Okay, I promise this is the last thing I’ll post about today that was sent to me! But it’s so awesome that I of course had to share it. Jean Jullien, my friend and one of my favorite artists, teamed up withe Eugéne & Pauline to create this beautiful little silkscreened book called Lyrics. It features 20 pages of illustrations, all silkscreened in 3 colors and limited to only 100 copies in the world. It’s really neat because there’s the cover, and then inside the pages are actually one REALLY long strip of paper that’s accordion folded. The quality of this totally blew my mind, it’s an absolutely beautiful book. I’ve been trying to think of ways to hang it in my apartment!

Three of my favorite things in the world are design, music, and comic books, so when French wünderkind Jean Jullien let me know about his newest project, a culmination of those three things, I knew it was gonna be awesome. The project is for a band called Niwoiunwouin, which I haven’t the faintest idea of how to pronounce, and their newest release called Fall of the Supers.
Jean decided to go all out on this project, crafting full costumes as a part of the packaging for the album. I think they look really rad, like some sort of pop art comic turned real. I’m not 100% sure, but I think the fella you see above is Jean himself, though hopefully I haven’t doomed Jean by revealing his secret identity! As for the album, well, it’s not quite my taste. It’s really abstract and electronic, kind of scattered all over the place, but I did enjoy some of the songs. To give a listen for yourself, click here.

Greetings from Florida! I hope everyone is having as good of a time as I am! By the time you read this I’ll be kayaking through the mangrove trees down in the Keys.
But it’s still Wednesday, so I’m still obligated to hook you guys up with an awesome wallpaper. And like I mentioned last week, this week’s wallpaper is a slight departure from the last few weeks. The wallpaper above was created by the extremely talented Jean Jullien, a London based artist and designer. I posted about Jean early this year after seeing the amazing ongoing visual diary he keeps.
Something about the way Jean creates reminds me a lot of Michel Gondry, like he just creates all the things pop into his head. Looking through his site I fell in love with all of the amazing papercraft things he came up with, so I asked him to use that skill to create an awesome wallpaper. I totally love what he came up with, totally effective and beautiful and works really well as a desktop wallpaper. I also really like that it’s handmade, getting away from computers for a little bit.
On a sidenote, I asked some French friends about why the words shooting of the gun says “PAN!” instead of “BANG!”? Turns out it’s the cultural difference. In France they say PAN! instead of BANG! to make the sound of a gun, much like dogs say something other than BARK! in other countries. I always love learning little things like that.
I hope you all enjoy the wallpaper and check back next week for another awesome wallpaper.
