Doughnuts are awesome. If you don’t like them, stop reading and go get help. Nothing beats a hot, fresh one (or two) for a balanced breakfast. But what happens when they’re, not so fresh? Mr. Jimmies the Undead Doughnut is a great character design, but artist John Sumrow shares the entire process of bringing it to life and killing it again. Built on a humble base of foil and wire, Sculpey and John’s imagination take care of the rest. So study up, and check out the rest of John’s amazing work on his site.
Antonius Bui may just be a student with a few portfolio pieces on Behance, but these 2 pieces (Your Song and Quotable) appear to be hand-written and then meticulously cut out by hand are incredibly mesmerizing. I love how this effect turns the words into a three dimensional work of art. I don’t know if I would have the patience for such a feat.
With all the hype around The Great Gatsby and the visual aesthetic of the brand, I thought I’d dig a bit deeper. Harold Lohner is the man behind the deco-inspired masterpiece. Pulling from period letter artists like K.H. Schaefer and original designs like Farouk, Harold revived and revamped the energy and excitement of the roaring 20′s almost a century later. There’s a great write up on the typeface and it’s history over on FontsinUse, and more 1920′s inspired designs over on Harold’s type site.

It’s wedding season, and the fine folks at RageHaus are abuzz with road trips and sacred vows. Kim and I are off to New England for two weekend weddings, and a stop over in Brooklyn and Connecticut to visit some old friends. To top off the break, Sebastian and his lady love are taking the big plunge. So, it’s going to be pretty quiet around here until we can catch up on May 21st and do some laundry. You can keep up with all the fine folk of RageHaus on Instagram. Just look for mistermunn, kimberlymunn, sebastianebarb, and carlcandraw. Until then, happy travels to all.
