Wolf In Sheep's Clothing (silver)

I have received many e-mails asking if we were ever going to print this design in a new color. Well the answer is.... YES! This design is now available in silver, and for an added bonus, we have made the print larger! And to answer another question, yes that was our design that was being sold at Urban Outfitters.

Beware the wolf in sheep's clothing because he is bigger than ever! Cheers

Jeff Nishinaka's paper masterpieces

Every now and then I come across something that makes me literally stops me in my tracks, and makes me say... "How did he do that?" I had to take a few minutes to truly appreciate this particular piece from artist Jeff Nishinaka's portrayal of "The Lion King". I can not even begin to imagine how much time it must have taken to painstakingly cut, fold, and crimp each individual piece of paper. Nishinaka's paper masterpieces are world renowned and are bought and collected by celebrities and art connoisseurs from every corner of the globe (ask Jackie Chan owner of the largest Nishinaka collection). To take something as mundane as a plain sheet of white paper, and turn it into an intricate and layered marvel is nothing short of amazing! Wish I could see it up close for myself.

Here is some more of his work:

More aquarium awesomeness

I haven't posted a Monday Motivation in a long time, but I'm going to get back to it. Anyway, many of you probably noticed that I have a special fascination with nature - specifically ocean life. This video was shot by filmmaker Jon Rawlinson at the Georgia Aquarium (which I HAVE TO VISIT sometime in the near future). Jellyfish always boggled my mind because they look so alien, but yet they are some of the most graceful creature that you will ever see swimming in the ocean. Sit back, relax, and stare in awe. Cheers
