new veneers and blocks by michele bosak

you might remember i am a big fan of michele bosak. i really like these new pieces from her, keeping within her softly dreamy, vintage-styled theme. the blocks are made of solid wood and the veneer pieces of oak. each image is a xerox transferred by hand.


see more at michele’s website and purchase these pieces at her etsy shop. if you are in the grand rapids area, you can check out some of her original work in person at noir (who doesn’t have a website up) right now, and coming up in seattle at the suite 100 gallery starting february 13th, 2009.

rock paper scissors = doodlage by rashell

lots of pretty little details on this rock paper scissors series of collectible objects and embellished prints from rashell aka etsy seller doodlage. rahsell calls it the rock paper scissors collection because she started out doodling on rocks to create keepsakes, then decided to create prints from other original drawings and them layers the prints with handcoloring, assorted media and delicate japanese papers (hence the scissors).

2009 bubble calendar (fun)

do you have an ocd when it comes to bubble wrap? did you ever go to a birthday party when you were a kid and popping bubble wrap was one of the games, and you found it to be so much fun you tried to do it every chance you could, even when there was no party? ever saved shipping materials knowing full well you don’t need them, just so you could hear those delicious popping sounds?

um, that wasn’t me. i’m talking about a friend of mine.

anyway, here’s something my friend might like for next year, a very cool poster sized calendar with a bubble to pop every day! the popping is for kids but the clean graphic styling is quite adult if you ask me.


oh dear, i think i might smell a diy coming on…

find it for $29.99 at perpetual kid.

clare stoker macro photography

noa bembibre 2009 calendar

Hurrah, hurray and hurry — Noa’s back!

Many may duplicate, but I accept no imitations of the clever typographical style of Helsinki-based graphic designer Noa Bembibre. I think these calendars are truly special and if you do too then you might want to preorder now. Shipping of the 500 limited edition pieces begins on November 5th, 2008.



Big fan here.

Purchase the €32 calendar (about US $25 and an awesome holiday gift for your most visual/designy friends), and see more of Noa’s work on her website. You can also buy the calendar online at the Curiosity Shoppe,  Present and Correct, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum shop and MOCA LA.
