Black Swan.

I’m a big fan of Darren Aronofsky and can hardly wait to see his latest film, Black Swan. Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis star in the thriller that zeros in on a relationship between a veteran ballet dancer and her rival. (You can check out the creeptastic trailer here.) Until then I’m content to ogle these gorgeous limited edition prints. I love how the same design style is used throughout, but the font use successfully varies with each print. Lovely, brave work.

Alice in Wonderland.

I’ve been waiting for Tim Burton’s remake of Alice in Wonderland for at least the past year, maybe longer. I’m not a die-hard fan of the original, but I am a big fan of Tim Burton and of course, Johnny Depp. And now we’ve all got just about a month left because on March 5th it hits theaters. Don’t you just love the tag line? We Are All Mad Here.


Happy {Columbus Day} Weekend.

Art & Copy.

I’m stoked to see Art & Copy! Four years in the making, it’s a film about advertising and inspiration (yes and yes!) directed by Doug Pray. Art & Copy reveals the work and wisdom of some of the most noted ad creatives of our time and the cultural impact their work has on society. (Psst… it’s already open in select cities as of August 21st…)
