Never a Year Like '09 is different from past JibJab movies because this time out they made most of it without computers. It was filmed using live action, finger puppets, stop animation - that is to say - cutouts, models and a camera - some of it frame by frame. That's right. JibJab went old school on this one, like a Terry Gilliam, animated, Monty Python sketch. And on the JibJab blog they take you behind the scenes. There you can dive into all the action - from the writing process to the storyboards, animatics and film making techniques.

And now for something completely different...

Sonnie | facebook

From illustrations, to street art, to exhibitions, Sonni has created a world that is nothing short of fantastic.

After visiting the Facebook page I bounced on over to the website. I wish I could have viewed the artwork at a larger scale.



What a treat this art must be at the original sizes. I had such a hard time deciding which of the images to post here. I almost wanted to post them all.

Bob Staake | facebook



Last year Bob Staake was the winner of Time's best magazine cover of 2008 for his illustration work on the November issue of The New Yorker magazine. But visit Bob Staake's facebook page and website and you'll quickly see this is only the tip of the Bob Staake iceberg. He is also the author and illustrator of over 48 award winning books and one of the most sought after humorist cartoonists/illustrators working today.

Bob Staake's work has been described as "a stylistic collision of Russian constructivism and pop art, exploding with energy and joyous intensity." You don't have to know anything about Russian constructivism to see that Bob Staake's illustrations are lessons in composition, balance and form, alive with movement, bold colors and truly imaginative characters.


Bob was nice enough to let us know, here at illustration pages, that he interacts everyday with his fans on his personal Facebook page.

Michael Doret is an award-winning letterform artist and image designer. Michael is the creator of the Knicks logo, Fuddruckers logo, several Time magazine covers and a multitude of other great logos, letterforms and illustrations too numerous to mention on this blog. His client list is most artists' wish list, Major League Baseball, the NBA, Adidas, Nike, Walt Disney Imagineering, Universal Studios, Warner Bros., the United States Postal Service, Columbia Records, Capitol Records, Playboy and more. You know his work. You've seen it everywhere. He's the real deal.

A while back I read an interview on the web with Michael Doret and I had to leave my comment, which was simply this, "Michael Doret is to typography what Jimi Hendrix was to the electric guitar - he’s in a league all his own. There’s typographers and then there’s Michael Doret. Inspirational Work!"

There's some really cool things going on over in Eric Wirjanata's world. I'm loving his paper toys, Lemi and Kyuu.



Eric's Facebook fan page already sports a pretty healthy 1,744 fans but I'm sure he wouldn't mind more. And with a website, an online store and several blogs it seems as though Eric stays pretty busy.
