After all the shit that went down in Haiti last year a creative team as assembled with the following artists. David Choe, Sam Flores, Estevan Oriol, Grotesk, Jeremy Fish, Patrick Martinez, Alex Pardee, Dora Drimalas, Munk One, N8 Van Dyke, Rene Alamanza, Morning Breath and Skinner Davis, to create their own poster art based off their interpretation of the Oscar Nominated film, “Inglourious Basterds” artwork.
Basically every artists included in that list is amazing. I've posted about Morning Breath and Grotesk before. Hard to pick two of my favourites but I had to go for Morning Breath and David Choe.
All the work was then sold in limited edition at $300 in a gallery in Los Angeles with all proceeds going towards aid in Haiti. Fresh.

This is Karen Caldicott's new McDonald's campaign, with some background images on the process
The campaign is by DDB Vienna for McCafé and centres around the idea of how you might feel if you don't get your morning coffee.
I Like the direction they've taken but at the same time seems a little anti McDonalds..
BIG fan of the art directors Morning Breath on this album art design.
The designers from the Brooklyn-based design firm Morning Breath, have quickly expanded beyond their Think skateboards start to becoming two of the finest graphic designers working today.
Doug Cunningham and Jason Noto combine found objects and pop-culture throwaways, old print advertisements, 1950s and 60s pop-culture images, graffiti writing, pin-up girls and good old-fashioned graphic arts techniques to create their layered canvases. This is the duo’s first book; it provides good insight into their many personal and commercial art projects, as well as their collaborations with Upper Playground and FIFTY24SF.

SAN basically got me interested in real intricate muted coloured illustration.
I love that real organic shit but still maintaing the street influence.
He's one of those artists that you never appreciate fully into you see his work in the flesh, so much hidden detail. Occasionally he has work in Brighton near Toast near the station at the lil' gallery place.
THERE'S SO MUCH WORK THAT'S WORTH SEEING, CHECK OUT HIS WEBSITE ESEAENE.COM.
DON'T MISS THE HANDSTYLES! ONE OF THE BEST IN THE GAME
Don't know what it is with Swedish born New York graphic designers but they're ALWAYS sick. I've always liked how he never overdoses on the elements and takes it's back to the roots by simplifying the shapes and embracing the hand drawn element.
Strong colour and message with simple illustration.
So much of his stuff to pick from but I was feeling this something wicked...
NIKE's got to him first but look out for some big collaborations coming out September 2011 as well as his new book "10 years of swiss design lost in Brooklyn."
My man needs to BUSSS!
PARRA is definitely the hottest dutch artist doing his thing at the moment for me. We saw him step up with the Nike X Parra 2009/10 range but now he's doing his own thing with Rockwell Designer Clothing. NOTHING but a good look going on with his shit, check out the bed sheet flex!
& Anybody pick up any of these? Parra X Vans Chukka's...
If not mine are hanging up on St. Benedicts street Norwich. RIP.
