Brainstorm Wall Art

June 8, 2009

I did some strolling around at Renegade and fell for Brainstorm. They have so many great silkscreen prints. See what they have for sale here or if you’re going to Bonnaroo (lucky), check out the logo on the Bonnaroo merch. They designed it!

Walls Notebook

I’ve got crazy mad graf skillz. It’s true. You’ve just never seen them because I don’t vandalize property. That is illegal and disrespectful and doesn’t gel with my upstanding lifestyle.

I recently gifted Sherwood Forlee’s Walls Notebook. It’s filled with 80 blank walls to tag. I can’t wait to steal it and burn each page with back-to-back pieces.

You can get a taste of the book here by creating your own emailable piece. And while you’re at it, brush up on the terminology here. Not that I had to or anything.

Box It Up All Pretty Like

Tanya of Bisous, Ciao has shown me how much a difference packaging makes when bringing food to a party or gifting it. As you can see in this photo of her amazing macarons (more on those later), she forgoes the Tupperware and Ziploc bags and instead transports her food in gift boxes, complete with bows and ribbons. Neatly packaged, her desserts have everyone ooohing and aaahing before they even taste them.

Conveniently, just as I started getting into also doing this, I discovered Paper Presentation. They have a wide selection of affordable boxes, ribbons, tags and cards that come in all sorts of colors and sizes. They also have great stuff for invitations and place cards. You can shop online here or hit up their Manhattan store. Oh, and if you’d like to show me your great work by sending me some treats in the mail, drop a note here for my new address.

Faces by Ferran Adria

Ferran Adria, the molecular gastronomist and chef of elBulli (voted the best restaurant on planet Earth) has created Faces, a gorgeous line of flatware. I am in love with this Baroque design. At $138 a setting, you can’t really set each place with these but they’d be a great “just for me” set–the kind of silverware you’d use for each and every thing you eat and no one else could use them. Meatloaf? Of course. French fries? Sure, class it up and use the fork. Olives? Pass the spoon and back off sister.
