Lego Victorian

These run-down victorian houses made entirely out of Lego pieces by Mike Doyle are equal parts whimsical and creepy.

Lego Letterpress Print

It’s not a completely original idea, but these Lego letterpress prints are definitely a step up in the actual design of the final prints.

It would have been cooler as a van

29 Oct

Brandon Ortwein has produced a series of illustrations of celebrity automobiles like Herbie the Love Bug, the General Lee, the Batmobile and the Delorean in van form. They’re available as prints, iPhone cases and laptop skins.

Maybe now people will start to realize just how awesome the A-Team van really was.

Oil & water do not mix

29 Oct

U.K. designer and printmaker Anthony Burrill has teamed up with Happiness Brussels to launch Oil & Water Do Not Mix.

Limited edition of 200 posters, screen printed with oil from the Gulf of Mexico disaster.

That’s right. Printed with oil from the 2010 Gulf of Mexico spill. Amazing. I just hope the oil doesn’t deteriorate into some stank awful mess on your wall.

Calvin and Hobbes murals

29 Oct

The very talented S. Rivas donated her expertise to paint some gorgeous murals at the Reynolds Home, a Texas shelter for women and children in crisis. The murals are not only well done but for a worthy cause. I think I love them even more because I’ve always been a huge Calvin and Hobbes fan, and because they remind me of the Curious George and Calvin and Hobbes murals my Dad used to paint in the classrooms my Mother taught in.
