John K has a great post on Feodor Rojankovsky‘s illustrative paintings over at his blog today.
Rojankovsky (1891-1970) was a Russian-born artist best known for his animal-filled childrens illustrations. “Two great events determined the course of my childhood. I was taken to the zoo and saw the most marvellous creatures on earth: bears, tigers, monkeys and reindeer, and, while my admiration was running high, I was given a set of color crayons.”
Noisy Decent Graphics on The Design Disease: “…it’s there in every aspect of life. You can’t stop looking at things through your designer eyes. Everything you do is clouded by this thing that lives inside you.”
A bit early, but it’s the last chance I’ll get. Thanks for reading! I’ll leave you with another great post from Stuff from the Park. Not only does he have a fantastic poster from Disneyland, New Year 1962 but there’s also a fantastic photo of the Pirates of the Caribbean model used in the 1965 Disneyland 10th anniversary show.
See you next year!
I think I’m going to forget all I’ve read about Die Hard 4′s title and who it’s being directed by and move swiftly on — possibly forgetting that the whole thing ever happened. Perhaps I should just be grateful that it’s no longer called Die Hard 4.0… on account of the plot revolving around an internet-based terrorist organisation… *lone cough in silence*
Here’s something that caught my eye… Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) are collaborating to produce an exploitation horror/slasher double bill called “Grind House” in the vein of those 70s horror flicks with fantastic posters (but were actually total crap). Both filmed in Texas, Death Proof, Tarantino’s movie, stars Kurt Russell as a mad man hell-bent on killing hot chicks with his big car (“sort of a slasher film, but instead of a knife, it’s a car”), and Planet Terror, Rodriguez’ half, is a zombie movie starring Rose McGowan with a machine gun for a leg.
It all sounds too good to be true… but there’s more! They’re also shooting fake trailers for spaghetti western, blaxploitation, sexploitation and kung fu movies which will show between the two films. Want more? One of the trailers will be directed by Edgar Wright (Spaced, Shaun of the Dead) and another by Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel). If all that wasn’t enough, check out these gorgeous teaser posters.
