Chop Shop has been arranging the icons from the most popular science fiction, fantasy and horror for some time now into various compositions that usually get printed on tshirts. Now they are taking that concept into the realm of cartography. The Altered States of America will feature some of the greatest scenes from pop-culture history illustrated into a map of the USA. Examples to include: the iconic scene of “King Kong” atop New York’s Empire State Building, the final scream scene of “Body Snatchers” outside San Francisco’s City Hall, or the unforgettable scene of a devastated Statue of Liberty on a NJ beach, just to name but a few.
The largest invitation ever mailed. The full invite with tear-offs intact (not shown) measures around 15″x19″ and printed in gold foil.
At the Chopping Block we do lots of projects that require planning and months of production and design revisions. It was nice for once to just type design a logo for an old friend’s start-up. After months of kicking around various ideas, doing this job has inspired me to take a similar approach to designing my wedding invites in a similar fashion.
After the success of our history and music of The Beatles design, We couldn’t resist doing one for the Fab Six of comedy. Our new “It’s Tee” features seventy-seven symbols that represent the comic genius of Monty Python. Several depicting some of the best-loved moments in their three films with a large majority dedicated to their “Flying Circus” television program that ran from 1969 to 1974. (more…)
