For some reason the folks over at Facebook let awesome illustrator/painter David Choe paint basically they’re entire office building. I wonder who at Facebook knows him to get him to do something like this? You can check out more of the interior’s here and here.
Linda Kostowski makes real “fake” watches out of metallic leather.
These would be so awesome for girls to wear! Check out more of her stuff over at +Real Fake Watches.
This is the new KAWS x Nexus 7 Bearbrick collaboration for Medicom.
I just like it because it’s black and made out of wood, haha… oh and the fact that I love KAWS’ stuff so much. It comes out May 26th and will be about $450.

Wonderwall, the Japanese architecture and interior design, is one of my biggest inspirations and has been for a couple years now. Instead of building just a building, why not build an entire experience for people? That’s how I translate Wonderwall’s outlook on design.
They consistently create amazing spaces, and are constantly pushing the boundaries of design.
They just recently updated their website with a few new projects, but I’m guessing most people have never even heard of these guys. They are the people I strive to be like.
I just think this image is awesome. For a man who can hardly move a muscle in his body, he looks like he couldn’t be any happier.
Despite being really lame and putting an “X” in the name, this is soooooo rad. Why don’t cars look like this already? Who wouldn’t want this car?? Thank god for Toyota stepping up the hot looking hybrids. Maybe hybrids will be the way to get futuristic cars onto the road, instead of shitty looking Fords.

You Are What You Grow by Michael Pollan
This is a really interesting article concerning the farm bill, something that I had no real knowledge of before reading this. I guess it basically gives farmers money based on how much of their crop they grow. But it’s sort of become twisted and being used to fund the junk food industry more than anything.
In the article they use the point of, why is it cheaper to by a pack of Twinkies then a bunch of carrots? Shouldn’t it be the other way around? It also goes into detail about how the bill effects other countries, immigration issues, and how we’re all getting fatter because of it.
Really interesting read.
This guy has the raddest photos. France based photographer Cédric Delsaux takes our favorite Star Wars characters and puts them into very moody, modern French environments. I guess he uses toys or models and places them into the photos? It looks really rad no matter what it is. Sort of like if the Star Wars characters were in THX 1138 or The Matrix.
