Terrible Yellow Eyes is a collection of artist’s work inspired by Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book, Where The Wild Things Are. The website is full of imaginative interpretations of the book’s characters, settings and story. Clearly the original book has provided countless artists and illustrators with the motivation to create images of their own, I know that personally a grade 11 art class assignment to create an illustration for the book really sparked my interest in illustration as a profession.
This picture (more after the jump) is from an event curated by Italian group Petralito Rotiroti Associati (dedicated to graphic design, visual identity, editorials, graphics for exhibitions, and events). It involved five Italian street artists (BROS, ERON, IVAN, NAIS, OZMO) in a unique, experientially focused exhibition. Amazing venue too.
This year the RGD DesignThinkers conference celebrates its 10th Anniversary with one of the strongest line-ups of speakers ever assembled. With creative minds from as far afield as India, Mexico, the U.K. and the U.S., this year is sure to be intriguing, informative and overall mind-blowing. Thanks goes out to Hambly & Woolley inc. for the 2009 conference design and branding. More images after the jump.
This is a crop from an older issue of ‘boards magazine. It’s a really cool concept illustrated by Brazil based firm Molho. They seem to focus on motion graphics and film, which is evident in the way they approach their print work. More images after the jump.
