Vast Food Nation.

My friend Adam is super talented.  Check out his new series, Vast Food Nation.  Episodes 1, 2, and 3 are part of your complete breakfast.

Episode 1 - The Green Death

Episode 2 - The "Fun" in Funeral

Episode 3 - Kidnapatorious

While the voices are mostly Adam's friends (listen for me as both a Budweiser Frog and Paparazzo) and the always-hilarious Bill Dwyer, I still think the greatest part is the character designs.  What a challenge it must have been to create characters that have just the right amount of "same-yet-different-ness" to their corporate counterparts.

Anyway, enjoy the episodes, and help Vast Food Nation achieve its rightful moment of internet glory.

Eric Tan's Poster Art.

Eric Tan creates posters for Pixar.  On his work, he says: 

"The bright colors and flat shapes were inspired by the Disneyland attraction posters you see when going through the tunnels at the entrance of the park. Even when I was 6, I remember thinking those things were amazing, so getting to reference them for this project was a thrill in itself."

I love those old Disney posters too, Eric.  See more examples of Tan's work here and here

My Superman Poster.

Last month I posted on the artwork of Tom Whalen, who makes posters for classic movies.  I said that I'd love to try to do one for Superman: The Movie in this style... so here it is.   I'm not 100% sold on the look of the text yet, but overall, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.  Click the image for a larger view.

"Hitchcock" was created by designer Matt Terich as an homage to the iconic lettering that so often appeared in Bass’ title work. The font is not a faithful digitization of any particular title sequence or poster — in fact, type designer Nick Shinn notes that Bass didn’t do the actual lettering and veteran Robert Trogman adds that Dave Nagata did most of the drawings — but it does give a general sense of Bass’ rough, hand-cut style.

Jump to Typographica for more Bass-inspired fonts, like this one:
