Back in 2010 graphic designer Jeff Gates started remixing World War II propaganda posters with new text and altered imagery focused on the current political environment in the United States. It’s all done under the guise of The Chamomile Tea Party, and so far he’s created over 100 of them! What’s more, every single one is available for free high res download! Of course if you’d rather buy a print you can do that as well, right here.)
Holy November! It always feels like Halloween is the impetus for the snowball of holidays that occur this month and next, so it’s best to get your days straight. Start by updating your desktop with this month’s calendar.
I’m not going to say it because I already know you’re thinking the same thing – how is it October already?! But I can’t complain because it’s my favorite month of the year, the weather finally cooled down as of last week, and I’m beyond ready to put a bunch of decorative gourds on my porch.
Art plays a huge role in our lives, but when it comes to decorating it can end up at the bottom of the list. (You know, after things like furniture.) I did some digging and rounded up 18 resources that will cater to all of your art needs with vintage illustrations, LIFE photography, and more! A few are a little less polished than others and require more digging for that perfect image, but they’re all treasure troves of legal art free-ness. Think outside of the 8×10 and consider printing large scale black and white engineering prints, repeating the same print in one frame, embellishing with further editing, or adding elements like paint or embroidery.
