1000 Heads: the book

1000 heads, my illustration book

Inspiring books for the creative type


40 years of OP-ED

New York Times' OP-ED (Opposite Editorial page) is 40 years old. To commemorate this anniversary, the newspaper has put together a special section with some of the remarkable illustrations that have paraded this section through the years.

Along these 40 years the NYT has built up an incredible collection of witty, creative and though-provoking artwork by leading artists such as Ronald Searle, Milton Glaser, Tomi Ungerer, Gary Baseman, Tibor Kalman, Seymour Chwast, Shigeo Fukuda (this sample), Roland Topor, Al Hirschfeld, Ralph Steadman, The Heads of State and many more.

You can explore different topics (terrorism, equality/inequality, science, money, the presidency, and more) and read a selection of the Editorials and their OP-ED counterparts (in PDF format). Plus, there is a short, high-quality video OP-ED at 40: Four Decades of Illustration, with examples and comments from both editors and artists.

Illustrations by Shigeo Fukuda (top), Milton Glaser (centre) and Brad Holland (bottom).


Books and tees

Out of print is an online shop which sells t-shirts with book covers. These designs can be anything from iconic designs and illustration classics to bizarre pulp fiction images, and anything in between. Nice project.


Making ink

Chemistry + physics + technology + craft= color à gogo

The workshop shown is from The printing ink company. Yes, I like to watch how stuff is made.


What a nice (interactive Flash) website for the Monet retrospective in Paris (Grand Palais, until the 24th of January 2011).



Artologica sells original paintings that explore the intriguing beauty of natural phenomena. Using the wet-in-wet technique in watercolor, microorganisms and biological suggestions emerge in these peculiar works.
