Designer and typographer Mico Toledo reinvigorates some heavily inspiring artist lyrics in the typography project “Music Philosophy.” Shake it.
Yes, I am dedicating an entire blog post to this image. A boy. He is wearing cute jeans. He is holding a typography poster. Shake it.
Micah Smith’s brilliant poster art can be found along with some great tee’s over at his site My Associate Cornelius. I of course wanted to find more information on Micah, his work, his process- what I found was “Micah Smith 1982 – present” I actually think that is sort of perfect. Shake it Micah.
Roll and Tumble Press is one of my favorite etsy finds. Their prints are hand illustrated, hand carved, hand set, and hand cranked. They have a great collection of work and their bio makes it all that much better- “Charming painter turned letterpress printer + Art school dropout turned tattoo artist bond over a love of music, quirky collections and dusty junk shops. One, big, drafty house, three rescue dogs, and a chance meeting with a true old time printer…Roll & Tumble Press is born.”
ARTCRANK is a showcase of bicycle-inspired original poster artwork that people can enjoy looking at and afford to take home. ARTCRANK began in Minneapolis in 2007, and has expanded to Denver, St Louis, Portland, San Francisco and Des Moines.
Every ARTCRANK show features posters created by local artists from the host city. Admission is always free, and much celebration of cycling and poster art is to be had at their hoppin openings. ARTCRANK was in Portland last year and welcomed over 500 guests raising over $1000 for Bikes to Rwanda. ARTCRANK will be back in PDX this year and I can’t wait. Shake it guys.
