East of Eden is one of my very favorite classics. One that I was happy to discover is a part of Kathryn Macnaughton’s series of Steinbeck cover art for Penguin Books UK. Kathryn is a Toronto based illustrator/graphic designer who combines shapes, photos and illustration to create beautiful work.

I’ve been reading, or rereading a bunch of the classics lately. In doing so, I stumbled across these beautifully illustrated book covers by Mikey Burton. They’re a box set that he designed as part of his theses at Kent State. As far as I can tell, the set “Rest, Relax, Read” is not available for purchase. Bummer! You can however purchase the cover art on a t-shirt, from the guys over at Out of Print. You can also read a little more about Mikey in the interview that FaceoutBooks did with him.

It’s official: as of 0900 mountain time, Ronald Joseph Arron Burgundy is back.

I absolutely love this song. So sad, so real, and so poignant. This is Delta Spirit’s latest video. The entire album is streaming online here. And if you love this song as much as I do, you can download it for free. Enjoy.

*Thanks Kelly McCormick for turning me on to this.

A friend sent me this little gem with the warning that it’s a little long, but “DOPE ISH”.

Graffiti artist TILT was commissioned to design a room for the Hotel Au Vieux Panier. This is what he and a few of his friends created.
