• Feast your eye (well, eyes) on the new Eye magazine website. The London-based graphic design review’s overhauled online home incorporates the four-year-old Eye blog as well as an issue archive that goes all the way back the first issue in 1990. Look for more writing from the archives and many more images to be added in the coming months. Get a taste of the latest issue–#83–with Adrian Shaughnessy’s reevaluation of Herb Lubalin.

• Comics legend Stan Lee has turned to Facebook for some crowdsourced captions. Learn more about the contest from our sister site, Galleycat.

• Our friends at the art flash sale site Exhibition A are preparing to showcase their suitable-for-framing wares in the real world. On Saturday, the Exhibition A Pop Up Gallery will take over Half Gallery in NYC. Stop by between noon and 6 p.m. to preview and collect prints by the likes of Olaf Breuning, Les Rogers, and Jessica Craig-Martin. Not in New York? Peruse the latest crop of offerings at your leisure online.

Warhol-mania has seeped across the Atlantic. Four of the artist’s portraits of Queen Elizabeth have been purchased for the Royal Collection Trust, to mark the still-jubilant Jubilee year. The works will go on view at Windsor Castle in November as part of an exhibition of portraits fit for a queen.

Through its real-time visual media platform made up of subject-based channels such as people, places, and topics, Mobli aims to “allow users to see the world through other people’s eyes.”
