saul bass

reading the paper today about united updating their chicago terminal with their new continental logo, i got the urge to explore the work of their current and long time logo's creator - graphic designer saul bass. the list of famous logos he can take credit for is quite long and his movie posters, like the one below, are iconic.

mara metcalf

the internet is a funny thing. i stumbled upon, well not really a stumble, i googled her. so i googled my drawing teacher from the museum school, mara metcalf, and i really love the pieces that i found. mara wouldn't remember me but i remember feeling in her class that i really maybe had something to say, that was worth listening to, or as the case may be looking at. a line has meaning.
