I forgot to mention it, but on Wednesday I was featured on Etsy’s blog as their guest curator, picking out items from the Etsy-verse that I enjoyed. I tried to find a large variety of things, from home items to wearables, and I think I did a pretty good job. It’s crazy how much stuff there is on Etsy! It’s like a swap meet times a million. If you happen to be an Etsy junkie and want to see my picks then click here.
Not to be outdone by her beau, here is the work of Genevieve Simms, the partner of Josh Holinaty who was featured in the previous post. It’s always fun to find couples who are both creative types. Genevieve studied at SVA in New York and it shows, she’s quite a gifted painter. I love all the colors she uses in her pieces, and how a lot of them are of a darker nature. The Lizzy Borden piece above, with the descriptive wallpaper, is so amazing, look how crazy her eyes are!
Check out the amazing illustration skills of Josh Holinaty, a resident of Edmonton, Alberta. He’s got a really great line style, lots of bits everywhere giving everything a lot of detail. The two images above were yanked from his covers section, and they’re a bit more straightforward than the rest of his work, but are probably my favorite. I love the color palette of the Edgar Allan Poe piece, and all of those mutant faces are too good not to post.
The amazing architecture firm Wonderwall updates their website with the help of Yugo Nakamura. They’ve definitely taken Flash and bent it to their will, creating a really organic web experience, a phrase I’ve never uttered and my never again. It’s absolutely a blast to play with, and super easy to use. You simply click a square, which opens into a large, colorful square, and then a big arrow points you in the direction to go. Such a great use of Flash and probably one of the funnest sites I’ve seen all year.
I usually have no reason to stop into the 7-Eleven down the street from my house, but soon, this will all be changing. The kitten eating monster Domo will be invading 7-Eleven stores across the country, gracing the fronts of slurpee bottles, cofee cups, and even eating up hot dogs.
I think this is such a clever and silly idea, but there’s something about it that’s really charming. Domo is such a cute character and seeing him in coffee cup form makes me want to go down there every morning to greet him. And I love the Spice Pumpkin Latte image (which is under the cut) and how he’s holding a pumpkin. Be sure to check out more images under the cut.
