Big Time Watching

Without a doubt this is one of my favorite commericals of all time. This is a spot on Adult Swim that I’ve been seeing for the last few weeks. I love the simple yet artistic and rendition of 1970’s television. So good it’s almost creepy.

More vinyl design stuff from yours truly. These vintage sleeves feature brightly colored, retro patterns. I loved them as soon as I saw them. I also love the blog that I found them on. It’s called Boooooom (that’s right, exactly 7 Os) featuring the design work of one Jeff Hamada. His header is charming; the art of Betsy Walton. as are the multi-colored links all leading out to quirky, fun artwork, design, and other oddities.

Vectors, Brushes, Tutorials, oh my!

Blog.SpoonGraphics by UK based Graphic and Web designer Chris Spooner, is a great resource for cool Photoshop and Illustrator freebies, and you can even get step by step tutorials on how to create cool pattern designs.

I’ve always liked using retro elements and colors in my design work, and I was happy to discover a post where Chris explains step by step how to create a bright retro grunge vector illustration. As it turns out they’re a lot easier to make than they appear. I also found an extensive collection of high resolution free Photoshop grunge and watercolor brushes today. This is one blog I recommend any graphic artist or designer check out. It has some great information in the form of articles and tutorials, fun goodies to download, and you also get to see some of his design work and creative process.
