My home away from home

Sorry for not posting in a while, I’ve had quite a busy April.
1 | I took a trip to Oakland with my hubby to visit our once humble home and still very dear friends
2 | Family parties like whoa
3 | Freelance projects like whoa

But I’m back with lots to share! Maybe even too much? – nah…

Rogue Wave

A favorite past time of mine is searching for new bands. And music festival line-ups are no doubt the prime scene for sampling. I found these guys Rogue Wave on the Lollapalooza line-up. At first I thought they were from the midwest with songs like “Lake Michigan” and “Chicago x 12” but it turns out they are from Oakland, CA – nice. They’ve been around since 2004, and just released their latest album, Permalight, this past March.

This photo series makes me smile, what more could a food-obsessed designer ask for?  They even used iconic food for each country the photo represents. As they say, “Half the taste is how it looks” or maybe that’s smells…

These super-geometrical animal illustrations are by Leandro Castelo.  Although they are all sweet, the bird at the top is my favorite. I could see one day designing a baby’s room around that piece. Check out Castelo’s shop too. You can purchase this (7.5″x5″) print for $20…

Fifty People One Question

What a thoughtful series of documentaries. The project Fifty People One Question is an exploration of “human connection through people and place.” For example one question is, “where would you like to wake up tomorrow morning?” Some had extravagant answers and other wished to wake up in the same comforting place as always. The music and editing are striking, and really pull you into sincerity of the interviewees.

Hotel Basico

This mod hotel is located in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. According to Tablet Hotels, Basico has “…floors made from recycled tires and twin rooftop pools made from converted oil tanks.”  The simple lines of the architecture and the various white textures in the rooms let the nature do the decorating. Love it, and I dig the up-cycling.

Nikki Graziano Photographer and Mathematician

Nikki Graziano is a photographer and mathematician on the east coast. Graziano works both sides of her brain with a sweet fusion of math and art. In a way, she adds to the theory that math is everywhere, whether we see it or not. I would love to see a series like this with the golden spiral.
