Calendar 2012 by Irina Vinnik With the new year approaching, I am excited to represent a new Calendar. This limited edition of the yearbook called “The Eyes of Imagination” is a deep insight into my intangible imaginary world, which I’ve tried to perceive & depict. Each page portrays the spirit of the month as I see it. All of these drawing were created in 2011 and you might have already seen some of them in my sketchbook – it’s my annual report for those who love my paintings.
Harry Clarke's Haunting 1919 Illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Maria Popova Artful Edwardian-era erotica at the intersection of the whimsical and the macabre. Somewhere between Henry Holiday’s weird paintings for Lewis Carroll and Edward Gorey’s delightfully grim alphabet fall Harry Clarke‘s hauntingly beautiful and beautifully haunting 1919 illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination — a collection of 29 of Poe’s tales of the magical and the macabre. So lavish was the artwork that a copy of the “deluxe” Clarke-illustrated edition went for 5 guineas in 1919, or about $300 in today’s money. The book, an epic volume of 480 pages, was eventually reprinted by Calla Editions in 2008, and is now available for the much more reasonable $27, or free with a trip to your local public library.
Occupy Design: Visual Tools for the 99 Percent Launch Slideshow Last weekend, San Francisco, New York, and Washington, D.C. hosted spontaneous "Hackathons" to brainstorm how to use various platforms to help Occupy Wall Street.

Jake Levitas, a designer from San Francisco who's heading up the project, says it's a chance to fight back at media who characterize the movement as directionless. "These are people who have valid concerns grounded in reality and grounded in data that can be communicated visually," Levitas says.

Sketchbook Secrets: 50 Beautiful Sketchbook Scans The sketchbook is—to borrow a term from the new millenniums’ popular discourse—an artist’s BFF. It’s a diary for the visually inclined—a place where artists can most comfortably explore their personal thoughts, work out their visual needs, practice, maintain a visual history, and hopefully create the unpolished work that will eventually lead to amazing work for the world to see. But, sometimes, when we’re lucky, we get to see the process. Below are 50 beautiful sketchbook scans from 35 talented artists.
