The latest edition of Assouline’s Proust Questionnaire is beautiful ~ leather bound and printed on vellum paper with silver foil edges. The filled questionnaire on the cover in gold is a nice touch, and it would look great on any bookshelf. This classic interview question list is quite the personality test ~ Perhaps the best detail is the inclusion of blank questionnaires you can have friends fill out… or turn it in to your new guestbook and really get to know more about who you have in your house… take a peek inside on the next page
Teaser from the Keystone Design Union just came through with these awesome designs featuring iconic creatures of the pacific northwest for K2 Snowboards’ 25 Year Anniversary Collection. I’m already lusting after all of the stickers and shirts ~ everything from owls and beavers ~ bears and deer ~ to bigfoot! Nice black and white, fun “Don’t Mess With The North West” slogan, and illustrations that just scream ROAR. Take a look at more graphics on the next page!

Last night, we previewed the Gooding & Co Auction at Pebble Beach and the collection is mind blowing. Each iconic car flashes you back to a nostalgic time of its own… and of course amongst the fun, i got lost in the amazing details… so here’s a roundup of hood ornaments and a bit more that grabbed me… i think i’m also lusting after classic cars in black and white, but more to come on that later… to the next page!
Cats on scanners, epidermal electronics and a plane that can go from NYC to LA in less than 12 minutes are all part of this week’s NOTCOT.org roundup. To find out more about each post, click on its individual image.
The Thinkspace opening tonight ~ Dabs Myla “The Best of Times” was like stepping into a twisted colorful wonderland ~ think that disney version of Sword in the Stone where the teacups and such come to life at Merlin’s… meet the psychedelic part of Dumbo… and then make it all a little less PG. It was crazy, colorful and a mix of objects coming to life in all of the installations of painted found objects and wondrous typography. You have to see it in person to get the full effect, but take a peek at some of my favorite little moments hidden within the show on the next page!
Penciled skulls, rainbow ants and a house in a book are all part of this week’s roundup from NOTCOT.org. To find out more about each post, click on its individual image.
More fun from Gallery 1988 Melrose’s opening tonight… remember the tiny dino herds i got a few months back? Well Jay Ryan has even more fun migration paintings in this show! Adorable rhinos, mammoths, bison, and brontos… check them out on the next page, or see them in person at the opening tonight!
I haven’t been able to stop staring at the preview of tonight’s Gallery 1988 Melrose show - 2-person exhibition with artists Dan McCarthy and Jay Ryan. Dan McCarthy’s Inception series of acrylic and screeprinting on canvas look stunning in the pictures, i can’t wait to get back to LA and see them in person!
If you’re in LA check out the opening tonight at Gallery 1988 Melrose 7-10pm! Check out the full Inception Series on the next page… only one series of many new pieces in the show!
I love when a graphic can transport you to another world… or make you wish you were somewhere else… just got an email from our friends at the CIA (Central Illustration Agency) with these stunning posters by Jonas Bergstrand for Soho Beach House Miami… beyond the retrotastic look and feel of beach house living… the tiny modern details hidden in each piece are great ~ helicopter, parachuter, and headphones… Take a peek at the three posters and details up close on the next page!
A few weeks ago, Eric Yang of Gear Patrol, was nice enough to step in for me and go on a British adventure with Bentley on behalf of NOTCOT ~ of the MANY pictures he returned with, one of the first to catch my eye were these from Heathrow’s Terminal 5 at the entrance to the First and Concorde Galleries lounges… Troika’s “All The Time In The World” from 2008 looks beautiful. This 22m long electroluminescent wall “extends the conventional notion of a world clock, which commonly concentrates on capital cities in different time zones, by linking real time to places with exciting and romantic associations like far-away places, exotic wonders and forgotten cultures.” The way the text is drippingly formed is fun to watch ~ take a peek at it i the video and pics in the next page.
This week’s roundup from NOTCOT.org includes raging children, never-ending mobius bracelets, a gallery of regeneration and more. To find out more about each post, click on its individual image.

Popculturally ~ i feel like i’ve grown up on Junk Food’s tees ~ they’ve been doing the super soft, perfectly cut, retro-tastic tees since 1998, licensing everything from star wars and branded goods to your favorite saturday morning cartoons for years. Faded in as if you’ve had them for decades, cheeky designs, and a comfiness that always makes them your favorites…
Well, now they are branching into being an Art House! And their inaugural artist is Anthony Lister! With murals popping up all over LA, super heroes flanking the exterior of their space, paintings to tempt you… as well as letting him do his thing to their ice cream truck… and of course two awesome limited edition tees ( womens and mens)… it was a fun art opening/party tonight! Take a peek on the next page at all the visual goodness to indulge in!
