on-the-go games

I picked these up a number of years ago on Canal Street—the boxes are quite small, they fit in your back pocket.. I love everything about them… the unintential off-registered printing, color combos, superthin paper stock and illustrations are just perfect-O.

Ls and Qs hurray!

I was on a road-trip, but I can't recall the location of this fine place... somewhere in wisconsin or michigan... I think it was near water... maybe it was out east. regardless, the typography (amazingly dangly descender) and architecture is quite inviting, eh?

does anyone know the location?

Do you know who has an immaculate collection?

welcome back to school!

we've started back up at minneapolis college of art and design after a fairly restful holday break. I'm super excited about the classes that I'm teaching: graphic design one and two and typography one. Some handwork will transpire this semester...

summer jimmy with sword

I just found these photos of Jimmycat—nestled between screen and sword—enjoying a nice breezy summer day. Oh, I miss my summer bedroom (I love dazing at the dreamy old silkscreened wallpaper). We're fully ready for warm weather so we can move back upstairs to the unheated attic.

a murder of crows

There were hundreds outside of mcad the other evening—perched on trees, flying overhead and making a serious ruckus.
