Blue – without a doubt my favourite hue of all. There’s a fascinating read on the Tate blog of the importance of blue in art’s history, from ultramarine to Yves Klein, and Matisse’s striking blue nudes.

Read it, here  Happy weekend.

gorgeous graphics (and a good cause).

Recently discovered (via this lovely interior design blog), the graphic artist Jason Munn who began making posters ten years ago for local venues and independent musicians; he has now added design and illustration commissions to his repertoire. Some of his work is in the permanent collection at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Denver Art Museum. I love the simple, clean graphics, retro quality and bold but muted colour palette..
