Artist Envy: Erin Jang

Erin Jang art directs for Martha Stewart Living. Let me say that again: Martha Stewart. I couldn't be more entranced with the latest postings on her blog. Be sure to check out the video of how they created these layouts. So talented.

Two of the fellas I used to work with at Spunk are part of the band Artifact Shore–currently included on Wire magazine's Wire Tapper 25 compilation (which can be found in the April issue). Congrats, boys!

Japan Inspired

I will be purchasing both of these items in support of Japan. Both are so lovely, it's a no brainer.

Commute Snafoo

Yeah, I was a bit late to work today. Funny enough I take 62 and 35... both closed. Crapcakes.

Gosh, now where am I going to find my date on Friday?

Completely Obsessed

It's a sickness. I can't stop listening to the radio archive of old This American Life episodes. Is it bad that I feel like Ira Glass is my long lost BFF (my fondness for him was cemented when he admitted in this episode that he and his wife watched The OC! What hipster actually admits that!? Love it.)

Went to see Michael Hart of Mono speak at the Walker Art Center tonight as part of the Insights series. The highlight for me was when he shared this Daily Show clip. Evidently Mono re-branded MSNBC and then all of the other news stations re-branded too... well, maybe not so much re-branded, but stole MSNBC's new brand... just watch and see.

Sleeping Porch

I just love the sound of it. Sleeping Porch. Two fantastic ideas, combined. This image from Design Sponge makes me want to curl up on a spring afternoon with a novel for a nap.

Color Inspiration

I overslept this morning, as in seriously overslept. I awoke 8 minutes after I'm supposed to leave the house. I managed to get to work only 1 minute late (thank you traffic gods!), but now in my no-makeup, ponytail and re-worn sweatshirt look I've got going today, I could use a little pretty to drool over.

Enter 100 Layer Cake. I'm LOVING these colors, patterns and those little bowls in the upper right! Lovely.

Completely jealous of this *Honest Tea (get it!?) mug... the workspace is pretty enviable, too.

Nice type.
