Aviator Desk

This is the Aviator Wing Desk by Restoration Hardware. This could be a lot of fun to own! Inspired by World War II fighter planes, I can just imagine setting behind it clad in a bombers jacket and leather cap!

Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

Another beauty from Gran Turismo 5, the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione in black! Such an elegant design. And it only sets you back about 230k. Enjoy.

Ferrari California

I've been addicted to the new racing simulator, Gran Turismo 5 lately. It's a very immersing experience and probably the closest I'll ever get to the real thing. The graphics are phenomenal, the cars beautifully rendered with painstaking detail. Polyphony Studios has been developing the game for over five years, and it shows (in a good way).
Gameplay aside, the game allows you to visit certain locations and photograph the gems in your personal collection. This photography mode has a surprising amount of depth. The camera has all the features of a mid-range DSLR, impressive for a racing game, I know.
Above are some photos of my gorgeous Ferrari California in red. I will be posting more photos as I take them, enjoy.

Concrete House

Above are some shots I found of an ultra-modern concrete house in Madrid. A bit big and extravagant for my taste, but it's still fun to look and marvel at this architectural feat. The contrasting grey walls poses an interesting interplay with the green hillsides and foliage throughout the interior.

iPhone 4

For the longest time I had avoided the allure of the smart phone market. I made common excuses against the added cost, the need, etc. I admit that I couldn't have been more wrong. It's hard to imagine going back to a "normal" cell phone. I use my iPhone for everything now, from scheduling, blogging, web surfing, making notes, keeping in touch... the list goes on and on. Anyway, the purpose of this post is that if anyone is on the fence about whether or not to get this phone, I would highly recommend it.

Found some great work on all fronts from fabio ongarato design. I was especially intrigued by their placemaking (interior space design). Above is my favorite example of their work, the office of CAE. A lot of time and money went into this design, particularly the honeycomb-like shapes on the walls. Fantastic, but probably a cleaning crew nightmare.

Double Tap T-Shirt

Zombies are in right now and there is plenty of media exposure to them. After watching some such media the other night, I had the idea for this design. It is now available via my redbubble storefront, and would make a wonderful Christmas gift. The photos above are from sketch to shirt. I usually don't document my work throughout the creative process like this, but it's kind of nice to see how it all came together.

Parihoa House

If your a reader, you probably know that I'm a fan of architecture. If not, I am. The Parihoa House is one of the closest examples I've found to my ideal residence. It has elegant, modern lines. It is low lying and flows with the environment. And speaking of the environment, that may be the best part of all. It's situated overlooking the Tasman sea on 600 acres of rolling, New Zealand grassland. Wow!

Mount Saint Helen's

Found some amazing photos a couple of months ago of the Mt. St. Helen's eruption on May 18, 1980. Amazing to see the terrifying power of nature. The photos that I found were spectacular and they were coupled with the story and video of a journalist that was on site in Washington and survived the blast.

What Katie Ate

Ran across some threads that pointed to a little food blog called What Katie Ate. Food? I'll admit I was interested, so I checked it out for myself. Bear in mind, I haven't delved too deeply yet, but what I have seen so far has amazed me (so good that I decided to share it with all of you). Instead of trying to explain it myself, I'll borrow Katie's statement: What Katie Ate is a resource of info relating to all things food and drink. It includes recipes and food photography by Katie herself ~ a professional food photographer and food stylist and will feature what's hot and tasty within the Sydney and Australian food scene (with the odd global diversion thrown in here and there for good measure). It also offers tips and links to Aussie and world-wide food publications, food packaging, markets, wineries, gourmet stores, restaurants, bars and cafes.
Anyway, I would definitely encourage all of you to take a look.

All That Glitters Ain't Gold

I was thoroughly impressed when I ran across these projects on Behance tonight. The process of creation for these pieces are just great fun. Instead of handling the layout digitally, these pieces are printed and cut, then meticulously assembled in a three dimensional scene, which gives them their incredible depth. Then the scene is photographed and voilà , stunning posters with visual weight!
