drew struzan airbrushes your childhood


drew struzan
It’s impossible to overstate how closely this man’s poster art was inextricably linked to my entire idea of “movies” when I was a kid. Browsing the gallery, its clear that I didn’t always even realize it; there are posters he did that must have clicked with me on some level, but I’m only now seeing them and thinking “oh YEAH he did that!” Struzan’s art might not be the most high-brow, but it definitely captures a childlike sense of wonder and adventure that few others would be able to acheive.

Lady Omega – The 13 Most Unreadable Metal Logos

I loooooooove metal logos. I was pretty proud of myself for being able to read the Impaled logo on a shirt the other week without asking, but that was NOTHING compared to these logos. It must have been so much fun to create these. I went with the Absu logo for this post cuz I love Absu, but you should see the other ones!

kim asendorf/pixel shifting


but does it float
I strongly, strongly recommend that you head over to But Does It Float and check these images out, and if you click the images there, you’ll be taken to Kim Asendorf’s flickr page. I saw this on my friend Catherine’s feed and was blown away. The images remind me a lot of the album covers for the band Growing, as well as album covers for Autechre. So awesome (in the traditional sense of the word)! I tried to look up pixel shifting to try and understood how this was acheived, but I’m still clueless. Does anyone know?

hitchhiker’s gifs


from analog medium

I found this blog in my bookmarks folder, and don’t recall the exact reasons for bookmarking it. However, given that they talk about NES art, cult movies, game genie cheat codes, and hip-hop, I am guessing that I bookmarked it for those reasons. Check out the full site.

muni graffiti

Like yesterday’s post, this example of graffiti is way old. But then, it’s also way awesome. I’d much rather ride a bus covered in graffiti than a bus full of trash, although the two often go hand in hand.

This is from a couple years back in L.A…..




A MAN AGAINST INSANITY by Paul de Kruif.
The story of a doctor who conquered his own insanity and now shows others the way back, by the author of Microbe Hunters.
"An old master Paul de Kruif surely is. His latest book has pace, it has style, it has a sharply drawn hero, and, most important, it tells one of the great stories of our times." -Washington Post and Times Herald.

I found that in the back of a copy of Nova Express by William S. Burroughs.

My name is Alex and I live in LA the Bay Area.
