Ideal project

laurenkelp2

I’ve been doing some fun logos lately, most of which involve hand lettering. Will be posting more projects as I wrap them up.

This is for my friend Lauren. She’s always up to something! I’ll share the bigger scope when it’s ready.

I’d like to do more work like this, so if you know anyone who’s got a hankering for some watercolor/lettering/etc., please connect us!

Fridyay Reads: DE BONO’S THINKING COURSE

proof-in-imaginationCurrently reading De Bono’s Thinking Course.

In his chapter on alternatives, De Bono writes, “Often, we are convinced of a hypothesis or explanation simply because we can’t imagine an alternative explanation.”

I’m also really enjoying the chapter on decision-making. More to come, folks. There’s some good stuff in here.

*Where did I find it? Saw it on Stefen Sagmeister’s reading list. No questions asked.

Can’t stop won’t stop

 

Amen. Image via here.

yup

Aaron Eiland knows what’s good.

a community of goodness

Mondays mean fresh podcasts and lady TV night.

Inspiration + exposition is contagious. Last night I had some fruitful chats with some very talented folks.  I’m feeling so inspired that I’m going to White Fang myself off of this blog and head back to work.

p.s. please forgive some of the jacked up alignments. I was messing with the CSS this weekend and didn’t have time to finish. Will fix later!

mini “proud in a year” woodburn now available

A brilliant Etsy shopper asked me if I could make this burn smaller so it could fit in a specific space for her. What a grand idea! A mini version of the most popular burn is now available for $40. Come get it here.

Aren’t these nice?

There isn’t much information about these placement coasters by Atentadado Digital other than that they are called, “placement coasters”. They sure are pretty though.

Mantra turned doodle turned back into mantra

I did this little sketch in the airport on my way to Asheville over Thanksgiving. The kid sitting next to me (I think his name was Elijah) said that he could “never draw like that.” He told me he was 12. I asked him if his five-year-old self would have believed he could draw like he is now, seven years later. He said, “Probably not.” I suggested that since I am twice his age — a lifetime ahead of him — I just may have more practice. He said he is going to start drawing again.

I wonder how many times I too have assumed checkmate. All for no reason!

Let us take baby steps, receive grace and expect victory.

Anna Wolf + Mike Perry…sigh

This post is dedicated to you, Katie Pinson. I said I would send you a link, and blogging about it is straight up multitasking.

Photographer Anna Wolf and designer Mike Perry have always made a good team. Her photos + his type and art direction are a match made in Adobe Heaven. They are much like cottage cheese and wheat thins — wonderful on their own but dynamic when together. Both sites are funhouses and make me drool 40 out of 10 times.

I ♥ Ira Glass

Yeah yeah Christmas is over. That was SO 2011. The good news is that the “see ya next year” jokes are over. The bad news is that the Mayans must be pretty disappointed. The other good news is that Ira Glass (This American Life) is the man. He made the above comment in the 1997 Christmas episode…I’m a bit of a fan. So profound. You’re welcome (says Ira).
