Half of Less Than Ten

Illustration // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
'The skeleton dimensions I shall now proceed to set down are copied verbatim from my right arm, where I had them tattooed; as in my wild wanderings at that period, there was no other secure way of preserving such valuable statistics. But as I was crowded for space, and wished the other parts of my body to remain a blank page for a poem I was then composing—at least, what untattooed parts might remain...'

Illustration // Tuesday, May 01, 2012
“At first, I see abandoned cities, temples in deserts, solitary mountains—but slowly figures begin to populate them. Execution is largely dependent on time, the less there is the more things happen inside the computer. I prefer ink and watercolors, the rest is patience.” Cosimo Galluzzi is a Los Angeles based illustrator.

David Chestnutt's Psychedelic fairy tales

Illustration // Monday, April 30, 2012
Let’s Pretend was a series of fairy tale recordings released in the US in 1970. The sleeves are illustrated by David Chestnutt and shows a great example of the soft whimsical style that was so prevalent in the early 70's. Each of the 25 recordings employs a radio show format, possibly because these were all radio recordings originally. The masterful illustration and design work that appears on old record covers never ceases to amaze me.
