Just erase: words, commas, sentences to reveal the true emotion and find poetry. Newspaper Blackout, a Tumblr blog of Austin-based artist and writer Austin Kleon (included in TIME magazine’s list of the 30 Must-See Tumblr Blogs) creates”blackout poetry” just by blacking out unwanted text with a permanent marker and revealing new and shorter versions of poetic expression.

What do designers do after they read a book? Do they discuss about it as regular bibliophiles? Do they write fun fiction as regular nerds? Nope, they each create a book cover and post it on the book cover club, for your enjoyment:

We’ve seen innumerable photos of them in every imaginable setting. Publicity shots and paparazzi shots. But the shots featured in This is not porn have the rare quality of capturing the real person. Carrie Fisher and her stand double sunbathing in their iconic Princess Leia bikinis. Salvator Dalí skipping rope. Dustin Hoffman goofing behind Sir Lawrence Olivier’s back. Hunter S. Thomson, John Cusack, Johnny Depp and an inflatable doll.

Whoever is behind 3eanuts had a brilliant idea. First came the observation: “Charles Schulz’s Peanuts comics often conceal the existential despair of their world with a closing joke at the characters’ expense”. Then the execution: just omit the last panel of the comic strip and sink in a bleak, black and white world, filled with…
A true existentialist masterpiece.

I love contrasts. Of color, of texture, of style. And a contrast of style is what first caught my eye in Ming Makes Cupcakes. That and my weak spot for cupcakes, that is. But back to the point: I just love the contrast between the luscious maximalism of the cupcakes and the severe minimalism of the layout. Oh the conflict, the tension!
But I want to give (more) credit where credit is due. The recipes themselves are great, with some twists and surprises (flourless chocolate cupcakes anyone? Sour cream fig cupcakes? Port wine and cherry chocolate? Beet chocolate?). I plan to start trying them ASAP.
Oh, and a last note on usability: although every recipe (image & text) is an image, the blog has a text only version where you can read and copy/paste text from. Nothing to complain about.

We’ve recently published a lot of posts about posters we loved and we praised every single one of them. So, this time, I can’t find enough words to express how much I really love this minimal movie poster series by BrickHut. You see, they hit me hard both conceptually and aesthetically. To the point of creative envy. I just find them so inspired.
