Hey everyone, I’ve been out all night gathering photos for an upcoming post. Ok, so maybe the whole night wasn’t dedicated to photos. There might of been some sushi and sake involved along the way. I’m pretty tired but I wanted to get this little design gem up before I went to bed.

Tavis Coburn posters

Seems like everyone has been talking about Tavis Coburn lately and why not? His work is great. A beautiful marriage of vintage illustrative styles and images with contemporary techniques. This makes perfect sense in light of a recent interview with Josh Spear where he admitted to being “obsessed with anything from the 1940s – 1960s”. I was excited to find out that limited edition prints are available at Tavis Coburn’s online shop. Each print is signed and numbered.

Spike Press posters

Spike press posters
Spike Press is the moniker for one John Solimine, a Chicago based designer. In a world overrun by gig-poster designers, it’s refreshing to see someone with a little originality and illustration sense. These posters are fun, whimsical, and full of narrative — each poster has a very engaging mini-story that will pull you and your wallet right in. Enjoy!

Maria Keil : Infante Santo mural

While I was researching information on the Hotel Infante Santo, I came across the mural seen above. It is entitled Paredao da Avenida Santo and was completed in 1958. It took artist Maria Keil two years to complete this piece and boy was it worth it. I’m not sure why, but the way she painted the main figure slightly reminds me of the work of Doze Green.

Maria Keil : Please adopt me

Just found this mural. Sweet mother! This is good. I’m not sure if Maria Keil has grandchildren, but if not she can adopt me. She could teach me how to make murals and I could teach her how to throw sheep on Facebook.
