There are lots of Finnish treasures in the portfolio of Janine Rewell. The adorable Sporks you see above are re-usable and washable, are made from organically grown bamboo, and features some really cute illustrations which make me want to use them even more. Such a great project.
Hello, everyone. Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I’ve battled two sicknesses, worked long hours, and started a new side-project, all in the last 3 weeks or so. I’ll try not to be a stranger.
Last night I wasn’t feeling so hot, so I killed a bunch of time playing this sweet game called 6 Diffirences. It’s like that thing you’d see in Highlights, except it’s like the updated, gritty, urban version. Okay, it really didn’t take me that long, but it’s fun nonetheless with Banksy and Obey Giant references, as well as photos that look like something Todd Hido would shoot.
Really, really beautiful videos by Volkan Ergen of Istanbul. I love the way he saturates and adds so much contrasts to these. The sound is also pretty stellar as well, so be sure to watch these with headphones in. To see more of his video work on Vimeo, click here.
I’ve spent the last half hour listening to this Department of Eagles performance from KCRW. They sound amazing live, er, on the interentz, but yeah, I wish I had tickets to see them tomorrow night. The silly little player above isn’t the handiest of ways to listen to this, but if you need to kill some time with some great music, this is a sure bet.
Also, they play two new songs which is fun alone, and they also talk about how Grizzly Bear is a fancy bitch, and Department of Eagles is a less classy ho. I might be paraphrasing that a bit, you’ll have to listen to find out.
Good Thursday everyone! Sorry for the delay in the wallpaper, yesterday was hectic. But today is a wet and rainy day, perfect for the wallpaper that’s being released today! The wallpaper was made by the wonderful Gemma Correll, who draws just about the cutest little critters out there. The wallpaper was inspired by Gemma’s hatred for winter which tried to channel into something positive. In her own words, “I don’t really love winter, in fact I hate it – but I was kind of working on the concept of reverse psychology!”
I totally agree. I hope you all enjoy the wallpaper, and be sure to check out Gemma’s site if you’re not familiar with her work. Thanks again, Gemma!
