Sally Scott


Mark this entry under, “I don’t speak Japanese, but the pictures look cool”.
I randomly found this Japanese woman’s wear line called Sally Scott, based out of Tokyo, I think. I was searching for stuff relating to an art director named Atsuki Kikuchi who works for Bluemark, when I came across these and was totally taken be the photos. The colors are absolutely perfect, and the styling is really cute as well.

Uniqlo Paper Vol. 2

Uniqlo, the Japanese GAP (but way better), has released Uniqlo Paper No. 2, and it has lots of great photos in it. The one’s above are from Ryan McGinley’s summer vacation, and there’s also some Terry Richardson stuff and some great kids photos. So if you’re in New York, check it out, and send me one!

Yugo Nakamura

Early this morning I randomly stumbled upon Yugo Nakamura’s site, YUGOP. Yugo seems to be an interaction designer, and his site has a bunch of fun programs that involve black circles of differing sizes that fall out of the sky which you can throw around and change sizes of. Okay that sounds really weird, but it’s fun, haha.
There are also a bunch of fun sounds that go along with the site as well, it really makes me want to put fun sounds on it (but I definitely won’t)!

Mini’s New Clubman

The Mini, probably the hottest, small car in the world, is going to be getting a big brother sometime next year. Dubbed the Clubman, it has 5 doors, a small door on the right side and two large doors on the back, and is a lot longer than the Mini. I likened it to a sedan version of a Mini, which is a weird idea, sort of.
But I think I like it, they definitely did a good job of sticking true to the brand, but offered something a little more new and exciting. Unfortunately, these guys won’t be showing up till nexy year sometime, and who knows which countries will be receiving one.

For more info on the car, click here, and for a bunch more pictures, click here.

Digg Labs / Arc

As a daily reader of Digg, I think this is pretty rad. Arc is a new way to view Digg, created by the Digg Labs. It looks like a giant sunburst, with every ray representing a news story. The larger the ray is, the more Diggs the post has received.
Also, people who post more than once are linked by a transparent thread, so if you liked what they’ve Dugg, maybe you’ll be interested in something else they’ve posted. It sure beats stuffy, old CNN…

A Nice Night For A Walk

As I’m writing this it’s 10:22 PM, and it’s still 74º… blah.
Jeff and I took a walk around the neighborhood tonight, taking pictures of whatever we come across. There were a lot of nuts and weirdos all over Hollywood Blvd., but I took mostly pictures of buildings and inanimate objects, I’m too shy/afraid to approach people.

Tony Law

I was reading an article Wired online this morning about China and how they’re trying to “green” themselves for the upcoming Olympics. The article was called Smog and Mirrors, and as I scrolled through it, I was totally taken by the photos. They were taken by a photographer named Tony Law who unfortunately I couldn’t find much out about. I did find the he was born in Hong Kong in 1978, and that he was picked as one of PDN’s 30 Under 30 of emerging photographers.
On his site he has 9 different galleries, with his Chinese Landscapes being my favorite. I love how he uses long exposures and his colors are always extremely vibrant. Also be sure to check out the rest of his galleries as well though, they’re all extremely well done.

You can also check out more of his photos under the cut.

Ultimates 3 Cover by Joe Madureira

Ultimates 3 Cover by Joe Madureira

NERD ALERT! If you don’t like comic books, you should probably just skim on by this one… haha.
The picture above is the new cover of Ultimates Vol. 3, which is going to be drawn by Joe Madureira and written by Jeph Loeb. The image is absolutely fantastic, showing a bunch of the Ultimates and non-Ultimate characters. There will be another half to this cover as well, featuring the villains as well. My favorite person in the whole cover is Quicksilver at the bottom right.
It’s about time Joe Madureira got onto a big time book like this instead of wasting his time on silly projects that don’t go anywhere. Hopefully he keeps the awesome work!

Christopher David Ryan

Christopher David Ryan is an awesome illustrator/designer based out of Brooklyn, NY. I love his super clean style, it reminds me of books I’d read when I was a little kid. He also has a fun little shop where you can buy prints of the work on his site called My Little Underground. Really reasonable prices for really fun work.
