Lehel Kovács’s Google Street View series

Lehel Kovács is a Hungary-based freelance illustrator, and his recent Google Street View series of sketches is deservedly catching lots of internet attention lately. Some of my favorites appear below, but I strongly encourage you all to visit his website, Flickr stream, and blog for more (and I am so grateful for just how much more there is!):

Vintage RC Decals

*DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a racing fan. At all. Ever. Uh-uh.

BUT… I gotta give it to the vintage decals. Who knew?

All images above graciously borrowed from Vintage RC Web, discovered via Ministry of Type.

Mel’s ATCs

I was looking up some vintage Remington ads, and I randomly stumbled upon a Flickr set devoted to ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), which I had never heard of. In case you haven’t heard of them either: they’re basically mini collages, and there’s this whole community of artists who make and trade them. I have to admit, after looking at Mel’s Flickr set of her ATCs, I’m super tempted to try some of my own. I’ll keep you posted if that actually happens.

Some of my favorite images from Mel’s Flickr stream:

That last one is a clock, isn’t that cool?

ps) the Ohio references make this native Ohioan (me) very happy.

Pan Tu Nie Stał

Pan tu nie stał, meaning You Were Not Standing Here, is a Polish design blog created by sociologist Justyna Burzyńska and graphic designer Maciej Lebiedowicz, who are heavily inspired by vintage Polish designs from the 1930s onward. But that’s not all: they also have a shop by the same name, which features clothing, home decor, accessories, and paper products. Oh, and did I mention that they ROCK?

Just look:

All of the beautifully vibrant and inspiring images above are borrowed from their blog, which you can access (along with their shop) HERE.

French Friday!

For this week’s installment of French Friday, I thought I’d pull a Sarah Palin and go all rogue on y’all by selecting some francophone images from SwissMiss’s blog. After all, I never specified whether the “French” in French Friday referred to the nationality or the language, right? Aren’t I tricky? Yeah, I know. But I’m going to throw in some vintage Citroën ads for good measure.
