The top image is a General Dynamics postcard by Erik Nitsche. The lower is from Joel Johnson’s flickr page. The background illustrations in each appear to be essentially identical save for some rotation. If you look closely at the children in the lower one you can see they are superimposed rather poorly (note the black outline from the sloppy clipping path). I wonder if this was someone appropriating the artwork or if this was some General Dynamics-sanctioned variation of the original (doubt it). Interesting either way; I think I like the yellowed, saturated version on the bottom best. The composition of the top example, of course, is superb.
Joyrex sent in this link to some renderings of futuristic "mega-cities". Included was this shot from Werner Panton’s "Visiona 2". Anthony Mark also sent in this footage from Visiona 2. Looks like fun.
We had some problems getting enough American Apparel tees in so there have been a lot of shortages at the shop lately. Well we finally got the AA blanks in and so the restocks are rolling off the line quickly now. Restocked today:
Tycho Arc (Gold)
Science of Patterns
Nice promo poster for the Legowelt Disco Rout video.
Was so wrapped up in design related projects over the past 6 months that I didn’t get much work done on the new album / singles. But I finally got back on track and have been down in the studio for the past week finishing up a new song. This new single will be the second in a series of three to be released over the coming months. The first in the series comes out Dec. 11th. This latest one I am finishing should come out about 2 months after that.
