Curated: Nicolas Jolly

Curated: Nicolas Jolly

Nicolas Jolly is a french artist that works primarily with black ink. His work reminds me so much of Vincent Van Gogh’s reed pen drawings it’s crazy.  It’s remarkable how much simple strokes of a pen can illustrate form and movement. Nicolas’ drawings all have a “fingerprint” design that absolutely amazes me. I can’t imagine how he […]

These simple and elegant buttons for Twitter Bootstrap were put together with love by Lipis and can be found here. These buttons are something that I’ve been looking for for a while now.

Curated: River Luna

Curated: River Luna

River Luna is Marisa Redondo’s small shop on Etsy that I’ve fallen in love with. She uses watercolors on archival paper to create intricate paintings of flowers, sticks, butterfly wings, animals and other objects. Simply put her work is beautiful. Her art reminds me of somewhat of aboriginal art in some respects. The white lines, dots, and patterns […]

Buddha’s Hand & Thai Basil Cocktail

Buddha’s Hand & Thai Basil Cocktail

Buddha’s hand is a fruit native to Northeastern India and parts of china. It is arguably the coolest / ugliest fruit known to man. It looks like something you would see in a science fiction movie served to passengers on an post-apocalyptic intergalactic freighter. I need to find this fruit, and make delicious drinks out […]

Bricco and La Panetteria for Lunch

This weekend I stopped by Bricco, an Italian sub / specialty foods store in the North End, and ordered the Panino. After visiting Bricco, which is hidden down an alleyway almost out of site, we stepped next door to the equally hidden La Panetteria where I picked up an olive baguette. Regan and I ate […]

Guide to CSS Support in Email

Guide to CSS Support in Email

This fantastic resource from Campaign Monitor I’ve routinely used for stuff like creating email template, signature lines, and other email related html bits. I would highly recommend giving it a read over, and even using it in conjuntion with Litmus or some other tool before sending out any email marketing communications.

Dunkin Donuts There is a Dunkin Donuts […]

100 Things to Watch in 2014

There are a lot of things on this list that I’ve been watching for a little while now, and have definitely thought are going to gain ground in 2014. I’ve been talking about  Equal Rights for Men for a while now, and for the most part I’ve been greeted by a lot of derision, especially […]
