Nicely animated eye-illustration via robotmafia

927 // Maulwurfstadt

A nice present from my sister Jenny: Maulwurfstadt – “city of moles”. By Torben Kuhlmann.

Obviously I am fascinated by the main cover, but the whole short story is nicely illustrated… including much more gears and cogs as well as other machinery items. Thanks a lot, Jenny!


And there is an animated trailer as well. Have a look!

Nice one!


This vintage travel poster was produced by the Danish cartoonist and graphic designer Ib Antoni (1929-1973). In 1967, this design was used to represent the Danish industry at the World’s Fair in Montreal.

Time Management – a nice project by Kyle Bean (who is the artist behind my “The Sea Of Time”-animation).
“Self Magazine approached me to illustrate a feature concerned with different aspects of time management. I created a series of objects reflecting the different aspects of the story. Photography: Aaron Tilley”

My brother Paul told me to have a look at the book cover of the UK edition of Cory Doctorow‘s novel “Pirate Cinema”.

Nice one – and another good reason to read this book.

Interesting as well – as I am always interested in machine-like eye-depcitions: The US cover for “Overlocked”:

A nice graphic used on the website of the German Grips Theater.


Based on their overall logo – a curious little guy looking out of a box, I think:


Thanks for sharing, Jenny.
