Update of "The Design of Dissent" show at Casa del Lago

Earlier, I posted an announcement along with photographs, about the opening of The Design of Dissent at Casa del Lago in Mexico City. Unfortunately, the photographs of the show were taken during the week and therefore, did not represent the bustling nature of the park. Casa del Lago is located in the Chapultepec park, which is a traditional Sunday walk area for the citizens of Mexico City. The place gets packed with people and vendors, and looks completely different to the images on my original post.

The show was organized by Centro University and the cultural center, Casa del Lago.

"Star Hawks" by Gil Kane

I acquired this Star Hawks comic strip from 1980, created by Gil Kane.
The art is created using markers and is drawn, either over a light box, because it is drawn on relatively thin Bristol paper, or with barely any pencil drawing.

"Design In A City - 1"

Design in a city - 1 is a multi-media show which will be exhibited in 7 different public locations - non-traditional exhibition spaces - in Zagreb, Croatia. The show opens on November 8th and is organized by the Croatian Designers Association (HDD). It consists of design work that was originally displayed on the streets of Zagreb in the 60s and 70s. For more about the show, you can read here. But unfortunately, so far, the text is only in Croatian.

In the 60s and 70s, throughout the city of Zagreb, they had small window displays for public announcements. Amazingly, a few of them are still existing. The Croatian Design Society decided to showcase in them, the work of 6 designers including Mihajlo Arsovski, Dalibor Martinis, Goran Trbuljak, Nenad Pepeonik, and myself. The featured work consists of movie posters created by these designers, which back then, were displayed across the city.

Here below you can see photographs of window display with my movie posters.

Mag Men, the book

I just received an advance copy of Mag Men, a book by Walter Bernard and Milton Glaser with a foreword by Gloria Steinem.

'For more than fifty years, Walter Bernard and Milton Glaser have revolutionized the look of magazine journalism. In Mag Men, Bernard and Glaser recount their storied careers, offering insiders' perspective on some of the most iconic design work of the twentieth century.'

I am very pleased that Walter and Milton included in this book, quite a few illustrations that I have created for the magazines they have designed.
