"No Fits Nilson" reminding me that I should draw shadows.
And Polly’s feet cause she wanted in on this.

She’s my absolute favorite.
I’ve only seen a few of the fabric pieces in person. One at Art Chicago back in 2001 it was in a dark corner on dingy Navy Pier carpet but it still glowed.
I wish I could see this show. Weird that I’m only seeing snippets on my phone.

Roofing tiles make scallop shapes. Today I learned that back in the day these were made by hand using human thighs as a mold.

Flight 2/3

Had to mad rush through the Amsterdam airport. Couldn’t even stop to take a picture of the Bulbs and Blooms kiosk which had so many plastic flowers.

A short history of the high five

jkottke:

For the latest installment of Grantland’s 30 for 30 short documentary series, a story on the genesis of the high five and what happened to one of its inventors. This video is chock full of amazing vintage footage of awkward high fives. [Weird aside: The sound on this video is only coming out of the left channel. Is that a subtle homage to the one-handed gesture or a sound mixing boner?]

High Fives are my favorite.

Drying rack for the mister’s screenprinting studio in our basement. It was brown this morning. 8 hours of scrubbing revealed this beautiful powder blue. Studio should be up and running by mid August.

Polly keeps taking out all the paint an organizing it on my table. I told her I would make a painting using just those colors.

When I was little I used to play with all my mom’s spools of thread. Lining them up. Building castles. I have really vivid memories of this.
Polly likes to open the drawer that has all my gouache in it and play with them. These days she wants to like them all up on my table. “Put them in a line” she says.
