15 Uses for Newsprint


A bunch of illustrators and designers occupying The Pencil Factory in Brooklyn have put together 15 Uses for Newsprint, a promotional newsprint poster zine featuring their own work.

My good friend Alex Eben Meyer is one of the included illustrators and his piece (pictured here) is by far my favorite of them all. Not to say the others stink, there’s a bunch of great pieces included.

The zine includes pieces by Kim Bost, Josh Cochran, Jennifer Daniel, Gilbert Ford, Jessica Hische, Grady McFerrin, Ted McGrath, Alex Eben Meyer, Chris Silas Neal, Zacharia O’Hora, Leif Parsons, Rachel Salomon, Joel Speasmaker, Jillian Tamaki, or Sam Weber.

You can order 15 Uses for Newsprint for $10 and the first 100 orders get an original drawing by one of the artists.

You can peak at some more photos over at The Pencil Factory Flickr page.        

Counter Print

counter_print.jpg is a new site aimed at the sale of out of print and hard to find Art & Design related material. I’ve been wanting something like this for a long time. The site already has a bunch of gems on there, like this Stedelijk Museum catalog designed by Wim Crouwel. This site’s not going to be kind on my wallet.        

File Magazine


I’m digging this.

File Magazine is a bi-annual publication that focuses on graphic design, art and visual communication and includes a DVD that features shorts, videos, interviews and more. Each issue also features a limited edition print.

They’ve just released their first issue which can be purchased for £6.50.

Elephant Paints Self Portrait

This has nothing to do with graphic design but I had to write about this. What this elephant does is simply amazing. I have no idea how this is possible. Could it be fake???
