COULDN’T GET DOWN HERE FAST ENOUGH THIS MORNING: It’s Monday and I got in at 7:23 am, fired up for the new week. I’ve got a pile of stuff going, and will be in here late hammering on things like snowboard graphics, an identity revamp, gocco cards, new ads for the upcoming shred season, Snowboard mag templates and a top-secret project I can’t wait to tell you beasts about, but have to keep my big trap shut.

Busy as hell, and just as thankful. Let’s get to work, freedom fighters!

A FASCINATING CURATOR OF DESIGN HISTORY, AND, SOME PAINT: Not only does Ms. McFadden maintain one of the most incredible Flickr accounts on the web, but she also paints. Please check out her beautiful, geometric paintings. Been a fan for some time now. Thank you, Ms. McFadden.

Also, check out her Vignelli set. Not to be missed.

She’s one of the gems of the Northwest! (Sent in by Mr. Sturgill.)

I don’t have much extra scratch these days but you got me hooked. My one DDC pen is lonely so I ordered it a friend. Can’t wait for mystery.
