DAILY INSPIRATION — Real nice illustration work from Jean David, created for State of Israel Tourist Centre. Originally found on Grain Edit some time ago.
Pentagram designer, Angus Hyland (and his team) have designed a new book, The Making of Fantastic Mr. Fox, to accompany Wes Anderson’s film, which is based on the much-loved tale by Roald Dahl. The Pentagram site writes, “The book is an ‘art of’ book rather than text or script-heavy and is full of storyboards, sketches, screen shots, behind the scene photos and a commentary of how the original story was developed to make a feature film.” …In our corner, this is a must see, both the film and book. PS. Wes Anderson talks about the film here.
Gosh, how great is the work of Mary Blair? Her color design was ground-breaking. It just pulls you in. This is concept art for Disney’s original Peter Pan.
That’s the message of the day folks. Courtesy of artist/design David Weidman.
