I withstood posting this 2011 lunar calendar poster from Dmtr.org last week in part because I’ve posted ten billion calendars this month, but also because it was missing the all important buy link. Well, I’m caving. The buy link mysteriously appeared this weekend and this sweet print is all yours for a mere $50.
Embroidery month continues here at Colossal. After a road trip across the U.S., Buckinghamshire-based artist Peter Crawley was inspired to stitch his travels onto a map. Apparently Crawley took to the medium rather quickly and he’s been unable to put down the thread ever since. His portfolio is chalk full of architectural renderings, geometric forms, typography and other illustrations all painstakingly sewn into pierced watercolor paper using cotton thread.

Alec Thibodeau’s “Pineal Grigio” measures 19″ by 11.75″, the exact same dimensions as his 2008, 2009, and 2010 lunar calendars. The limited edition letterpress printed lunar calendar details the 365 phases of the moon for 2011. A continuation of the past three years’ calendar illustrations, the piece is the fourth installment in Alec’s Lunar Calendar Series. The calendar is based on the skies of Providence, Rhode Island but will function accurately anywhere in the Eastern Time Zone and to within a day of accuracy for any location in the Northern Hemisphere. Special illustrations represent New Moon, First Quarter Moon, Full Moon and Third Quarter Moon for each four week cycle. Clouds serve as placeholders in months with fewer than 31 days.
And it glows. In the freaking dark. And is also sold out. Emoticon sad face. On a related note the #1 item on Colossal that drives search traffic is this 2011 Moon Phase Calendar by Irwin Glusker available right this second at MoMa. (via poster district)
I think I just had a cutegasm. In the words of the great Mitch Hedberg in his koala infestation bit, “Hey, hold on fellas, let me hold one a you … and feed you a leaf.” Get prints of these fuzzy critters and many more over at The Animal Print Shop featuring the fine art photography of Sharon Montrose.

The World is a painting about information overload. It depicts the world as swirling information that is always changing, often inaccurate, while somewhat illuminating. It is expressionistic information.
You can purchase the full set of 16 prints, or order single panels that will be selected at random and shipped to you. A full one-third of the proceeds will benefit Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.
