May and these are some of the artists who are going to make an appearance:
Smashing Magazine had a collection of “40 Beautiful Skateboard Designs” today. Skateboards are another one of those cool graphic design niches I forget about until I see a really good one. When I was looking at these I noticed that most of Smashing’s favorites came from the same site, Deckpeck. From what I can tell it’s a collection of artists who do things Dude-related. You know what I mean. Anyway, here are some of my favorites from Smashing’s article:
