Norway's new pixel money

jkottke:

This is the design that Norway has chosen for their banknotes starting in 2017:

Norway Pixel Banknote

From now on, I’m paying for everything with kroner. (via co.design)

I literally gasped when I saw this. I just want to go make make orange and blue drawings now.

The yellow pillow has been sold out since this summer but there are a few pink ones left (and on sale!) at Urban Outfitters!

AND right now they’re running a 50% of sale promotion. Snap em up!

Morning light in the studio.
My “new” (year old) space has good light for working but is smaller. I’m down to one shaded dormer window from two third story full sun windows. It’s fine for working but I’m not as in love with my photos in the space.
Morning light is absolutely beautiful though- and smaller room and a more powerful light makes for good night working.

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.
