Jessica Hische Cover Bomb A few weeks ago Stuart Tolley, author of the critically acclaimed book, Collector’s Edition invited ten of his heroes to illustrate custom covers for the launch. They were auctioned for The Alzheimer’s Society. I managed to snap-up this one by Jessica Hische. The contributing artists, all of which appear in the book are: Paul McCartney, Nick Cave, Wayne Coyne / The Flaming Lips, Stanley Donwood, Peter Gabriel, Robert ‘3D’ Del Naja (Massive Attack), Jessica Hische, Olive...

typeworship: Type Tiles A friend of mine was telling me about these ceramic tiles in Liberty’s department store in London. A gun toting octopus, a smoking fish and a Dodo in a bowler hat, these mischievous, anthropomorphic animals that accompanying these decorative letters seem like something from an adult version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The eccentric images have been taken from Rory Dobner’s intricate ink drawings. A continual drawer and doodler, he has a library of old sketchbooks...

Globe Jotter These wonderful hand-painted globes are by Laura Maxcy, of Mississippi. Each vintage globe is drawn on directly using paint pens and then sprayed with a protective coating.  As someone who’s not a fan of the pastiche quote posters that seem so ubiquitous, I love the connection between the sayings, the lettering and the globes. It’s this combination that gives the otherwise trite captions a twist of wit and whim. “Although I got my degree in graphic design, I needed a cr...

Beauty & Beer I like the design – and amusing concept – of these facial products disguised as beer. ‘For men who think facial products are too feminine’.‘Sir Stout’ was designed by Chantelle Rautenbach of South Africa and I’m pretty sure it’s a personal project. “Each targeting a certain nutritional value your skin requires. Thats why each beer bottle has an ingredient specific for targeting good skin and happens to be an ingredient in beer. Look good while still feeling like a man.”

God’s own junkyard - The Neon Man These photos feel wonderfully festive. After making neon signs for 37 years, Chris Bracey has truly earned his nickname, The Neon Man. He learnt the process from his father, who used to make signs for amusement arcades, fairgrounds and circuses. Working as a neon light artist, Chris’s work is very desirable and his reputation has been amplified by high-profile collectors and blockbuster films featuring his signs (among the movie list you can spot several fictio...

Creative Covers This Frankenstein, book cover is right up my street and quite inspirational for the work I’m doing at the moment. It’s was design a few years ago by Maciej Ratajki, a designer based in Warsaw, Poland. For me, everything works well together. The composition with triple use of the ‘n’,  the play of scale with the author’s name and the ‘i’ nested within the large characters, and the blackletter typeface.My only reservation is the detailed loop on the ‘a’ which is a...
