I can hardly believe these are line drawings, they’re so detailed and patterned! They are the work of Japanese artist Kosuke Ikeda, who uses gel ink ball point pens to create these unique pieces. He has many other visually interesting works on his site as well, worth checking out!

Running the Numbers is an interesting set of photos by photographer Chris Jordan, in which each picture has a specific quantity of a mass-consumed item. For example, one photo features fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of average paper use), and another shows 106,000 aluminum cans (about thirty seconds of can consumption). As you might imagine, in real life some of these pictures are huge, like 10 feet by 25 feet! Below are a couple of shots from the set; see more here, they’re amazing!

I adore these prints by Joseph over at Biscuitlove! Our Web Marketing Manager, Heather, bought the top print the other day and hasn’t stopped talking about it! I can’t blame her, they’re all so cool!

I am really into Jason Fiske lately – I love the surreal nature of his work and the variety within it. When I look at his art I feel like I’m traveling! See lots more here!

Photographer Kevin Bauman has taken pictures of 100 different abandoned houses and posted them here on the net! I love old abandoned areas, houses and such – they are so interesting and there is something about them that just makes you want to look! See them all here.

paper heart press

I can’t get over the cute customizable kid’s party invitations that Paper Heart Press makes!

I won’t be turning 1 any time again, but I am tempted to get some of these for my next party, even though they’re supposed to be for kids! Too cute & clever! See more here.

I am obsessed by Cindy Riccardelli‘s jewelry right now! I love the huge masses of beads and how textured and chunky her work is. As much chunky jewelry is out there these days, I haven’t seen any quite like these – they really make a statement! I love the colors too, especially the first one! Cindy also paints and makes dolls- you can see all of her work, including a lot more jewelry, here on her site!

OMG. Can you tell Oanh hello for me? I went to CSULB with her (studying fashion design!) I am the VM at the Anthropologie in Newport Beach CA. I had no idea she worked for the company! What a small world!

yeah, ryanne's dress is amazing. whoever gave her that must be really incredible.

barcode revolution

Barcode Revolution creates these specialized barcodes for a number of major Japanese brands. I love them! I have often wondered why we don’t do something creative with barcodes – I hope this idea makes it to the US!
Also, don’t you think one of these would look cool as the graphic on a tee-shirt? Maybe the castle one…

actually, i've seen target do this on a hangtag for their reusable bag program. they have trees "growing" out of the bar code. cleverness for sure.

painted castle

This is Kelburn Castle in Scotland, which in June 2007 was partially painted by the Sao Paolo Crew, who are Brazilian graffiti artists. It looks so cool! I love to see a castle that is over 500 years old covered in some modern graffiti art! And it’s so detailed! What do you guys think?

I spy Os Gemeos at work-- I love the yellow faces they paint. I like this idea but the particular artwork is too cartoony and random for me. Big old castles kind of creep me out-- all the elite intimidation and ostentatious wealth. The street art decor warms my heart. It's like an upgrade against classism.
Lindsay -Mar 10, 2009, 10:58PM
whoa. unreal.
