Love this print by Portland, Oregon based duo Jolby (Josh Kenyon & Colby Nichols).  I’m feeling a pull towards the sea today…

Unfortunately the first print is sold out from their etsy shop, but they have plenty of other beauties to oogle at.  (like the above ‘Traditions’)

Also check out grain edit‘s post on their handiwork here.

And if you haven’t had enough of the sea, have a peak at my all time favorite sea illustration here.

This is one sexy abode.  And I think it’s a perfect post with which to kick off my new category entitled, “Gimme”.  This heading will go before things/places that I reeeeally want (like, a lot):  to have, live in, taste, pet, horde, or experience.  Things that, upon seeing them, fill me with a strong desire to own ’em.  Very materialistic of me I know (though, note that I included ‘experience’ in my list above.  Sometimes I just want to feel the weight of something in my hand or know what it smells like…) but I became a product designer for a reason;  I love things.  Good things.  Well designed things.  Things that are the representation of smart & thoughtful, well crafted ideas.   And this particular category is for the things that I would want to have and share space with.

Things that I appreciate and admire, but maybe wouldn’t offer up shelf space to, will just get another heading that’s all.  So let’s get back to my morning ‘gimme!’ designed by Maxwan Architects

STUDIO NEWS!:  I just received my beautiful matte copies of UPPERCASE Magazine #6 where on the upper right hand corner of page 9, my Wild Life Camper sits proudly.   Canadian creator/publisher/editor Janine Vangool has put together another juicy collection of talent and inspiration.  I’m so happy to be included in this issue’s wandering wonder.

If you are lucky enough to be in San Francisco this week, stop by The Curiosity Shoppe and meet the team behind the UPPERCASE magic!

Super(S)mart #22

If you’re having trouble finding a smile, can’t remember which drawer you put them in, just watch the video below and it will help you track one down.

This couple walked into the Mayo clinic for their check-ups and worked this bit of smile magic. They’ve been married for 62 years and he’ll be turning 90 this year. AND they’re still smiling… (I especially love how he keeps patting her bum when they switch sides) Thanks for this one Dayna!
