With Talent, With Gusto

TRUST IN THICK LINES: A Maine marauder, smelling of lobster and pine sap, makes his presence known on the DDC factory floor sometime back, and we sit on it. Our shortcoming. Today, we post a little on the guy: Matt Payson knows how to work the thick lines. Here’s proof. See above, too. Rad shit, all around.

THE YOUTH ARE HUNGRY: And they are aiming for you, working designer. With talent. With gusto. Long story, short: You are screwed. Me too. The youth are on their way up, and our stock is going down. I can tell you this much: I’m not going down without a fight.

Here’s what I’m talking about: Martie Flores is a happy, smiling little design nugget who’s but a mere Junior across the river at Portland State University, and he’s gonna do big things with work like this. Our hunch.

Plus, his name is “Martie.” How cool is that? Keep up the good work, man. And stay on the West Side!

WEIRD AS HELL, AND EQUALLY AS AWESOME: Here’s some weird/awesome photo fuckery Nakamoto sent over. Brilliant.

LONG LIVE THE LONGS DOGS: 21 days of sidepipe sleeping! Now that’s the life. Long dogs. Wood stove. Maine. Long dog breath. Side sleepers. Love this shit. Again, Matt Payson! Thank you, man. Great, great shit. For Gary!

love that matt payson link - curious Draplin - what do you use to keep all these bookmarks organized ? - i’ve been using Delicious for years but with tags like “awesome, inspired, fuckin’ hell” it’s not the best library of inspiration.
