Signalnoise’s James White Creates Proper ‘Green Lantern’ Poster, Teaches You His Process

Visual artist and designer James White has drawn our attention for more than a few months now. He makes art both colorful and cool. The above fan made Green Lantern movie poster falls under both.

The Lantern in this design is obviously not the Ryan Reynolds version. They modernized his costume for the film with neat effects and all that which I’m sure will look cool onscreen, but my Lantern is the classic Hal Jordan version with the nicely designed black and green cloth and white gloves.

We never realized how much the white gloves made the black and green uniform pop visually until they put that fiber and mesh green outfit on Ryan Reynolds for the movie. Maybe Reynolds’ suit will look better as a finished effect.

WATCH: David McCandless Talk the Beauty of Data Visualization. “Data is the New Soil”

Here we present to you a delightful TED talk featuring journalist/programmer Davd McCandless.

When David McCandless began speaking of combing the language of the eye with the language of the mind the obvious connection came to us.

“It’s two languages working together at the same time.”

Teen Goalie Graphic Designs Camouflage Pads

The line between geek and athlete continues to blur.


Using computer skills he learned in a graphic design class at the private school in South Hamilton, Leahy sketched out new leg pads that blend into the goal netting behind him. He wanted pads, a trapper, and a blocker that are white with a raised double-stitched design, just like the goal. He applied for a design patent and had them custom-made by a Canada-based pad maker.

“When the shooter comes down and only has a split second to shoot the puck, they’re looking for net,” said Leahy, a senior from Hampton, N.H., who grew up in Byfield. “If you put the net on the pad, they’ll shoot at the pad instead of the goal.”
