On this Thanksgiving morning, I am grateful for coming across the photography of Susan Sabo on Etsy. All of her photos are original pieces that she prints herself, titles and signs. You can order them in color or black and white, and she does framing too. Every year she donates 10% of her total Etsy sales to shelters & rescues. Happy Thanksgiving, shake it.
Wiksten is an online shop that carries simple luxuries from small, independent companies. I adore their knit caps. The line is designed and handmade by Jenny Gordy out of her studio in Iowa City, Iowa. Jenny worked as a technical designer and fit model in New York City before studying Patternmaking at the Fashion Institute of Technology and then starting Wiksten. Shake it Jenny.
As some of you may know, I was recently hit by a car while riding my bike. Some young thing, late for an exam, just whipped across my lane. It was all slow motion from there. First of all I want to mention that I had just gotten a new Bern helmet (red, of course, to match my red saddle) and it saved my noggin. Didn’t even crack. Anyway, my poor little single speed, which I pieced together myself, is in a bad way. I might get money to replace it. Sadly, this will only be the value of my bike. I’m aiming high so why not blog about one of Kinfolk‘s awesome custom track bikes. They custom design everything from fixed to commuters. I’m currently crushing on the NC Blue 2012. Shake it…and don’t forget your helmet!
Eric Soderberg is a Cross-media artist who works with visual and auditory design. Living in Stockholm, Sweden, he specializes in creating and editing images for print and web. Most of his commercial work is related to retouch, 3D and graphics. One of his many talents is releasing his own tracks on vinyl and providing sound systems with special tunes – so called dub plates. Shake it Eric.
The WAFA Postcard Project, was headed up by Portland’s mixed media artist Brandon Wilson. He collaborated with the WAFA Artist Collective and they sent out postcards for other artists to work on top of. Yes. Shake it Brandon.
I do believe it’s been a while since I have mentioned a fabulous chair. So here it is—the Stuck Chair by OATO Design Office. It was created by taking apart all the elements of an archetypical chair and rearranging them as if they were simply stuck together. This way it doesn’t need additional supports. All the elements now have a supporting role in the total structure of the chair. The chair is made entirely of oak wood and powder coated steel, not to mention it looks super cool. Shake it.
