50 and 50: The State Mottos Project

Massachusetts by Mark Weaver

MIssissippi by WIll Bryant

Florida by Two Arms

I have to admit, I’m a little pissed that I didn’t think of this project first. It’s the brainchild of New Yorker Dan Cassaro, aka Young Jerks, who’s grabbed amazing artists from every state in the U.S. to illustrate their state motto. So far the contributors is a who’s who list of the best designers and illustrators out there like Mark Weaver, Will Bryant, Meg Hunt, Matt Stevens, Erik Hamline, Two Arms Inc. and Matt Lehman. Only seven mottos have been released, he’ll be releasing these daily, so there are still many more to come. I think it’s great that he had the artists stick to three colors, it really unifies the whole project. Great work Dan!
