A Towering Message of Paper

I know this may appear to be quite the waste of paper, but this three stacks of paper (each with 7,500 sheets are a great use of a ream of paper. Take a look at the inkjet printing on these!

The Art of Clean Up

I enjoy organizing things in my life, mainly files on my computer and tidying up around the house. What if someone brought that same passion for sorting things to everyday scenarios.

Swiss artist and author Ursus Wehrli takes chaotic and unorganized scenarios and utilizes his inner OCD and organizes each.

Action Pencils

Love! Each day, you could grab a pencil and complete the action. Action Pencils by We Are What We Do, a non-profit organization that gives all profits from their stationery line directly to schools and community projects.

These pencils bear six of the 131 actions items that We Are What We Do list as ways to make someone’s day, make your home a bit greener and overall, do a little chunk of good. I really hope the organization comes out with a giant box of 131 Action Pencils. A vibrantly colorful desk and a happier life would be the end result I think.

Just one pencil (with Action 124: Don’t worry if you make a mistake) has a rubber on the end.

Move, Learn, Eat

Last week I posted each one of these videos on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. Figure I should post them together since most people don't follow me in all three.

3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films.

Vinyl Record Exposures

Awesome long exposures of vinyl revolving turned to prints. Genius idea and love the gradients of colors.





My Grandpa Jud used to play records for me all the time as a kid. I would sit on his floor while he propped his feet up, sat back in his worn leather chair, and smoked apple tobacco from his pipe. Whether it was rock or gospel, grandpas head would nod to the rhythm of the beat. I would always know what record was playing by the spinning colors and patterns in the center of the player. The rotating gradients would put you in a trance, only to be stopped by grandpa changing the record.

Buy the prints here.
