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

His work reminds me of ceramacist Richard Shaw.

Fujifilm FinePix x100 Digital Camera

21 Sep 2010, 9:38am

I am speechless. No, not really because I am about to go on. Take a look at the upcoming Fujifilm FinePix x100 digital camera (expected release: early 2011). Wow. Did the designers get this right? Yes. They did. Even down to the screw hole in the trigger button that accepts an old school cable release! Amazing.

My second thought after “WOW!” was that of of disappointment in that it has a fixed 23mm (135 equivalent: 35mm) f2 prime lens meaning that you can’t zoom or change the lens. I am over that disappointment remembering that sometimes the limitations of some things is what makes them great. Everything else that they thought of will make up for that (and the lens sounds super anyway). Like a large CMOS sensor. Solid metal top controls. A hybrid viewfinder and a small built-in flash as well as a full TTL hot shoe. Fuji GETS IT.

I just bought a new Olympus Pen E-P2 and I really like it despite it is missing a couple of features that I am baffled that they left off (built-in flash and built-in viewfinder). I do love that I can use my Voigtlander lenses on it though. HOWEVER, if the fine people at Fuji would like me to be a tester for what I think could be the camera to watch in 2011, hey, it is the least I could do. SEND ME ONE! Pretty please? Seriously, anyone know anyone at Fuji? Anyone?

*tap tap* This thing on…?

With so much done on computers these days, it sure is lovely to see someone so masterful at doing something by hand.

Alien Vs. Predator Skate Deck

This is a skate deck really tickles me.

Wait, that didn’t sound right.

This is a skate deck I can really get behind.

No, that’s not right either.

Never mind.

(Thanks, Andy!)

Not sure where I pulled this from. Found it on my desktop. Probably a t-shirt design. Anyway, who wouldn’t want a Robot striking the pose of that oh so iconic album?

Pig 05049

Pig 05049

This is a pretty neat project by Christien Meindertsma. She spent three years researching all the products made from a single pig. Pig 05049 to be exact. Some of those products include ammunition, medicine, photo paper, heart valves, brakes, chewing gum, porcelain, cosmetics, cigarettes, conditioner and even bio diesel. The results were put into book form with pictures of all of the items from that single pig shown at 1:1 scale. Pretty freakin’ cool.

You can buy it here.

This project also won an INDEX award.

Lorax Print by Mt. Pleasant Press

The Lorax Letterpress

Will someone else please go buy this awesome print from Mt. Pleasant Press based on the Dr Seuss book The Lorax . I am not buying this even though I want to and it is a great deal at $30 considering there were only 20 made. Just too many other posters to frame at home and I am trying to save some money.
