Illustrations by Blanca Gómez

We first discovered the minimalistic, adorable design and illustration work of Madrid-based Blanca Gómez, through Uppercase Gallery. Blanca's illustration of the little man blowing colorful bubbles graced the cover of the first issue of the Uppercase magazine.



Above is Blanca's new Autumn print, which is available for purchase.

Her designs come to life in many different forms, and we recommend taking
a browse through her Etsy shop.

Photographs of Picasso's Light Paintings

In 1949, Gjon Mili, a photographer for LIFE magazine, photographed a series of Pablo Picasso drawing with light.

"The series of photographs–Picasso’s light drawings–were made with a small flashlight in a dark room; the images vanished almost as soon as they were created." —via Life magazine

They Might Be Giants, "I'm Impressed" from Bent Image Lab on Vimeo.

"For this music video, Rob Shaw took his robot minions quite seriously. In an early section of the video you'll notice soldier robots popping out of paper sheets and folding themselves into three dimensional shapes..."



Above is another animated music video for a new They Might Be Giants song, "I'm a Paleontologist."
(not sure who animated this one, please leave a comment if you have this info)



And here is one more animated music video for "Electric Car"

directors: Max Porter & Ru Kuwahata

vintage German matchbox labels
Shailesh Chavda has a small, but visually interesting collection of German matchbox label designs from the 1960s/70s on flickr. The above "erdgas" label almost looks like a book cover design. But, don't miss the other sets for Russian, Indian, Japanese and Czech matchbox label designs.
