David Huyck’s wonderful Cloudy Collection is already back again with a second edition of beautiful two color silkscreened prints. This time around the artists involved are David, my old chum S.Britt, Scott Campbell, Bwana Spoons, Chris Eliopolus, Vera Brosgol and Vincent Stall. The theme of this series is Hovels & Hideaways, which is such a cute idea and the artists really nailed the concept.
Pick up some for yourself, their only $35 for all of ‘em, plus free shipping in the U.S. and Canadia.
More previews under the cut.

New York art darlings Faile have made themselves a fancy a new site and, along with it, has updated it with fresh new work. They’re also posting photos from their shows as well, as you can see in the images above, which is nice for those of us who may have missed out. The photos are of Faile’s show last year at the Tate Modern in London. I’m currently madly obsessed with that amazing flag image they’ve created, like I want it tattooed on me I’m so in love with it.

About Your Wallpaper:
Before getting asked to do this project Ive always had a picture of grass as my background because It reminds me of home. The juxtoposition of something natural on something that is not makes for an interesting image. I also love pastel like colours so this is why I chose to paint the stones and photograph them on a background of grass.
I figured that this would be a nice, calm way to ease everyone into their weekend. I hope everyone has a good one!
I’ve had the wonderful illustrations of Toru Fukuda bookmarked for a while, but today seemed like a good to finally post about them. Toru is an illustrator living in Tokyo who has this wonderfully simple and almost childlike nature to his work. All of his characters have so much life to them, and his punches of color just make his work even better. His drawings remind me a lot of books I read as a kid, but I can’t think of anything particular it reminds me of. Nonetheless, his work never fails to make me smile.
Earlier today I came across these great little bikes called Jopo, a brand that I’d never heard of. I haven’t been able to find out a lot about these bikes, but that’s where I’m hoping you wonderful readers can come in and help. So far I’ve figured out that thye were manufactured in Finland starting in the mid-60′s. I guess they’re pretty well known over in the Scandanavian areas?
I also know that they look realllllly cool. I love how the frame of the bike is shaped, with that big curve in the middle. That little rack above the back wheel is also pretty great, you could easily transport groceries and things around town. Also, just for clarification, the top photo is the old school one (I think) and the bottom photo is the new version. I definitely prefer the old version much more, especially the angular chain guard thing-y.
Anyone know where I could get one of these in Los Angeles for a good price?
I posted a couple more photos under the cut that I thought were neat, check ‘em out.
