20×200 Sarah Spitler Print

20×200 Print : No One Can Live Outside of History

So one of Sarah Spitler’s pieces was just released on 20×200 today and it’s totally great.

If you’re unfamiliar with 20×200 they do limited edition prints of new hot artwork in various sizes and affordable prices making it accessible and as they say, “art for everyone”.

I previously loved on Sarah Spitler in this post.

An Incomplete Manifesto for Growth by Bruce Mau

An Incomplete Manifesto for Growth

When I was in college a copy of Bruce Mau‘s Incomplete Manifesto hung on my wall. I loved it—still do. I think I even snail-mailed a copy to my grandmother. We often shared quotes and inspirations via letters—hers customarily biblical, mine increasingly secular.

I’m going to display this again for myself.

Good notions to work by; to live by.

PLYWERK your photos

PLYWERK

I heart Plywerk—I really do. See, they had this ingenious idea to make it super easy for their creative customers to take a favorite photo, mount it beautifully and easily on a sexy piece of wood and display it proudly.

As if that wasn’t enough, if you’re not inclined to do it yourself you can upload your pics and they’ll do it for you AND…

They use sustainable materials AND…

They’re from Portland AND…

They’re cute about it:

It’s easy being green.

We hate to speak out in opposition of a Muppet, but it’s actually very easy to be green. Even self-absorbed artists (not that we are or know any that are, obviously) are taking pains to be earth friendly to our little planet. And we at Plywerk are doing the same.

We use environmentally friendly and sustainable materials whenever possible; always recycle and use alternative energy sources. These aren’t just hippie Northwest terms to us. They’re a way of life.

What’s not to heart?

Obsessive Consumption: What Did You Buy Today?

If you don’t know what Kate bought today, you’re missing out.

She’s a semi-recent PDX transplant (like many of us) and a freakin’ rock-star illustrator (not like many of us) (at all).

Composition

Our most favorite store when we lived in Denver—Composition is located in a fun little area called Belmar. The breadth of great products and vendors is superb and the merchandising makes your eyes smile and your hands want to touch everything!
