Jack Daniel’s launches “Independence” campaign, calling on some talented designers/artists such as Helms Workshop, Jon Contino and Derek McDonald to hand-craft posters for the campaign. ”There’s something to be said about a man who isn’t afraid to be himself. Who takes pride in staying true to who he is.” - from Jack Daniel’s Independence website. We love the premise of the campaign and the passion and dedication of each artist. You can submit your own posters on Jack Daniel’s Facebook page.
Another great book that I plan on adding to my collection, “Let’s Make Some Great Art” by illustrator Marion Deuchars. Meant to be for all ages, this book is packed with ideas to spark your imagination. This is one book that you’ll let your kid write in. Again and again. I love the interaction it brings and the many ideas it inspires. Support Marion and get your copy here.
This video shows 2 artists (who are also twin brothers) and their invention of a 3D drawing machine that allows you to draw in perfect perspective with nothing but your eyes and a pen. Seeing it in action, it brings me back to when I first learned how to draw by placing a grid on everything… and then only drawing what is in each quadrant, eventually making up a whole, perfect picture. Except this machine takes it one step further, where what one eye is seeing in real time, the other is copying it onto paper. Such an interesting concept.
