Joshua Petker.

June 30th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Joshua Petker’s paintings are so very Queen of the Damned. And although I’m sure no one would consider this a compliment — it was heavily panned by critics and received some Rotten Tomatoes — I do. The movie was highly-erotic, blood filled, and downright sexy (Stuart Townsend in leather pants?). Likewise with Petker’s pieces. His […]

Asos Cassette Tape Watch.

June 27th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Not only does this over-sized chrome watch conjure memories of my father in the 80’s, or of some science teachers I had in grade school, but of hours and hours spent leaning over a tape-to-tape boombox, with a dozen or so of my favorite cassettes splayed out on the floor, jockeying for position on the […]

KRINK meets Ferrari.

June 27th, 2008 · Comments Off on KRINK meets Ferrari.

I’ve long supported KRINK for their extremely high-quality inks and tools, and their consistently envelope-pushing innovation. I’m a loyal customer and I’ve written about the company a couple of times in previous blog posts. Most importantly, I’ve often been impressed with their variety of collaborative projects with other designers,┬ábut I really never expected to see […]

Pregnancy test from Apple.

It’s Friday! Why not add to your excitement by watching this iPod Shuffle short? And then pass it on . . . it’s that funny. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPlqhw8AoQI&hl=en]

Babel by Frederik Mattsson.

June 26th, 2008 · Comments Off on Babel by Frederik Mattsson.

These might not look like much at first, just a beautiful gradation of gray-scale in the shape of a spool of thread. But wait! Look further, they’re tables! And height-adjustable tables at that! Designed by Frederik Mattsson, “the Chick Corea of chairs,” these lovely tables would make a great place to have coffee or dinner […]

Jolis Paons Phonebook dress.

June 26th, 2008 · 11 Comments

I know nothing about Jolis Paons except that she’s fantastically artistic and can make a dress from an old phone book, so I guess, she’s resourceful, too. Her pictures are gorgeous, and her self-portraits make me wish I had stuck with photography beyond my intro class in high school. I hope you enjoy her telephone […]

Baa, Maa, & Paa.

June 26th, 2008 · Comments Off on Baa, Maa, & Paa.

Ok, so I’m not a kid, but sometimes kid-focused products are just more interesting. Take this Envirosax for example, how could you not want it to lug your groceries? That’s what I thought. Baa, Maa, & Paa available at Envirosax.com

Mogil leather goods.

I’d carry one of these lovely clutches in a heartbeat. And conveniently for me, the sherbet colors look nice alongside my summer wardrobe.

The write vegetable — cards.

June 25th, 2008 · Comments Off on The write vegetable — cards.

There hasn’t been a mention of spiffy stationary in quite some time. So, I’m bringing it back, with my new favorite, Saturate design. Now go on, and try to tell me you don’t wanna send grandma a veggie-themed card. You should anyway, she’d be absolutely smitten.
