Toys

August 26, 2009

Sometimes you see a¬†project that is just so simple in it’s creation and execution that you get a little upset for not having thought of it yourself. Like this project by designer Ed McGowan, who has started taking awesome photos of his son’s toys.

I Heart NY Tees Are So Over

I love this tee from ONLY NY. Check out their site for a bunch more. And if perhaps you feel like getting me one, I’d reward you in high fives and friendship.

Okay, Michael Kors

I’m fairly certain that if a designer on Project Runway sent a model out dressed like this, you’d call it something like a “God awful futuristic nightmare fashioned out of pillows and a little girl’s stuffed animal”, then send them home crying. Because it looks like the Cheetos cheetah is trying to insert this woman’s head into his anus.

Cool Bible Cover

February 12, 2009

Yeah, you read that correctly.

Courtney sent me this really cool redesign of the cover of the Bible, and I think it’s just super awesome.

I’m so jealous of people who can do shit like this. I mean, my lewd drawings barely even offend the average person.

Head on over to Crush to see more of their work.

The Showtime House

October 15, 2008

Last night, my friend Ryan and I attended a party at the Showtime House in Gramercy Park hosted by Thrillist. And let me just tell you guys, the place was utterly amazing.

A $20m, four floor, 19th century mansion was renovated with different Showtime series as the inspiration for the rooms. Click here for a video about the process, where each designer speaks about their task, as well as what show acted as their inspiration.

The house was nothing but spectacular. I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to attend many different events throughout NYC, but none compared to what was offered here at the Showtime House. Ryan and I both took a lot of pictures, which I’ll post here in a few days, but here are a few of my favorites taken from the site…

Californication Study

The chandelier is made entirely of paperclips, creating a very intricate shadow on the ceiling when lit at night.

Californication Book Tower

Californication Book Tower

The tower in the back is comprised of books stacked in circular, brick pattern.

Weeds Lounge

I was told that this room is 80% hemp, with the screen made of rolling papers and the artwork hung with roach clips.

Dexter Dining Room

Dexter Dining Room

Both chandeliers are made from wine glasses. Blood is splattered strategically across the entire white dining room, with vials of blood as the centerpieces.

You should definitely go to the Showtime House site to check out more pictures and learn more about each of the rooms. And if you’re lucky enough to live in NYC or planning a trip here soon, you can go visit the house yourself. It’s open Saturdays and Sundays from 11am – 4pm until October 26th and is located at 23 Gramercy Park South. Tickets are $25, and all proceeds go to the Happy Hearts Fund.
