So I found this awesome graphic artist, Johny Selman. And I’ve been checking his website daily. Let me tell you what his mission is. He found that more and more of us today are getting our news online and if these stories were more graphically interesting… maybe more of us would be checking in to see what they were all about. Cool, right? Here’s what he had to say:
I will do this by creating a more visually interesting vehicle for the news, use a credible news source (BBC), and promote, market, and network. I will design a poster a day for 365 days in reaction to a headline on the BBC news website and update this website everyday with the poster and the accompanying news story.
What I really enjoy about him is that he has done these amazing graphic designs to tell the news story from the BBC and unlike most artists’ he doesn’t explain his process in a little paragraph below his work… instead he only has the article which inspired the design. LOVE it. Here are some of my favorites. And add him to your blogroll because he is the bomb.dot.com.
Horribly upsetting story; however, I love the historical art reference. You can never have too much Venus of Willendorf (22,000 BCE)- one of the oldest art history artifacts and known for its fertillity symbology. Smart Art… I love it.
Johnny Selman, you rock. Check him out at his website HERE.
