Textures like crazy. What amazing etherial worlds these are! I could not for my life figure out the name of the artist from this site I found. But these are just bits and bits of dream-like perfection.

Nice, inspirational quote. Makes me want to stargaze. Too bad it's entirely too cold for me to attempt.

Can I just move in now? This place is sick. (a) because its in the swiss alps--georgeous. (b) its underground--gah. It renders me quite speechless.

snow daze

It snowed like...lots today. Hopefully it'll stay for Christmas. But I luckily got this little guy done for my freepeople craft swap partner. If you're Ginna, act surprised when you get this.

Esperanza Moya

So foggy and ephemeral. I just can't help but be swept away by these. The colors are so soft. But still exquisitely vibrant. So perfectly unreal.

Neon Indian. My new fix.

pink and fluffy

Just adding to my obsession of warpaint. And fur. And did I mention warpaint?

Seriously rad porcelain jaw pendant by Beetle and Flor. Nothing says "I'm cool" like a half of a muskrat head hanging from your neck.

LAST DAY OF CLASS! And my lovely little alphabet book for type.

warpaint and dim lights

A few photos from a stop motion project I've been working on. Touching up a few rough spots before I get it up.

"Boredom murders the heart of our age while sanguinary creeps take the stage, boredom strangles the life from the printed page." Of Montreal owns me.

Flydende Lava

Good to look at for type and book design/layout. Awesome typeface up there. I love big geo-spacey fonts. Especially with very organic naturalistic things. There's some more humorous stuff on the site if you're more into that. Overall, really cool designer.

My inspirational quote of the day, a la M-C Turgeon.

home, sweet home

I'm having a hard time deciding if I'm in love with this house or if I'm deathly afraid of it. It reminds me of someplace Wilhelm Staehle would live. It's that old, cranky, victorian-ness.

one, two...

Due to the latest typography assignment, I will now be over-obsessive about the number 3 and everywhere I see it.

Unfortunately I forgot where I found this poster. I'm not sure if its the use of the ink or how awesome that buffalo is, but something just struck me about it. Very nice illustration.

Dan Lisowski

So today in class we had a graduate of UDVC, Dan Lisowski, come in and talk to us about what he's been up to. Wow, was it inspiring. He is a very talented illustrator, just take a look at some of his stuff. He really had a lot to say about making your work your lifestyle. Words of wisdom that I will very much take into account.

So this is a little morbid, but my beloved fish, Frenchie, died today. I never got a chance to take any pictures of him living (he was such a pretty fish), but I decided to snap some postmortem shots. He had such lovely colors. I will miss him dearly. Rest in peace, mon ami.

Must visit this site! So many freebies! Not no mention all the fun stuff to look at. Misprinted Type has some really interesting digital collages, paintings and typefaces. There's a nice mismatched, scribbly quality to this work that just makes me want to look at it forever.

Spectacular neon lights by Stefan Bruggemann. So many colors. These definitely take signs to the extreme.

black rainbows

This is just one of the amazing pieces of jewelry shown on Solange Azagury-Partridge's site. Everything is so futuristic and galactic, but so earthy and raw at the same time. It's just so satisfying to look at.

wild animal

These photos from Jane Aldridge's blog, Sea of Shoes are so playful and fun! It makes me want to go dress up and run around in the woods. And those furs! I'm all for saving animals, but you have to admit those furs are a beautiful thing.

I'm usually sort of a lone wolf when it comes to working in groups, but I thought this project was absolutely fabulous. Our group worked wonderfully together, and cranked out this crazy poster. And now it's hanging on my wall. Gotta love work you love.

So Martin D'Orgeval thought it was a good idea to set a menagerie/botany lab aflame. Was he right or what?! This place is awesome! I'd love to hear a story about it. It looks like there's some huge deep underlying plot that led to all of this beautiful destruction. I'm in awe.

I've been slightly obsessed with the idea that I'm moving into an apartment with my four friends next school year. This site ModCloth has got some really adorable stuff. All I do is surf for awesome apartment fancies, like this here sticky chalkboard frame thingy. Genius!

i heart muzic

UO is giving out five free songs on mondays? Well, that dreadful start to the week just got much better. Five hundred points to Urban Outfitters.

best homework eva

More maclab homework, yay! This is my poster for Empire of the Sun. I do believed I've posted about them before. If it's not apparent I do L them very much.

These things are genius for you animal activists out there. I want to make one myself. But maybe just antlers. And quite large. Another winter session activity to add to my ever-growing list. ugh.

watch-you wearin'?

New mission-- an obsession with timepieces. Who care's if they work? They've got class.

Monday, October 19, 2009


This equals my life right now. So busy with schoolwork and whatnot, that i've been neglecting to post. Blog-cruelty, i know.

Valerie Lueth

This just makes me want to adventure and climb mountains and such. It's a drawing by Valerie Luith for Tugboat Printshop. I've also seen pillows featuring her work at Urban. Tres cool.

This exhibition looks like so much fun! This was done by Eltono, a spanish street artist, or "public space artist" as he calls it. I would love to see graffiti done like this around where I live. Heck, I'd love to do this to buildings near me... I just lack the guts.

Tyra would be proud. Very compelling image with the wolf-skin. Way to take something pretty scary and make it beautiful. Love that necklace too. I might attempt a re-create. Hmm.

press play

Field trip today in type! We went to Raven Press, UD's personal letterpress printing studio, and this is what came of it. My group set the teeny tiny 12pt that's upsidown. Whoops. It was such a tease playing there today to learn that we won't really even get to use it this year! No fair.

rule the world

These guys are absolutely crazy! I love them exponentially! The worlds the come up with in their videos are, well, out of this world. Don't be turned off by their eccentricity though. Once you listen to the music enough it gets easier to appreciate.

Sweet drawings by Claire Scully. So intricate! Soft, but geometric. I will learn from you.
