Please Post Bills: A art tribute to a comedic legend.
This is an amazing collection of unique pieces and screen prints all in tribute to Bill Murray. Here is a few I found interesting. But definitely go check out the whole collection – or if you are in California – go see it in person at the 1988 gallery.
King of Brand Consistency
So maybe I am a little slow on this one, but I ran across this fellow David Iglesia’s book and was really impressed with the BK work. Having worked with a few global brands with extremely diverse businesses across the globe I wonder how difficult this engagement must have been. Especially given the franchise model of Burger King I can’t imagine it was an easy feat to roll out. Despite how complex it probably was, the result is a really nice system of elements and some really fun illustrations that communicate a lot with very little words.

Beautiful illustrations from Brooke Weeber
These illustrations are just lovely, and so is the rest of her work. I recently read a little about her journey through the country from west to east coast and how that informed her work. (which you can read and see more lovely images on cool hunting)
After reading that post, be sure to check out her site for more beautiful work. I just love the combination of black ink and really atmospheric uses of watercolor beneath. Beautiful style and definitely one of those artists I will be keeping my eye on!

Just a little ode to an arrested development quote.
This is a lovely sampling of sketches from a fellow named Kyle – also a Chicagoan according to his behance. Very cool and inspiring. Check him out: behance.net/gallery/Sketchbook-Summer-Oh-Nine/256744
As I am sure everyone is aware the 7 billionth person is due out soon. Yowza! The BBC’s site has a neat little tool where you can put in a little info about yourself and find out where you are in the grand order of things. It inspired me to do a little illustration for giggles. Imagine if you really had to take a number in order of when you were born?
Anyhoo. Check out the little interactive tool here at the bbc news site
This is not new ( I have definitely giggled at it in the past) – but being a new independent consultant myself I thought I should take another peek at this amazing, hilarious and so so trueillustration and site by Jessica Hische
Anyhoo – here is the link to the site. If you are a freelancer, independent consultant or designer or what-have-you this is a great reminder.
These illustrations are amazing. A hot dog with abs? Love it!
The site is pretty fun too – using a little HTML 5 magic so that the hot dogs appear to slide through the bun arms as you scroll through the page. Very fun. My only nit is that its not set up to scroll with the space bar. Other than that though, its a super cute site.
