Thinking About Florida
Posted at 09:05 AM


THE LAST FRONTIER: Florida, people, Florida! And here’s a walk through a junkyard down there courtesy of Janeen Smith of the National Underground. Lots and lots of swampy, rusted out old cars and their emblems. Lots of stuff to “get cut on” too. Be careful in there. Thanks, Janeen!

GREAT, GREAT TYPE IN THOSE OLD DISPLAYS: Brighton & London Easter 2009 Scary skeletons and great type. Incredible stuff. Weird, really. This is the same deal in Chicago at the Field Museum. No need to change it. What was good for 1968 sure as hell is good in 2009 or whatever. As I was saying. (Sent in by Don Guss! Thank you.)

DAMN, I WANT TO BE AT THIS: House Industries cleans shop. Save me a pile, someone.

POOR, POOR CHILDREN: I’m going over to PSU this morning to “talk to the kids about graphic arts.” The ever obsessive/consumptive Kate Bingaman-Burt challenged me to a cage match with her flock of delicate pupils. You little shits better be ready.

IN WITH THE NEW: Tyler Lang and better half Elsa Chaves came in yesterday for a quick visit. Together they do a deal called, Always With Honor. These kids have some pretty serious talent. They met in Florida. There you go. Florida, again.

Here’s a poster Tyler did for the Ringling School of Art and Design. I’m pretty sure I’ve shown this before on here. I remember seeing it and going, “Man, that’s pretty great.” and screen-grabbing it for my inspiration folder.

Check out this one called, “Glory Of Vermont” that they did. We dig. Hard.

They are thinking about moving to Portland. My stock just went way down. Shit. These kids will do just fine wherever the hell they go. Being nice goes a long way. Nice to have met you, Tyler and Elsa! Thanks.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I donā€™t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog.
