I saw this mural at SFMOMA a while back.  I was memorized by the stark black and white imagery and smiling at the clever, irreverent humor. I love his work.

Le Le – Breakfast from magnetron music on Vimeo.

From his website:

“Dutch artist Parra (1976) is best known for his curved post-Pop imagery, highly saturated colours, vibrant hand-drawn letters and worlds inhabited by hybrid, surreal characters. Celebrated by galleries and championed by an underground following from the outset, Parra has quickly become a respected and eclectic artist worldwide. Working across drawing, painting, animation and sculpture, Parra creates an enigmatic and instantly recognisable style that defies easy categorisation. Parra is cofounder of cult apparel label Rockwell Clothing and a member of electronic music group Le Le. Parra Lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.”

Ryan Sims – Chitwood & Hobbs

I absolutely love the design and spirit of this blog.  Love all the crisp, Futura type, the headings are great and the black & white background photos are epic.

“Chitwood & Hobbs is a blog dedicated to the intersection of sports and culture as curated by Ryan Sims and Nick Hall. We have a soft spot for the 70s and 80s before sports was all about statistics, global brands, or the 24/7 news cycle — when there only was winning.” (taken from the About page on chitwoodandhobbs.com)

Zoran Lucic – Sucker For Soccer

Simple but incredibly elegant posters of famous soccer players.  I love the faded colors and hand lettering that gives it that vintage feel. See more of Zoran’s work here.
