Today I'm posting something super special. It's special for 3 reasons... 1. The artwork was created by Aaron Bartlett, 2. I love minimalist posters, and 3. They're super heros. Who doesn't like super heros? And if you are wondering if Aaron is related to us, well, he is. Aaron is Jake's oldest brother.
I picked out 3 of my favorite characters he featured. I love the simplicity, texture, and geometricness of it all. See for yourself. They're pretty great!

Photojojoalways has fun camera accessories. They now have these super cool cutouts you can attach to your camera's lens and create some beautiful effects with ordinary light. Jake and I experimented with this idea over Christmas. We didn't have this kit so we just cut out our own snowflake shape from construction paper. It was a lot of fun for a cold winter afternoon.
Have you seen Danielle Kroll's What I Wore series on her blog? I've been a fan of her work for awhile. I love her fun illustrative style and beautiful use of color. Can I borrow that yellow sweater please?
|Art Print from Julia|
Yesterday morning I took one of Altitude Design Summit's online classes. It was taught by one of my favorite bloggers, Melanie from You Are My Fave. There were around 90 other bloggers taking the class too! It was a lot of fun to connect with them and hear some great blogging advice from Melanie.I love the quote on that poster from Julia. Let's be honest, we all want to be successful at what we do. I think if you love what you do and you work hard at it then you are a success already. I hope it encourages you as much as it did me.
Happy Valentine's day everyone! I'm pretty excited about today. I love having a day dedicated to showing people just how much you love them. Plus it's probably the only day all year when you can go heart crazy and none cares: heart cards, heart shaped food, hearts, hearts, hearts!
I came across this cute video this morning over on Moglea's blog. The 5-year-old daughter of a graphic designer offers her insight on corporate logos. I'd say she is off to a good start with her design future.
Jamie and I were fortunate enough to get a clear view of Sir Paul McCartney receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday afternoon! There were hundreds of people there, and we were a good 75 feet away from the podium. Luckily, Jamie was able to see through the crowd, and I had long enough arms to get my camera above everyone else's. It was so much fun getting to see and hear him in person! Neil Young was also there to talk a bit before Paul did. What a cool experience.
|The Beatles: Paris, 1964|
When it comes to The Beatles, sometimes I feel like I missed out on a huge part of history. They're the biggest (and best) band of all time! I still enjoy their music today, but just how much more amazing would it have been to see them live or even just experience their music for the first time along with the rest of the world.
I just came across these giclee print letters this morning from Methane Studios. They have designed each letter of the alphabet so you could buy one or a whole bunch and spell out anything you can think of. Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner I decided to spell love. The O is my favorite.
