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!

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.
