EVAs. The Swiss artist Max Grüter renders Extra Vehicular Activities. In short, Astronauts. And fab they are. Whole lotta thanks to Reimund for the tip!
Another Magazine. Kuenstlichst. Thanks to Jan. Also, check out Jan’s photos of the Vibrators and UK Subs.
Cut & Paste. The German graphic designer Klaus Staeck.
Klaus Staeck is the “elder statesman” of post-war European political montage. If anyone has taken up the mantle of John Heartfield and single-mindedly devoted himself to the cause, it is Staeck. He is a man of many parts: lawyer, politician, organiser, publisher, author, and television contributor, but most of all, he is a political artist. For over 30 years he has made posters. In the tradition of early agitprop, he has taken his art onto the streets with postcards, stickers and flyers.
And here’s his homepage.
Wonderful. Early Comic Strips 1898-1916. Fantastic. Lots of thanks go to Peter Zillig.
Rings. The art of Frank Hettick. And here’s the how-to.
The excentric Architect. Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, creator of Portmeirion. Quite a few drawings and pictures of his buildings can be found at the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Alex Cf is a fab illustrator and creates in his spare time things like an 18th Century lycanthrope research case or Cthulhu specimen jars. Absolutely fantastic. Also brilliant: Brass Goggles, the lighter side of steampunk. Via Mediaburn.
Matt Brooker is fab. Must be right, because I say so.
