Art director Jesse Marinoff Reyes and illustrator David Cowles have been posting a series of classic movie monster graphic memorabilia on their respective social media pages this month, and we've collected our favorites here for SPD. The magazine covers include The Monster Times, Famous Monsters of Filmland, Creepy, and more, and feature illustrations by Jack Davis, Basil Gogos, Frank Frazetta, Norman Mingo, and Steve Ditko. They're guaranteed to warm the hearts of monster nerds of all ages!
Thanks to Jesse Marinoff Reyes for collaborating on this post and collection.

Biemans went on to start the very popular magazine cover site Coverjunkie, and has spent time art directing some other cool Dutch magazines, but he continued to create Intermediair covers, 50 times a year, until March of this year (he started at the magazine in 2003). Now, after 47 years of publication, Intermediair is publishing its last issue. We asked Biemans for a collection of some of his favorite covers that he produced for the magazine. You can see many more at Coverjunkie.

The New Republic recently went through a change of ownership and a move to New York City, and with that they've hired Dirk Barnett as their first full-time, on-site art director. Heroun and Car will be working on The New Republic through the end of the year, while Dirk Barnett cooks up some coolness of his own behind the scenes. It seems like a good time to look back at the amazing body of work created over the past decade by Heroun and Car.

SPD-U, our Student Outreach Committee, hosted its annual Pub(lications) Crawl event on Friday, September 28. The day was a huge success, with tours to the offices of Bloomberg Businessweek, The Huffington Post, Inked, Men's Health, People en Español, and Seventeen. Our Pub Crawl students were given their very own first-hand peek at how magazines are made, by the pros who make them.
There are two more exciting offerings for students coming up this month from SPD-U: Design Seventeen, which is a partnership with one of our Pub Crawl hosts, and an Ask The Pros Live panel discussion. Space is very limited, so be sure to register ASAP. Meanwhile, check out some some more of our Pub Crawl tour pictures after the jump.
