30 for 30 did a fantastic documentary about Bo Jackson. As I was watching the documentary, the design fanboy in me found myself taking screen shots of the illustrations and typography. After the doc I had to find out who the hell was behind these amazing illustrations and designs. The illustrator is a familiar Grantland contributor Mick Duzyj and the Agency is Doubleday & Cartwright. 

Also for you Tecmo Bowl fans out there I took a screen shot of the famous Bo Jackson touchdown screen as well. Someone needs to make a T-shirt of this.

Jon Burgerman. First found him thru AOL redesign by Wolff Olins. The black and white illustrations reveal a fun and sort of primitive quality to it. This guys is part Keith Herring, part Spongebob, and all fun.  I love how his stuff evolved. It’s like how Neil Gaiman said about making art, just keep doing something you love the world will crack and lets you in.





I recently found Think Quarterly by Google. It’s refreshing to see good illustrations, and great articles. It’s almost like a very high end Monocle-like web magazine. It’s what I imagine Mcsweeney’s Quarterly would look like if it was only online. I think this is the first form of what an online magazine that feels tangible and breaks the grid of they boxy old htlm feeling websites and online magazines. ESPN’s Grantland, Mcsweeney’s Quarterly should take note this is the future of publishing. Fresh looking designs coupled with great informative articles.


Stunning painting by Fredrik Rattze. Need to found out more info about this artist but these images are hauntingly beautiful.


These illustrations are awesome! Loved them the first time I saw them in NYC about a month back. They were done by no other than Saiman Chow. I especially like how the players bodies are exaggerated, it gives it a sense of other worldly, godlike figures.

I am super excited about this one! Scott Pilgrim’s video game is coming out soon. I havn’t found out any more about this but the screen shots and game play preview looks amazing. It reminds me of the old school Nintendo games. Imagine the hipster version of River City Ransom. Cannot wait to play it! The game plays in Playstation and Xbox. Hmm time to get one of those I guess 🙂

Here’s another update to some new work.

I’ve always been a big fan of Evan Hecox’s amazing photo-esc prints. I recently came across Arkitip’s store and I just had to just grab both of these items.
