Agustin Surai – Inventories

If you’re a designer like me (which I’m assuming most of you are), then you are well versed in all things Adobe Illustrator, and if you use AI like I do, then after a vigorous designing session your artboard surrounded your creation tends to look like a whirlwind of colorful ephemera and bits and pieces of discarded materials. That’s exactly what I though of when I first saw Agustin Surai’s Inventories series of illustrations. These pieces are like snapshots of a debris field in a hurricane – tree limbs, animals, electronics, clothing…all flying around independent of each other. Other pieces in the series seem to tell a story or collect a narrative of sorts using only the handful of objects on the canvas.

Gerd Arntz – iPhone Memory Game

A classic “memory” game created for your iPhone and iPad by the estate of legendary iconographer Gerd Arntz? And it’s free?! Simply wonderful, and a great way to get to know the work of a great designer.

Jason Polan – Every Person in NY



Jason Polan, a professional illustrator and artist, has taken on an ambitious and some would say, impossible project. He is attempting to draw a portrait of every person in New York City. You can witness his efforts at his blog which he updates every day with image after image of everyday people doing all sorts of things. Jason’s strategy is quite simple, he sits in public spaces or restaurants or parks and sketches who he sees around him.

You can follow his progress here.

And be sure to watch this MoMA 30-second film of Jason in action here.
