The proof is in the pudding, as they say. If you want to know what I did last night, look at the top of your screen. I finished the graphic for the top of my page.
Google Reader is a big part of my weekdays. I have been a bit better at reading a variety of blogs, but I thought I’d post some blogs that I really enjoy reading. LINK TIME!
http://www.jonesing-for.com/ – Jonesing For… This is my friend Jessica’s (we went to high school together!) food blog. She has some great food photography and recipes. I make a lot of the recipes she posts.
http://seaofshoes.typepad.com/sea_of_shoes/ – Sea of Shoes… I enjoy this blog because I find the girl, a 17-year-old named Jane, totally ridiculous in a very jealous way. She wears fabulous clothes and gorgeous shoes.
http://luxirare.com/ – Luxirare… Her attention to detail with clothing and food is awe-inspiring. And, if you want to laugh, read the comment section. People WORSHIP her.
http://www.jilliantamaki.com/sketchbook/sketchbook.html – Jillian Tamaki is an illustrator based in New York. She updates her blog pretty regularly and has some very lovely ink wash sketches, comics about her bad days, and shows her process between initial sketches and finished pieces.
http://grainedit.com/ – Grain Edit… Grain Edit is a blog/site that finds inspiration from vintage posters, books,etc from the 1950’s to the 1970’s. I love looking at this site for inspiration. The aesthetics of that time were heavy in to shapes, bold colors, and imagery you just don’t see as much anymore. It’s updated very frequently as well.
http://friendsoftype.com/ – Friends of Type… if you like handrawn type, then you’ll probably really enjoy this site. It’s updated frequently with hand drawn type – mostly phrases and not just the straight alphabet. It’s a lot of fun.
http://mashable.com/ – Mashable… Mashable is a site dedicated to news about social media. Up to the minute news about all things Twitter, Facebook, Apple, etc.
