Laura Williams





A couple of days ago I received an email from North Carolina artist Laura Williams who has a portfolio filled with some rather beautiful patterns. All of her patterns are rather sophisticated feeling and seem contemporary without going too far and looking like a sad pattern you might see in Z Gallerie. I also love how she uses color, a lot of these remind of Fantasia, and I mean that in a really good way.

Kayce Lomas



Kayce Lomas created this awesome little alphabet made up of random textures that correspond to the letter. So as you can see in the top image The A is a sea anemone, the B is Barnacles, the C is clouds and the D is diamonds. This isn’t a new idea but it’s a well-executed one and I think she did a great job of giving these letters a lot of character. I really love the N, which I think is a nest, and the Q which I think is made of quartz.

Merry X-Mas, I hope you’re having a nice holiday or are happy doing whatever you may do. I decided that my present to you this year would be a shiny new Mixtape called What’s To Come Hasn’t Come Yet.

This mix is filled with song that remind me of winter, or the idea of winter. I wanted something soft and beautiful to listen to, so I put together this little collection of songs that make me think of snow and peaceful things. The main theme of the songs is a lot of acoustic guitars as well as pianos, which flow throughout most of them. I think this turned out pretty well, though the Andrew Bird song is called Master Sigh not Sign, but I’ll fix that on Monday. I hope you enjoy this and have a wonderful holiday and a happy new year.

Here’s the track listing:

01 St. Echo by Atlas Sound
02 Still by Volcano Choir
03 I Remember by Devendra Banhart
04 Foreground by Grizzly Bear
05 Donkey Ride by Windsor for the Derby
06 Crosswinds by J. Tillman
07 Om Nashi Me by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes
08 Movement II: Sleeping Invader by Sufjan Stevens
09 Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll) by Yim Yames
10 Master Sigh by Andrew Bird
11 Saturday Sun by Nick Drake

The Holiday Wallpaper Competition Winner – Humanhand

The Holiday Wallpaper Competition Winner - Humanhand

Humanhand

I decided to create a third place winner as well because I loved their wallpaper so much. It’s from a group of Hawaiin desginers who call themselves Humanhand. They created a very pretty wallpaper that sums up a Hawaiian holiday beautifully. In good conscience I couldn’t let this amazing wallpaper be wasted. You can download it by clicking here.

The Holiday Wallpaper Competition Winner – Hendra Permana

The Holiday Wallpaper Competition Winner - Hendra Permana

Hendra Permana

Coming in second place was Hendra Permana, an Indonesian designer/illustrator who came up with a clever way of detaching from your computer. I also love the little icon of the Santa riding the bike, which is the focus of the iPhone wallpaper as well. Good job Hendra, you totally nailed it.
