mad (monster) men

Has Sesame Street always been this on top of popular culture? I was a big fan of the neighborhood back in the day. They are so current lately, spoofing Mad Men,True Blood, and the Old Spice Guy.

Also check out True Mud, and Smell Like a Monster.

San Franciscan artist Paul Fernay recently collaborated with is wife Jordan Fernay on the series Let Them Eat Cake. I'm loving the texture and variety. I would love to own one of these but I think it would just constantly make me crave cake!

See (and buy) the whole series here.

embroidery with a purpose

I've been using embroidery as a medium more and more lately and really love the results. I am always looking for ways to blur the line between my crafty side and my everyday graphic design work and when I happened upon the work of Evelin Kasikov it blew my mind. It is such a modern take on a traditional idea.

Took at her site for more great embroidery-design projects.
