I really dig the type stylings of this chick. And whoa. Big Cartel? I just discovered it through Decor8, and it’s cool too. It’s a lot like Etsy, but smaller. You kind of have to dig to find the stand-outs, but everything I’ve really liked so far is super cheap. Also check out:
Come to Rainbo this Sunday to support Stephanie Bassos and my friend Linsey Burritt (aka Studio Rosse). They’ve orchestrated a show with photography and window installations and brilliant things are expected! Jan 11th, 8:30pm, 1150 N. Damen ave.
Seriously blown away by Chinese illustrator & Artist Tsang Kin-Wah. I can’t believe the intricacy of these, all hand painted, I’m sure in person on such a huge scale they’re even more amazing. Via Graphic Hug.
Until now I’ve been quietly, slowly building and maintaining this site. But today, it’s all ready and official! So in the spirit of this most splendid event, I’m offering desktop wallpaper for your downloading pleasure. Also, see? Over there in the sidebar there’s a Freebies section which I’ll be updating monthly with other wallpapers, dings, doodads and other pretty little whatnots. So, welcome everyone; I hope you’re here to stay. I wish had confetti & champagne for everyone, but logistically that’s a bit tricky isn’t it? Hoorays & many thanks will have to do instead!
So this month’s wallpaper is inspired by a set of handmade vintage napkins sewn by my Grandma, circa 1970 or 80 I think. They were given to me over the holidays by my Aunt who has a vast collection of vintage goodies. The rest of the typography is all hand-done, influenced by the homies of the hand-drawn type. Enjoy!
