David Stone Martin's Mid-Century Jazz Prints

Few art forms felt as thoroughly modern at mid-century as jazz. And the graphics that accompanied and adorned those classic albums were often just as experimental and exuberant. Illustrator David Stone Martin was one of those innovators, and on the occasion of his centennial JAZZARTZ Gallery in Laguna Beach, California, has released scores of his cover designs for Billie Holiday, Lester Young, Stan Getz, and others as art prints. They range in size from 14 to 44-inch squares and will give an immediately retro vibe to the wall of your choosing. Martin's work is in the Met, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Smithsonian. Could your living room be next?

Modern Storage Solutions: 5 Smart Built-Ins and Closets

Promo Daily: Andrew B. Myers

Photographer Andrew B. Myers caught our eye with his fun promo of a Scrabble board. The simple and strong composition combined with the pastel color palette work well together. The checkered background mirrors both the squares on the board and the letter tiles. We also get introduced to Myers personality. He clearly has a sense of humor, something we like to know when sending a photographer on a shoot. All in all, this is a successful and clever promotional piece that made us chuckle and drove us right to his website.
