Flying People in New York City

January 30, 2012

How fun is this? The marketing team behind the movie Chronicle built three RC planes in the shape of human beings and flew them around New York City to create the illusion of superheroes zooming around iconic landmarks. Say what you will about this being a viral marketing ploy, I would much rather watch this than a 60-second trailer on TV. Well done. And also, I want one. (via gizmodo)

Vasco Mourao

Vasco Mourao is an architect and illustrator originally from Portugal who now lives and works in Barcelona. His densely illustrated cities and structures are drawn entirely by hand and while all are of course fictional places, they often incorporate real buildings. For instance, in the most dense piece above entitled New Yorker one can find the Chrysler building, the Met, the Whitney, and the Guggenheim among others—it’s like architectural Where’s Waldo! Another piece, Is it me or is Barcelona falling apart?, includes a wide variety of less iconic structures Mourao found around the city, and the last two illustrations are available as limited edition prints from his shop. Thanks for sharing your work with Colossal, Vasco!

A lovely photo series of New York’s Williamsburg Bridge by Brooklyn-based photographer Mon Zamora.

Update: See the colorful ovals pasted to the metal rafters above the bridge? They’re actually part of an ongoing art project called Baji Lives by artist Peter Brock. Thanks to both Hrag and Peter himself for bringing this to my attention!

Brooklyn-based artist and architect Olalekan Jeyifous has some great prints in his shop, my favorite above. Wish he made these of a few more cities.

A brilliant time capsule of life in New York in the early 20th century captured by photographer Eugene de Salignac who shot this group of dapper looking bridge painters dangling on the Brooklyn Bridge’s suspension cables. Found on the Flickr stream for the Museum of Photographic Arts. (via sabino)




Typographic Transit Maps

I’m enjoying these slick minimalist public transportation maps available at TRNSPRTNATION. Each train route is comprised of a long, repeated list of the station stops from that line. Only $25. They have maps available for Chicago, New York, London, San Francisco, Boston, and Washington D.C. (thnx, ryan!)
