The Complete Versace x H&M Lookbook
"The collection for H&M is the essence of Versace. For the collaboration we've brought back from the archives, as well as from more recent collections, some of the icons of Versace, such as the bright prints, the Greek key and daring cuts. I can't wait to see how H&M's wide audience will make these pieces their own," says Donatella Versace

Nathalie Miebach: Art made of storms | Video on

Nathalie Miebach: Art made of storms | Video on

Artist Nathalie Miebach takes weather data from massive storms and turns it into complex sculptures that embody the forces of nature and time. These sculptures then become musical scores for a string quartet to play.

FREE Tattoo from Shine A Light @ the Portland Art Museum!
Last Friday, Jason Sturgill hosted an exhibit as part of the event, called "Art is Forever". Local artists were called upon to create illustrations based on their favorite pieces in the museum to be turned into tattoos for the visitors of "Shine A Light" to have the opportunity to choose from. I had to show up before the museum even opened to get on the list. But I made it! And thanks to Cheyenne Sawyer (Atlas Tattoo-Portland, OR) here is the result...

Based on the painting "Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder" by Robert Colescott

These need to exist.

Ever hear of Lady Fair Cigarettes?

The ones that burn down real fast?

Twice the taste in half the time for the girl on the go. I invented the quick burning paper.


So, I've been on a documentary kick lately... I recently revisited "Helvetica" and I must say, it was even better than I had remembered; though one does not have to be a complete and utter typomaniac to enjoy this film. Honestly, if you have never even thought about typography once in your life and how it affects the way you perceive just about everything around you, then you are about to get your dome blown into a bazillion little pieces and then put back together again... Oh, and the surgeons report will be typed in Helvetica.

Erik Spiekermann: Extra Interview

This guy is by far my favorite. Anyone who compares a typeface to Nazi's always wins. Here's a wee bit that didn't make it in to the documentary.
