First of all, how amazing is that name?!
Wool and the Gang is a group of knitters selling Crazy Sexy Wool from Peru and making clothing and accessories. They were just in New York during fashion week for an opening on Bond Street that attracted attention from lots of the celebrities in town for the shows like Erin Wasson, Mary Kate, and Peaches Geldof (You can see the party photos on their blog.)
There is much exploring to be done on their website for knitting projects, accessories, wool, and inspiration!

Check out this work by 10 year old graffiti artist Solveig. I love it!

That fresh tat is also by Solveig! Some guy had seen a lot of her work around and really liked it, so he requested a tattoo! I’m so impressed! There’s a little picture article about her on Telegraph UK, and it has a little bit more information about her in the blurbs. I couldn’t figure out where she’s from, though I’m sure it’s in there somewhere. Whatever, she’s awesome! Make sure to have a look at Solveig’s Flickr too, she has a ton of terrific pictures!

I’m excited for this film Tokyo! based on the questions, “Do we shape cities, or do cities shape us?”
It helps that Michel Gondry is involved (director of Science of Sleep and Eternal Sunshine) and that the trailer looks so intriguing!

fpgirl -Feb 26, 2009, 12:38PM
oh no! you've ruined my excitement. has anyone else seen it already??
Shay -Feb 26, 2009, 1:21AM
I saw it at a film fest, and it was a big disappointment. Gondry's portion is mediocre...

Check out the latest episode of DogTALK! Join Kevin as he interviews the totally cute Porter on an extremely cold day! Enjoy!

I especially like Porter's story in his voice, then seeing him play at the end of video. What a dear!

I love Porter, he's the coolest. Food food food! Cow cow cow!

cool heart

So I recently bought a copy of Kris’ latest zine, Cool Heart, and I love it so much! I seriously look at it like 10 times a day. And I’ve had it more than a week now! It’s so good, and really cute, I recommend it to anyone! Below, find a couple of pictures cut out from the zine. If you are a fan of Kris’ work you should definitely check out her site, she has lots for the eyes there! And if you want a copy of Cool Heart, get one here!

German artist Pierre Kracht created these objects out of thread, and yes, they are hollow inside! Pretty cool huh? I really like how they look, especially the chandelier. See more here.

These gorgeous pictures are from the Collectanea Botanica, a series of monographs by John Lindley issued between 1821 and 1826. I love things like this! I saw them on BibliOdyssey, which is becoming one of my favorite sites to visit lately. The guy who works on it finds pictures from all kinds of old books, ones that have been posted online and ones out in the library, and then posts all the best pictures from them.

These paintings by Amy Bennett really intrigue me, because they look to me like miniature models, not oil paintings! There are a few little places on each piece where I can clearly see it’s paint, but for the most part it really tricks my eye! Don’t they look like little figurines to you?

lol. i totally though these were little models at first! It's amazing how artists can use different perspectives and dimensions to create a totally astonishing work of art. I still don't believe it-it looks too real!!

mona lisa chair

How do you guys like this Mona Lisa folding chair? You could put it on your wall, or sit on it! I really like it, weird as it is, it catches my eye. The frame is so cool! Created by Korean designer Kwang Hoo Lee, you can read more about it here on CubeMe.

Love it! It is so funky and original!

This little gadget, which looks rather like a butter knife, is actually a portable toaster! Apparently you just “glide” the toaster over your slice of bread, and the bread gets toasted! And if you couldn’t tell just by looking at your bread, the cute little graphic on the toaster changes as you toast your bread to let you know how far along your toast is. Sheesh! It looks cute, but it also looks like it has the potential to be more trouble than it’s worth. What do you guys think?

where is the wire i wonder... up his sleeve i should think! its *darn pretty* but it would use it just once before putting it in the cupboard with the blenders and other new fangled technology!
Lucy -Feb 23, 2009, 7:20PM
Wow, talk about being innovative! I think this is an absolutely incredible idea that makes toasts accessible and convenient to make! But there should be a big warning sign that says "keep at least 10 meters away from any children'! I mean, this has the potential to hurt a lot of delicate fingers!
