I guess I don't pay attention to youtube trends, so when Emma tagged me as "Rick Roll" in the above image, I recognized the image as from the video to "Never Gonna Give You Up", a song I actually kinda like! Well, thankfully my housemate Robyn educated me with these videos. The last is the actual Rick Astley music video.

yes, I am quoting a Foo Fighters song. Sue me! Here are some things I've been doing instead of work...
thinking about Huitzilopochtli
planning Robyn's birthday dinner
making anagrams out of my name
listening to DK Brainard
adoring Ewan McGregor.

I definitely think that some of the babies are funny in the advertisements you show me. Nevertheless, STOP TELLING ME TO MAKE A BABY.

Since I was a child, I've always loved all things Jules Verne. For pleasure, in middle school I read the Mysterious Island and in high school, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (the disney movie version of this book was a childhood favorite). I guess, my admiration for steampunk is not unfounded.
Of course, I love Jim Tierney's cover designs of four of Verne's iconic adventures. Let me highlight some of the tricks up Tierney's designs...
here's a few other gems from Tierney's site:
I KNOW I'VE BLOGGED ABOUT HIM BEFORE... why won't my search work? David de la Mano does amazing mural work on abandoned buildings, walls, whatever wherever.
His most recent post, a slim piece of peachy paper, bears some of his most poignant work. For me at least.
couldn't have said it better if I tried.

Then there is my valentine- a woodblock stamp. mmm. there's no better way to say "you're in my heart" than with the heady odor of etching ink.
hope you have a good valentine's day!
