My #1 resolution for 2009 was to post a new 2009 calendar. Thank you to Airside for making it happen! Their sweet type-befriends-bird ’09 calendar is a real beauty. I love how each month is displayed and presented. It includes 27 illustrations, and is printed on recycled paper made from 100% post-consumer waste using bio-vegetable-oil-based inks. Not too shabby.
After you check out the store, swing by the blog where you can see Kumar (Of Wes Anderson movie fame etc.) serve up chai the right way! Plus every friday its “dance time” where they drop a serious Bollywood gem like this. Pass the naan and get ready to get down!
What up hero? This is a must see! Heck yea!
Philadelphia based illustrator and designer, Tim Gough, has a real knack for eye popping color and juxtaposing thin, densely clustered lines with stronger meatier ones, creating some rich textures.
We’re big fans of Matte Stephens here at Grain Edit, so we’re excited to announce that his work will be displayed at the SoHo, Madison ave and Columbus St. Jonathan Adler stores in New York. Other stores around the country will be added. If your in The NYC area, stop on by. Go Matte!
Keep an eye on Matte’s blog to see if his work is coming to a Jonthan Adler store near you.
Love the variety from Kansas City designer/illustrator Tad Carpenter. His character illustrations are super imaginative and unique. It’s nice to see the range of his work as well: traditional design, installations, posters, identity, packaging, painting, and more. Lots of fun type poking out here and there as well.
Vahalla recently had a gallery show. See the highlights video on Tad’s blog.
Ok We’re back. I hope everyone had a great New Years! Lets start things off with our first ever…
Conservationist of the Month:
Grain Edit reader Brad Mosher rescued this endangered Italian specimen from a stinky dumpster in an alleyway. To quote Brad, “It was beautiful, broken and smelled of rancid oil and other typical foul goo.” Way to go Brad! Great score and thanks for helping to make this planet a better place.
Happy Holidays everyone! Thanks for making 2008 a great year. Gleeful shout outs to all the wonderful people that have contributed, commented and generally taken time out of their day to visit Grain Edit. We’ll be back on Jan 5th. Lots of good things planned for the new year!

Really, really into these lovely illustrations from Andrew Bannecker. Definitely the best beer and shoe prints I’ve seen in a long time. I love how he mixes flat graphics with intricate details. His work has a nice depth to it as well, thanks in part to those great rough textures.
A few (we want more!) of his prints are available from Charming Wall.
