ATTENTION CITIZEN>TODAYS DISPACHES FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION
The Boston Public Library has posted an amazing collection of vintage travel posters to flickr. You can see a couple of my faves below. Radical. (via Design Observer)
A bizarre and engrossing animated stream-of-conciousness series of pencil drawings, ake The Drawing Archive. It’s about 5 minutes before it looks back to the beginning, and they are well worth it – some genuinely profound and pointed images, to my mind at least. (via Kempt)
Legos rule. In addition to Mechaton, you will probably be interested in the new LEGO Architecture series, wherein iconic and majestic buildings are given their own collectors-style treatment in the little bricks. Check it out at If It’s Hip, It’s Here (way more in-depth then my breif dispatch can entail).
Speaking of If It’s Hip, It’s Here, they also tipped me off to Winkler + Noah Photography, particularly The Puppet Show. Intriguing and disturbing portraits of children, given some treatment to turn them into dolls. I leave it up to the reader as to how they feel about the images themselves, but it’s certainly some cutting commentary on how children tend to be viewed in contemporary society. Sample:
Whew. Well, final dispatch is on a lighter note: the remix artist behind the Peaches/Muppets mashup I’ve previously posted has done a similar thing for academy-award winners Three Six Mafia/Alice in Wonderland. (via Boing Boing)
