We had the pleasure of meeting Timothy Hoover and Jessica Heltzel a few months back when they were touring Austin and a few other cities around the country. Before they left, they asked us to participate in a rad new project called The People’s Pennant. Rather than simply celebrating sports, they’re elevating the pennant to celebrate every day things. Every “season” they elicit the help of 12 designers, and release one pennant a month. We’ll be contributing in the coming months, but right now you can grab one from The Heads of State, Mikey Burton, and a couple other designers.
Check out the factory tour after the jump to see the pennants in the process of being produced (say that three times fast).
My buddy, Brian Gossett, has a great looking site with loads of new projects! Get inspired. Also, if you’re in need of some new jams, check out his Since78 mixes here.
One portrait drawn from one continuos line with one marker. It’s a fascinating thing to watch, especially for someone like myself who can’t draw a portrait with any number of regular lines and markers.
This Anatomy of an Agency Infographic is hilarious. It was created by The Big Orange Slide and features some great generalized stereotyping of our industry. Check out the full graphic after the jump.
Though I’ve always considered Conan O’Brien to be the funniest guy on late-night TV, I never really watched his show religiously. It wasn’t until seeing Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop that I became a “true” fan. The film won me over partly because it revealed how truly upset Conan was about how NBC’s handled the time slot debacle with Jay Leno. Even though Conan was by no means struggling to survive, I can get behind anyone with a creative vision who acknowledges and fights for what they are worth, tooth and nail.
During the six-month period that NBC banned Conan from appearing on TV, he was flooded with fan support—a lot of which came in the form of artwork. This past week, the New York Museum of Conan Art curated a selection of those gifts from fans to be shown at the Time Warner Center in New York City.
