RAD!

il_fullxfull.83472851

We have another new card in our Etsy shop. We’re pretty psyched about this card and had a lot of fun experimenting with the Gocco process inks. We think that the combination of process colors and xerox-y reticulation make this card perfect for the design geek, 80s punk, zinester, electroclasher or grandmother in your life.

Etsy Schmetsy: Loads of Totes

Whether you are carrying around a sketchbook and tools or you’re headed off to the flea market or grocery store, a tote is totally the accessory you need. It has become a vehicle for self-expression, more fashionable and functional than a tee shirt.

Etsy Schmetsy: Grayellow

It came up on The Fashion Show the other week (admittedly on Merlin’s dress which got him kicked off): grey with yellow. I’ve been looking for it and thinking about it as a color combination a lot recently and it may be my new favorite. So effin beautiful together.

show posters

Three of the four experts are going to see the Decemberists play tonight at the newly-restored and reopened, historic Fox Theater in Oakland. Since I’m a big fan of silkscreen, gig posters and the Decemberists, here is a collection of some of their beautiful show posters.

Etsy Schmetsy: feeling felty

I am fantastically fond of felt. Needle felting, pressed-fiber felt, felt in all forms. It’s fuzzy and comforting, yet substantial and strong. Here are a few fabulous felty finds from Etsy.
