I <3 Pinterest

Posted in Art & Design, Social Media by Natalie on January 20, 2012

I recently started using the new social media, image-sharing site, Pinterest, and I think I’m in love. The site seamlessly aggregates images from a huge array of sources and makes sharing, or pinning, a breeze. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a site so user-friendly. Not only can I “pin” creative bits I find or create onĀ  my own, but, after telling Pinterest my interests, I can browse hundreds of posts from people just like me! It’s a great source of discovery and inspiration.

Pinterest sums it up best,

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.

Judge a Book by its Cover

Posted in Art & Design by Natalie on November 28, 2011

As someone who refuses to accept that print is dead (or dying?), I love books – reading books, holding books, turning book pages – and, of course, enjoying books’ cover art. Therefore, I found this article on 20 Classic Novels’ First Covers to be pretty interesting. Loving the worn, iconic look of these covers. Now, we just need a follow up article with the recent editions’ cover art.

Dexter posters

Since I no longer get Showtime, I’m (very sadly) missing out on this season’s Dexter. However, these posters will just have to fulfill my Dexter fix until I can commandeer my parents’ couch, TV, and On-Demand. From Ty Mattson, these silkscreens are visually stunning and Dexter appropriate.

These posters of superheroes and their alter egos are totally awesome! I love the simplicity of the graphics and the concept is great! The Hulk is one of my favorites. Art work by Danny Haas.

Every Person in New York

Posted in Art & Design by Natalie on November 2, 2011

You may have heard about this guy, Jason Polan, who is trying to draw every person in New York City. That’s awesomely crazy! You can find all of his work on his blog. The illustrations range from incredibly crud to detailed sketches, but they are all fascinating. I can only hope that my portrait lay somewhere within the over 2000 entries he already has.

Person in New York

Man on F Train

Person in New York

Parker Posey Walking Her Dog

Just so you know, New York City has around 8,008,278 residents. Best of luck, Jason!
