A collaboration between illustrator Jingyao Guo and small batch design brand ODLCO, these World Marketplace posters are like the Where’s Waldo immersion-thing, rendered in Jingyao’s totally amazing low-polygon illustration style. Some of the most famous outdoor markets, dense with visceral food stuffs, smells, light & signage make for great repeat viewing.
The posters are available on Kickstarter for another week or so, and are nicely priced at $25. Comes with a rad coloring book, too!

Tell us about your new book,’12 Days of New York’
’12 Days of New York’ is a picture book I illustrated, published by Abrams. It is written by Tonya Bolden to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas, about a class field trip NYC. It’s basically an arty tourist picture book, where every spread has a famous NYC landmark. I love drawing city life, so when Chad Beckerman offered me the job I was thrilled – knowing I could make it really special and very different from other New York City books. Plus, I always loved ‘This is New York’ by M. Sasek and I saw this as my chance to do my own version.
Beautifully simple, innocently carefree work by Amyisla Mccombie, a recent graduate of University College Falmouth. Based in the UK, she is a freelance illustrator and set designer.
Masako Kubo lives and works in Tokyo. She studied illustration at University College of Falmouth, England.
Miroco Machiko lives and works in Japan. Her charming flora and fauna paintings amaze, with their fauvistic use of color and primitive linework. Gorgeous.
Really loving the experimental type and illustration from Anton Pearson, a recent grad from Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Thanks for the email.
