The Signs of Austin

the signs of austin, texas

I’ve lived in Austin, and I know a lot of you are from there or have at least visited (especially if you ride bikes). One thing I noticed on my first visit was all the great signage. Whether it’s hand painted or big neon, there is cool signage all over town.

I just came across “The Signs of Austin” site, which has illustrations of recognizable signs by Reagan Ray and some facts about each one. It’s pretty rad, go HERE to check it out.

This fantastic symbol that you may have been seeing all over social media is by graphic designer Jean Jullien, and it’s very appropriate right now.

Chris Piascik – Another 1000 Days of Drawing


We’ve featured Chris Piascik numerous times on the site before, so it only makes sense to let you all know about his new Kickstarter for “Another 1000 Days of Drawing” (as a follow up to “1000 Days of Drawing”). Go HERE for more info. Chris posts daily drawings on his site and Instagram and plans to run a second book of these rad illustrations.

In Residence : César Cervantes

Nowness has this great series on architect’s and artist’s homes and spaces called “In Residence” that always seems to draw me in when I scope out the site. Some of the pieces grab my attention more than others and this one features an eerie little piece on a utopian home designed by Mexican architect Luis Barragán. I get some Kubrick(ian) vibes from this one and I love the touches of shadows of figures hinted at in some of the shots….oh and it’s a pretty rad space too.
