Traveling is one of my favorite past times, and it’s always exciting for me to see illustrated maps like these created by UK based illustrator Owen Gatley. He’s created a handful of city maps for Ling magazine, Vueling Airlines’ inflight magazine, depicting some of their many destinations. Each map is colorful and thoughtfully composed with its collection of intricate and sometimes humorous imagery, capturing some of my favorite things about traveling, including food and drink, cultural landmarks, and activities. It makes me want to hop on a plane somewhere and discover these little treasures on my own.

Besides map making, Owen has a nice variety of illustrations that often employs the use of pencil, which have a great textural quality. With so many little details, each illustration feels like a I’m peering into a miniature land. I just want to see all the happenings and collect every image and detail.

Pulled: A Catalog of Screen Printing

mike perry pulled

Very excited to see the latest from Mike Perry. Continuing in a similar vein as his other books, Mike does a great job of delving into a specific theme and highlighting important work and people.

Pulled takes a look at design through the medium of screen printing, and shows a wide variety of examples. There’s some really lovely work in here — I also find it helpful to see the results from different designers, and to see what’s achievable with screen printing.

Hailing from Melbourne, Australian designer Sam Chirnside creates some fresh graphical work. Sam’s visual themes tend to weigh on the cryptic side with his use of darker imagery and glyphic geometries to create stunning type. I really enjoy his use of grainy textures to add dramatic tone and give the work the perception of being rendered in pencil. Sam’s client list includes Volcom, 55dsl, and Handsome Clothing. On his website he also holds down a great inspirational blog with his own work sprinkled in.

Thankyou ALL! 

🙂 

I love blogging and finding great things to post on here. We’ve been apologizing for 6 months now for a slow down in the frequency of posts, but if anything I hope we can keep up the quality and maintain an excellent catalogue of design inspiration. 

We are busy working day to day, which makes a lot less time for internet scouring sadly.

A while back, Grain Edit pal Sanjay Patel enthusiastically showed us a comic titled Ouroboros by British illustrator Ben Newman. In addition, he also showed us an awesome vinyl toy based on the comic. I was completely smitten with what I saw, and have had a major illustrator-crush on Ben’s work since then. His style is fresh and unique with its fun characters, bright colors, fuzzy textures and complex layering of shapes, and this piece from a developing print series “Masks” is no exception.

To see more of Ben’s work, visit his website and be sure to stop by his shop and pick up some wonderful prints. In addition, his works are also available through No Brow press.
