I withstood posting this 2011 lunar calendar poster from Dmtr.org last week in part because I’ve posted ten billion calendars this month, but also because it was missing the all important buy link. Well, I’m caving. The buy link mysteriously appeared this weekend and this sweet print is all yours for a mere $50.
In my first college photography class we were frequently given 1-2 hours of shooting time to leave the photo building and venture out into downtown Chicago to knock out a roll or two of film. I found it enjoyable to be taking pictures during class but always felt slightly defeated knowing that thousands of students before and after me would be venturing out into a small radius around school shooting pictures of the exact same buildings, streets, and parks. What type of skill and eye would it take, to pass by the same thing seen by hundreds of passersby each day and recognize instantly the beauty and uniqueness of an image? It seemed almost impossible. It’s clear in Yojiro Imasaka‘s vertical shots of New York alleys that he posses just such talent. Something incredibly beautiful out of the completely mundane. (via pytr 75)
Designed by Norwegian firm NorthernLighting, this lamp is the polar opposite of those cardboard cut-out animal heads that are all the rage lately.
Moo is a full scale wall-mounted Norwegian light moose head. Moo may be used both for indoor and outdoor decoration purposes. The figuratively shaped lamp body is made of poly-resin material, which gives a smooth and transparent flow of light. The bulbs placed inside the horns add an extra element of soft, sparkling and translucent light effect to the lamp.

New work from French illustrator Florian Nicolle who layers ink, paper, paint and some subtle Photoshop editing to create these wonderfully messy images. Many more images and an interesting “step by step” over on Behance. (via in freaks we trust)
A collection of shots from the 2009-2010 basejumping season in Europe using new wingsuit prototypes. These guys balls are so huge I can’t imagine how they possibly stay airborne. Learn more over at Phoenix Fly.
For the ladies! Chicago-based Etsy artist bethtastic is rockin the hand-cast resin bangles. The film negative one is especially beautiful. (via hovering cat)
Totally blown away by these etchings by Denver artist Jason Thielke. I bet this guy knew how to use a spirograph as a kid. Found on the exceptional Pattern Pulp.
Though it’s not quite my personal style I was instantly drawn to the sculptural quality of this awesome recycled bicycle furniture by Matt Shiley. Each piece is one of a kind and available here (though the coat rack sold). (via werd)
