art affair


william powhida sure knows a thing or two when it comes to explaining things, like why we should buy art. totally digging this print, and at only $50, i have a feeling we'll all be buying a little piece of art shortly. order yours here.

the games we play


james deavin takes some extraordinary photos of rather ordinary things. while his portfolio encompasses a rather large range of subject matter, i'm most taken by his series titled "the games we play." see the whole collection here.

into the fold


i first wrote about david foldvari about a year ago, and am still as smitten with his work today as i was back then. his portfolio is spectacular - take a look for yourself.

app.itize


naturally someone took the time and effort to sort through ALL those apps for the iphone and let us know which are the best and most beautiful. use caution - you can get sucked into app.itize for what feels like an eternity, and those .99 cent apps can add up quick! learn more here.

dry erase

the state of the internet

i love information that's presented in a way that makes it absolutely delicious. on a recent fact hunt for work, i came across this animation by jesse thomas based on stats from aiga baltimore. aside from having some pretty interesting data about the internet, it's a visual delight.

top rope

being a fairly big fan of climbing, it's no surprise that i'm pretty much in love with this couch made out of climbing rope. designed by oscar andersson for the Beckmans College of Design / Stockholm Furniture Fair 2010, this is a serious must have for any climbers out there. climb on!
