things piling up + a couple days away

Stacks

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've been away from this blog...but I'm going to take a couple days off to re-group. A brutal tax season + my current workload + the upcoming stationery show + the vacation that never happened (because of tax season) has me feeling a little beat up. I'll be away from the blog for the next couple days while I get the rest of my work and life in order. But I promise to be right back here on Monday!

gastrotypographicalassemblage

Loudorfsman

I first saw a photo of mid-century designer Lou Dorfman's "gastrotypographicalassemblage" wall in an issue of I.D. magazine last year and was absolutely blown away. The creative vision of the legendary CBS art director and designer is the largest, modern typographic artifact in existence and has been in storage since it was taken down in the '90's.

happy friday + bathing in sea of cupcakes...

Whiskiebitscupcakes_2

Three words...OH-MY-GOODNESS. I could live, breathe, and sleep in a sea of mini cupcakes from Whiskie Bits in Oakland, California. I've never had them, but the photo makes me want to dive in head first. I seriously may have to move to Northern California for these cupcakes...or at least set up a cot right outside...yum. Have a great weekend everyone!

sweet site

Jengotch

I'm jumping on the Jen Gotch bandwagon for a bit as I had to share her new simple and sweet site of photography work. Her sense of color and composition are just gorgeous...
