Real Narnia-Like Wardrobe of Awesomeness

November 24, 2010

Christopher Jobson

I would have been the most popular kid in grade school (and let’s be honest, probably high school too) if I had just had a secret Narnia room like this. Designed by Douglas Shepherd of Maple Seed Renovation in Portland who specializes in custom residential remodeling projects. I wonder if he could also build a fireman’s pole into the kitchen and a water slide from the roof? (via dornob)

Monster Friends from Familytree

November 24, 2010

Christopher Jobson

There are a couple of reasons I’m really excited to share these new Monster Friends prints from Familytree with you. First, their last series of posters sold out in less than three days so you probably only have about 10 more minutes to scoop up one of these for your bad self. Second, they glow in the freaking dark. Third, you’ve just gotta go to their web site and find the little light switch toggle beneath the posters to see them in the dark. That’s ten bonus points for their web designer.

Collaborative Father-Son Lunchbox Illustrations

November 18, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Every day since kindergarten Rob Kimmel has sent his son to school with a post-it note and pen inside his lunchbox. On the colored paper is a half-completed illustration and half-completed story that his son then finishes. Holy cow, brilliant. Also really like “My favorite constellation is the Nerd“. I had a friend in grade school whose dad drew intricate pencil illustrations of space ships and scenes on his hard-boiled eggs and I always thought it was the coolest thing. My dad sent me to school with a thermos accidentally filled with red wine, but that’s a story for another day. See also: Axe Cop. (via quips)

The Aakkoset shelf (aakkoset = alphabet in Finnish) by Finland-based Lincoln Kayiwa comes in 8 different colors. Though it might be slightly out of reach for the typical IKEA-going crowd at $21,000.

Photos by Noemie Goudal. Looking at these I was reminded of my favorite picture book growing up, The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. (via all the mountains)
