I recently came across this charming little video by Part & Parcel for the Ford Foundation’s, Time to Succeed Initiative. The video visualizes ways to modernize our education system in a fun and engaging way. I’m loving the little characters, the awesome color palate, and the subtle patterns and textures that is carried throughout the video. Learn more here.

Yesterday I picked up the recent issue of GOOD magazine, and I was really impressed by these WPA posters by Dan Cassaro. I thought they were incredibly clever and fun, I’d defiantly by a screen print of these.

I saw these really amazing drawings by Jorinde Voigt today. I’m not even sure what to make of them, they’re somewhere in between a topographic illustration and some kind of Nicolas Felton line graph. They just visually carry my eye all over the place, these are the types of things I can stare at for hours. More below the fold.
London-based illustrator Liam Stevens has a great body of work primarily created with just mechanical pencils. I’m really enjoying his series of paper-cut asteroids, which have been recently published as a zine. You can pick up a copy of the zine and a pack of your very own paper asteroids here. Seeing things like this makes me smile, I sometimes forget how much fun it is to play with paper and pencils. There’s nothing juvenile about play, it’s time to bust out the scissors and color pencils tonight.
