October Revolution exhibition in Šibenik, Croatia

To mark the 100th anniversary of the 'October Revolution' Serge Serov decided to invite a big group of prominent graphic designers around the world to create a poster as a personal assessment on what has happened in those 100 years.

Serge Serov is the President of the Moscow International Biennial of Graphic Design "Golden Bee" and Head of the Department of School of Design RANHiGS.

On September 6th, after Moscow, and before Germany, UK, Czech Republic, Montenegro and the US, 49 works from the project will be shown at the 5th FALIS Festival in Šibenik, Croatia.

I'm honored that my poster is one of the selected ones.

Roman Cieslewicz's posters

Not to think I just like and collect comics, I like and collect other things too. Recently, I got myself this two beautiful posters by Roman Cieslewicz, Polish-French designer. His Amnesty International poster is probably one of my favorite posters. This one is even signed and numbered. I wrote about the influence of that poster on my work in Stefan Sagmeister's book Made you look.

This is the second time I own a copy of this poster. The first one I donated to MoMA.
Later, I regretted it and managed to get another one.

Don't misunderstand me, I like the poster for Moscow Paris show too.

Art Deco sketch

I got myself this little Art Deco sketch probably from the 1920s and probably for a movie poster. Seems like the male actor was Louis Staub. Hard to know.

Louis Raphael "Bull" Durham (born Louis Raphael Staub; June 27, 1877 – June 28, 1960) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball. He pitched in 2 games for the Brooklyn Superbas in 1904, 2 games for the Washington Senators in 1907 and five games for the New York Giants during 1908 and 1909.

Durham was born in New Oxford, Pennsylvania and grew up in Pennsylvania. After he began playing minor league baseball he got into trouble with the league due to a fight in a bar. He was banned, but found a loophole by changing his name to "Bull Durham." Once he finished his baseball career in 1909, he began acting and had roles in several silent films.

Casey Ruggles Caught.

I just caught "Casey Ruggles" with his pants down.

Original daily strip "Casey Ruggles" by Warren Tufts from the "The Marchioness of Grofnek" from
4-6-1953, one of the few relatively light-hearted Casey Ruggles stories.
