Today is Monkey Day!

Quit monkeying around and take a moment to participate in this celebration of all things simian. Did you know that there are three distinct types of simian primates? Familiar species like baboons and macaques are classified as Old World Monkeys. Capuchins and howler monkeys are New World Monkeys, and chimpanzees and gorillas are Apes. There are currently 264 known monkey species in the world. To celebrate Monkey Day, dress in your favorite monkey attire, share your favorite monkey photo with your friends, or donate to your favorite monkey charity. While you’re at it, don’t forget to indulge in some mischievous monkey business! For more ideas, visit the official Monkey Day website. (Source: http://www.punchbowl.com)

Today in History: Edward McKnight Kauffer born in 1890

Today in History: Edward McKnight Kauffer born in 1890

127 years ago today, Edward McKnight Kauffer, one of Britain’s most influential poster artists and graphic designers between the wars, was born in Great Falls, Montana. Kauffer began his professional life as a painter in San Francisco and Chicago before studying in Paris (1913) and moving to London at the outbreak of World War I. Kauffer received his first poster commission for London Underground in 1915 and immediately embraced poster art as a form of visual communication. He designed 141 posters for the Underground and many more for clients like Shell or British Petroleum. His poster works brought the language of modern art to a large public. In 1937, the New York Museum of Modern Art held a one-man show of his work. Kauffer returned to the United States in 1940 where he produced posters for the Greek War Relief and the U.S. Treasury. After the war, he produced a series of posters for American Airlines and the New York Subway. Kauffer passed away in 1954 in New York.

David Klein was an American artist who is perhaps best known for the iconic travel images he created for Trans World Airlines (TWA) during the 1950s and 1960s. Klein studied art in Los Angeles and was a member of the California Watercolor Society during the 1930s. He served as an illustrator for the U.S. Army during World War II and moved to New York in 1953 where he worked as an art director for a theater advertising agency while also producing posters for successful plays.

Today in History: John Lennon killed in 1980

Today in History: John Lennon killed in 1980
37 years ago today, the death of English musician, songwriter and front man of the Beatles, John Lennon, sparked worldwide shock and sadness: on December 8, 1980 John Lennon was fatally shot by a deranged fan in front of his apartment complex in New York City. Together with Paul McCartney, John Lennon formed the most successful songwriting partnership in musical history. Lennon left the Beatles in 1969 and later produced albums with his wife, Yoko Ono, among others. After a 5 year break from music, Lennon had just returned to the recording studio in 1980. Tragically, only a few weeks after the release of his new album Double Fantasy, he was shot and killed.
