Google has created one of its most elaborate doodles yet to celebrate the 60th anniverary of the first book publication by Stanislaw Lem, the Polish science fiction author whose works included the novel Solaris. The animated doodle features a pensive character with a striking resemblance to Lem who, after some thought, comes face to face with a giant robot. Visitors to Google can use their cursor to interact with the robot, whose chest appears to contain a rather unreliable calculator. The doodle’s fairly lengthy animation sequence ends with the message that the art was inspired by Daniel Mroz’s illustrations for The Cyberiad, a series of short stories by Lem.

The first in a series of forthcoming projects from Vans OTW advocates including Cartoon, Elms, Dimitri Coste and The Blackouts, the book was created in conjunction with Mr. Cartoons “Art of Lettering” seminar held in Los Angeles this summer. The seminar featured Cartoon discussing how lettering has impacted his life – from graffiti art to vintage sign painting and modern day low rider script as well as illustration airbrushing and his concepts of tattooing. The limited run of 818 books are available at select OTW retailers worldwide. (via Highsnobiety).
Probably best known for his neon light sculptures and skate decks emblazoned with witty, hip-hop-inspired statements, Patrick Martinez has been a busy man lately. In addition to unveiling a window installation at Factory 413 on Fairfax, he has also once again transitioned into the realm of film. His latest short piece, entitled “LA Sign Exchange,” is a self-proclaimed dialogue with the streets of the iconic California city during nightfall. Scored to an old-school jazz soundtrack, the film focuses on lights, the skyline, cars and (of course) neon signs both in windows of shops and (of course) neon signs both in windows of shops and of Martinez’s own creation.

I’m very excited, just because The Big Lebowski is one of my favourite movies. If you’re not a control freak and you’re a man the last thing you think before throwing a big messy party is to buy the coasters. (Coasters are those circular papers to put under the glass). BUT these are hilarious and made by Ruff House Art… don’t forget the White Russian.! You can buy them on Etsy for $12.00
The coasters are letterpress printed on my 1915 Hand Operated Chandler & Price press. They are printed on heavy coaster stock paper. The coasters are 4″ round and come packaged in a clear protective box. This set includes 10 variety Coasters. Dude.
