These posters from Keep Calm Gallery are simple but great uses of typography.

I really really really want the Tutti Frutti print, but sadly I neither have the money or the wall space.

I really enjoy the HI postcard as well. I must have noticed H - I in the alphabet is HI, but I forgot until I saw this card.

L.A. Candy

Have you guys read the excerpt from Lauren Conrad's book on Teen Vogue. Absolute brilliance. She says it is fiction, but pulls inspiration from her life. Ha, yah. Um, Braden=Brody.

Stefanie Augustine

This blog has been a little illustration heavy since my return, but how can I resist with all these wonderful illustrations.

I am really enjoying the work of Stefanie Augustine, especially this portrait of Lincoln

Goodbye Wafflemaker

I moved last week (once the apartment is in order I will post pictures) and I am finding this site, Goodbye Wafflemaker, very inspiring. The creator of the site is moving and selling everything she owns so she can be immersed in her new community.

My brother has spent the last year essentially living out of a suitcase, which is a very freeing way to live. I on the other hand have been a pack rat my entire life, which would make that a very difficult way for me to live. I am not being forced to do that, but new place is quite a bit smaller so I have been purging like nobodies business.

I kind of want to sell everything I know, but then I think about losing my beautiful books and clothes and I get really sad. It is a nice idea though.

The warm and fuzzies

There are some clips from movies that when I watch them I immediately feel good inside.

I hope these clips do the same for you.

All Zooey, all the time

Remember a while back when I said I could write a whole blog about Zooey? Well someone has created a whole tumblr of Zooey.

You know that question, "What celebrity would you be?" I think I would choose Zooey.

Red Beard Press

I visited a master printer this spring and she was showing us work she has collected over the years. My favorite piece she showed us was from an illustrator she called Red Beard. She purchased it from his senior show, and I would have done the same, it is amazing.

It is a two layer piece, the first layer is on waxed paper which makes the paper translucent. The second is on a piece of opaque paper. I fell in love, and it made want to stretch my illustration muscles.

I wish you guys could see this piece in person, but definitely go take a look at the rest of Red Beard Press.

This story amused me.

Black Cat

My roommate desperately wants a black cat named Nora. Cats and I have a hate-hate relationship, and thankfully our building does not allow pets so this debate has ended between us.

On Found (with one F) I saw this posting for a missing cat. I think this is the best designed missing pet poster I have ever seen. The perfect amount of information, perfectly displayed.
