New York sculptor Randall Rosenthal creates amazing pieces carved out of single blocks of wood.

His work reminds me of ceramacist Richard Shaw.

All baby time in February. Took Duke to his first concert (Yo La Tengo) and his second concert (Ted Leo). A good dad wastes no time in giving his kid street cred.

Had a HORRIBLE bout with kidney stones. That was the low. The high was the birth of our son, Duke on Thanksgiving. Amazing.

Better late than never, right? Been busy. Anyway, October was the the month of preparing for our son to be born. Not much else happened really. If it did, I can’t remember.

Great Gatsby Business Card Poster

10 Mar 2011, 11:37am

Another winner! What happens when you take the characters from chapter four of the Great Gatsby and decide to make business cards for them? If you are The Heads of State you have a dynamite poster on your hands. 32 different cards pulling from the design styles of the 20′s all on one sheet. This is also a great project for design teachers to give to their students. What a fantastic idea and executed beautifully. This was also printed by those geniuses over at Studio On Fire.

This bad boy is for sale too. $90 bucks. Hey man, quality cost. Do it!

Typography Deconstructed Poster

10 Mar 2011, 11:12am

A beautiful poster from the people over at Typography Deconstructed. The poster covers the Anatomy of Type and also has a Type Glossary. The poster is a high-quality 16 X 24 letterpress print produced by the print masters over at Studio On Fire. The detail on this poster is top notch:

The good news is that this beaut is for sale. The bad news is that it comes with a $100 price tag making it out of reach for casual buyers. (Promo code SOFMARCH2011 gets you $10 off throughout the month of March 2011, though.) If this were last year I would have bought it already and turned it into a tax write off for “business expenses” as this poster  is top shelf. But life is hectic now and purchases are on hold. However, gifts are graciously accepted.
