“In Oct 2010 while on a research trip in Tajikistan I came across a curious scrapbook of Soviet-era graphics in a junk-shop in the capital city Dushanbe.
Within it were pages with collaged panels containing imagery ranging from depictions of cosmonauts, political figures, musical iconography and political illustrations in Constructivist and Suprematist styles.
In some cases panels were glued top of other images and sometimes with interesting juxtapositions – images of birds coupled with communist slogans and geometric forms.”
LOVE these! Lots more at mr prudence’s photostream here. First seen @CreativeReview.

My friend and superstar illustrator Matthew the Horse has come together with Jon Boam to produce a range of hand tie dyed and screen printed t-shirts featuring images from the best illustrators all over the UK depicting their own ~spirit animal~ This is what Matt had to say about it all!
We love animals, they are magnificent and have powerful frequencies
We asked our favourite artists to channel their animal spirit
Each garment is tie dyed and screen printed by our warm, human hands
Look at the sky
Aha.Preeeetty good stuff. Visit their shop to see and purchase the full range of tees!
