Norman Mailer, The Faith of Graffiti

In 1973, author Norman Mailer teamed with photographer Jon Naar to produce The Faith of Graffiti, a fearless exploration of the birth of the street art movement in New York City. The book coupled Mailer’s essay on the origins and importance of graffiti in modern urban culture with Naar’s radiant, arresting photographs of the young graffiti writers’ work.

Mad Men Falling Man Street Posters Humorously Altered

You may remember we recently posted about the stark minimalistic “falling man” poster that was created to promote the upcoming fifth season of Mad Men. Well, the street version of that poster has taken on a meme of its own, where it has been humorously altered (either in real life or digitally) to incorporate the “falling man” into a funny scene. He can now be found breakdancing, bouncing on a trampoline and being saved by Superman.

Great physicists and their blackboards.

Fantastic! For a while I was collecting these at The Art of Chalkboards, but now I just keep these tags:

Walls Notebook

Walls Notebook is a notebook / sketchbook that features 80 pictures of “clean” NYC walls instead of blank pages. Write, draw, paste, or doodle on these inspirational backdrops. You’ll be one step closer to being the street artist you’ve always wanted to be … minus the jail time.

Fun idea. Filed under: drawing on the walls. (Thanks, Paige!)

"No Standing, Only Dancing" by Rennie Ellis, 1974

Australian photographer Rennie Ellis (1940-2003), manifested his lust for life in the incredibly raw and titillating images of ’70s & ’8os that perfectly capture the heyday of Rock ‘n’ Roll rebellion, sexual experimentation, high fashion & tomfoolery.

Don’t miss the pic of Bon Scott & Angus Young.

Stop-motion drawing video by willbryantplz:

Mercer, a human resources consulting firm, commissioned us to create this short to promote their new website.

I worked with ole Adam Voorhes once again to create several promotional stop motion pieces. This one features me drawing on glass and an original composed track by my friend Tim DeLaughter aka Newton Tenderfoot (of The Polyphonic Spree).

Love this. It’s hard to get sick of drawing + stop motion. Filed under: drawing on the walls
