Listening room

I really need to get back to listening to Audible (I even have two credits) ... instead of the news and screaming obscenities at the radio. 

I might try this as well, LibriVox, Free Audiobook Collection. They have a nice blog for monthly picks. Sanity, is important and there is nothing better than to escapte into a book story on the drive to work in traffic.

“Seeing Nature” typeface

Celebrate natural shapes and flowery letterforms with this fanciful nature alphabet called “Seeing Nature.” This font is a bit different from other OpenType fonts we usually feature at because it is provided to you today in the form of a great big image file, where you need to select each letter, then copy and paste the full-color letter images to create new colorful words. It is an image file you can open and use in Photoshop. These letters word create at the Minneapolis Institute of Art as part of a fontmaking workshop at the museum’s Third Thursday event recently, in conjunction with AIGA-MN and the MN Landscape Arboretum. Seeing Nature typeface here.

Sticky situation

My obsession with cactus art continues. I really, really need to make or buy some of these. I have a couple of birthdays coming up ... I am thinking a sticky present. 

 These very graphic wooden cactus from Urbanmasquerade ... are just too adorable.
