Leaving for Miami on Friday for a little wedding business, turkey business, and art basel business. Can't wait.
p.s. I might be Murakami's mascot. More on that later.

Sunday Sofia invited me to check out PINTA: The Modern & Contemporary Latin American Art Fair up here in New York, some interesting works, some not so interesting works. A Nelson Leimer piece above. Skateboards came up again by an artist named Sofia Maldo, who lives in Miami if I'm not mistaken. She was doing a live painting, which was being auctioned off and the money is going to sending kids skateboards in Havana. Her illustrations, which I can't find anywhere online, are kind of interesting, like a Fafi girls living the favela life...

I picked up this book, 100% DM: A Book About Direct Marketing,not knowing what to expect. The Japanese like to wrap some books in plastic wrap, so you never know what you're going to get. As the cover states, its pretty much "the ultimate collection of fashionable lookbooks, pop-out invites, and printed promo teasers". If you save invites and paper like its your day job, then get this book.

Swavaroski has sponsored a 70th year anniversary of the Wizard of Oz (in 2009) and had some of the most notable designers design their own interpretation of the Ruby Slipper. They were on display at Saks during Fashion Week, and will now make their way to Art Basel. Definitely going to take a break for "the fine art" to check this out! Jimmy Choo, Moschino, and Besty Johnson's sketches above. They will be auctioned off next year to benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

A page from the Olsen twins new book Influence featuring my personal favorite Diane von Furstenberg.

I sound like a hater again, but not really feeling this album from the band the Bronx... i am feeling the cover though. I love flamingos, they remind me of home.

If you're ever looking for a little design inspiration in Miami, I recommend the Wolfsonian in South Beach. They have an incredible archive of artifacts and graphic design ephemera from the late 1880s to the end of the 1940s (Art Deco, I love you so) While you are there check out Dynamo, the bookstore/copy shop seen above.
