Have a safe & fun weekend!

Edwyn Collins is for the birds

The ever-cool Edwyn Collins, who suffered a massive stroke a couple years ago, has been writing and performing music again. On top of getting back on the music, during rehabilitation he was making use of his left hand. Thus, he's been sketching birds of Britain! Utterly awesome. He's got an exhibition in London, so if you're around there be sure to go out and support the show! At Smithfield Gallery until November 15th.

Now, let's revisit the first reason he's cool...

Mockingbird Lager

I don't know how I feel about this on beer, but the design by itself is lovely! Feels like a mystery novel cover to me actually. The bottlecaps are great as well. Design by Samantha Wiley. (via dieline)

Happy Friday!

love this sketchbook entry from Marieke Berghuis. Herons are truly awesome!

working on some wreaths for a show at store opening in a cpl weeks so I've been pretty busy all week (besides being sick). So happy I quit my job so that i can work on things like this, though I have to watch my spending til the next one! I did make room Wednesday though for night out of tapas, a screening of my favorite Truffaut film( Shoot the Piano Player) and a drink at one of my favorite bars.
