a familiar orange octopus

February 13, 2011

when i saw this illustration by amber alexander, i recognized the octopus immediately!  you can’t tell me that it’s not the same one i had the pleasure of meeting at the oregon aquarium back in september.
it simply must be the same one.
no question about it.


check out more work by amber alexander.

a little fun on the side

September 17, 2010

as some of you know i’ve been working on some side projects of my own since i’ve been home, mostly to do with textiles.

well, i’ve also been working on some side to those side projects…  really just playing around until i’m inspired to do something else.

both turned out to be a little fanciful and playful.

2. confetti shirt (front/back)

April 9, 2010

when was the last time you played with spinning tops?  you probably wouldn’t be able to help yourself if they were as pretty as these from pucciManuli.

…but perhaps building miniature models is more your thing, in which case you can find beautiful ones like this streamlined steam locomotive.
