Artist: Kevin Kearns

As a designer, I always appreciate the courage of leaving behind the world of clients and deadlines to embrace art; as with the case of Kevin Kearns.

Kearns paints abstract landscapes that from a distance take on a nearly photographic appearance. The contrasting colors, deep textures and looseness of technique create an intensely emotional image. For me, the scenes feel very internal, as if “remembering” a place rather than a true to life landscape. Love this stuff.

Matthew Divito Animated Gifs

I think these animated gifs of geometric abstractions from Matthew Divito speak for themselves. Hauntingly beautiful.

For All Rings!

The brilliant people at Zeus Jones were kind enough to send me some of their elegant “For All” rings. (Along with some amazing prints I’ll be posting later.) My wife and I will be proudly wearing them, indefinitely! Be sure to visit their website, grab some rings and show your support via the link below:

The underwater levels have always been bittersweet. They account for the most frustrating in-game moments, but always make up for it with atmosphere and awesome music. Great for rainy days or long baths.

New Pogo Site

Pogo recently updated his website. I had a little hand in the homepage design but most of the design credit goes to the talented Valentin Cervellera!

Check out the new site at pogomix.com.

Print by Javier Garcia

I received this beauty in the post the other day! It was illustrated by my super talented friend Javier Garcia, a San Francisco based designer/illustrator. Javier has an awesome blog called No Barcode that’s all about mid-century modern art & packaging. I suggest you check it out!

Mars Wallpapers

Nasa just released an amazing HD 360 degree panoramic image of the surface of Mars. These photos were taken by the Opportunity Rover and released today.

I took some screen captures to use as desktop backgrounds and thought I’d share. Enjoy!
