I don’t know where this image is from — I found it via this tweet — but I like it.
Update: It’s from this “Pixie Says Series” by Zivan Rosic (thanks, Shaun).
If you dig into the archives of this site, you’ll find tons of posts about my relationship with Audrey and Yoshi, previously of OK Fred magazine (from where we spun off Radio OK Fred) and now Too Much magazine. The latest issue is all about climber Naoki Ishikawa, and while at the Tokyo Art Book Fair (September 16-19) this weekend (at booth E-22), they’ll offer up a poster with a purchase of the issue. Ishikawa will be on hand to sign copies on Saturday at 15:00.
You probably recognize the poster on the right, for the movie Oblivion (which I quite liked). On the left is a work from the 70s by artist Tsunehisa Kimura, and yes, I think we can see where the inspiration for the visual on the movie poster came from. Found via this post, that includes a few more examples of Kimura’s work — and you’ll find much more in this Google image search.
I’ve been a bit quiet on the SNOW Magazine Cafe front, but yes, it’s still happening next month at Cafe Pause (August 1-30), and I’m very happy to reveal the poster for the event. It was designed by my GOOD Inc. compadre, Luis Mendo, and I absolutely love the illustration he came up with. The poster will appear at the entrance to to cafe, and a slightly different version will be used for the flyer (and big thank to Hiyoko Imai for the help with that).
I also have a very exciting new development regarding the event — and SNOW Magazine in general — that is going to be very cool. I’ll announce more soon, but for now let’s just say that it truly embraces the medium that is being celebrated at the exhibition.
I announced it a month back, and now the fifth edition of the “Cafe Pause Poster Series” is finally up at the entrance of the cafe. Again, huge thanks to Luis for doing this — it’s a great way to kick off 2010 at Cafe Pause! You can better see the poster here, as well as an explanation of the concept behind it.
