As the regular cowboy-hat-wearer at PUBLIC SCHOOL, its my legal obligation to share all things western related with you on the blog. Today’s western related thing is this cool set of animations for the iPhone game Ready Steady Bang. The game is a super simple, yet nicely produced Western Shootout game. Check out the cutely morbid video after the jump, then go buy the game. It’s an addicting one, especially with two players.
Hat tip to Dave Schwab for pointing it out to me.
Nathaniel Russell just recently launched a brand spanking new site that showcases his wide range of talent. I was first introduced to his work through the band Vetiver. He’s done numerous album packages and fliers that are filled with his folky lettering and watercolor washes. Not until recently have I discovered his quirky drawings that are featured after the jump.
I was making a Note Card of a submission Mary Kate McDevitt made to our Flickr Show & Tell Group and then decided that Mary Kate deserved her own post. Her hand lettering is really nice! This first one was an editorial illustration for a story on how Groupon hurts local businesses. The others after the jump are equally beautiful and totally uplifting.
Being that you’re up in Portland Mary Kate, if you’re reading this you should give old Willie Woods Bryant, our recent transplant Portland transplant, a shout.
I just came across this fun self-initiated learning resource today, Learn Something Everyday, which features random illustrated facts. So far there have been some really great contributing illustrators such as Andy Rementer (above), Merijn Hos, Andy Smith, Serge Seidlitz, Matthew Green, and Adrian Johnson.
There’s even a book available for pre-order!
I posted about Aled Lewis a while back and have been a big fan of his work ever since. Austin Kleon posted on his Tumblr about some new work that Aled created for the iam8bit art show. I love this kind of mashup project. There are a few more cool examples after the jump.
