George Lois Can Still Kick Your Ass

When George Lois wants something, he usually gets it. Whether it’s Maypo, Matzo, or MTV, the advertising and design legend has won many more battles than he’s lost. And at 81 years old, Lois still approaches life like it’s something to be fought over and enjoyed and laughed about later. He has lived a...

Avengers Assembled, the Sequel

J.J. Sedelmaier’s recent post on Superman got my comic book mojo going. I’ve always been more of a Marvel guy myself and it got me thinking about this piece I did a year and half ago for Imprint about the wild rumors surrounding the highly anticipated Avengers movie. Now that we know a lot more...

Timothy Goodman's Valentine's Day Gift To You

Our good friend and frequent contributor, Timothy Goodman, is crazy. Crazy in love that is. And to prove his passionate devotion to all things romantic, he has undertaken an ambitious projects all in the name of love (and @timothyogoodman #selfpromotion of course).

Death on the Mountain

It’s end-of-the-year, new-calendar time again. You might be tempted by cats wearing silly hats, or hot girls on the hood of cars, or fast airplanes or cute babies. OR, if you want to try something completely different, you could go with artist Abbey Luck‘s little twisted gem, “Death on the Mountain”, a collection of...

New Miami Marlins "Rainbow Bright" Logo Way Off Base

So far the biggest story to come out of baseball’s early off-season isn’t some splashy free agent signing or the abrupt retirement of St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa, but that of the logo and uniform redesign of the Florida Marlins. If you haven’t seen the new look yet, it will be officially announced...
