Margaret Kilgallen has long been one of my favorites. Her bold, flat colors and folk typography from a different era get me every time. There’s nothing but authenticity when I see her work.
Her work is on display at San Francisco’s Ratio 3 gallery for the summer. And if I knew what was good for me, I’d find a cheap flight up there to check it out.
A couple months ago, a bunch of buddies and I started playing soccer again. Just a rag-tag group of good guys and good beer drinkers, playing for all the pride and glory. Our squad, Real Long Beach United is 2-1-1 going into our last game of the regular season. Since then, the spark for soccer and all things glorious is at an all time high.
These animations by Richard Swarbrick are both.
Almost everyday, I grab some sort of gem off the interwebs and tuck it in a dated folder. A bunch of stuff that intrigues me. All for reference, influence and inspiration. These don’t even count everything that ends up on The BS Report.
I go through them occasionally, scrolling through them like you might flip through a magazine. I started dating the folders, to give a reference point to the tears. Rather than just having one large folder, with everything piled in, the dates give an idea of when and why it was tucked away. It’s funny to look back through, I can tell what kind of projects I was working on or getting ready to work on.
