Pantone Pen Prints

prismacolor.jpgSometimes the simplest of things combined with some patience render the most beautiful results… and in the case of Daniel Eatok’s Pantone Pen Prints ~ 73 results… and i wish i knew about these back in 2006 ~ because they are not only beautiful but incredibly cheap as well! The bottom layer being 1₤ and working its way up to the top laying being 73₤. Basically, he balanced a set of 288 Pantone Pens on their nibs and let the paper soak it all in over the course of a month. More images below, i can’t stop staring at them, and am dying to run out and set up my own to try! Found this over at Bobby Sattler’s Whole lot of BS.

verabee.jpgCould it be? That you readers are right and the image below is the work of the incredibly inspiring Verabee? Aka Vera Brosgol? And even if it isn’t, i’m so glad that the comments on the last post have opened my eyes to her breathtaking body of work! That combined with the music on the gift guide have somehow managed to perk me up substantially today in what has otherwise been a rather drab holiday week. So go check out her seriously impressive portfolio at Verabee.com. Thanks, Robbio and Miss Madeline!

trapped.jpgI’d like to take this xmas eve to have a totally random nonsensical post. This image popped up when i was cleaning out old emails, i have no clue what it is other than escape.gif… rstevens of Diesel Sweeties tends to leave random images to sign off emails. And its been mesmerizing me on my desktop… i feel like she looks some days! And on more randomness ~ HAPPY BIRTHDAY! To dan, who’s taking this cofounder/dev/save-the-day role for NOTCOT fulltime and letting that corporate silicon valley gig go.

Xmas in Brussels

treesdara.jpgDara is back in Brussels for the holidays, and just sent me a quick email with the most incredible mural she wandered past… “I was out in town yesterday during the day in this chic area called Sablon, where they have all the famous chocolate shops, on my way to the grand place, i stopped at this beautiful mural on a door out in the middle of nowhere!” Anyhow, it was such a nice combination and a great use of the physical space, i had to share it with you as well! She’s also attached a picture of the infamous manneken pis all decked out in his santa gear… Now she’s making me think of those climbing santas i saw all through belgium last time i was there in the holiday season!

eyescapes.jpgRankin is an incredible photographer who has shot celebrities, covers, editorials, etc… but these Eyescapes at the Art Department are absolutely mesmerizing. It truly changes what you imagine when talking about *really* looking into someone’s eyes.

From The Amazon

amazon.jpgOn random holiday gifts ~ my father and sister just got back from the Amazon ~ and brought me a pile of amazonian craftiness. It’s pretty incredible what they can carve into a brazil nut! (the snake, octopus, and ant)… and although these certainly aren’t the same as getting to have their incredible adventures living on a boat ~ fishing and exploring the Amazon ~ wrestling caymans ~ capsizing dingies ~ following monkeys ~ playing football barefoot on the beach ~ and watching a million and one species of insects smack into the boats lights nightly… these are still pretty fascinating! Also check out the spear below that you tie a string to, mount on a bamboo stick, and use to fish the old fashioned way…

Ghost Prints

casper1.jpgAlso in the Coudal Swap Meat ~ Four glow in the dark ghost prints by Billy Davis ~ “This set of four prints was hand-screened at Crosshair Press in Chicago, and each features a glowing ghost in various ill-advised endeavors.” Adorable… yet just twisted enough.

Lucky White Squirrels

squirrelposters.jpgI love that space where biology meets design meets infographics… i just found this awesome set of two Lucky White Squirrel Posters by Moi Moi at Coudal’s Swap Meat Gifted! “The Lucky White Squirrels limited edition print set was originally produced as two 4’x 8’ panels for a squirrel themed art exhibition held at a Toronto gallery located across from a park where a resident population of albino squirrels live. Working with the punnet square and the network diagram this idiosyncratic info-graphic based artwork explains why seeing an albino squirrel is lucky. The first print, a network diagram, illustrates the mix of genes it would take to create albino progeny from a pair of squirrels each carrying the recessive gene for albinism. The second, in real numbers, illustrates squirrel for squirrel the 1:20,000 odds that this would occur.” Purchaseable here for $60.

1207dbros1.jpgNOTCOT Note: Here’s another article from Anna Corpron of Sub-Studio!

D-BROS is the product arm of advertising and graphic design firm, Draft Co., Ltd. I love almost everything that comes out of D-BROS - very witty 2-D and 3-D products. The Jewelgraphy card above would be great as a stocking stuffer (or as a card). It reminds me of the costume jewelry I used to play with as a kid, only cooler. After the jump are a few of D-BROS’ 2008 calendars. I love how actual ribbons are incorporated into the design of the Ribbon calendar. The Joy by Day by Toy calendar starts as a blank slate but comes with a pack of coded stickers that allow you to decorate it on an as needed basis.
