Being a proud Pisces, I had my eye on this mermaid screen print by roddy&ginger (love their stuff!) for a while… isn’t she lovely? Love the colors, too. (and it’s on sale now!)

Be Happy and Free Holiday Ornament Card

At Kings County Holiday market yesterday, I met lovely Elana from Mélangerie — they have great products like Scratch and Sniff Holiday cards and To Have and To Hold tote bag (and much more!) but I especially love their Be Happy and Free Holiday Ornament Card! Great idea and great typography, and with that little hearts, I was sold.

and it is on my tree today!  May all beings everywhere be happy and free! We could hang this by our door for everyone to see, too… or you could send as holiday cards.

(I took this image :))

Thank you, Elana, it was very nice meeting you! Hijiri

Levi’s Workshops

I didn’t know where to start since I was all over the world for the last 3-4 weeks or so… but I’ll start with the timely things so you can still check it out!

I visited Levi’s Workshops while I was in San Francisco — a community print shop! During July and August, they will be teaching classes on classic letterpress machinery, screenprinting designs, setting type etc. How awesome is this?! I was so excited to see the whole place really active and everyone just creating and printing.

Vandercook press in action.

“Keep Calm and Press On” — I would love to have this!

A couple table-top presses.

Stamps! There were so many cool ones, I played around a bit, too ;)

You can also make photocopies and make art here. Love the wall full of work.

and of course, the screen printing area. It was pretty busy looking so I couldn’t take pictures of the machine, but it was pretty big.

Walls with printed work. Love this “I’m Just Sayin'” series, so fun :)

and more posters on the wall.

If you are in San Francisco and if you haven’t already, please go check it out, just feeling the creative vibe is worth the visit!

The Brain

Hello! I am back from my trip to Washington D.C. — it was such a fun trip, it was so fun that it is so very hard today to even get up… but I do have a lot to do and so when I saw this new poster from Ork PosterThe Brain,” I immediately got drawn to it — I need the brain right now!

I’ve been a fan of Ork Poster, I have 3 of their city neighborhood posters, their typography design with the city and now with the anatomy series is always so great.



The Brain posters available here.
