Fantastic new work in the form of Ferocious Quarterly, a curated publication featuring art, illustration, design, short fiction and writing. In the words of publisher Nate Utesch, FQ is “somewhere between an art and culture magazine, a coffee table art book, and an art journal.”

Blue Note Album Covers in Motion

I really enjoyed this video tribute to the legacy of Reid Miles. The piece was conceived to promote a series of summer jazz concerts at the Bella Vista Social Pub in Siena, Tuscany. If you are unfamiliar with Reid’s design work for Blue Note, Graphicology offers a side by side comparison of the reimagined covers with the original album art.

Christopher David Ryan describes himself as a “a graphic artist, illustrator, daydreamer, pseudo-scientist, wanna-be astronaut and untrained intellectual.” Recently, he published the third installment to his As Overheard in the Back of My Mind series of books, which features a collection of thoughts and images from the depths of his psyche.  Chock full of peppy people and inspirational adages, this book is a great addition to your bookshelf.
