Thanksgiving as a Vintage Affair

Illustration // Thursday, November 27, 2014
Every year, we like to touch on America's national holiday of "thanks" that really stems from the feast held in the autumn of 1621 by the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag to celebrate the colony's first successful harvest. What a better way to celebrate than with some gorgeously decorative and embellished illustrated vintage greeting cards. A yearly look at nostalgic Thanksgiving art... 

Thanksgiving Pin-Ups

Erotica // Thursday, November 27, 2014
We have no idea how our Erotica editor found these last year, but let's bring them back for Football day, er, Thanksgiving. "The holidays are upon us and are a time for giving and loving, sharing and spreading cheer to all those that are close to you. This year, be sure to give a little something extra to the love(s) in your life. Take some leads from a few of these classic, turkey loving pin-ups."

The Sexy Pilgrim

Erotica // Thursday, November 28, 2013
I have no idea what this is other than possibly the worlds first Thanksgiving themed RnB jam, and for that, I support it wholeheartedly. Theres traditional 'Pilgrim' garb, not so traditional dancing and some borderline lyrics that seem appropriate to play with the family on this special day. Possibly. I have no idea. Enjoy.

A very appropriate Thanksgiving holiday card by Susan Burghart- in the traditional calligraphic style. Susan worked as a graphic designer for eight years before attending Camberwell College of Arts in London in 2006 to re-train as an illustrator, receiving an M.A. with Distinction. Her work was acquired by the University of the Arts London to be part of their permanent collection...

A Little Thanksgiving Erotica

Erotica // Thursday, November 22, 2012
'Our apartment is set up with a huge bedroom, a generous kitchen and no dining room to speak of. So it isn’t too often that we throw dinner parties. In fact, we’ve never had guests over to eat. To drink, yes. To play, of course. Just not to dine. But when my 25th birthday happened to fall on Thanksgiving, my girlfriend Naomi decided that she wanted to do something extra special...'  

Thanksgiving Inspired Tattoo Flash

Tattoo // Thursday, November 22, 2012
Why bother with all that family, over-eating mumbo jumbo this holiday season when you can get drunk by yourself, drop by your local Chinese joint, then head on over to your buddy's house for some good old fashioned Turkey Leg tattooing?!  Then you can talk about it all year long until Thanksgiving falls upon us again... Sounds like my kind of party.

The Macy’s Murakamis are here

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 25, 2010
Today, if you are up early enough and like to watch parades, contemporary art's very own Takashi Murakami will have a major role in the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Macy's themselves have been trying to have Murakami's Kaikai and Kiki characters in the form of inflatable balloons over the streets of Manhattan for years, and we are happy for the determination to get the Japanese artist to commit. More pictures, courtesy of the NY Times, after the jump . . .
